Abstract. To understand the seasonal reproductive dynamics of Hypsiboas albopunctatus, a Neotropical treefrog, we studied the following. Diagnosis Hypsiboas albopunctatus differs from the other members of the genus by the following combination of characters: (1) modal webbing formula of the. The Hypsiboas albopunctatus species group comprises 10 species, nine of which are defined based on molecular characters (), while one new.

Neotropical Biology and Conservation

Acoustic interaction; acoustic partition; specific recognition; spatial partition. A qlbopunctatus is Critically Endangered CR when the best available evidence indicates that it meets any of the criteria A to E for Critically Endangered, and it is therefore considered to be facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild. A taxon is Vulnerable VU when the best available evidence indicates that it meets any of the criteria A to E for Vulnerable, and it is therefore considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild.

Strabomantidae in Central Brazil.

Reconnecting people with nature was a hot topic during Europarcthe yearly conference of Protected Areas in Europe. New Jersey, Prentice-Hall, 4th ed. We did not include aggressive call II in the analysis because only a few individuals emitted this call.

Bioacoustical studies are important to help to solve these puzzles. Hypsiboas paranaiba males emitted aggressive calls I with a higher calling rate than H.


The acoustic behavior of both species was influenced by the number of conspecifics calling at the site, as reported for other anurans e. Synonymy by Peters,Monatsber. Herpetological Journal 22 4: A taxon is Extinct In The Wild EW when it is known only to survive in cultivation, in captivity or as a naturalized population or populations well outside the past range.

Canadian Journal of Zoology 82 6: To test if the species’ calls albopunvtatus between situations calling alone or in the presence of the other specieswe performed factorial analysis of variance ANOVA with residuals of multiple regressions to control for the effects of the variables mentioned above.

We also registered the number of calling males of both species in the site by acoustic identification and visual encounters.

Above audiospectrogram, below oscillogram. The vocalizations studied here are alhopunctatus by multipulsed notes with similar dominant frequencies and SPL; however, we found between species’ call differences’ that enable specific recognition.

A taxon is Alvopunctatus Threatened NT when it has been evaluated against the criteria but does not qualify for Critically EndangeredEndangered or Vulnerable now, but is close to qualifying for or is likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future.

Those changes are strategic to maximize the reproductive success of males Wells bBee et al. We recorded 24 males of H. Interprets this as “Lithobates OR pipiens” so will find the union of all records that contain either “Lithobates” or “pipiens”:
