Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera assemblages from riffles in mountain streams of Central Brazil: environmental factors influencing the distribution and abundance of immatures.
TLDR
Al altitude, hydrologic classification and vegetation cover were the most important factors explaining the distribution of Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera immatures in streams of the Brazilian Center-West. Expand
Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera assemblages in two Atlantic Rainforest streams, Southeastern Brazil
TLDR
Comunidades de Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera e Trichoptera (EPT) em substrato rochoso foram estudadas em dois riachos do Parque Estadual Intervales and indicaram que nao houve um padrao sazonal claro da variacao temporal da densidade. Expand
Fluctuations in Richness and Abundance of Social Wasps During the Dry and Wet Seasons in Three Phyto-Physiognomies at the Tropical Dry Forest of Brazil
TLDR
Variations in nest abundance were more intense in arbustive caatinga, moderate in forested Caatinga (24% decrease in number of active nests in the dry period), and low in agricultural systems (8% decreases in thedry period). Expand
Variable assessment of wing colouration in aerial contests of the red-winged damselfly Mnesarete pudica (Zygoptera, Calopterygidae)
TLDR
The results showed that males with more opaque wings and larger red spots were more likely to win contests, and suggested that there is a variation in the assessment strategy adopted by males. Expand
Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera assemblages in litter in a mountain stream of the Atlantic Rainforest from Southeastern Brazil
The study of Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera associated with litter in southeastern Brazil streams aimed to answer the following questions: 1) Does richness and composition of EPT faunaExpand
Description of the larva of Kempnyia colossica (Navás) (Plecoptera: Perlidae) with biological notes
In this paper, the larva of Kempnyia colossica (Navás 1934) is described based on material collected in Parque Estadual Intervales, São Paulo State, and biological notes are presented.
The Role of Wing Pigmentation, UV and Fluorescence as Signals in a Neotropical Damselfly
TLDR
The results suggest that UV, together with pigmentation, plays a role during mate recognition in males and females, and it seems that fluorescence signals and UV reflectance can also be part of communication in odonates. Expand
Description of the larva and redescription of the adult of Kempnyia neotropica Jacobsen and Bianchi (Plecoptera: Perlidae) with biological notes
TLDR
In this work, samples collected in the states of Goiás, Minas Gerais and São Paulo were analysed, confirming that all belong to a single species of Kempnyia neotropica. Expand
Diversity and structure of Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera (Insecta) assemblages from riffles in mountain streams of Central Brazil
TLDR
The diversity and structure of Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera assemblages in streams of Central Brazil was investigated and showed that anthropic action determined the patterns of diversity whereas the size of streams determined the faunistic composition. Expand
Environmental Factors Influencing Distribution and Abundance of Trichopteran Larvae in Central Brazilian Mountain Streams
The relationship among environmental factors, such as temperature, velocity, flow, conductivity, pH, vegetation cover, stream order, precipitation, and human influence was studied in terms of theirExpand
