Protected areas and unpaved roads mediate habitat use of the giant anteater in anthropogenic landscapes
The drastic reduction of the Brazilian Cerrado has transformed this savanna hotspot into vast swaths of commodity-based agriculture fields, mainly soybean, sugarcane, and beef-production
Finite element and morphological analysis in extant mammals’ claws and quaternary sloths’ ungual phalanges
The results obtained for the fossils and the extant species were able to indicate possible habits for these Pleistocene ground sloths, and the three mylodontid sloths: G. robustum, L. armatus and S. leptocephalum showed a preference for strenuous activities such as digging, while M. jeffersonii and M. americanum learned more towards a less specific locomotor habit, such as generalised terrestrial mammals.

A review of camera trapping for conservation behaviour research
Three promising areas of study are discussed: (1) documenting anthropogenic impacts on behaviour; (2) incorporating behavioural responses into management planning and (3) using behavioural indicators such as giving up densities and daily activity patterns.
