Abstract: ABSTRACT.We assessed the species composition and abundance of medium and large-sized mammals in an urban forest fragment in the Brazilian Amazon, and recorded the preference of some species for particular phytophysiognomies. We placed nine transects with 20 sand plots each in three phytophysiognomies: open rainforest with a dominance of bamboos (OFB), open rainforest with palm trees (OFP), and dense rainforest (DF). We calculated species abundance as the number of records/plot.day, in a total of 2,700 plots.da… Show more

“…Indirect evidence is very useful when surveying animals such as carnivores that are naturally rare, elusive, found at low densities and difficult to capture repeatedly. So the presence of medium and large mammals were also been precisely indicated using indirect evidences, using sounds, spines, burrows and faecal droppings (Campos et al, 2013;Borges et al, 2014;Dereje et al, 2015). The collected data were tabulated and analyzed with appropriate statistical methods.…”

“…Mammals are diversified both structurally as well as functionally (Yonas and Fikresilasie, 2015). Class Mammalia is composed of 5,487 species and more than 1150 species of mammals are found in Africa (Borges et al, 2014). East Africa is rich in mammalian fauna are the (Zerihun et al, 2012a).…”

“…Studies on the capybaras gastrointestinal tract physiology show that the pH of the cecal region of these animals remains close to neutrality (6.5 to 7) (GonzalezJimenez 1977, Borges et al 2014), very similar values to those found in the ruminal environment and very favorable to the establishment of ophryroscolecid species (Cedrola et al 2016).…”
