Wednesday 30 December 2015

Dear friends and colleagues

We are happy to inform you that the latest edition of Edentata, the Newsletter of the IUCN/SSC Anteater, Sloth and Armadillo Specialist Group, is now available free of charge!
In this volume, number 16, you will find six articles, two short communications, and three field notes on a wide range of topics related to the conservation of xenarthrans.
This issue contains, among others,information about the spatial distribution and resource use of Bradypus variegatus; an analysis of the giant anteater reintroduction program in Corrientes, Argentina; new information about the distribution of Xenarthra in Uruguay and Peru; and a description of the first records of giant armadillo offspring in Colombia, with notes on parental and offspring behavior.
We hope you enjoy reading it and encourage biologists, naturalists, conservation specialists and other Xenarthra enthusiasts to submit their manuscripts for our next issue.
Last, but not least, we would like to thank the authors, reviewers and our graphics designer Kim Meek for their excellent work, as well as the AZA’s Pangolin, Aardvark and Armadillo Taxon Advisory Group (PAX TAG) and Austin Zoo for the generous financial support, and to John Gramieri who secured funding for this year’s issue on very short notice.

Yours sincerely,
the editors of Edentata: Mariella Superina, Nadia Moraes-Barros and Agustín M. Abba
