A note on the diet and foraging behavior of Artibeus lituratus (Chiroptera, Phyllostomidae) in an urban park in southeastern Brazil

Abstract: Oprea, M., Brito, D., Vieira, T.B., Mendes, P., Lopes, S.R., Fonseca, R.M., Coutinho, R.Z., Ditchfield, A.D. A note on the diet and foraging behavior of Artibeus lituratus (Chiroptera, Phyllostomidae) in an urban park in southeastern Brazil. Biota Neotrop.

“…For example, a total of 14 species were recorded for Paulo Cesar Vinha State Park (Oprea 2006); Fonte Grande State Park has 17 species (Ditchfield, unpublished data). The numbers of bat species recorded for protected areas in Espírito Santo are higher than the richness observed within Vitória's urban limits, and diversity is also greater in protected areas (Oprea et al 2007). Our results are in accordance with previous studies on bat communities in urban environments that show typically lower species richness and abundance in urban habitats than those in less disturbed habitats (Geggie and Fenton 1985;Walsh et al 1995;Walsh and Harris 1996;Vaughan et al 1997;Gaisler et al 1998;Á vila-Flores and Fenton 2005).…”

“…It has eight municipal parks, where forest remnants can provide refuge to wildlife, including bats. We chose three to be sampled in this study: (1) Pedra da Cebola Municipal Park (20°16 0 39 00 S, 40°17 0 45 00 W), with an area of 100,005 m 2 was originally a transition zone between the restinga (coastal shrubland) ecosystem and the Atlantic Forest (Oprea et al 2007); (2) Horto de Maruípe Municipal Park (20°17 0 44 00 S, 40°18 0 47 00 W), with an area of 60,000 m 2 covered by native Atlantic Forest vegetation and many introduced exotic species; and (3) Fazendinha Municipal Park (20°14 0 30 00 S, 40°16 0 23 00 W) with 22,853.78 m 2 , also a transition zone between the restinga (coastal shrubland) ecosystem and the Atlantic Forest, with some exotic species (Fig. 1).…”

“…In other region with the same vegetation, two activity peaks were recorded for the species, one of them between the first and second hours after the nightfall and the other at forth hour (Oprea et al, 2007). In areas of stational semidecidual forest, capture peaks for this species were registered at forth hour after the nightfall (Marinho Filho and Sazima, 1989), between the second and third hours for A. lituratus and A. fimbriatus (Aguiar and Marinho Filho, 2004), and during the first and forth hours for the same two species, with a subtle increase in the third hour for A. fimbriatus (Ortêncio Filho and Reis, 2008).…”

“…Los resultados presentados soportan que el SSP contribuye a una mayor diversidad vegetal y mayor oferta de recursos en los fragmentos de bosque asociados, registrando mayor número de plantas con frutos involucradas en la dieta de murciélagos frugívoros tales como Carica papaya, Cecropia sp., Guazuma ulmifolia, Spondias mombin, entre otras; que a su vez presenta una relación positiva con la presencia de murciélagos de mayor tamaño, como es el caso de A. lituratus considerada como una especie consumidora de frutos grandes (Fleming 1986, Oprea et al 2007, Ríos-Blanco & Pérez-Torres 2015, Suarez & Montenegro 2015.…”
