A wide variety of mammals contribute to the maintenance of dry tropical forests through seed dispersal and pollination. Bats, primates, rodents, and several generalist carnivores are important seed dispersers. This chapter discusses the diversity, importance, and conservation of tropical dry-forest mammals in Palo Verde. It also discusses the factors affecting the distribution and abundance of mammals, such as hunting, deforestation, land conversion, and pesticide contamination.

Keywords:   mammals, seed dispersal, pollination, Palo Verde, hunting, deforestation, land conversion, pesticide contamination
