SANTOS-MORENO, Antonio; GARCIA-GARCIA, José Luís  y  RODRIGUEZ-ALAMILLA, Arisbe. Ecology and reproduction of the bat Centurio senex (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae) in Oaxaca, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2010, vol.81, n.3, pp. 847-852. ISSN 1870-3453.

Wrinke-faced bat Centurio senex is a species with wide geographical distribution, but in those places where it has been recorded, its abundance is typically low, therefore it is considered a rare species and many ecological and reproductive aspects are anecdotic or derived from casual observations. In this study, we report some ecological data, such as sex ratio, age structure, reproductive pattern and its relation with rainfall, patterns of daily activity, as well as secondary sexual variation in weight and length of forearm of a population of C. senex studied for 16 months in a heterogeneous landscape in the Sierra Juárez of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Palabras llave : sex ratio; reproductive pattern; daily activity pattern; secondary sexual variation; Oaxaca; Phyllostomidae.
