Use of stable carbon isotope ratio for foraging behavior analysis of capybara (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris) from Esteros del Iberá, Argentina
(Elsevier Gmbh, 2015-03)
We analyzed different aspects of the foraging behavior and habitat use for feeding of the capybara (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris) using carbon stable isotopes (13C/12C) measured in bone collagen and by direct observation. ...
Patterns of habitat use and selection by the capybara (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris): a landscape-scale analysis
(Springer Tokyo, 2014-03)
Habitat selection analysis provides useful information on how animals become distributed in response to spatial heterogeneity. Here, we analyze the habitat use and selection of different water bodies (marsh, swamps and ...
Redescription of Echinocoleus hydrochoeri (TRAVASSOS, 1916) (NEMATODA: TRICHURIDAE) from Hydrochoeris hydrochaeris LINNAEUS, 1766 (RODENTIA: CAVIIDAE) from Argentina
(American Society Of Parasitologists, 2013-02)
Twenty-eight Capillariinae species have been recorded in rodents; 1 of these was reported from a caviomorph rodent, Hydrochoeris hydrochaeris, and placed in the genus Echinocoleus by Moravec (1982). However, both original ...
Description of larva of Amblyomma romitii (Acari: Ixodidae) by optical and scanning electron microscopy, including porotaxy and phylogenetic analysis
The description of the larva of Amblyomma romitii Tonelli-Rondelli is based on optical and scanning electron microscopy. Larvae were obtained under laboratory conditions from an engorged female collected on capybara from ...

Hindlimb musculature of the largest living rodent Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris (Caviomorpha): Adaptations to semiaquatic and terrestrial styles of life
(Wiley-liss, Div John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2016-03)
The caviomorph species Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris (Cavioidea), or capybara, is the largest living rodent. This species is widely distributed, from northern South America to Uruguay and eastern Argentina, inhabiting in a ...
Experimental infection of capybaras Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris by Rickettsia rickettsii and evaluation of the transmission of the infection to ticks Amblyomma cajennense
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2009)
The present study evaluated the infection of capybaras (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris) by Rickettsia rickettsii and their role as amplifier hosts for horizontal transmission of R. rickettsii to Amblyomma cajennense ticks. Two ...
