The fruit phenology of the wolf's fruit, the main food item in maned wolf's diet, was monitored counting the fruits produced in 20 marked plants, and wolves are selective with regard to some food items, particularly thewolf's fruit during the dry season.
Subsidies for a poorly known endemic semiarid biome of Brazil: non-volant mammals of an eastern region of Caatinga
These findings corroborate the importance of using complementary methods for sampling small non-volant mammals in the Caatinga and indicate that the mammalian fauna of this region, suffering a severe anthropogenic pressure, requires strong measures for its preservation.
Small non-volant mammals of an ecotone region between the Cerrado hotspot and the Amazonian rainforest, with comments on their taxonomy and distribution.
The aim of this study was to survey small non-volant mammals and analyze the species composition, richness, and endemism in order to test the above hypotheses, and to contribute to the increasing knowledge of the mammalian fauna of the Cerrado.
Cytotaxonomy and DNA taxonomy of lizards (Squamata, Sauria) from a tropical dry forest in the Chamela-Cuixmala Biosphere Reserve on the coast of Jalisco, Mexico
A combined karyological and molecular genetic approach was used to genetically characterize 13 lizard species belonging to seven families that inhabit the dry forests of the Chamela-Cuixmala Biosphere Reserve and found a karyotype different from that previously described in other localities.
Mammalia, Chiroptera, Phyllostomidae, Vampyrodes caraccioli (Thomas, 1889): range extension and revised distribution map
The present note reports the first record of the bat Vampyrodes caraccioli (Thomas, 1889) for the state of Sao Paulo, southeastern Brazil, based on the collection of one adult specimen in Nucleo Sao
New data on the distribution, natural history and morphology of Kunsia tomen-tosus (Lichtenstein, 1830) (Rodentia: Cricetidae: Sigmodontinae)
The distribution, natural history, and morphology of Kunsia tomentosus are updated from museum data, literature and personal communications, and the stomach morphology is described for the first time, which exhibits a derived unilocular-pouched pattern.
Colonization process of the Brazilian common vesper mouse, Calomys expulsus (Cricetidae, Sigmodontinae): a biogeographic hypothesis.
Spatial analysis using a clustering method and the Monmonier's algorithm suggested that the Rio São Francisco is a biogeographic barrier to gene flow and indicated that this river may play a role in the incipient speciation process of these subpopulations.
Bats of the Paranã River Valley, Tocantins and Goiás states, Central Brazil
The aim of this study was to survey the chiropteran fauna of the Paranã River Valley, analyzing the species composition, richness and endemism, and to contribute with the increasing knowledge of the mammalian fauna in the Cerrado, since the northern portion of this biome is one of the most poorly known.
Wiedomys cerradensis Gonçalves, Almeida and Bonvicino, 2005 (Mammalia: Rodentia: Cricetidae) in Tocantins and Goiás states, central-northern Brazil
We report two new localities for the rodent species Wiedomys cerradensis Goncalves, Almeida and Bonvicino, 2005, previously known only from its type locality, in southwestern Bahia state, and one
