Testudinidae Testudo graeca graeca Emys orbicularis Mauremys leprosa Trachemys scripta elegans A project financed by the Autonomous National Parks Organization was initiated in 2003 in order to design and carry out a Program of Monitoring of Natural Processes and Resources in Doñana National Park. Monitoring is an observation process repeated in time and space on one or more environmental elements in accordance with a pre-established protocol using comparable data collecting methods (Hockings et al. 2000). The purpose is to provide quantitative, objective and contrastable information, to: Evaluate the effects of management methods, Give support to decisions-making, Detect tendencies, Gather information on system variability, Use as a survey system. We present here the program designed for monitoring amphibian and reptiles that is being implemented at present as well as its selection process and design. We monitor: Doñana amphibian community: presence/absence and evidence of reproductive success; Ephemeral ponds; Semi-seasonal lakes; Spur-thighed tortoises: distribution and population structure; Native freshwater turtles: distribution and population structure; Exotic freshwater turtles: distribution and Saurian fauna: distribution and relative abundance.
