A New Amazonian Species of Micronycteris (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae) with Notes on the Roosting Behavior of Sympatric Congeners
TLDR
A new dark-bellied species from the lowlands of northeastern Peru is described and its diagnostic external and craniodental characters are documented, highlighting the importance of nonconventional collecting methods for future studies of phyllostomine diversity in Neotropical rainforests. Expand
A New Species of Peropteryx (Chiroptera: Emballonuridae) from Western Amazonia with Comments on Phylogenetic Relationships within the Genus
TLDR
A molecular phylogenetic analysis of unlinked loci from each of the four genetic transmission systems of mammals independently corroborated the placement of the new species of doglike bat (Peropteryx) as the sister taxon to a clade that includes P. leucoptera and P. macrotis and suggests that transparent wings, the traditional character used to diagnose Peronymus, is not a unique synapomorphy.

ON THE DIAGNOSTIC CHARACTERS, ECOGEOGRAPHIC DISTRIBUTION, AND PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF Gracilinanus emiliae (DIDELPHIMORPHIA: DIDELPHIDAE: THYLAMYINI)
TLDR
Analysis of morphological and molecular data suggest that G. emiliae is the sister taxon to other analyzed species of Gracilinanus, the biogeographic history of which is likely to be complex. Expand
Evidentiality and double tense in Matses
The Matses language of the Panoan family, spoken in Amazonian Peru and Brazil, has one of the most intricate evidential systems ever described, requiring speakers to precisely and explicitly codeExpand
Roosting Ecology of Amazonian Bats: Evidence for Guild Structure in Hyperdiverse Mammalian Communities
TLDR
Cross-classifying bat species by trophic and roosting guilds suggests that the often-reported deficit of gleaning animalivores in secondary vegetation by comparison with primary forest might reflect habitat differences in roost availability rather than food resources. Expand
Reported Speech in Matses: Perspective Persistence and Evidential Narratives
In Matses reported speech, the personal, spatial, and temporal indexicals of the reported speech act must be maintained from the point of view of the original speaker, thus resembling a strict formExpand
Mammalian Diversity and Matses Ethnomammalogy in Amazonian Peru Part 3: Marsupials (Didelphimorphia)
This report is the third in our monographic series on mammalian diversity and Matses ethnomammalogy in the Yavari-Ucayali interfluvial region of northeastern Peru. Based on taxonomic analysis ofExpand
Matses Indian rainforest habitat classification and mammalian diversity in Amazonian Peru
The Matses Indians of northeastern Peru recognize 47 named rainforest habitat types within the G61vez River drainage basin. By combining named vegetative and geomorphological habitat designations,Expand
