Composition of Medium and Large Mammals in Forest Reserve in the Cerrado of Brazil Central

Abstract: -Knowledge about fauna location and distribution is very important for animal biology understanding. Conservation Units are relevant to biodiversity when considering factors such as hunting, agricultural expansion and forest fires. The conservation of native vegetation fragments under more suitable management plans, recovery areas and surveys are essential to the mammals preservation. This study aimed to survey the mammals of medium and large size of the Brasilia National Forest Area 1. To carry out this study… Show more

“…Studies carried out in different areas of the Cerrado biome have recorded diversities of medium-sized to large terrestrial mammal ranging from 10 to 39 species (Bocchiglieri et al 2010, Gomes et al 2015, Leite et al 2016, Moreira et al 2008, Schneider, 2000, Silveira et al 2003Trolle et al 2007). Considering the greatest diversity yet reported (n = 39; Schneider 2000), our study detected around 40% of the medium-sized to large terrestrial mammals recorded in the Cerrado of Brazil.…”

“…Rodent richness was certainly under represented, given that it is the second richest mammalian order in the Cerrado (with approximately 78 species), second only to Chiroptera (Carmignotto et al 2012). Both species of rodents in our study are those usually detected in surveys of medium-sized to large terrestrial mammal surveys (Trolle et al 2006, Gomes et al 2015, Leite et al 2016. Under representation of small rodents in our study relates to the lower capture probability of these animals by camera traps because they can pass in front of cameras without triggering them (Tobler et al 2008).…”

“…Studies conducted both in conservation units (CUs) and outside protected areas have recorded high mammal richness in the Cerrado. Depending on the locality, richness has varied between 17 and 27 species in CUs (Oliveira et al 2009b;Leite et al 2016;Cabral et al 2017) and between 15 and 25 species on private property (Cáceres et al 2010;Lessa et al 2012;Estrela et al 2015). Thus, the richness of medium-sized and large mammals recorded in the present study agrees with other studies carried out in areas of Cerrado in Brazil (Rocha and Dalponte 2006).…”

“…Many inventories of large-and medium-sized mammals have been conducted in conservation units (CUs) (Rodrigues et al 2002;Câmara and Oliveira 2012;Leite et al 2016;Cabral et al 2017); however, only 8.34% of the Cerrado is part of the system of protected areas (Françoso et al 2015). Most of the mammal populations are outside of CUs and are more susceptible to anthropic impacts.…”

“…On an ampler, and more directly comparable scale, the mammalian faunas recorded in fragments of Atlantic Forest in other regions of Brazil, such as São Paulo and Minas Gerais, were between 52% and 67% similar to that recorded in the present study (Magioli et al, 2014;Machado et al, 2016;Laurindo et al, 2017;Bovo et al, 2018 The similarities were even greater in comparison with fragments of Cerrado savanna, protected or otherwise, with an average of 83% of species in common (Rodrigues et al, 2002;Bocchiglieri et al, 2010;Campos et al, 2013;Leite et al, 2016;Cabral et al, 2017), reflecting the considerable influence of this biome on the mammalian fauna of the study area. The species richness recorded in the present study is probably also a reflection of the vegetation structure of the fragments surveyed, which are formed predominantly by seasonal semi-deciduous Atlantic Forest in transition with areas of Cerrado savanna (Melo et al 2013).…”
