Abstract

Predators of the nest building gladiator frog, Hyla faber, in southeastern Brazil Marcio Martins1, Ivan Sazima2, Silvia G.

Amphibians are claimed to be important components in the diet of many predators (Duellman and Trueb, 1986), although only few attempts have been made to document the diversity of predators of a particular frog species and the effects of predation on its populations (e.g. Schaub and Larsen, 1978). Most data on Neotropical anuran preda- tors are sparse or anecdotal, but a few detailed natural history studies provided impor- tant information on this topic (e.g., Kluge, 1981; Ryan, 1985).
