About this book

Language: Portuguese

The Atlantic Forest, a terrestrial biome along the Atlantic coast of Brazil, is one of the most threatened biomes and one of the most vulnerable areas of the planet, yet it still is home to a wealth of biodiversity that it typical of Brazil. It is home to 83 species of terrestrial mammals of medium and large size distributed among the Didelphimorphia (opossums), Cingulata (armadillos), Pilosa (anteaters and antelope), Primates (macaques, monkeys and marmosets), Rodentia (hedgehogs, pacas and capybaras), Lagomorpha (rabbits and hares), Carnivora (cats, jaguars, wolves, otters and coatis), Perissodactyla (tapirs) and Artiodactyla (pigs and deer). The only way to protect the mammals of the Atlantic Forest and what remains of their habitat is through education and knowledge, creating awareness that nature is a part of us and we can not live without it. Only in this way can we hope to live with beings that preceded us and who today constitute an immense genetic patrimony of humanity, In this book the authors describe particularities of each species, such as general characteristics; geographic distribution; reproductive, trophic and ecological data; as well as illustrations of footprints, that aim to facilitate the identification of the species in the field.

Summary in Portuguese:
A Mata Atlântica é um dos biomas mais ameaçados e uma das áreas mais vulneráveis do Planeta, porém, ainda assim, mostrase como uma referência brasileira de biodiversidade e riqueza. Nela são encontradas 83 espécies de mamíferos terrestres de médio e grande porte, distribuídas entre as Ordens Didelphimorphia (cuícas e gambás), Cingulata (tatus), Pilosa (tamanduás e preguiças), Primates (macacos, micos e saguis), Rodentia (ouriços, coandus, pacas e capivaras), Lagomorpha (tapitis e lebres), Carnivora (gatos, onças, lobos, lontras e quatis), Perissodactyla (antas) e Artiodactyla (porcos e veados). A única maneira de proteger os mamíferos da Mata Atlântica e proteger o que resta de seu hábitat, para que possamos conviver com seres que nos antecederam e que hoje constituem esse imenso patrimônio genético da humanidade, é através da educação e conhecimento, criando a consciência de que a natureza faz parte de nós e não podemos viver sem ela. Portanto, neste livro descrevemos particularidades de cada espécie, como: características gerais; distribuição geográfica; dados reprodutivos, tróficos e ecológicos; assim como ilustrações de pegadas, que visam facilitar a identificação das espécies em campo.
