The long life span of armadillos relative to the duration of this study and their low reproductive and recruitment rates Loughry and McDonough ; Nowak ; Redford ; Redford and Wetzelas well as potential barriers lakes to their migration into and out of the study area, suggest that changes in population size of C.
Although hunting pressure on South American populations of armadillos has been reported Cuellar, in press ; Loughry and McDonoughthere was no evidence of armadillos killed by humans inside or near the EEI during the period of this study.
The expected number of captures in each season was computed by multiplying the total number of captures by the proportion of months in each season during which fieldwork was done warm-wet: The armadillos captured were double-marked with a numbered ear tag National Band and Tag Co.

Thus, a fundamental step to describe a system composed of 2 or more similar species that are potential competitors is to determine their placement along relevant ecological axes Levin and Pacala The hypothesis that the patterns we observed are due to competitive interactions between these species, and unidinctus facilitate their coexistence, deserves further investigation.

In contrast, knowledge of the ecology and natural history of other armadillo species is scarce, especially for species occurring in Brazil e.
Armadillos were classified as juveniles when their carapaces were soft. For each species, data on all trapping occasions within a given trimester were pooled to form a single trapping occasion per trimester, yielding a total of 6 trapping occasions.
In Brazil, armadillos are relatively common and occur in a number of biomes, such as the Atlantic and Amazon rain forests, pampas, pantanal, caatinga, and cerrado Wetzel Most of the captures of both C. Although patterns of reproduction did not differ strikingly between these species, patterns of habitat use and activity suggest the possibility of competitive displacement at our study site.
Both species of armadillos used several habitats in the cerrado of the EEI, including the cerrado physiognomies campo sujo and campo cerrado, and gallery forests. Which species are on the road to recovery?
