Species distribution modeling (SDM) predicts the species distribution by the association among climatic variables and known occurrence records of a given species. This methodology either represents a promising alternative to generating species distribution in poorly sampled regions or for those taxonomic groups lacking specialists. Although Brazil is considered the richest country in re...
Ecological niche modelling is widely used among ecologists to generating areas of climatically suitable areas for species distribution, including in climate change scenarios. Then, with the intuit to contribute for efficient conservation actions, including future scenarios of climate change, we aim to elaborate predictive models of anuran species distribution in the Cerrado hotspot. The...
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 d...

Although water is probably the most important physical factor affecting the ecology of terrestrial organisms, animal groups can respond differently to a given environmental variable. Amphibians are particularly influenced by abiotic variables, due to their permeable skin (where cutaneous gas exchange occurs), as well as their dependence on aquatic and terrestrial habitats during their l...
