Abstract This report describes the results of nonvolant mammal inventory fieldwork at Paracou, a lowland rainforest locality in northern French Guiana, and concludes the faunal analysis introduced by our previous monograph on the bats of Paracou (Simmons and Voss, 1998). Working within a 3–km radius over the course of 202 sampling dates from 1991 to 1994, we recorded a total of 64 nonvolant species by conventional trapping, arboreal platform trapping, pitfall trapping, diurnal and nocturnal… 

Small mammals of the mid-Araguaia River in central Brazil, with the description of a new species of climbing rat

TLDR
A new species of Rhipidomys is described previously assigned to R. nitela, which is apparently endemic to the AraguaiaTocantins basin in the Cerrado.

Murciélagos (Chiroptera: Mammalia) del Parque Nacional Yurubí, Venezuela: listado taxonómico y estudio comunitario

TLDR
The results allow us to indicate these forest ecosystems of La Cordillera de la Costa have an appropriate conservation status, taking into account the presence of a relatively high proportion of species from the subfamily Phyllostominae, as well as the pres- ence of other species with conservation priorities.

Records of the Cave-Dwelling Bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera) of Hispaniola with an Examination of Seasonal Variation in Diversity

Despite a long history of scientific collection of bats, Hispaniola remains the least studied island of the Greater Antilles. Using standardized trapping methods during the wet and dry season at four

Additions to the Paraguayan mammal fauna: the first records of two marsupials (Didelphimorphia, Didelphidae) with comments on the alpha taxonomy of Cryptonanus and Philander

TLDR
Two new species of marsupials are added to the fauna of Paraguay, Philander opossum and Cryptonanus unduaviensis, which improve the understanding of both species in South America.

Revisionary Notes on Neotropical Porcupines (Rodentia: Erethizontidae) 3. An Annotated Checklist of the Species of Coendou Lacépède, 1799

TLDR
The erethizontid rodent genus Coendou (including Echinoprocta and Sphiggurus) contains 13 valid species that live in tropical and subtropical forests from Mexico to Uruguay, and information about the type material of all Recent nominal taxa referred to the genus is tabulated.

inventory Small mammals ( Chiroptera , Didelphimorphia , and Rodentia ) from Jaı́ba , middle Rio São Francisco , northern Minas Gerais State , Brazil

TLDR
All bats highlighted here as endemic or representing new records were associated to limestone outcrops, suggesting that preservation of this kind of habitat may be particularly relevant to the conservation of these mammals.

Small mammals of the Estação Ecológica de Bananal, southeastern Atlantic Forest, Brazil, with description of a new species of Brucepattersonius (Rodentia, Sigmodontinae)

TLDR
An annotated list of nonvolant small mammals occurring at Estação Ecológica de Bananal is provided, with comprehensive analyses of morphological variation and detailed diagnoses that will allow their proper identification, and will provide a sound basis for a better comprehension of the geographic variation of these taxa across the biome.

Rapid assessment of nonvolant mammals in seven sites in the northern State of Pará, Brazil: a forgotten part of the Guiana Region

Abstract The Guiana Center of Endemism (GCE) extends across Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, north of the Amazon River and east of the Negro River in Brazil, and Venezuela to the south of the Orinoco

Small mammals (Chiroptera, Didelphimorphia, and Rodentia) from Jaíba, middle Rio São Francisco, northern Minas Gerais State, Brazil

TLDR
All bats highlighted here as endemic or representing new records were associated to limestone outcrops, suggesting that preservation of this kind of habitat may be particularly relevant to the conservation of these mammals.

Mammalian Diversity and Matses Ethnomammalogy in Amazonian Peru Part 2: Xenarthra, Carnivora, Perissodactyla, Artiodactyla, and Sirenia

TLDR
The principal contribution of this report consists in the natural history information compiled from the authors' Matses informants and the resulting overview of local community structure as defined by diurnal activity, locomotion, social behavior, and trophic relationships.

Molecular discrimination of two sympatric species of opossum (genus Didelphis: Didelphidae) in French Guiana

TLDR
The purpose of the field study was to analyse home range and ecological parameters and the polymorphism of external characters raised doubts as to the accurate identification of some animals that were caught in sympatry, so a secure method for differentiating individuals of the two species was needed.

PRIMATES OF GUAYANA SHIELD FORESTS Venezuela and the Guianas

TLDR
The Guayana Shield represents a land mass of 1,800,000 km2 in northern South America suggesting that migration corridors into Shield forests from central or eastern Brazil have been open for thousands of years.

Four New Species Of Spiny Rats Of The Genus Proechimys (Rodentia : Echimyidae) From The Western Amazon Of Brazil

TLDR
The genus Proechimys contains medium high diversity, large geographic to large-bodied rodents known as "spiny range, and local abundance, spiny rats are rats" due to the presence of wide, flattened taxonomically one of the least understood and stiff aristiform hairs on their back.

Taxonomy of squirrel monkeys genus Saimiri (cebidae, platyrrhini): A preliminary report with description of a hitherto unnamed form

TLDR
Two groups of squirrel monkeys, genus Saimiri, are distinguished by external characters, characterized by reduction from seven to six or five paired acrocentric autosomes through pericentric inversion with reciprocal increase in number of paired submetacentric or subtelocentric autosomes.

Distribution of Two Sympatric Species of Sloths (Choloepus didactylus and Bradypus tridactylus) along the Sinnamary River, French Guiana 1

TLDR
The distribution of captures was relatively continuous for both species along the rivers; variations most likely reflected biases due to capture methods.

Definition of species of pouched four-eyed opossums (Didelphidae, philander)

TLDR
The combination of phylogenetic relationships and local sympatry suggests a greater degree of species diversity for the didelphid marsupial genus Philander than the two species P. opossum and P. andersoni.

Uacaries, new world monkeys of the genus Cacajao(Cebidae, Platyrrhini): A preliminary taxonomic review with the description of a new subspecies

TLDR
It is shown that both species could have diverged from a hairy‐headed melanistic ancestral form and both species are distinguished by pelage pattern of head and coloration in general.

Patterns of Diversity of Neotropical Squamate Reptile Species with Emphasis on the Brazilian Amazon and the Conservation Potential of Indigenous Reserves

We present new distibutional data for squamate reptiles (amphisbaenians, lizards, and snakes) from several Neotropical sites and estimate species (alpha) diversity at each site. Species compositions

Phylogeography and systematics of the slender mouse opossum Marmosops (Marsupialia, Didelphidae)

This monograph details molecular (DNA) sequence and morphological variation of slender mouse opossums of the genus "Marmosops", a diverse but biologically poorly known group of insectivorous

The Occurrence of Tonatia schulzi (Chiroptera : Phyllostomidae) in French Guiana with comments on the female genitalia

TLDR
The discovery of T. schulzi in central French Guiana compliments this limited distribution of the genus Tonatia and identifies T. carrikeri in that it does not possess a pure white ventrum ; instead only the basal portion of this underfur is white.
