RECORDS OF AN INVASIVE DUNG BEETLE SPECIES, DIGITONTHOPHAGUS GAZELLA (FABRICIUS, 1787) (COLEOPTERA: SCARABAEIDAE), IN PERU
TLDR
The first reports of D. gazella in Peru indicate that the species is now, perhaps, the most widespread dungbeetle in tropical and subtropical pastures and continues to expand range as it invades new regions following the anthropogenic clearing of forests.
Positive associations among rare species and their persistence in ecological assemblages
TLDR
The positive and negative spatial association networks of 326 disparate assemblages are described, showing a general organization pattern that simultaneously supports the primacy of competition and the persistence of rare species.
Meta-analysis reveals that pollinator functional diversity and abundance enhance crop pollination and yield
TLDR
It is shown that, in addition to pollinator abundance, functional trait divergence also positively impacts yield of oilseed rape crops, which supports the complementarity hypothesis that pollination function is maintained by non-overlapping trait distributions.
Diversity of the dung beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeinae) in an altitudinal gradient in the east slope of los Andes, Napo province, Ecuador
ABSTRACT We present a preliminary analysis of the diversity of dung beetles in an altitudinal gradient on the East slope of Los Andes, Napo province, Ecuador. We sampled 12 localities within a 2200-m
On the identity of Microananteris, with a discussion on pectinal morphology, and description of a new Ananteris from Brazil (Scorpiones, Buthidae)
TLDR
The characters originally used to define the monotypic genus Microananteris Lourenco, 2003 are reanalyzed from the point of view of their usefulness to justify its recognition as a genus apart from Ananteris Thorell, 1891 and there is no evidence in support of its validity.
First report on the distribution of Digitonthophagus gazella (Fabricius, 1787) (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) in Bolivia
Se reporta por primera vez la presencia de Digitonthophagus gazella en Bolivia, enlistando las localidades donde se han colectado especimenes de esta especie. Se discuten algunas hipotesis de su
