Description

These datasets are part of the article entitled 'Land-use changes lead to functional loss of terrestrial mammals in a Neotropical rainforest' available at https://doi.org/10.1016/j.pecon.2021.02.006. Assemblage dataset Table S1. Assemblages dataset. Assemblages of medium- and large-sized mammals of the Atlantic Forest, Brazil, used for analysis, including the selected studies, geographic coordinates, biogeographic regions, number of forest remnants in each study, the patch size extracted from the studies, and the patch size calculated in buffers of 2 km radius of each area (in ha), sampling methods and species richness. All studies that compose this dataset are properly cited in this table. Table S2. Species composition of 96 assemblages of medium- and large-sized mammals of the Atlantic Forest, Brazil. All studies that compose this dataset are properly cited in this table. Diet dataset Table S3. Diet dataset. Contribution of the 83 species of medium- and large-sized mammals of the Atlantic Forest, Brazil, for each ecological function, including the number of studies used to characterize each function per species, mean values and standard deviations for each ecological function, species mean body mass (in kg; extracted from Paglia et al., 2012) and the classification of species as sensitive or resilient to habitat loss based on threat categories according to the Brazilian (MMA/ICMBio, 2018) and IUCN (2020) red lists. All studies that compose this dataset are properly cited in this table.
