The Atlantic Forest is considered one of the 25 hotspots of great importance for the conservation of the planet's biodiversity (Myers et al., 2000), among other reasons, for housing approximately 550 species of amphibians, which about 86% are endemic (HADDAD et al., 2013). Information about the natural history of these species, such as habitat use, diet and intra- and interspecific interactions (Greene, 1994) are essential in order that necessary conservation measures could be defined and implemented (Greene, 1994; DAYTON, 2003). From the data obtained between April 2013 and March 2014 in a survey of Anuran community at Farm ETA, municipality of Sete Barras, SP, will be given continuity to the project during the year 2015, using the description of the community structure focusing especially on diversity, reproductive and spatial distribution and temporal aspects.
