Additive partitioning of butterfly diversity in a fragmented landscape: importance of scale and implications for conservation
Aim Most of the Atlantic Forest in Brazil occurs in fragments of various sizes. Previous studies indicate that forest fragmentation affects fruit-feeding butterflies. Conservation strategies that… Expand

- 7 January 2012
Nowadays 37% of Earth’s ice-free land is composed by fragments of natural habitats settled in anthropogenic biomes. Therefore, we have to improve our knowledge about distribution of organisms in… Expand
The effect of reduced-impact logging on fruit-feeding butterflies in Central Amazon, Brazil
The Amazon region represents more than a half of all tropical forests in the world, and has been threatened by many anthropogenic activities, including several kinds of timber harvesting. The… Expand
Studies with butterfly bait traps: an overview
In the last decades, there has been a considerable increase in literature concerning ecological studies employing bait traps to capture butterflies. The growing interest in this kind of studies has… Expand
Temporal diversity patterns and phenology in fruit-feeding butterflies in the Atlantic Forest.
The Atlantic Forest deserves special attention due to its high level of species endemism and degree of threat. As in other tropical biomes, there is little information about the ecology of the… Expand
Sustainability Agenda for the Pantanal Wetland: Perspectives on a Collaborative Interface for Science, Policy, and Decision-Making
Building bridges between environmental and political agendas is essential nowadays in face of the increasing human pressure on natural environments, including wetlands. Wetlands provide critical… Expand
Large-sized insects show stronger seasonality than small-sized ones: a case study of fruit-feeding butterflies
Animal species have a restricted period during the year when conditions for development are optimal, and this is known as the temporal window. Duration of the temporal window can vary among species,… Expand
Fruit-feeding Butterfly Communities are Influenced by Restoration Age in Tropical Forests
Currently, a large-scale restoration project aims to restore around 15 million hectares of Atlantic Forest in Brazil. This will increase forest cover and connectivity among remnant sites as well as… Expand
Differences in thermal responses in a fragmented landscape: temperature affects the sampling of diurnal, but not nocturnal fruit-feeding Lepidoptera.
Weather is the primary determinant in butterfly activity, with temperature one of the key factors affecting the biology and behavior of most Lepidoptera. Despite evidence about the influence of… Expand
Vertical and temporal variability in the probability of detection of fruit‐feeding butterflies and moths (Lepidoptera) in tropical forest
One important source of variation present in all biodiversity sampling protocols is species detection probability (i.e. the probability of observing a species, given that it is present at a site). In… Expand
