In 2010 a mammal survey was conducted in an ecotone region (including páramo and temperate forest) on the eastern slope of the Andes in Sangay National Park, Ecuador. Sherman traps, Tomahawk traps, pitfall traps, and mist nets were used to collect mammal specimens at two sites (3,400 m elevation and 2,962 m elevation). A total of 169 specimens representing(More)
A mammal survey was conducted at 2500 m on the eastern slope of Volcán Sumaco, Napo Province, Ecuador. Volcán Sumaco is located east of the eastern slope of the Andes. The mountain is isolated from the eastern cordillera of the Andes by the Río Cosanga and Río Quijos River Valleys. The ecosystem of the survey area is Temperate Mountain Forest (Sierra 1999).(More)
In 2008 a mammal survey was conducted in humid tropical forest on the western slope of the Andes near the town of Santa Rosa. Sherman traps, tomahawk traps, pitfall traps, and mist nets were used to collect mammal specimens at two sites (450 m elevation and 702 m elevation). A total of 113 specimens of 32 species were collected from the survey area.(More)
The rapid diversification of Myotis bats into more than 100 species is one of the most extensive mammalian radiations available for study. Efforts to understand relationships within Myotis have primarily utilized mitochondrial markers and trees inferred from nuclear markers lacked resolution. Our current understanding of relationships within Myotis is(More)
In 2014, a mammal survey was conducted in an ecotone region (including páramo and temperate forest) on the Eastern Versant of the Andes in Carchi province, Ecuador. Sherman traps, Tomahawk traps, pitfall traps, and mist nets were used to collect mammal specimens at two sites (3,340 m elevation and 3,650 m elevation). A total of 142 specimens representing 14(More)
In this study, the genetic substructure and morphology of the species Neusticomys monticolus was evaluated. A nuclear marker and mitochondrial maker were used to examine phylogeographic structure and to estimate genetic distances. Two statistical measurement analyses were applied to morphological data. These data recovered two morphologically distinct(More)
