The central aim of this project is to produce an inventory of the anuran species that occur in São Paulo State, Brazil. As a consequence of the inventory we expect to reach the following aims: (1) to collect specimens of different species from São Paulo State, as a way to improve scientific collections; (2) the resolution of taxonomic problems as a way to evaluate more precisely the real diversity of anuran species in São Paulo State; (3) to tape record the vocalizations of anurans to expand the anuran vocalization collection, as a way to assist species identifications and resolution of taxonomic problems; (4) to study the life cyc1es of the species; (5) to evaluate the conservation of the ecosystems in São Paulo State based on the conservation of the anuran populations; (6) to identify isolated species/populations threatened by extinction. We intend to publish the results of this project in scientific periodicals, as well as to use our results for the education. (AU)
