ROSAS-ESPINOZA, Verónica Carolina et al. Distribution of some amphibians from central western Mexico: Jalisco. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2013, vol.84, n.2, pp.690-696. ISSN 2007-8706.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7550/rmb.31945.

The amphibian fauna from central western Mexico has not been studied thoroughly. Particularly for the state of Jalisco, until 1994 the majority of herpetofauna checklists were made on seasonally tropical dry forest at the Pacific coast. Recently, the herpetofauna checklists for some natural protected areas and surroundings of central and northeastern localities of Jalisco were reported. Sierra de Quila is a natural protected area located in central Jalisco, and these results are part of the first formal study for this area. During 15 months, from January 2009 to September 2010, we surveyed amphibians on an altitudinal gradient including all vegetation types: cloud forest, pine-oak forest, oak forest, riparian forest and tropical deciduous forest. We registered 11 noteworthy range extensions for amphibians within Jalisco and into the Sierra de Quila.

Palavras-chave : range extension; protected area; Sierra de Quila.
