Abstract

This paper is a review of the biodiversity of herpetofauna described so far to Ñacuñán Biosphere Reserve. It provides updates on the current taxonomic nomenclature and conservation status of the species of amphibians and reptiles cited for the reserve. It is also addressed the list of specimens from the reserve that are fixed within the herpetological collection of the Argentinian Research Institute of Arid Lands (IADIZA). In this review, changes were recorded for 50% of the nomenclature of the species of amphibians and almost 70% of the reptile species for the Reserve cited so far. Thus we present here an updated list of species and their conservation status as an outreach scientific activity.
