Confirmation of arboreal habits in Dromiciops gliroides: a key role in Chilean Temperate Rainforests

Dromiciops gliroides is a small marsupial endemic to the South American temperate rainforest. The Dromiciops gliroides has been considered a scansorial marsupial most frequently found in the understory. Nonetheless, several authors have hypothesized that this species could be arboreal because of its ability to climb through the vegetation. However, all previous studies on D. gliroides have been conducted from the ground, with no documentation of this species’ ability to climb trees, or how high they may reach. Here, we present the first evidence of arboreal habits in D. gliroides, and we analyze its functional importance for the biodiversity of forest canopies in Bosque Pehuen Park. Published in Ecosphere.

Bosque Pehuén Park’s Flora: A Contribution to the Knowledge of the Andean Montane Forests in the Araucanía Region, Chile

In Chile, most protected areas are located in the southern Andes, in mountainous landscapes at mid or high altitudes. Despite the increasing proportion of protected areas, few have detailed inventories of their biodiversity. This information is essential to define threats and develop long-term integrated conservation programs to face the effects of global change. Consequently, the objectives of this study were to describe the richness, conservation status, and species composition of the vascular flora found in Bosque Pehuén Park and analyze the relationships among altitude, species richness, and growth forms. Published in BioOne.
