Towards an ecologically-sustainable forestry in the Atlantic Forest
Since pristine Atlantic Forest remnants are vanishing, and biological reserves are in short, conservation of biodiversity will largely depend on proper management of the anthropogenic matrix. Here,Expand
The strong influence of collection bias on biodiversity knowledge shortfalls of Brazilian terrestrial biodiversity
The knowledge on species richness, species composition and endemism in the Brazilian biodiversity is strongly biased spatially, and despite differences in sampling effort for each taxonomic group, roadside bias affected them equally. Expand
A revision of the Neotropical spider genus Ancylometes Bertkau (Araneae: Pisauridae)
Spiders of the genus are large nocturnal ground-living hunting spiders with a strong affinity in most species, to water bodies within their tropical environment, and those species hunt also on small vertebrates like frogs, tadpoles and fishes. Expand
The arachnid order Schizomida in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest: a new species of Rowlandius and new records of Stenochrus portoricensis (Schizomida: Hubbardiidae)
Two species of hubbardiid microwhipscorpions (Schizomida: Hubbardiidae) are recorded from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Rowlandius linsduarteae sp. nov. is described and illustrated based onExpand
Revision and cladistic analysis of the Neotropical spider genus Phoneutria Perty, 1833 (Araneae, Ctenidae), with notes on related Cteninae
The genus Phoneutria is revised, including five current species, including P. reidyi, and the following new synonymies are established: P. keyserlingi and P. pertyi (F. Pickard-Cambridge) with P. nigriventer; P. depilata (Strand), P. Nigriventroides ( Strand), Ctenus chilesicus Strand, ‘‘C. Expand
Description of Zabius gaucho (Scorpiones, Buthidae), a new species from southern Brazil, with an update about the generic diagnosis
The presence of a species of Zabius in southern Brazil lends additional support to the generalized distributional track known as “peripampasic track,” which zoogeographically links the central Sierras Pampeanas with ancient mountains in the southern province of Buenos Aires, southeastern Uruguay and southern Brazil.

Arachnida at "Reserva Ducke", Central Amazonia/Brazil
Data show, that almost one-fourth of the families presently known in the Arachnida and about 2% of the worlds described species are represented in Amazonia. Expand
Seven new species of Latonigena (Araneae, Gnaphosidae) from South America
Seven new species of Latonigena Simon, 1893 are described, including the first descriptions of males of this genus, which is described from Bolivia and Brazil. Expand
Delimiting Areas of Endemism through Kernel Interpolation
The Geographical Interpolation of Endemism (GIE) was demonstrated to be effective in identifying areas of endemism in multiple scales, with fuzzy edges and supported by more synendemic species than in the other methods. Expand
