Sampling Methods

The monitoring was divided into three schedules throughout the day (9 a.m. to 1 p.m., 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.) covering a total of 12 hours by four persons, during 11 field trips with a duration of five days each.

Study Extent We conducted surveys during 2018 and 2019 during both the dry and wet seasons, within a pristine cloud forest and managed sites from 800 m a.s.l. to above 2,200 m a.s.l in Santa Cruz Tepetotutla, San Felipe Usila, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Quality Control To ensure we obtained records for species that have different activity patterns and habitat use, we carried out diurnal and nocturnal surveys in forest gaps, crops, streams and primary forest, searching microhabitats where herpetofauna take refuge, such as beneath rocks, inside burrows, under fallen logs etc.

Method step description:

  1. Every time an organism was encountered, its biometric data and geographic location were recorded using a GPS device (Garmin 64st) with 5 m error range. All organisms were photographed and released afterwards.
