About this book

Language: Portuguese

In Brazil, there are 12 orders of mammals represented by approximately 650 species. These are distributed in the orders Didelphimorphia (possums), Cingulata (armadillos), Pilosa (anteaters and sloths), Primates (macaques, monkeys and marmosets), Rodentia (rats, guinea pigs, agoutis and capybara), Lagomorpha (hares), Chiroptera (bats), Carnivora (cats, jaguars, wolves, otters, otters and pinnipeds), Perissodactyla (tapirs), Artioodactyla (pigs and deer), Cetacea (whales and dolphins) and Sirenia (manatees). Of these species, about 70 are threatened with extinction, the majority belonging to the orders Primates, Rodentia and Carnivora. Considering the intimate relationship that wild mammals have with Brazilian ecosystems, this number is certainly related to the great reduction, fragmentation and other anthropic impacts these areas are experiencing. This book represents a great advance for amateurs and professionals who care about and who want to know the exotic world of Brazilian wild mammals.

Summary in Portuguese:
No Brasil, são encontradas 12 ordens de mamíferos representadas por aproximadamente 650 espécies. Estas estão distribuídas nas Ordens Didelphimorphia (cuícas, catitas e gambás), Cingulata (tatus), Pilosa (tamanduás e preguiças), Primates (macacos, micos e saguis), Rodentia (ratos, preás, cutias e capivara), Lagomorpha (tapiti e lebre), Chiroptera (morcegos), Carnivora (gatos, onças, lobos, lontra, quati e pinípedes), Perissodactyla (anta), Artyodactila (porcos e veados), Cetacea (baleias e golfinhos) e Sirenia (peixes-boi). Destas espécies, cerca de 70 estão ameaçadas de extinção, sendo a maior parte pertencente às ordens Primates, Rodentia e Carnivora. Considerando a íntima relação que os mamíferos silvestres apresentam com os ecossistemas brasileiros, esse número certamente está relacionado à grande redução, fragmentação e a outros impactos antrópicos nessas áreas. Este livro representa um grande avanço para amadores e profissionais que se preocupam e que queiram conhecer o exótico mundo dos mamíferos selvagens brasileiros.
