Resumen

LEYTE-MANRIQUE, Adrian; MORALES-CASTORENA, Juan Pablo  y  ESCOBEDO-MORALES, Luis A.. Seasonal variation of the herpetofauna at the Cerro del Veinte, Irapuato, Guanajuato, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2016, vol.87, n.1, pp.150-155. ISSN 2007-8706.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rmb.2016.01.002.

In this study the diversity of amphibians and reptiles from the Cerro del Veinte, Irapuato, Guanajuato was analyzed and compared for rainy and dry seasons in a tropical dry forest. A total of 23 species were recorded, 6 amphibians and 17 reptiles of which 22 were collected in the rainy season and 12 in the dry season. The frog Hyla eximia was the most abundant amphibian species for the rainy season, while the toad Anaxyrus compactilis showed low abundance in both, dry and rainy seasons. For reptiles, the most abundant species during the rainy season were the collared lizard Sceloporus torquatus, and the turtle Kinosternon integrum, and in dry weather, the spiny lizard S. spinosus. This work contributes to the understanding of diversity patterns in seasonal tropical environments providing current information on the herpetofauna for the municipality of Irapuato, laying basis for the development of ecological studies and conservation plans for amphibians and reptiles on the site.
