females aged from 12 to 24 months were used; three females were subjected to ovariectomy in the follicular phase and the other three in the luteal phase.
These items comprised approximately 15% of the volume; the remaining volume was composed of collared peccary
255 The collared peccary
(Tayassu tajacu) is another species in danger of extinction that finds refuge in the Manantlan Biosphere Reserve.
This increase was highly significant for collared peccary
and brocket deer (Table 3).
Among mammal species are tapir, collared peccary
, and howler, spider, squirrel, and white-faced monkeys.
Primarily a creature of deserts and dry thornbush, the collared peccary
ranges from Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona down through Mexico all the way to northern Argentina.
Four species (gray-winged trumpeter Psophia crepitans, collared peccary
Pecari tajacu, white-lipped peccary, red brocket deer Mazama americana) were recorded at 17 to 19 cameras (Table 1), indicating that they were widely distributed both on and off trails.
foetidissima by collared peccary
(Pecari tajacu), speculate on their potential to disperse seeds, and question previous assumptions regarding the role extinct megafauna played in this mutualism.
Two species of peccaries (family Tayassuidae) can be found in the Atlantic rainforest of Brazil: the whitelipped peccary (Tayassu pecari, Link 1795) and the collared peccary
(Pecari tajacu, Linnaeus 1758).
Six species, including the collared peccary
, were found exclusively in the continuous forest.
, is native to North America and an automatic in our egalitarian program.
The normal hematology and serum chemistry of the collared peccary
In addition to the Chacoan peccary, there is the white-lipped peccary, which lives mostly in dense rain forests from southern Mexico to northern Argentina, and the collared peccary
, or javelina, which ranges from northern Argentina and Uruguay to the U.
Hall (1981) mapped northern Texas as within the range of the javelina or collared peccary
, Tayassu tajacu, on the basis of a supposed record from Montague County, which we have been unable to verify and that was not recognized by Sowls (1984).
The most familiar is the collared peccary
or javelina, Tayassu tajacu, common in Texas and ranging southward well into Argentina.
