The genus Dermanura Gervais 1856 (Chiro pte ra: Phyllostomidae) includes some of the most common fruit-eating bats of the Neotropics. The combined geographic range of congeneric species extends from central Mexico to Bolivia and southern Brazil (Handley, 1987). As a rule most species are found in lowland forests (Patterson et al., 1996; Reid, 1997),(More)
The paucity in acquiring information on the biology of species greatly contrasts with the high rates of habitat destruction and extinction. Basic biological questions (e.g., where a species lives? how common or rare is it? and, what structures it uses as roosting sites?) remain largely unanswered for the majority of species in the planet (Wilson, 1999).(More)
The aim of the present study was to obtain genetic parameters for resistance to ticks, gastrointestinal nematodes (worms) and Eimeria spp. in Nellore cattle, analyze the inclusion of resistance traits in Nellore breeding programs and evaluate genetic selection as a complementary tool in parasite control programs. Counting of ticks, gastrointestinal nematode(More)
