Human-modified landscape acts as refuge for mammals in Atlantic Forest

Abstract: Human-modified landscapes (HMLs) are composed by small, isolated and defaunated forest fragments, which are surrounded by agricultural and urban areas. Information on species that thrives in these HMLs is essential to direct conservation strategies in local and regional scales. Since HMLs are dominant in the Atlantic Forest, we aimed to assess the mammalian diversity in a HML in southeastern Brazil and to propose conservation strategies. We collected data of terrestrial (small-, medium- and large-sized) and vo… Show more

“…The roadkilled native species represented ~56% of all medium-and large-sized mammals that are known to occur in the study area (N = 16; Bovo et al 2018). The most frequently roadkilled species -D. novemcinctus, N. nasua, H. hydrochaeris, D. albiventris and C. spinosus -are commonly recorded in HMLs (Dotta & Verdade 2011, Reale et al 2014Magioli et al 2016), and in other road ecology studies (Coelho et al 2008, Cáceres et al 2010, Dornas et al 2012, Huijser et al 2013.…”

“…We focused on the first 4.35 km of the CPM road, because this area still sustains substantial wildlife populations, especially bird species (N = 205; Alexandrino et al 2013) and mammal species (N = 35; Bovo et al 2018). A high biodiversity is still present, despite the intense human impacts on the landscape (i.e., urban, industrial, and agricultural areas).…”
