  author={Mar{\'i}a Estela Viscarra and Guido Marcos Ayala and Herminio Ticona and Robert Benedict Wallace},
The natural history and ecology of mammals in the High Andes and Andean cloud forests are poorly known.  This work aims to analyze the relative abundance and activity patterns of medium and large-sized mammals in the Andean portions of the Greater Madidi-Tambopata landscape using the camera trap methodology.  Between 2012 to 2017, twelve sites were sampled covering an altitudinal gradient from 1,057 to 4,902 masl.  A total of 311 digital camera trap stations were installed, and we applied a…

Activity patterns and habitat use of mammals in an Andean forest and a Eucalyptus reforestation in Colombia

The creation of a new habitat, such as the reforestation, might influence the interactions among some species and apparently, could reduce interspecific competition and thus contribute to their co-existence at the study zone though niche differentiation in time and space.

Density and activity patterns of Andean cat and pampas cat (Leopardus jacobita and L. colocolo) in the Bolivian Altiplano

Abstract Context Understanding the factors that determine the distribution and abundance of species is an important aim of ecology and prerequisite for conservation. The Andean cat (Leopardus

Activity Pattern Segregation of Carnivores in the High Andes

The dissimilar activity patterns of Andean and Pampas cats support the hypothesis of temporal niche segregation of these felids.

Camera trap survey of medium and large mammals in a montane rainforest of northern Peru

Camera traps are a powerful tool for inventorying elusive and rare species and very useful to obtain ecological data for plans that involve wildlife conservation. In Peru, several surveys have been

Activity patterns of jaguar and puma and their main prey in the Greater Madidi-Tambopata Landscape (Bolivia, Peru)

Abstract Activity pattern studies can help explain the coexistence of competing species. Between 2001 and 2017 we evaluated the activity pattern overlap of jaguar (Panthera onca), puma (Puma

Assessing tiger–prey interactions in Sumatran rainforests

This study quantifies temporal overlap between the Sumatran tiger and five of its presumed prey species from four study areas comprising disturbed lowland to primary submontane forest and provides the first insights into Sumatan tiger–prey temporal interactions.

The use of camera‐trap data to model habitat use by antelope species in the Udzungwa Mountain forests, Tanzania

Results of this study illustrate the potential of camera-trapping for modelling habitat requirements and providing guidelines for the conservation management of threatened antelope populations in forest habitats.
