I am an undergraduate student of Biological Sciences at UFSCar (Universidade Federal de São Carlos) and I did my scientific initiation at UNESP – Rio Claro. My interest is to see how the brown jaguars (Puma concolor) are moving in agricultural matrices from the edge of forest fragments. The research was performed from the location data of four animals and thus we were able to measure the distances that these were using from the agricultural matrices studied.
Scientific Initiation. 2017. Use of different depths of agricultural matrices such as sugarcane, orange, eucalyptus and grass, by the feline Puma concolor.
