Feeding ecology of the maned wolf, Chrysocyon brachyurus (Illiger, 1815) (Mammalia: Canidae), in the Ecological Station of Itirapina, São Paulo state, Brazil

Abstract: -The feeding ecology of the maned wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) was studied from 1998 to 2002 in the Ecological Station of Itirapina, São Paulo State, southeastern Brazil, including estimates of prey number and biomass consumption. A total of 325 faecal samples was collected in the area. The species is omnivorous, with a broad diet including 68 species or morphospecies of fruits and animals. Armadillos (Dasypodidae), wolf's fruit (Solanum lycocarpum) and small mammals (mostly Clyomys bishopi) were the bulk of t… Show more

“…In many studies the wolf's fruit was most commonly consumed item (Dietz 1984, Motta-Junior et al 1996, Juarez and Marinho-Filho 2002, Rodrigues 2002, Santos et al 2003, whereas miscellaneous fruits were more important in others (Motta-Junior 2000, Aragona and Setz, 2001, Bueno and Motta-Junior 2004, Jácomo et al 2004). On the other hand, Silva and Talamoni (2003) and Bueno et al (2003) found that small mammals were the most frequent component, as occurred in the SCNP. It is important to emphasize that contrary to other studies (Juarez and Marinho-Filho 2002, Motta-Junior and Martins 2002, Jácomo et al 2004) the SCNP is the only place where P. obtusifolia was consumed by wolves more frequently than the wolf's fruit.…”

“…We used the average number of seeds per fruit species to estimate the number of fruits and their biomass consumed by maned wolf according to the proportion of seeds found in the scats (Castro et al 1994, Bueno et al 2003. The frequency of occurrence and the minimum number of individual prey provide information on the relative impact the predator plays on the prey community, whereas the estimation of consumed biomass more accurately indicates the relative importance of each item in the predator's diet (Marti 1987).…”

“…All items found in the diet of the studied population, including the high consumption of the plant Solanum lycocarpum [5,16,[56][57] and of small mammals [9,[12][13][14]58] have been reported by other authors studying the species elsewhere. The same applies to other items consumed less frequently, such as birds [4][5]11,59] and invertebrates [4,8,57].…”
