The Chiquibul Forest Reserve is located in western Belize in the Maya Mountains and protects one of the largest patches of rainforest remaining in Central America. We conducted inventories of small mammals in the forest reserve from 4 July through 8 August 2001. Our five trapping sites were centered within a few kilometers of the Las Cuevas Field Station.

Abstract:

The Chiquibul Forest Reserve is located in western Belize in the Maya Mountains and protects one of the largest patches of rainforest remaining in Central America. We conducted inventories of small mammals in the forest reserve from 4 July through 8 August 2001. Our five trapping sites were centered within a few kilometers of the Las Cuevas Field Station. In total, we ran 3,686 trap-nights capturing 154 specimens (4.2% trap success) representing 15 species of small mammals. We ran mist nets for ten nights capturing 39 phyllostomid bats representing six species. Heteromys desmarestianus was the most abundant mammal trapped; it was captured at a rate four times more frequently than all other species. Ototylomys phyllotis and Handleyomys alfaroi were next in abundance. Almost all species of rodents and bats were in a high state of reproductive activity. Our efforts confirmed an additional eleven species to the Chiquibul Forest Reserve, five non-volant: Cryptotis mayensis, Oligoryzomys fulvescens, Handleyomys rostratus, Sigmodon toltecus, Nyctomys sumichrasti, and six volant: Carollia sowelli, Sturnira lilium, Artibeus jamaicensis, Dermanura toltecus, D. watsoni, Centurio senex. The biogeographic affinities of small mammals of the Maya Mountains lay more nested within the Central American faunal group -- less so than the Yucatan faunal region. The discovery of Cryptotis mayensis in the Maya Mountains provided a significant range and ecological extension. We present preliminary character traits to separate Sigmodon toletcus from S. hispidus.
