Abstract

CASTANEDA, Román D; VIANA, Carlos E  and  BUITRAGO, Luis A. CHARACTERIZATION OF LEPORIDAE (MAMMALIA: LEPORIDAE) IN THE TROPICAL DRY FOREST OF DEPARTMENT TOLIMA (COLOMBIA). Bol. Cient. Mus. Hist. Nat. Univ. Caldas [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.1, pp.117-124. ISSN 0123-3068.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17151/bccm.2015.19.1.8.

A number of leporids in the tropical dry forest of Tolima (Colombia) have not been characterized, to this purpose, 22 leporids were captured and 13 of which were selected for morphometric and cytogenetic studies. Blood samples were taken to determine the chromosome numbers and cranial morphometric parameters and body measurements were carried out. All experimental samples had a chromosome number 2n = 38. This data together with morphometric measurements allowed to establish that these leporids belong to the genus and specie Sylvilagus brasiliensis which appear to be adapted to the particular environmental conditions of the region.

Keywords : cranial measurements; body measurements; chromosome number; Sylvilagus.
