Abstract:The road mortality characteristic of reptiles were studied on the Ring Changbai Mountain Scenic Road, Toudao Road and Baishan Road in Changbai Mountain National Nature Reserve from 2007 to 2014. Road mortality of reptiles were recorded by direct counting method and the total length of sampling road was 1568 km. The results showed that, a total of 391 road killed reptiles, belonging to 5 species were recorded, and the average mortality was 2.5/10 km. The most vulnerable reptile was Elaphe dione, accounting for 49.9% of the total mortality. The mortality of reptiles in Ring Changbai Mountain Scenic Road was significantly differed with Baishan Road (Mann-Whitney Test Z=-3.333, P=0.001) and Toudao Road (Mann-Whitney Test: Z=-2.473, P=0.013). The highest mortality was observed in Toudao Road with the smallest roadbed width. The mortality of Gloydius saxatilis in different months was significantly different (Kruskal Wallis Test: X2=13.404, df=5, P=0.020). The monthly total mortality of reptiles was not significantly correlated with the monthly traffic volume by Pearson test (R=0.423, P=0.407). Accordingly, some protective measures of reptiles were provided.
