Abstract The use of wildlife corridors to maintain landscape connectivity has become increasingly relevant to the conservation of wide-ranging species, including the jaguar Panthera onca. Jaguars are particularly threatened in Mexico, where corridor linkages are tenuous as a result of habitat fragmentation. Our study assessed a section of potential corridor south of the Sierra Madre Oriental in eastern Mexico. We conducted 245 interviews with local inhabitants in 140 36-km2 sampling units over… Expand
Jaguar Panthera onca in its southernmost range: use of a corridor between Bolivia and Argentina
Corridors can prevent local extinction of particular species by connecting popula- tions and are crucial for the long-term conservation of large animals and species with large home- ranges such asExpand
Habitat use, activity patterns and human interactions with jaguars Panthera onca in southern Belize
Abstract Parts of southern Belize are designated as a corridor for the jaguar Panthera onca but the Maya region remains understudied. We therefore studied jaguar habitat use, activity patterns, andExpand
Validation of the Calakmul–Laguna de Terminos corridor for jaguars Panthera onca in south-eastern Mexico
Abstract The fragmentation of jaguar Panthera onca populations as a result of habitat loss is considered to be one of the main challenges for the conservation of the species. Corridors have beenExpand
Conserving predators across agricultural landscapes in Colombia: habitat use and space partitioning by jaguars, pumas, ocelots and jaguarundis
Abstract Loss and degradation of natural habitats continue to increase across the tropics as a result of agricultural expansion. Consequently, there is an urgent need to understand their effects, andExpand
Assessing the umbrella value of a range-wide conservation network for jaguars (Panthera onca).
TLDR
The results demonstrate that a regional, single-species conservation strategy can serve as an effective umbrella for the larger community and should help conserve viable populations and connectivity for a suite of co-occurring mammals. Expand

Determinants of jaguar occupancy at the northern range edge
Identifying factors promoting jaguar (Panthera onca) occupancy is crucial for planning effective conservation and management actions that can contribute to long-term population viability. We usedExpand
Effects of habitat suitability and minimum patch size thresholds on the assessment of landscape connectivity for jaguars in the Sierra Gorda, Mexico
Abstract Maintaining habitat and its connectivity is a major conservation goal, especially for large carnivores. Assessments of habitat connectivity are typically based on the output of habitatExpand

In 2013, we conducted a baseline study on the presence, distribution and occupancy of medium- to large-sized mammals in Bolivia along the San Buenaventura-Ixiamas road that runs parallel to theExpand
Landscapes attributes and their consequences on jaguar Panthera onca and cattle depredation occurrence
Human activities affect large carnivores worldwide by increasing mortality due to destruction and fragmentation of habitats, decrease of prey availability, and hunting pressure. The jaguar (PantheraExpand

Habitat use of wild ungulates in fragmented landscapes of the Lacandon Forest, Southern Mexico
TLDR
It is found that Baird's tapir and the white-lipped peccary are actually rainforest specialists avoiding disturbed habitats in the Lacandon Forest, while the red brocket deer, the collared peccaries, and thewhite-tailed deer show different degrees of success in using habitat mosaic derived from human activities.

Phylogeography, population history and conservation genetics of jaguars (Panthera onca, Mammalia, Felidae)
TLDR
The genetic diversity, population structure and demographic history of jaguars across their geographical range are investigated by analysing 715 base pairs of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region and 29 microsatellite loci in ≈40 individuals sampled from Mexico to southern Brazil. Expand
Jaguar spacing, activity and habitat use in a seasonally flooded environment in Brazil
TLDR
With their larger body size, jaguars in the Pantanal may require more food than jaguar in other areas of the species' range, and this, in addition to differences in prey availability and the annual availability of dry land, appear to influence the difference in home range size betweenJaguar populations.
