Not all gone: the rediscovery of Jaguar (Carnivora: Felidae: Panthera onca) and records of threatened monkeys (Primates: Mammalia) in the Magdalena River Valley of Caldas Department in Colombia, a call for their conservation

Afer 21 years of not having reliable records of Jaguars in the Caldas department, this work renews the hope for conserving this iconic species in the territory and is perhaps the last opportunity to take conservation actions to prevent the total local extinction of Jaguar in the department and C. versicolor.

Environmental Drivers and Distribution Patterns of Carnivoran Assemblages (Mammalia: Carnivora) in the Americas: Past to Present

Ecological niche modeling and macroecological approach in order to assess whether constraints patterns in carnivoran richness and composition structures in replicated assemblages through time and space should reflect environmental filtering through ecological niche constraints from the Last Inter-glacial (LIG), Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) to the present (C) time

El conocimiento de los comportamientos de oso Andino en vida silvestre aún es incipiente o desconocido. Las observaciones aportan al conocimiento de la...

Multi‑criteria spatial identification of carnivore conservation areas under data scarcity and conflict: a jaguar case study in Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia

Knowledge about carnivore species in data-poor countries, such as Colombia, is scarce which has the potential to result in poor landscape planning decisions. We present a multi-criteria spatial identification tool for conservation and management areas, focused on Jaguars (Panthera onca) in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, in northern Colombia

MINERAL-LICK USE BY CHOLOEPUS HOFFMANNI (PILOSA: MEGALONYCHIDAE) AT LAS CRUCES BIOLOGICAL STATION, COTO BRUS, COSTA RICA

Hasta la fecha, solo existe un registro del consumo de minerales en perezosos (i.e., Choloepus didactylus) en Ecuador. Aquí presentamos el primer registro del consumo mineral para C. hoffmanni en una selva tropical en Costa Rica. Este comportamiento se ha asociado principalmente con procesos de desintoxicación en herbívoros, pero no existe evidencia de tales necesidades en perezosos.
