Domestic dogs as an edge effect in the Brasília National Park, Brazil: interactions with native mammals
Edge effects are a well-known result of habitat fragmentation. However, little has been published on fragmentation, isolation and the intrusive influence from the surrounding matrix at the landscape
Activity patterns of nine phyllostomid bat species in a fragment of the Atlantic Forest in southeastern Brazil
TLDR
Seasonal, monthly and hourly activity patterns of nine bat species were studied based on their capture rates at the RPPN-FMA and the hypothesis of reduction in competition for nectarivorous and frugivorous species are rejected.
Effectiveness of scat-detection dogs in determining species presence in a tropical savanna landscape.
TLDR
The effectiveness of scat-detection dogs in detecting presence of five species of mammals threatened with extinction by habitat loss is determined: maned wolf, puma, jaguar, giant anteater, giant armadillo, and giant anteaters.
The coexistence of two frugivorous bat species and the phenology of their food plants in Brazil
TLDR
Analysis of faeces produced by captured bats revealed that there is a significant difference in diet between the two species, allowing the food specialization that may be an important mechanism of resource partitioning between C. perspicillata and S. lilium.
Resource Selection and Its Implications for Wide-Ranging Mammals of the Brazilian Cerrado
TLDR
Novel, noninvasive methods are employed to determine the relative importance of resources found within Emas National Park, as well as identify landscape features that promote persistence of wide-ranging mammals outside reserve borders and those features and their landscape compositions that should be prioritized for conservation.
DIET, HABITAT USE, AND HOME RANGES OF SYMPATRIC CANIDS IN CENTRAL BRAZIL
TLDR
Food items consumed by sympatric maned wolves, crab-eating foxes, and hoary foxes were investigated in the Cerrado of central Brazil to determine overlap among their diets, with Syntermes termites being the most important food item.
Density of the Near Threatened jaguar Panthera onca in the caatinga of north-eastern Brazil
Abstract We report the first estimate of jaguar density in the semi-arid caatinga biome of north-eastern Brazil. During August–October 2007, in the Serra da Capivara National Park, we used camera
Bat frugivory in a remnant of Southeastern Brazilian Atlantic forest
TLDR
Piperaceae, Solanaceae, Cecropiaceae, and Guttiferae were the most important food resources for frugivorous bats at RPPN-FMA, and Piper infrutescences were consumed by Artibeus obscurus, A. fimbriatus, Carollia perspicillata, and Sturnira lilium throughout the year.
Home ranges of translocated lesser anteaters Tamandua tetradactyla in the cerrado of Brazil
Abstract Eight lesser anteaters Tamandua tetradactyla rescued from the rising waters of a dam at Serra da Mesa, Minaçu, Goiás, Brazil, were tranlocated to other areas and tracked using radio
