Four new species of tuco-tucos identified from Bolivia
Date:7/18/2014

partment of Mammalogy at the American Museum of Natural History. Ctenomys lessai was named in honor of Enrique P. Lessa, an expert in Latin American mammalogy, evolution and the biology of tuco-tucos.

Though some biologists recently have criticized the collection of specimens as potentially jeopardizing fragile populations of rare animals, Gardner said collecting expeditions to biologically unknown areas remain a critical part of understanding life on the planet.

"The No. 1 cause of extinction of organisms is loss of habitat," he said. "Because of large-scale human-caused habitat destruction occurring worldwide, it is essential to create collections of organisms now and use modern methods of systematics and ecology to understand the history of life on earth, while we still can. Time is limited."
