The historical and recent distribution and status of mammals in Portugal




Historical and recent data on Portuguese mammals are presinted in this paper, occurring on the mainland andor in the Azores and Madeira Atlantic islands. Nowadays, 95 species of mammals are known in Portugal, of which only one (Nyctalus azoreum) is an endemic species and three 'others (Pipistrellus maderensis, Microtus cabrerae and Lynx pardina) are exclusive for Portugal and Spain. Moreover, two other species, Mustelu vison and Sciurus vulgaris are recent records for the Portuguese fauna, the first due to an accidental introduction and the second resulting from a recolonization by Spanish populations.
