Abstract:Field surveys were carried out to investigate the resources of amphibians and reptiles in Songshan Nature Reserve, Beijing from 2009 to 2010. A total of eleven species (two orders and seven families) were recorded, including ten Palaearctic species and one Oriental species, among which six species of reptiles recorded in a previous survey in 1991 were not found. These species are Eremias argus, Dinodon rufozonatum, Elaphe rufodorsata, E. davidi, E. bimaculata, and Rhobdophis tigrina. Among the five habitats investigated, the grassland possess the highest biodiversity. Rana chensinensis (mainly located in stream) and Eremias brenchleyi (mainly located in rock cliff) were the two species with the highest population in amphibians and reptiles respectively. Those areas with higher biodiversity would be the priority that require to be protected in conservation practices.
