Grant number: 13/04076-1
Support type:Regular Research Grants
Duration: October 01, 2013 - December 31, 2015
Field of knowledge:Biological Sciences - Morphology - Cytology and Cell Biology
Principal researcher:Shirlei Maria Recco-Pimentel
Grantee:Shirlei Maria Recco-Pimentel
Home Institution: Instituto de Biologia (IB). Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP). Campinas , SP, Brazil


Recently, the systematics of anurans has been modified based on DNA sequencing, external morphology and karyotype studies. In some anurans groups, intra- and intergeneric relationships remain uncertain. The goal of this project is provide new characters that can, in association with molecular and cytogenetic data, help to understand the intra- and intergeneric relationships of Pseudopaludicola in the subfamily Leiuperinae and with other Leptodactylidae genera.
