BIODIVERSITY OF PARASITES ASSOCIATED WITH AMPHIBIANS AND REPTILES FROM MIDWEST AND SOUTHEAST REGIONS OF BRAZIL

Abstract

Brazil presents one of the richness fauna in the world, being the first in the rank of amphibian biodiversity and the third in the rank of reptile biodiversity. Although many studies address the diversity of parasites in animals from the Neotropical region, some may present misidentifications of taxa. The objectives of this project are to identify and characterize the hemoparasites and helminths biodiversity in amphibians and reptiles from the biomes Cerrado, Atlantic Forest, and the Floodplains (Pantanal), which are considered the main biomes in biodiversity for these animals. The study will be conducted in São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Mato Grosso, and Mato Grosso do Sul states, where the animals will be captured. Samples of blood and tissues (spleen, liver, kidneys, heart, and lungs) will be collected for hemoparasites detection and analyses, and all organs will be observed for the presence of helminths. In addition, the ectoparasites found on the animals will be collected, identified and, if possible, related as hemoparasites vectors. The identification of amphibians and reptiles parasites (hemoparasites and helminths) will help future studies on biology and its influence on the health, ecology, and reproduction of these animals in nature.
