Uncovering the vertebrate scavenger guild composition and functioning in the Cerrado biodiversity hotspot
Scavenging is widespread among vertebrates, being very important for maintaining certain ecosystem functions. Despite this, the scavenger communities remain poorly known in some biomes, especially in the Neotropics. Our main objective was to describe for the first time the scavenger community and identify the factors affecting scavenging efficiency in the Brazilian Cerrado. We analyzed the effects of vegetation cover, time of carcass placement and carcass weight, on scavenger species richness,doi:10.1111/btp.13006 fatcat:qk6slkgz3jcmplt6cwyytvj4aa
