Resumen

Monitoring natural populations is important for the generation of knowledge about the trends of the species in space and time. In addition, it provides information on the diversity and ecology in different ecosystems. Coyote ecology has been studied in different parts of Mexican Republic. However, for the state of Chihuahua, there is no information on population trends, habitat, diet, and their role in the ecosystem. Specifically at RET Namiquipa, Chihuahua, the diversity of mammals and ecology of coyote is unknown. Three objectives were established to know the diversity of mammals and the ecology of C. latrans; (1) identify the taxonomic diversity of medium and large mammals, (2) estimate and compare the index of abundance, habitat selection and diet of C. latrans, and (3) identify endoparasites of C. latrans through collected scats. The study was carried out from april 2018 to march 2019 (two nights / month) in pine-oak forest and open medium grassland. Sixteen species of medium and large mammals were recorded, representing 12% of the state's fauna. Higher RAI of coyote was found in POF (0.30) vs OMG (0.23). However, there was no indication that coyotes select for POF over OMG (ꭓ2 = 2.96, P > 0.05). Three nematodes belonging to the genus Physaloptera sp. were reported in coyote scats for first time to the state. This study provides the first information on the ecology of the coyote and the diversity of mammals in the area, being a pioneer for further research.
