Fragmentation and destruction of a habitat are strongly relevant aspects to determine the richness and the dynamics of the mammals in ecosystems. This study, developed from October, 2010 to July, 2011 in three Atlantic Forest remnants in Ipumirim, SC, Brazil, aims at identifying the diversity of large- and medium-sized nonflying mammals and verifying associations of the patterns obtained with features of the researched areas. The approximate measurement of the inventoried areas is 51 ha. The data collection of the mammal fauna was obtained through direct registers, with the use of a photographical trap, and indirect records through the search of material that indicated the presence of species. The total amount of species studied was 13, pertaining to nine families: Canidae 1, Cebidae 1, Dasyproctidae 1, Dasypodidae 2, Didelphidae 2, Felidae 2, Mustelidae 2, and Procyonidae 2. In addition, landscape data was obtained through the development of a chorological matrix of the areas and the data about the microhabitats. From these data, 20 models for analysis were stipulated and this selection was determined with the corrected Akaike Information Criterion AICc. The aspect of greater influence on the magnitude of the obtained data was the degree of human occupation in the landscape.
