Resumen

ARANDA, Marcelo; BOTELLO, Francisco  y  LOPEZ-DE BUEN, Lorena. Medium and large mammal diversity and reproductive data in the cloud forest, Biosphere Reserve of Sierra Manantlán, Jalisco-Colima, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2012, vol.83, n.3, pp.778-784. ISSN 2007-8706.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7550/rmb.24850.

The cloud forest (CF) is one of the ecosystems with less surface and the most threatened in Mexico. This paper presents information on the richness, relative abundance, activity and reproductive data of medium and large mammals in the CF located in the Sierra de Manantlán Biosphere Reserve. Between February 2008 and August 2009, we used camera-traps with which we obtained 372 independent records, corresponding to 17 species. We believe this data supports an appropriate choice of method and monitoring sites; but also data on richness, abundance and reproduction of the species indicate that the ecosystem is properly preserved in the area, which is consistent with recently reported Conabio. Therefore we recommend establishing monitoring activities in the medium and long term in multiple sites, which could complement the assessment that has been undertaken at national level in this ecosystem.

Palabras llave : richness; relative abundance; activity; reproduction; monitoring; camera traps.
