Analysis of 400 scats of the maned wolf Chrysocyon brachyurus (Illiger, 1815), collected in Serra da Canastra National Park from November 1998 to January 2000 yielded 1688 occurrences of 69 identified food items, 49.5% of which were represented by plant items and 50.5% by animal items. According...
In an overgrown clearing, which occupied an area of 5 ha within mixed spruce-deciduous forest, 106 and 20 nests of the harvest mouse Micromys minutus (Pallas, 1771) and 81 and 59 nests of the common dormouse Muscardinus avellanarius (Linnaeus, 1758) were recorded in the fourth and fifth years...
