Serpentiform body is a morphological adaptation present in several groups of animals. This body shape is often associated with snakes, which can result in the indiscriminate killing of animals. Despite their great socioeconomic and ecological importance, snakes are commonly associated with feelings of aversion, fear, and disgust, that may lead to t...

In snakes, behavioral differences between sex and body size can positively influence locomotor performance and metabolic rate. Evidence suggests that larger body size can positively influence the locomotor performance of snakes and affect the metabolic rate of individuals. However, the influence of sexual variation on locomotor performance may not...

In Squamate reptiles, vitellogenesis in females is marked by an increase in the number and size of follicles, leading to an increase in aerobic metabolism to support the rising energy demand during reproductive activity. Male gametes are smaller than female gametes, and spermiogenesis requires less energy than vitellogenesis. This investigation com...

Citizen science is the interaction of the non-academic community in scientific studies, often extended to collaborative platforms. We analyzed 168 photographs shared in a Brazilian citizen science platform to understand the feeding interactions between birds and snakes in Brazil, comparing our findings to published data. We searched for patterns in...

Urban green areas are an important instrument for the conservation of wildlife. However, urban habitats are fragmented and often isolated, resulting in a decline in species richness. Faunistic inventories in urban green areas significantly increase the knowledge on biodiversity and contribute to the understanding about impacts of habitat loss and f...

A partir do momento em que notamos haver um cenário particularmente interessante no Estado de São Paulo com a criação de três programas de pós-graduação nas áreas de Ecologia, Evolução e Biodiversidade, percebemos que seria a oportunidade de promover um evento que reunisse pesquisadores para um debate mais amplo a respeito do tema. Assim, em 2016 f...

Resumo Bothrops jararacussu is a terrestrial snake, predominantly nocturnal, and mainly found in forested areas. Our objective was to provide the first record of B.jararacussu for the municipality of São Paulo, in the highland of Parque Estadual da Serra do Mar (PESM), Núcleo Curucutu. The register ocurred through monthly samplings in the Núcleo C...
