Bezerra, A.M.R., da Silva Jr, N.J. & Marinho-Filho, J. The amazon bamboo rat Dactylomys dactylinus (Rodentia: Echimyidae: Dactylomyinae) in the cerrado of central Brazil. Biota Neotrop. Jan/Apr 2007 vol. 7, no. 1 ISSN 1676-0603. Until recently, the distribution of Dactylomys dactylinus was considered to be restricted to forest habitats from the western Amazon to the east of the Xingu River in Brazil…

Seasonally flooded stepping stones: emerging diversity of small mammal assemblage in the Amazonia-Cerrado ecotone, central Brazil
The results reinforce the idea that the habitat mosaic found in the Araguaia alluvial plain has an important role in promoting the high biodiversity of this area and that natural forest fragments may act as a refuge and food resource for several species.
Rediscovery and range extension of the black-shouldered opossum Caluromysiops irrupta Sanborn, 1951 (Didelphimorphia, Didelphidae) in Brazil
A new record is provided for Mato Grosso state, Brazil, based on a specimen captured during a faunal rescue of vegetation suppression, which represents the easternmost limit of the distribution of the black-shouldered opossum and the second known specimen from Brazil.
Pneumonia due to Talaromyces marneffei in a Dog from Southern Brazil with Concomitant Canine Distemper Virus Infection.
The pathological and molecular findings associated with Talaromyces marneffei-induced pneumonia with concomitant infection by canine distemper virus (CDV) are described in a dog and represent the first description of pulmonary penicilliosis in the dog and extend the geographical niche of this emerging infectious pathogen.


First record of Thyroptera discifera (Chiroptera: Thyropteridae) in the Cerrado of Central Brazil
only one genus, Thyroptera Spix, 1823, and three extant species: T. tricolor Spix, 1823, T. discifera (Lichtenstein and Peters, 1854), and T. lavali Pine, 1993. The disk-winged bats inhabit the
The Brazilian Caatinga in South American zoogeography : tropical mammals in a dry region
Although the Caatinga contains a xeric-adapted flora, it harbours an anomalous mammal fauna that is more characteristic of a mesic tropical biome in terms of both species composition and overall adaptation.
The role of gallery forests in the zoogeography of the cerrado's non-volant mammalian fauna
The cerrado, one of the largest vegetation formations in Brazil, has been poorly studied and its zoogeographic affinities are analyzed to present the first comprehensive list of the non-volant mammalian fauna and analyze its Zoogeographic Affinities.
It is shown that, while there are few examples of taxa for which the Rio Juruá is apparently a barrier, most taxa either are largely undifferentiated throughout the basin or are sharply divided into reciprocally monophyletic mtDNA haplotype clades separable into upriver and downriver units.
The historical bridge between the Amazon and the Atlantic Forest of Brazil: a study of molecular phylogeography with small mammals
Aim To examine how the genetic diversity of selected taxa of forest-dwelling small mammals is distributed between and within the major rain forest domains of Amazonia and Atlantic Forest and the
