We used 2 sets of environmental variables: The shift from patagonicuus to east, far from the Andes Mountains, might be explained by vast glacial extensions covering such areas, and the presence of extreme climatic conditions typical of periglacial environments Rabassa et al.
However, most mustelids associate only briefly during the mating season. The 2nd data set contains elevation data; average monthly minimum, medium, and maximum temperatures; monthly precipitation; and 19 bioclimatic variables Humans et al.
The specific food habits of Patagonian weasels are little known, patagoincus the fact that this species has reduced molars and well-formed carnassials suggests that it is primarily carnivorous Ewer, Viability of the critically endangered African wild ass Equus africanus population on Messir Plateau Eritrea.
