Introduction: The last 500 years of the historical era, an interval that corresponds to the concerted dispersal of European explorers, traders, and colonists around the globe, has witnessed the global disappearance of ~90 mammal species. Besides the known cases of biological extinctions, this time period was also characterized by the regional extirpations of specialized taxa and by the expansion and population growth of some opportunistic species. Several lines of evidence suggest that the… Expand

Regional Extinctions and Quaternary Shifts in the Geographic Range of Lestodelphys halli, the Southernmost Living Marsupial: Clues for Its Conservation
The models obtained suggest that the Patagonian opossum has been experiencing a reduction in its geographic range since the middle Holocene, a process that is in accordance with a general increase in moisture and temperature in Central Argentina. Expand
New palaeoecological approaches to interpret climatic fluctuations in Holocenic sites of the Pampean Region of Argentina
Abstract The apparently regular and favourable climate that characterizes the Holocene as an interglacial period shows, however, important climatic instability well documented in the NorthernExpand
Noteworthy sigmodontine (Rodentia: Cricetidae) diversity in southern Brazil as an indication of environmental change during the Holocene
ABSTRACT We describe a new sigmodontine fossil sequence ranging from 8,800 ± 40 to 3,730 ± 60 years BP retrieved from the archaeological site RS-S-327:Sangão (Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil). The studiedExpand
Aportes de la genética de la conservación al estudio de los mamíferos neotropicales: revisión y análisis crítico
Although all living beings modify their environment, our species has acquired the ability to do so on a superlative space-time scale. As a result of industrialization and the use of new technologies,Expand
Post-extinction discovery of a population of the highly endemic colonial tuco-tuco (Ctenomys sociabilis)
Comparisons of a species' modern and historic geographic distributions can yield important insights into patterns of biodiversity, including faunal responses to environmental change. UsingExpand
An Ecomorphological Comparative Study of Extant and Late Holocene Sigmodontinae (Rodentia, Cricetidae) Assemblages from Central-Eastern Argentina
The anthropic effect associated with worldwide European settlements over the last 500 years has caused dramatic environmental changes, modified regional patterns of biodiversity, and often led toExpand
How integrative taxonomy can save a species from extinction: The supposedly extinct mouse opossum Cryptonanus ignitus (Diaz, Flores and Barquez, 2000) is a synonym of the living C. chacoensis (Tate, 1931)
It is confirmed that C. ignitus is an elderly example of the living species C. chacoensis and the need to carefully evaluate the taxonomic status of other species supposed to have become extinct in recent times in mainland South America is suggested. Expand
Local extinctions in the small mammal’s assemblages between late Holocene and historical times in Talagapa mountains (Patagonia, Argentina): The role of land use changes
Abstract The aim of this work was to evaluate possible changes in the small mammal composition in the Patagonian arid Extra-Andean steppes between the late Holocene and historical times. A boneExpand

The Broken Zig-Zag: Late Cenozoic large mammal and tortoise extinction in South America
The idea that human overhunting was the main cause of the extinction in South America is agreed, but according to this interpretation, the slaughtering of mammals was accomplished in a particular climatic, ecological and biogeographical frame. Expand
Historically, conservation of mammals has concentrated on protection from hunting and trade, reservation of land as national parks and nature reserves, and faunal surveys to map distribution and abundance, but these approaches have been necessary but insufficient to either stabilize the decline of endangered mammals or to promote their recovery.

Mice and the Postglacial History of the Traful Valley of Argentina
