RAMIREZ, Héctor E and PEREZ, Weimar A. MAMMALS FROM AN OAK FOREST FRAGMENT IN THE CAUCA DEPARTMENT, COLOMBIA. Bol. Cient. Mus. Hist. Nat. Univ. Caldas [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.1, pp. 65-79. ISSN 0123-3068.
Twenty four mammals species belonging to 4 orders, 7 families, and 19 genera, are reported for an oak (Quercus humboldtii) forest patch in the vereda La Viuda, Cajibío, Cauca department. Bats and rodents were the orders with the biggest number of species. Several registration techniques were used as mist nets, Sherman and Tomahawk traps, observations and signs. We reported an endemic rodent of Colombia; a threatened species and the increase of the altitudinal range in Colombia for Phyllostomus discolor.
