Golightly3 Introduction: Deforestation is one of the primary causes of species decline worldwide. Some species, however, can take advantage of change and expand their distribution, putting endemic species in danger of extinction, changing the composition of biotic communities, and altering ecosystems. Methods: From June 2005 to July 2007, using radiotelemetry collars and implants we investigated home range, habitat use and body temperature dynamics of six capybaras (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris).
The study took place in a deforested area of the Central Dry Chaco region of Paraguay recently invaded by the species. Results: The results show that the average home range of capybaras was 183 ha, similar to reported home ranges of capybaras in the Brazilian Pantanal.
Within the study area, capybaras used and selected water significantl...
