Mammalia (MAMMALIA )
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: Understanding feeding habits and responses to habitat changes can be a critical step toward the conservation of threatened species. Pressured by hunting, habitat loss, and competition from livestock, the dwarf blue sheep (Pseudois schaeferi) of the Yangtze River gorge in the Eastern Himalaya is an IUCN-listed endangered species with a diminished range and population, and yet little is known of its basic biological requirements. Diet composition was quantified and compared between male and female adults, and juveniles of P. schaeferi on Rini Mountain, Yunnan, China from 10-min scan samples from October 2006 to February 2007. In total, 17 food species were identified though only six species (Opuntia ficus-indica, Themeda triandra, Festuca durata, Polygonum thunbergii, Elsholtzia cypriani, and Excoecaria acerifolia) made up nearly 90% of the diet. Although feeding niches of both adults and juveniles highly overlapped, significant quantitative differences in their food composition were found. Adult male and juvenile diets were the most dissimilar; adult sheep fed more frequently on the introduced succulent cactus, O. ficus-indica, whereas juvenile sheep fed more frequently on the herbs, P. thunbergii and E. cypriani, and the woody shrub, Buddleja caryopteridifolia. Field observations showed that P. schaeferi frequently used its broad curved horns to remove the spines of O. ficus-indica, presumably to gain access to the fleshy leaves. We suggest differences in the diets are the result of differential access to the cactus, but may also be influenced by nutritional requirements.Mammalia 05/2013; 77(2):131-140.

ABSTRACT: he habitat-population density relationship in the white-tailed deer Odocoileus virginianus was analyzed in a tropical dry forest of the Zicuirán-Infiernillo Biosphere Reserve in the Pacific region of Mexico. In 2008, pellet groups were sampled in strip-transects during the dry season to estimate population density in five locations. Habitat variables (physical, vegetation, and human) were obtained during field sampling and through the use of geographic information systems. Principal component analysis and stepwise multiple regression were used to analyze the habitat-density relationships. The mean population density of white-tailed deer for the region was 6.7 ind/km2; however, this varied significantly among sites (1.9–11.3 ind/km2). Higher densities were found in sites with lower human activity, irregular topography, dense understory cover, and well-developed tree strata. In contrast, sites with lower deer density presented high human activities such as livestock and crop production, which act to modify the tropical dry forest. We discuss the management and conservation implications.Mammalia 03/2013;
