Phylogeny of harvestmen family Gonyleptidae inferred from a multilocus approach (Arachnida: Opiliones)
TLDR
The traditional use of a small set of morphological characters in the systematics of Gonyleptidae is unable to explain the complex evolution of the family.
FAUNISTIC SIMILARITY AND HISTORIC BIOGEOGRAPHY OF THE HARVESTMEN OF SOUTHERN AND SOUTHEASTERN ATLANTIC RAIN FOREST OF BRAZIL
TLDR
This biome shows the highest diversity of harvestmen inhabiting Brazil; 2/3 of the species are found in this area, and a high variation in richness was observed; 4–64 species per locality.
Harvestmen in an Atlantic forest fragmented landscape: Evaluating assemblage response to habitat quality and quantity
TLDR
The results suggest that harvestmen are strongly affected by habitat quality and quantity, probably because, compared to other arthropod groups, they are relatively uniform in some relevant biological aspects.
Two new species of Protimesius from northern Brazil (Opiliones: Laniatores: Stygnidae).
TLDR
Two new species of Protimesius Roewer, 1913 (Stygnidae), are described from northern Brazil and a new cladistic analysis for the genus is presented, and a key is given for the 18 species ofProtimesius for which males are known.
The harvestmen fauna (Arachnida: Opiliones) of the Parque Estadual Carlos Botelho, and the Floresta Nacional de Ipanema, São Paulo, Brazil
The harvestmen fauna of the Floresta Nacional de Ipanema (FLONA Ipanema) and Parque Estadual Carlos Botelho (PE Carlos Botelho) were inventoried using nocturnal manual collection and sifting of
A new family of Gonyleptoidea from South America (Opiliones, Laniatores)
A new family of Laniatores, Gerdesiidae fam. nov., is proposed based on molecular and morphological evidence. Data also indicate that this new family is the sister family of Tricommatidae.
Systematic revision and cladistic analysis of the Brazilian subfamily Sodreaninae (Opiliones : Gonyleptidae)
TLDR
The biogeographical analysis (Brooks Parsimony Analysis) resulted in a single and fully resolved most parsimonious tree with three main: components: northern (Bahia and Serra do Espinhaco), southern (Santa Catarina, Parana,Serra do Mar of Sao Paulo), and central (Espirito Santo, Serra da Bocaina).
Review of the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest harvestman Longiperna (Opiliones: Gonyleptidae: Mitobatinae)
Longiperna Roewer, 1929 is revised and new records of distribution are presented for the Brazilian Costal Atlantic Rain Forest (from Rio de Janeiro to Santa Catarina states). The following new
Review of the Brazilian harvestman genus Roeweria Mello-Leitão, 1923 (Opiliones: Gonyleptidae)
TLDR
The genus Roeweria Mello-Leitao, 1923 is revised and a variation on external morphological characters and male genitalia is presented forRoeweria virescens (Mello- leitao), which can be distinguished from other members of the genus by the presence of a ventral process on the penis and by very large ventral apophyses on the apex of the male femur and patella IV.
The database of the PREDICTS (Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems) project
TLDR
To the knowledge, this is the largest and most geographically and taxonomically representative database of spatial comparisons of biodiversity that has been collated to date; it will be useful to researchers and international efforts wishing to model and understand the global status of biodiversity.
