Millions of animals are killed on roads annually due to collisions with vehicles, particularly medium-large mammals. Studies on mammal road-kill flourished in Brazil in the last decade and an assessment of research on road-kill impacts at a country level will help define science-based conservation strategies. In this study, we used the compiled sci...
