Mammalia (MAMMALIA)

Publisher: Muséum national d'histoire naturelle (France). Laboratoire de zoologie des mammifères; Centre national de la recherche scientifique (France), De Gruyter

Journal description

Mammalia is a quarterly journal devoted to the inventory, analysis and interpretation of mammalian diversity. It publishes original results on all aspects of the systematics (comparative, functional and evolutionary morphology; morphometrics, phylogeny; biogeography; taxonomy and nomenclature) and biology (physiology, behaviour comparative anatomy) of mammals with a strong focus on ecology, including biodiversity, distribution habitats, competition and conservation.

    ABSTRACT: Before 1990, mass wintering of the noctule bat (Nyctalus noctula) in Ukraine was known from the Ukrainian Transcarpathia and the south of the country. For the rest of Ukraine, as for other regions of Europe to the north and the northeast, the species was considered a migratory one. Today, the noctule bat is known in winter for 23 (of 25) administrative provinces of Ukraine, and winter colonies have been recorded in most of them. In Ukraine, N. noctula is a seasonal epilithic species, which hibernates mostly in multi-storey buildings serving as cliff-like structures. The retrospective analysis of bat data from Ukraine and adjacent countries shows that new records refer to the expansion of the species’ winter range, which occurred during the last decades. The border of the winter range of N. noctula in Eastern Europe now lies at least 500–600 km northward than previously assumed. The analysis of the air temperature datasets demonstrates that warming of winters cannot be the only factor determining this process. Mass appearance of high buildings and roosts associated with them is thought to be an important condition driving the expansion.

    ABSTRACT: The margay (Leopardus wiedii) is a small felid currently facing critical population declines in many regions throughout its Central-South American range. This species is thought to be the most arboreal of the New World felids, which has led to concern that it may be especially sensitive to deforestation and habitat destruction. Due to the margay's elusive nature, little is known about its ecology and natural history. In the present study, a camera trap survey was used to investigate whether margay abundance and activity patterns are correlated to vegetational structure in a mid-elevation forest in the eastern Andes of Ecuador. Structural habitat variables were measured at each camera station to assess whether these factors were predictive of margay camera "trap" success. The data show that canopy cover, average distance to nearest trees, and distance to forest edge were significant predictors of margay trap success, although compositional analysis indicated that the highest margay presence was in areas of 51-75% canopy cover rather than the very densest locations. These results highlight the importance of curbing habitat destruction and deforestation as part of efforts to reverse the margay's declining population trend and protect its habitat.
