Tracing the Paleobiology of Paedotherium and Tremacyllus (Pachyrukhinae, Notoungulata), the Latest Sciuromorph South American Native Ungulates – Part I: Snout and Masticatory Apparatus
TLDR
A more profound understanding of the feeding habits of pachyrukhines further allows the suggestion of paleoecological factors that could have contributed to niche segregation between these long-term coexisting rodent-like taxa.
Population Size and Diet of Bush Hyrax Hetrohyrax brucei (Gray 1868) in the Isolated Romanat Michael Church Forest in Northern Ethiopia, Implication for Conservation
TLDR
There is a growing concern that the population of bush hyrax in Northern Ethiopia may become locally extinct from demographic and/or genetic stochastic factors causing an increase in the already high mortality rate.
Fluctuations in bush and rock Hyrax (Hyracoidea: Procaviidae) Abundances Over a 13-Year Period in the Matopos, Zimbabwe
TLDR
A positive relationship existed between AI of H. brucei and rainfall of the previous austral summer, suggesting that annual precipitation contributes to fluctuations in abundance of this species; synchronous fluctuation of the two species suggests a common response to other regulating factors.
Seasonal variation in the degree of heterospecific association of two syntopic hyraxes (Heterohyraxbrucei and Procavia capensis) exhibiting synchronous parturition
TLDR
It is predicted that an increase in the association of the two species of hyraxes when offspring were present would lead to larger groups, thus enhancing the ability to detect predators and reducing the vulnerability of young.
PR OO F ON LY Rock hyrax ( Procavia capensis ) den site selection : preference for arti fi cial sites
Context. Objective assessments of habitat requirements for endangered species are often lacking when planning management strategies, and inappropriate landscape manipulation can sometimes turn an
What do ossification sequences tell us about the origin of extant amphibians?
TLDR
Analysis of the cranial data support a monophyletic origin among lepospondyls; a monophical origin among temnosponyls, the current near-consensus, is a distant second; all other hypotheses are exceedingly unlikely according to the data.
Elaboration and Innervation of the Vibrissal System in the Rock Hyrax (Procavia capensis)
TLDR
The possibility that hyraxes, like manatees, are tactile specialists with vibrissae that cover the entire postfacial body is investigated, indicating that this distribution may represent the ancestral condition for the supraorder Paenungulata.
Predation Risk can Drive Cycles in Zoonotic Disease Prevalence
TLDR
This work combines mathematical metapopulation models of hyrax behavioral ecology, as well as compartmental models of disease dynamics, to investigate the effect of microhabitat alteration and varying perceived predation risk on disease incidence.
Temporal changes in prey composition and biomass delivery to African Crowned Eagle nestlings in urban areas of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
TLDR
The importance of protecting the Durban Metropolitan Open Space System (D’MOSS zones) zones for the persistence of this Near Threatened raptor species, and populations of its prey in urban areas for its breeding success is emphasised.
Occipital condyle width (OCW) is a highly accurate predictor of body mass in therian mammals
Background Body mass estimation is of paramount importance for paleobiological studies, as body size influences numerous other biological parameters. In mammals, body mass has been traditionally

AN INTRODUCTORY STUDY ON THE ECOLOGY OF HYRAX (DENDROHYRAX BRUCEI AND PROCAVIA JOHNSTONI) IN THE SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
TLDR
A discussion on the possible evolution of the kopje-dwelling habit is held, which concludes that reconvergence may have taken place as a result of forest giving way to woodland and plains.
The hyrax: a most mysterious mammal
TLDR
The article reviews the following topics: physical characteristics, physiology, vocalisation, and diseases/presators of small herbivorous mammals which occupy a wide range of habitats from coastal rocks, alpine moorland, and dry savannah to dense rainforest in Africa and parts of the Middle East.
Earliest Known Procaviid Hyracoid from the Late Miocene of Namibia
TLDR
A new species of procaviid hyrax is reported from Namibian cave breccias dating to the earlier part of the late Miocene, and the possible relevance of the new fossil for the origin and radiation of the family Procaviidae is discussed.
THE FEEDING BEHAVIOUR OF BOCK HYRACES (genera PROCAVIA and HETEROHYRAX) IN KENYA
TLDR
The relationship of hyraces to the ungulate stock is supported by a number of similarities between the feeding behaviour of modern hyrace and ungulates.
Higher taxonomic relationships among extant mammals based on morphology, with selected comparisons of results from molecular data.
TLDR
Significant differences between the findings and those of recent investigators include the dissociation of Pholidota from Xenarthra and the plesiomorphous position of Lipotyphla within Epitheria.
The annual testicular cycle in an equatorial colony of lesser rock hyrax, Heterohyrax brucei

TLDR
Adult males from a colony of lesser rock hyrax found near the equator in Kenya exhibited an annual cycle of testicular activity characterized by intense spermatogenesis and elevated androgen status from May to July, which contradicted the prevalent belief that equatorial hyrax breed all year and suggested that the testicular cycle is a conservative element of hyracoid reproductive strategy.
Evidence on mammalian phylogeny from sequences of exon 28 of the von Willebrand factor gene.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among 27 extant mammalian species were studied using sequences of exon 28 of the gene encoding von Willebrand Factor (vWF), a glycoprotein which functions in blood clotting to provide strong support for the monophyly of both bats and rodents.
ECOLOGY AND TAXONOMY: A NEW APPROACH, USING HETEROHYRAX VS PROCAVIA AS A CASE STUDY
TLDR
A new method for resolving phylogenetic issues involves a synthesis of anatomical and ecological observations and can be used to predict one of three ecological parameters when the other two are known.
Electron microscopic study of the chorioallantoic placenta of the rock hyrax (Heterohyrax brucei).
The interhaemal membrane consisted of only two cellular elements: a single layer of cellular trophoblast and the fetal capillary endothelium. The hyrax is therefore one of the few mammals known to
