We conducted a single 2-day visual encounter survey (VES), which consisted of counting the number of individuals present in each survey area over a specific time period (30).
Herpetofaunal abundance in the forests found 500m on either side of the road was assessed during dry (December-May) and wet (June-November) seasons using time constrained visual encounter survey (Heyer et al.
I used a modified version of a visual encounter survey during day visits to locate and count frogs (Crump and Scott 1994).
Dfence = drift fence, Cboard = coverboard, Hopnet = hoop net, WetVES = wetland visual encounter survey, TerVET = terrestrial visual encounter survey, Fvocal--frog vocalization survey, and Indntl = incidental observation.
Lake visual encounter surveys (VES) were also completed by the USGS (1996-2001, 2006) to assess the apparent abundances of amphibians in the lake.
Dip nets were also used during visual encounter surveys to capture amphibians in the pond and site tributaries.

The individuals of Cycloramphus brasiliensis were sampled in September and October, 2004 and between July 2007 and March 2010 using Visual Encounter Surveys (Crump and Scott, 1994) performed by transects, in two localities of Atlantic Forest in the state of Rio de Janeiro, southeastern Brazil: the Estacao Ecologica Estadual Paraiso (22[degrees]29' S and 42[degrees]55' W; elevation 150-290 m) and the Reserva Ecologica de Guapiacu (22[degrees]24' S and 42[degrees]44' W; elevation 40-400 m).
Timed visual encounter surveys were conducted from 15 April to 12 June 2006 at MFSFWA where researchers would walk the perimeter of the marsh and search the vegetation for turtles.
Visual encounter surveys were the most effective method for surveying amphibians and reptiles for both abundance and diversity; however, other techniques were necessary for certain species, i.e., call surveys for anurans.

A herpetological inventory was conducted using a variety of field techniques including visual encounter surveys, drift-fence/pitfall traps, aquatic turtle traps, and road cruising.
