Lyncodon patagonicus

Annals of the Missouri Botanical Garden. Its fur is whitish with black and dark brown tones mixed in.

Interestingly, the southermost and westernmost record for the species is represented by 1 locality in southern Chile Puerto Prat, locality 8, Fig. The external characters of the Patagonian weasel Lyncodon patagonicus. Nineteen and 17 environmental variables contributed the most to the models with extant records, It is important to point out that areas with high probability of presence in lyncoxon Argentina seem restricted to this biome i. The patagonjcus food habits of Patagonian weasels are little known, but the fact that this species has reduced molars and well-formed carnassials suggests that it is primarily carnivorous Ewer, The new locality fills a large gap in its geographic distribution and represents the third record for La Pampa Province Argentina.


Carnivore Behavior, Ecology, and Evolution, Volume 2. Geographic distribution and historical occurrence of Dromiciops gliroides Thomas Metatheria: En lyncoeon trabajo se registra una nueva localidad de presencia para esta especie basada en un individuo fotografiado en el Parque Nacional Lihue Calel, provincia de La Pampa.

All 4 models showed better predictions than those randomly generated at cumulative values of 1, 5, and 10, with high AUC values: Males have territories that overlap with those of several females and they monitor their reproductive state through chemical cues.

Specimens from Chilean collections were not analyzed and patagonicis their geographical coordinates were used.

However, the absence from this ecosystem might be due to a lack of shrubby steppes and the predominant sagebrush jarillal dominated by Larrea spp. Although 73 localities were listed, we were not able to assign an age patgonicus.


Field studies should provide complementary information to test for niche overlap and other ecological aspects of these poorly studied species. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford.

We observed the same pattern in both actual and fossil variables, indicating that the same variables affect the distribution of L. This is true for high- black shading and medium-prediction areas dark gray shadingand to a lesser extent to the areas with low prediction values light shading Fig. University of Oklahoma Press.
