      Abstract: Resumen

      La marta Martes martes es un Mustélido de mediano tamaño que habita en bosques bien conservados del norte peninsular. Actualmente, la distribución y ecología de esta especie en la Península Ibérica es poco conocida. En este trabajo se muestrearon 27 cuadrículas UTM de 10x10km de la provincia de Ourense (Galicia) mediante técnicas de fototrampeo, con el objetivo de aumentar el conocimiento sobre la distribución de la especie en esta Comunidad Autónoma. Se confirmó la presencia de la marta en 18 de las cuadrículas muestreadas, lo que incrementa en un 21% el área de distribución conocida para la especie en Galicia y un 62% en la provincia de Ourense, confirmando el muestreo específico mediante fototrampeo como un método de gran eficacia a la hora de conocer la distribución de especies esquivas como la marta.

      Palabras clave: Carnívoros, detección, metodología, Mustélidos, Península Ibérica.

      Pine marten Martes martes is a medium size mustelid that inhabits well-conserved forests of the northern Iberian Peninsula. Currently, the distribution and ecology of the species in the Iberian Peninsula is poorly known. In this work, 27 UTM 10x10km grids in the province of Ourense were sampled using camera-trapping techniques, with the aim of increasing knowledge about the distribution of the species in Galicia. The presence of pine marten was confirmed in 18 of the surveyed grids, which increases the species ́ known distribution area by 21% in this community and by 62% in Ourense province, confirming camera-trapping specific survey as a highly effective method to know the distribution of elusive species such as the pine marten.

      In this study we describe the finding of a Cephenemyia stimulator larva in the brain of a roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) after performing a computed tomography (CT) scan of its head. Despite this anatomical location of oestrid larvae could be relatively frequent in other genera, such as Oestrus, to our knowledge, this is the first reported case involving the genus Cephenemyia. Concretely, a second-instar C. stimulator larva was found in the basis of the cranium. The location of a macroscopic hemorrhagic lesion involving the brain parenchyma peripheral to the location of the larva suggests that tissue colonization occurred before the animal was hunted. Since no detectable alterations or damage to the cranial bones were observed, we suggest a possible larval migration route drilling the skull bones. Finally, we propose the use of the term “neuromyiasis” to be referred to the invasion of the central nervous system by dipteran larvae, particularly oestrids.

      Keywords: Cephenemyia stimulator, cerebral myiasis, computed tomography, neuromyiasis, roe deer


      En este estudio describimos el hallazgo de una larva de Cephenemyia stimulator en el cerebro de un corzo (Capreolus capreolus) tras realizar una tomografía computerizada (TC) de su cabeza. Aunque esta localización anatómica de larvas de Oéstridos puede ser relativamente frecuente en otros géneros, como Oestrus, que sepamos, este es el primer caso que involucra al género Cephenemyia. Concretamente, una larva de segundo estadio de C. stimulator se encontró en la base del cráneo. La localización de una lesión macroscópica hemorrágica que afectaba al parénquima cerebral periférico a la ubicación de la larva sugiere que la colonización del tejido se produjo antes de que el animal fuese abatido. Dado que no se detectaron alteraciones o daños en los huesos craneales, sugerimos una posible ruta de migración larvaria a través de perforaciones de los huesos del cráneo. Finalmente, proponemos el uso del término “neuromiasis” para referirnos a la invasión del sistema nervioso central del hospedador por larvas de dípteros, particularmente de Oéstridos.

      Abstract: Resumen

      La cabra montés (Capra pyrenaica) es una especie endémica de la Península Ibérica que se encuentra en expansión por toda la provincia de Granada (Andalucía). No se conoce la presencia histórica de esta especie en el macizo de Sierra Elvira, localizado en plena Vega de Granada. Su presencia permanente desde hace menos de una década nos llevó a abordar el estudio de su población y conocer sus parámetros demográficos y poblacionales: densidad, índice reproductor, relación de sexos y pirámide de edad. Para ello, se llevó a cabo un muestreo durante la primavera de 2019 usando el método de Distance Sampling. Para evaluar el uso del espacio por parte de la especie y determinar el área de campeo, se procedió a la captura y marcaje de un ejemplar. Gracias a los resultados obtenidos, y aunque son datos preliminares, se ha podido determinar el tamaño y los parámetros que definen esta nueva población de cabra montés. Este estudio sirve para iniciar un programa de gestión de esta población que incluye una adecuada monitorización, adecuación del hábitat y plan de control.

      Palabras clave: Capra pyrenaica, colonización, densidad poblacional, Sierra Elvira.

      The Iberian ibex (Capra pyrenaica) is an endemic species of the Iberian Peninsula that is expanding throughout the province of Granada (Andalucía). Historical records of this species in the Sierra Elvira massif, in the Vega de Granada, are missing. This recent permanent establishment of this species in the study area allows us to examine different demographic parameters from this population (density, reproductive index, sex ratio and age distribution). To approach this goal, we sampled by the Distance Sampling method this ibex population during the spring of 2019. Besides, to evaluate the use of the space and determine the range size, we captured and marked one individual. Although the preliminary basis of the study, the results define several population parameters of this newly established ibex population. Overall, this study can be used to develop a proper management program of this population that includes monitoring, habitat adaptation and a harvest control plan.

