Abstract: We studied the bat fauna of the Pantanal floodplain and its surrounding plateaus in Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, based on the scientific collection at Universidade Anhanguera -Uniderp and on the Projeto Morcegos do Pantanal data bank at UFMS, comprising 9,037 captures of 56 species recorded from 1994 to 2007. The Pantanal surveys were carried out in the Nhecolândia, Aquidauana, Miranda, and Paraguai sub-regions; the uplands surveys took place in the Maracaju, Bodoquena, and Urucum formations. Bat specimens were… Show more

“…The numerical predominance of individuals and species of phyllostomid bats, as observed in this study, is a common pattern in the Neotropics (Kalko and Handley, 2001;Bernard and Fenton, 2002;Falcão et al, 2003;Zortéa and Alho, 2008;Oprea et al, 2009;Alho et al, 2011). The most abundant species recorded with mist-nets were the fruit-eaters; Artibeus lituratus was the most numerous species at two of the sites, PESRM and EEFechos, while P. lineatus and A. planirostris were the most abundant species in Carste LS.…”

“…It is important to realize that at present, the factors influencing the distribution and species richness of bats are still poorly understood (Alho et al, 2011;Fahr and Kalko, 2011;Mehr et al, 2011). According to recent studies, land use, habitat complexity, and heterogeneity along biome gradients have been identified as important for determining the structure of bat assemblages at both local and regional scales (Mancina et al, 2007;Fahr and Kalko, 2011;Mehr et al, 2011).…”

“…The four nectarivore species registered in Sonora are common users of caves as day roosts, which seems to be especially important for L. dekeyseri and A. geoffroyi (Baumgarten & Vieira 1994, Coelho & MarinhoFilho 2002, Esbérard et al 2005. Insectivorous bats in Sonora are represented by few species when compared to sites in southern Cerrado or in savannas in Bolivia and Paraguay, where insectivorous bats predominate (Cunha et al 2009, Aguirre 2002, Willig et al 2000, Alho et al 2011, Zortéa & Alho 2008. Only one Phyllostominae insectivorous species occurred in Sonora, T. bidens.…”

“…In spite of bats have been increasingly surveyed in Mato Grosso do Sul (e.g. Camargo & Fischer 2004, Bordignon 2006, Longo et al 2007, Camargo et al 2009, Cunha et al 2009, Ferreira et al 2010, Alho et al 2011, there is a large gap of data in the northern Cerrado of this state (Bernard et al 2010). This region urges for biological inventories and conservation initiatives, because natural areas have been rapidly transformed into cattle ranches, monocultures, hydroelectric dams, and sucroalcohol facilities (Bernard et al 2010);(pers.…”

“…(Passos et al 2010), which differs from other regions of Brazil, in which Phyllostomidae represents more than 50% of the total registered species (e.g. Esbérard 2003, Bernard and Fenton 2007, Alho et al 2011, Carvalho et al 2013, Felix et al 2016. The typical temperate climate in the southern region of Brazil can limit the occurrence of tropical bat species, specifically in the southern portion of the Atlantic Forest (Fabián et al 1999), where at least 24 species of Phyllostomidae have their southern limits of distribution (e.g.…”
