                         determine the environmental health of a community, however, the 
                         crescent need on defining how these processes act, triggered the 
                         development of new methods that could classify the organisms and 
                         their function at the habitats. Here we used the anuran larvae to 
                         understand the effects of an environmental gradient on the 
                         structure and organization of the anuran assemblages along it, and 
                         to access in a realistic form, the actual state of preservation of 
                         the largest remnant of Atlantic Rainforest on the Southernmost 
                         portion of Brazil. We found that despite the higher diversity of 
                         species and the conservation unit status of the place, the 
                         ecosystem itself is still in danger, given the low number of 
                         functional groups and thus a higher number of ecosystem services 
                         that can be lost.",
