Abstract

We intend to determine the potential distribution of four anuran species that had their distribution presumably reduced by habitat destruction. Specifically, we will model the species distribution considering: a) only climatic variables; b) climatic variables and original vegetation cover; and c) climatic variables and actual (fragmented) vegetation cover. Therefore, we expect to find differences on the extent of occurrence of species among the maps generated by different variables. These differences is expected to be related to the vegetation cover of the selected geographic area.
