Influence of landscape structure in movement patterns and population density of the crab-eating fox (Cerdocyon thous). This proposal aims to understand how the landscape structure influences population dynamics and possible population persistence of the crab-eating fox (Cerdocyon thous) in the Pantanal biome landscape. Advised by Milton C. Ribeiro and Luiz G. R. Oliveira-Santos (UFMS, Campo Grande - MS).
