Ixodes (Multidentatus) paranaensis n. sp. (Acari: Ixodidae) a parasite of Streptoprocne biscutata (Sclater 1865) (Apodiformes: Apodidae) birds in Brazil.
During an ecological study with Streptoprocne biscutata (Sclater) (Apodiformes: Apodidae) birds, that inhabit caves in the Quatro Barras County, State of Paran, Southern Brazil, a new tick species of the subgenus Multidentatus was observed.
Wide-range genetic connectivity of Coney, Cephalopholis fulva (Epinephelidae), through oceanic islands and continental Brazilian coast.
The genetic data revealed that population expansions probably occurred due to the changes in the sea levels that occurred during the Pleistocene, and the large population connectivity found in Coney constitutes relevant conditions for their biological conservation.
Body masses and measurements of birds from southern Atlantic Forest, Brazil
Five hundred and eigh body masses of74 forest birds, and measurements of wing, tail , tarsus and beak of 14 poorly known species mist-netted at two sites in the Atlantic Forest of eastern Parana
Nest and egg description of threatened Herpsilochmus spp. from coastal forest habitats in Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil (Aves: Thamnophilidae)
The nest of H. sellowi was built with fungal hyphae, a trait common among some birds, and both eggs were moderately beige with brown spots, the first account for nest behavior for Atlantic rainforest antwrens.
Reproduction of the Mottled Piculet in southern Brazil
The nesting behavior of Mottled Piculets was similar to that reported for other members of the genus, information on the reproductive biology of species in the genus Picumnus is still limited.
ATLANTIC BIRD TRAITS: a data set of bird morphological traits from the Atlantic forests of South America.
The ATLANTIC BIRD TRAITS (ABT) is the most comprehensive data set on measurements of bird morphological traits found in a biodiversity hotspot; it provides data for basic and applied research at multiple scales, from individual to community, and from the local to the macroecological perspectives.
Feather mites (Acari, Astigmata) associated with birds in an Atlantic Forest fragment in Northeastern Brazil.
The number of new geographic records, as well as the hitherto unknown mite-host associations, supports the high estimates of diversity for feather mites of Brazil and shows the need for research to increase knowledge of plumicole mites in the Neotropical region.
ATLANTIC BIRDS: a data set of bird species from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest.
A data set on Brazilian Atlantic Forest bird occurrence and abundance samples using multiple methods, including qualitative surveys, mist nets, point counts, and line transects, to reinforce the critical situation of these taxa in the Atlantic Forest.
Additional information on ticks (Ixodidae) infesting birds in Atlantic Forest fragments in State of Paraná, South Brazil
This study provides new tick-host records for the state of Paraná and for Brazil, with two nymphs identified as Amblyomma sp.
