Small mammals from Sima de los Huesos.
TLDR
A small collection of rodents from Sima de los Huesos helps to clarify the stratigraphic position of this famous human locality and suggests a Middle Pleistocene age (Saalian) to the Clays where humans have been found. Expand
First fossil soft ticks,Ornithodoros antiquus n. sp. (Acari: Argasidae) in Dominican amber with evidence of their mammalian host
A male and female soft tick,Ornithodoros antiquus n. sp. (Acari: Argasidae) from Dominican Republic amber are described. This represents the first description of a fossil soft tick. The fossils shareExpand
First Record of Amblyomma auricularium (Acari: Ixodidae) in the United States
TLDR
Amblyomma auricularium (Conil) was collected from an armadillo in Glades County, FL, which is the first record of this species in the United States. Expand
First record of the smoky bat Furipterus horrens (F. Cuvier, 1828) (Mammalia: Chiroptera) in the state of Espírito Santo, southeastern Brazil
Furipterus horrens has its distribution restricted to the Neotropics. In the coastal states of Southeastern Brazil covered by Atlantic Forest, few records are known and the Espirito Santo state hasExpand
Summary of phylogeny in subfamily Colobinae (Primate: Cercopithecidae)
TLDR
This review is expected to guide the future research of Colobinae phylogeny, and also provide theoretic evidence for the conservation of these highly endangered and unique primates. Expand

Vulpes Ferrilata (Carnivora: Canidae)
Abstract The canid Vulpes ferrilata Hodgson, 1842, is commonly called the Tibetan sand fox, or sand fox. It is widely distributed in the steppes and semideserts of the Tibetan Plateau north throughExpand
Occurrence of the Sunda colugo ( Galeopterus variegatus ) in the tropical forests of Singapore: A Bayesian approach
TLDR
This work investigates environmental variables that account for the occurrence of G. variegatus in Singapore using Bayesian inference and shows that G.variegatus was only detected in transects with over 95% canopy cover, which was ultimately the most important predictor of colugo occurrence. Expand
Fathoming tropical biodiversity: the continuing discovery of Neotropical mammals
TLDR
By analysing nomenclature for Neotropical mammals, two well-defined biases are documented that are associated with species accumulation: definite trends in body size are evident, so that larger organisms were more quickly apparent to systematists. Expand
