Pocock, Pocock R. This can be related at least broadly to the species being affected by glacial cycles that occurred in Patagonia during the Late Quaternary, spreading during these periods to eastern areas, and retracting during interglacial periods to western portions of South America.
African clawless otter A. In lyncodob context of the distribution of L.
The animal has not been thoroughly studied in the wild, and knowledge of its behavioral patterns is unsure. It reportedly has been kept as a working pet by local ranchers to destroy rodents. Abstract The Patagonian weasel Lyncodon patagonicus is one of the least known carnivores from South America, and excluding some contributions, knowledge of it seems anecdotal. Because the dietary habits of this animal are not known, it is difficult to speculate on the role it plays within its ecosystem.

The ADW Team gratefully acknowledges lycnodon support. Latitudinal patterns of species richness distribution in South American carnivores. Ecoregions follow Olson et al.
Positive Impacts controls pest population Economic Importance for Humans: Galidia Ring-tailed mongoose G. From LGM to the present, we observed a major retraction in potential distribution areas that might indicate the existence of a vicariance process affecting Patagonian weasel distribution.

ADW: Lyncodon patagonicus: INFORMATION
Localities recorded for L. Patagoncus weasel distribution seems to be primarily related to cold areas with marked temperature seasonality and elevations below 2, m above sea level. Chilean localities denoted by asterisks: It is important to point out that areas with high probability of presence in southern Argentina seem restricted to this biome i. Hose’s palm civet D.
California sea lion Z. August 28, ; Accepted: Habitat Regions temperate Physical Description The head and body length of Lyncodon patagonicus ranges from to mm, with the tail adding an additional 60 to 90 mm Nowak, The reproductive behavior of this species has not been characterized.
The novel lymcodon implemented in this work allow us to infer that L. However, the absence from this ecosystem might be due to a lack of shrubby steppes and the predominant sagebrush jarillal dominated by Larrea spp. Roig, Roig V. Parental care in L.

Behavior Patagonian weasels have been noted to enter burrows of Ctenomys and Microcavia in pursuit of prey. In this way, cold areas with marked temperature seasonality, spring precipitations, and altitudes below patavonicus, m above sea level asl appear to be the best suited for the distribution of L.

It is supposed to inhabit herbaceous and arid environments luncodon Argentina and Chile. Circuito exterior, Ciudad Universitaria, Del. Mammal Species of the World: In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies. These are coincident with the supposed distribution of the 2 subspecies that have been recognized for L.

Atilax Marsh mongoose A. Animals with bilateral symmetry have dorsal and ventral sides, as well as anterior and posterior ends. We used 2 sets of environmental variables: Within this wide distribution, most of its records of occurrence in the Pampas, Espinal, and Low Monte ecoregions of central Argentina correspond to historical or fossil records Prevosti et al.
Potential distribution models are presented in Fig. Cystophora Hooded seal C. In this context, the area in which L. We generated 4 basic models: The head and body length of Lyncodon patagonicus ranges from to mm, with the tail adding an additional 60 to 90 ljncodon Nowak, Ecosystem Roles Because the dietary habits of this animal are not known, it is difficult to speculate on the role it plays within its ecosystem.
Transferability and model evaluation in ecological niche modeling: Model E shows a similar pattern to model C Fig.
