Abstract:Since the establishment of Ningxia Liupanshan nature reserve, there were few reports concern on the survey of amphibians and reptiles. In order to master the status of background resources of amphibians and reptiles and evaluate the biological diversity of this nature reserve, the resources of amphibians and reptiles in the nature reserve were investigated for seven times from July, 2011 to July, 2013. Combined with the documented literatures, there are 14 species of amphibians and reptiles, belonging to 2 orders, 7 families and 9 genera, accounts for 50.0% (28) of amphibians and reptiles of Ningxia; among of which, there are 5 amphibians, belonging to 1 orders, 3 families and 4 genera, accounts for 71.4% (7) of amphibians of Ningxia, and 9 reptiles, belonging to 4 families and 5 genera, accounts for 43.8% (21) of reptiles of Ningxia. Amphibians and reptiles species of the nature reserve are mainly Palearctic realm species (8) and cosmopolitan species (5), as well as 1 oriental realm species. After compare the fauna similarity (AFR) to the neighboring nature reserve, we found there is regular replacing phenomenon in different nature reserves with latitudinal rising.
