Latest version published by National Zoological Collection of Suriname (NZCS) on Apr 24, 2019 National Zoological Collection of Suriname (NZCS)

A team of 17 scientists covering various taxonomic groups surveyed the Paloemeu River watershed from 8-29 March 2012. They visited four sites: The Upper Paloemeu River, a granite peak of the Grensgebergte Mts., the Makrutu Creek and the Middle Paloemeu River, including the Kasikasima Inselberg. The team collecting amphibians and reptiles consisted of Rawien Jairam and Stuart Nielsen. This data set contains a few collected specimens.

Project Data

A team of 17 scientists covering various taxonomic groups surveyed the Upper Paloemeu River watershed from 8-29 March 2012. Four sites were visited: The Upper Paloemeu River, a granite peak of the Grensgebergte Mts., the Makrutu Creek and the Middle Palumeu River, includingthe Kasikasima Inselberg.

Title Rapid Biological Assessment of the Upper Paloemeu River watershed (Grensgebergte and Kasikasima) of Southeastern Suriname.
Identifier BID-CA2016-0006-REG
Funding Suriname Conservation Foundation, World Apparel LLC, Waivers, and Band of Gypsies
Study Area Description The area is covered with Mesophytic tropical rainforest and the Paloemeu river is een clear water river with many rapids. The most southern part of the area is the Grensgebergte Mts. Along midstream of the Paloemeu River is a high inselberg, the Kasikaima Mountain.
Design Description Surveys were conducted from the various camps along the river and mountain tops, during day and night.

The personnel involved in the project:

Principal Investigator
Rawien Jairam

Stuart Nielsen

Sampling Methods

The sampling methods included walking pre-established trails at various times of the day. Passive frog call surveys performed at night.

Study Extent The Upper Paloemeu River, the Grensgebergte Mts., the Makrutu Creek and the Middle Paloemeu River, including the Kasikasima Inselberg were sampled once.
Quality Control The data was identified with the use of field guides and or amphibian call libraries and some cases the specimens were rechecked by foreign scientists.

Method step description:

  1. 1. The amphibians were collected using line transects and vocal recordings during night and day surveys. Reptiles were collected by hand when encountered. 2. The specimens were labeled in the field and after identification a collection number was assigned to each specimen. 3. Tissue samples were collected for DNA analysis. 4. The specimens were first preserved in formaldehyde and then transferred into 70% Ethanol. 5. All specimens were identified to species using literature and keys.
