The distribution and composition of aquatic insect communities in streams at a local scale are considered to be primarily determined by environmental factors and interactive relationships within the… Expand
Treeholes as Calling, Breeding, and Developmental Sites for the Amazonian Canopy Frog, Phrynohyas resinifictrix (Hylidae)
Strong site fidelity, interference competition for treeholes by territorial males, continuous use of treeholes year after year, repeated oviposition in treeholes, and temporal constancy in density of calling males are consistent with the hypotheses that adequate treeholes are a limiting resource for P. resinifictrix populations.

Macrophyte rafts as dispersal vectors for fishes and amphibians in the Lower Solimões River, Central Amazon
Large rivers have played a prominent role in biogeographic theory for their potential to act as barriers for the dispersal of terrestrial organisms,and therefore be involved in the generation of… Expand
NEOTROPICAL XENARTHRANS: a data set of occurrence of xenarthran species in the Neotropics.
The main objective with Neotropical Xenarthrans is to make occurrence and quantitative data available to facilitate more ecological research, particularly if the xenarthran data is integrated with other data sets of Neotropic Series that will become available very soon. Expand
A new "Bat-Voiced" species of Dendropsophus Fitzinger, 1843 (Anura, Hylidae) from the Amazon Basin, Brazil.
A new species of treefrog diagnosed by the presence of pointed fingers and an advertisement call with a very high dominant frequency is described, tentatively included in the Dendropsophus microcephalus Group. Expand
Uncovering the diversity in the Amazophrynella minuta complex: integrative taxonomy reveals a new species of Amazophrynella (Anura, Bufonidae) from southern Peru
A new species of the genus Amazophrynella is described from the departments of Madre de Dios, Cusco and Junin in Peru, highlighting the importance of the remnant forest in preserving the biodiversity in Peru. Expand
FOAM NESTING IN A HYLID FROG (AMPHIBIA, ANURA)
This paper presents a distributional analysis of epigean populations of Eurycea neotenes in central Texas, with comments on the origin of troglobitic populations. Expand
Infection rates and genotypes of Trypanosoma rangeli and T. cruzi infecting free-ranging Saguinus bicolor (Callitrichidae), a critically endangered primate of the Amazon Rainforest.
This is the first survey of trypanosomiasis in a critically endangered species of tamarin, Saguinus bicolor (Callitrichidae), from the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest, where Trypanosoma cruzi and T. rangeli are commonly infective to non-human primates and several mammals. Expand
The Challenges of Survival in a Concrete Jungle: Conservation of the Pied Tamarin (Saguinus bicolor) in the Urban Landscape of Manaus, Brazil
The ongoing growth of the Brazilian city of Manaus—the largest urban center in the central Amazon basin—has led to extremes of habitat fragmentation and the local extinction of many animal and plant… Expand
Hunting Strategy of the Margay (Leopardus wiedii) to Attract the Wild Pied Tamarin (Saguinus bicolor)
Wild primate predation has been widely reported for various Neotropical cat species, and fingers and nails from Alouatta guariba clamitans in two fecal samples from Leopardus pardalis and suggests that the ocelot may be a potential predator of all Neotropic primates. Expand
