Raimundo Nonato Lima Freire, Isorlanda Caracristi

This work seeks to present a biogeographically study aiming the proposition of a wildlife corridor in the Serra da Penanduba area (CearĂ¡, Brazil), as an important alternative to mitigate the isolation effects among the conservation units and, mostly, the environmental impacts on this region. To this end, this work is divided into three parts: the first is a previously established planning conduction (laboratory), the second is the performing of fieldwork (observation, collection and herbarizing) and the third is the produced data analysis. The main results shows that Serra da Penanduba presents, in its slopes, a preserved vegetation of Arboreal Caatinga in its top, typical species of Dry Forests besides being a transition between the Caatinga Enclaves Moist Forest and the Caatinga of Sertaneja Surface, characterizing itself as a propitious environment to the flora conservation, to the fauna protection and to the proposition of a wildlife corridor.
