For example, the first axis of a NMS ordination described a gradient of sites with greater representation of short-eared dog (Atelocynus microtis) and red brocket deer
to those with greater representation of giant armadillo, jaguar, and ocelot.
To identify the suspected disease agent (members of the species Bluetongue virus or Epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus), we performed virus isolation and reverse transcription PCR on tissues (heart, liver, lung, and bowel) from the pygmy brocket deer
. (Virus isolation was not carried out on specimens from the gray brocket deer
because brain tissue samples were inadequate and results of PCR were negative for epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus [EHDV] or bluetongue virus [BTV].) Infection with EHDV and BTV was first diagnosed by virus isolation.
(Cabassous tatouay) Brocket deer
(Mazama sp.) 1.5 Apr.
fruit consumption by the brown brocket deer
, Mazama gouazoubira, represents a very significant part of its diet in the area under study (a secondary environment of the Phitogeografical Province of Las Yungas).
Agouti, collared peccary, and brocket deer
died at rates 5-8 times above background levels on BCI (Table 3).
The brown brocket deer
is a poorly known species inhabiting shrubby savannas and forests in South America.
In Barro Colorado Island, Panama (BCI), ocelots were much more frequently recorded at camera trap stations located on trails than at those located in random locations, while collared peccaries and brocket deer
showed the opposite pattern (Kays et al., 2011).
We analyzed 632 skulls of six different species of mammals, including: Mazama nemorivaga (brown brocket deer
) (n = 14), M.
is a small, little-known deer that ranges widely from southern Mexico southward through the Amazon Basin.
The first report of the small red brocket deer
Mazama bororo, one of the most recently documented cervid species, was identified after conducting a karyotypic characterization of Brazilian animals from the Mazama genus (Duarte, 1992).
The high Andes hold northern huemul (a high-altitude deer) and spectacled bear, and the Amazon region holds jaguar, brocket deer
, tapir, and more.
The genus is Mazama, and although subspecies are in some dispute, there are possibly as many as 10 distinct species of brocket deer
. Two, the red brocket (Mazama americana) and the Yucatan gray-brown brocket (Mazama pandora) are found in southern Mexico.
