Monitoring this area of the Central Suriname Nature Reserve was focused on amphibians. The team consisted of Paul Ouboter and Rawien Jairam. During the 2009 trip the entomologist Conrad Gillett joined the team and consequently apart from amphibians and reptiles, a few insects were collected as well.

Sampling Methods

Most records concern sightings and calls. A few interesting specimens were collected and compose this dataset.

Study Extent The Raleighvallen-Voltzberg was sampled 6 times.
Quality Control The data was identified with the use of field guides and or amphibian call libraries.

Method step description:

  1. 1. The amphibians were collected using line transects during night and day surveys. Reptiles were collected by hand when encountered. Insects through active sampling. 2. The specimens were labeled in the field and after identification a collection number was assigned to each specimen. 3. The specimens were first preserved in formaldehyde and then transferred into 70% Ethanol. The insects were dried and then pinned. 4. All specimens were identified to species using literature and keys.
