Food Habits and Seed Dispersal by the White-Eared Opossum, Didelphis albiventris, in Southern Brazil
The food habits and seed dispersal promoted by the marsupial Didelphis albiventris were investigated in two forest fragments of Curitiba, southern Brazil between February 1995 and February 1997 and it is concluded that this omnivorous opossum must be an effective seed disperser in southern Brazil.
Mammals from Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil
There are 151 mammal species reported or collected in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, comprising 10 orders and 29 families, and Cerrado was the richest domain followed by Pantanal.
Ecology of the ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) in the Atlantic Forest of Southern Brazil
The nocturnal pattern recorded is probably related with prey activity, since it is suggested that ocelots adjust their movements to the probabilities of encountering local prey, or with an evolutionary factor, aiming to avoid competition/predation with larger cats.
Use of the space by the opossum Didelphis aurita Wied-Newied (Mammalia, Marsupialia) in a mixed forest fragment of southern Brazil
Males probably searched primarily for mates during the breeding season being less opportunistic than females in feeding habits, yet their space use did not correlate to food consumption.
Comparative lengths of digestive tracts of seven didelphid marsupials (Mammalia) in relation to diet
Cada segmento do tubo digestivo destes marsupiais foi medido e as diferencas encontradas foram estatisticamente testadas usando a Analise de Variância e de Covariânia.
Mammal occurrence and roadkill in two adjacent ecoregions (Atlantic Forest and Cerrado) in south-western Brazil.
The greater number of species (overall and threatened) and the greater abundance of species records in the Cerrado suggest that this ecoregion has a greater biodiversity and is better conserved than the Atlantic Forest e coregion, in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, south-western Brazil.
Population ecology and reproduction of the white.eared opossum Didelphis albiventris (Mammalia, Marsupialia)in an urban environment of Brazil
The seasonal variation in numbers of individuaIs, causes for death, breeding season and litter size of the whíte-eared opossum, Didelphis albiventris, were studied in two small urban forest fragments
Abundance changes and activity flexibility of the oncilla, Leopardus tigrinus (Carnivora: Felidae), appear to reflect avoidance of conflict
Results provide evidence that oncilla may thrive even in harsh environments where other cats have already been extinct, and raise interesting conservation insights, as in the absence of other cats, L. tigrinus may assume a top predator role of these impoverished vertebrate communities.
Food Habits, Home Range and Activity of Didelphis aurita (Mammalia, Marsupialia) in a Forest Fragment of Southern Brazil
The black-eared opossum proved to be an insectivorous-omnivorous marsupial consuming invertebrates, fruits and vertebrates, and revealed quite exclusive home ranges that could imply the defence of a territory.
