. Species-richness was estimated on the basis of the species accumulation curve (e.g. Colwell & Coddington, 1994 ). In a species-accumulation curve, the cumulative number of species is plotted against a measure of cumulative sampling effort. As sampling-effort increases, the rate at which new species are

factors on the species richness of native amphibians. This method of analysis is commonly used to model the abundance of a species according to one or several covariates. We here intended to use this method to model the species richness, by considering species as individuals, after verifying if our data

Introduction Biologists have long discussed the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms underlying large scale spatial patterns in species richness (Chown and Gaston, 2000 ). Reptiles generally have narrower distributional ranges than other vertebrates such as birds and mammals (Anderson