      The study of people’s knowledge through interviews and questionnaires can provide a good picture of the composition of mammal communities. However, there is considerable potential for error and bias in these surveys, including some associated with the familiarity of respondents with wildlife. Our main goals were: 1) to assess mammal community composition of the Huinay Biological Reserve, a remote Valdivian rainforest area in southern Chile, and 2) to evaluate the relationship between the degree of respondents’ contact with native mammals and their knowledge about the mammal community. A questionnaire was designed to gather data about the mammal species recorded by people who lived in, or had visited, the area between 2010 and 2013. A total of 13 mammal species were mentioned by 43 participants in the survey. Overall, all the mammal species that inhabit the study area according to general mammal distribution maps were identified in our survey. Both the total number of species mentioned (observed or not) and the number of species seen by the respondents were positively associated with the time they stayed in the area. Our findings suggest that questionnaire surveys may provide useful information about the composition of mammal communities in remote areas of southern Chile, but selecting knowledgeable respondents is challenging.

      El estudio del conocimiento de la gente mediante cuestionarios puede proporcionar una buena idea de la composición de las comunidades de mamíferos. Sin embargo, existen sesgos y errores potenciales en estos estudios, como los asociados a la familiaridad de los encuestados con la fauna. Nuestros objetivos principales fueron: 1) evaluar la composición de la comunidad de mamíferos de la Reserva Biológica de Huinay, un área remota de bosque Valdiviano en el sur de Chile, y 2) analizar la relación entre el grado de contacto de los encuestados con los mamíferos nativos y su conocimiento sobre la comunidad de mamíferos. Designamos un cuestionario para obtener información sobre el número de especies de mamíferos registradas por la gente que vivió en, o visitó, el área entre 2010 y 2013. Los 43 participantes en este trabajo registraron un total de 13 especies de mamíferos. Todas las especies que habitan en la zona según los atlas generales de distribución fueron citadas por los participantes. Tanto el número de especies citadas como las observadas estuvieron correlacionadas positivamente con el tiempo que los participantes habían permanecido en el área. Nuestros resultados sugieren que los estudios basados en cuestionarios pueden proporcionar una buena visión general de la composición de las comunidades de mamíferos de áreas remotas del sur de Chile, pero también indican el reto que supone seleccionar participantes bien informados en estas áreas.

      Abstract: Resumen

      Se han medido 98 mandíbulas y 717 dientes de ejemplares de Sorex (Soricidae, Eulipotyphla) del Pirineo aragonés, navarro y vasco. El material, de la colección del Instituto Pirenaico de Ecología (IPE-CSIC), proviene de egagrópilas recogidas entre 1967 y 1969. Las muestras se han reclasificado utilizando criterios óseos morfológicos, biométricos y funciones discriminantes, resultando pertenecer a las especies Sorex minutus y Sorex coronatus. El estudio de S. coronatus es interesante ya que por su similitud con S. araneus y Sorex granarius se suelen confundir cuando sólo se cuenta con restos óseos y por tanto la información sobre cada especie en la península Ibérica y especialmente en Aragón es escasa. Por esta razón normalmente se agrupan ambas especies como Sorex sp. El análisis de las medidas muestra que hay una diferencia entre las poblaciones occidentales y las orientales del área estudiada. En general decrecen en tamaño mandibular hacia el oeste, y son más grandes en zonas con mayor influencia mediterránea que en las de influencia atlántica. Aunque las medidas más adecuadas para observar este fenómeno son las mandibulares, las medidas dentales permiten la comparación de los resultados con datos bibliográficos de material paleontológico, del que no se suelen conservar mandíbulas completas.

      Palabras clave: egagrópilas, musaraña, Soricidae, osteometría, variabiliad geográfica.

      We have measured 98 mandibles and 717 teeth of shrews of Sorex (Soricidae, Eulipotyphla) of the Aragonian, Navarre and Vasc Pyrenees. The material comes from owl pellets recovered between 1967 and 1969 and takes part of the collection of the Instituto Pirenaico de Ecología (IPE-CSIC). The material has been reclassified using osseous criteria, biometrics and discriminant functions, obtaining that these species are Sorex coronatus and Sorex minutus. The study of S. coronatus is interesting because it is similar to S. araneus and Sorex granarius so it is easy to confuse them if we only have bones and teeth. For this reason, people usually group them as Sorex sp. As consequence, the information about them in the Iberian Peninsula is scarce, and especially in Aragón. The analyses of the measurements show that there is a difference among the occidental populations and the oriental zones of the area studied. In general, values decrease to the west; they are larger in the zones with a Mediterranean influence than in the Atlantic ones. The most useful measurements to compare them are the measurements of mandibles. On the other hand, the measurements of teeth allow the comparison with bibliographic data of palaeontological material that consists mainly of incomplete mandibles.

      Keywords: geographic variability, osteometry, owl pellets, shrew, Soricidae.
