Resumo


The home range distribution of the lizard Homonota uruguayensis was studied from May 2010 to January 2011 on a rocky outcrop in the municipality of Rosario do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil. The study was conducted in four seasonal field trips that lasted 13 days each; data was collected in 6-hour shifts, day and night. The area was covered randomly every turn, using the method of capture, mark and recapture. Marking was performed by placing numbered aluminum rings. The individuals’ home ranges were estimated through the Minimum Convex Polygon method and displacements were calculated for individuals which were recaptured only once. There were no differences found between home ranges of non-reproductive and reproductive individuals. Females had greater home ranges and displacement than males, a fact possibly related to the behavior of communal nest building of the species.  Information on the ecological aspects of this species is relevant since it is categorized as Vulnerable (VU) in the Brazilian list of species threatened with extinction by the criteria B1ab (iii).
