Diversity and seasonality of Scarabaeinae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) in forest fragments in Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
The richness and abundance of Scarabaeinae were positively correlated with the air temperature, and the richness of the fragment decreased according to the smaller size and the greater degree of disturbance of vegetation structure. Expand
Diversity of the families of Coleoptera captured with pitfall traps in five different environments in Santa Maria, RS, Brazil.
This work analysed the diversity, richness, abundance and similarity at the soil surface of Coleoptera composition among five environments: native forest, native grassland, Pinus elliottii plantation, Eucalyptus saligna plantation and degraded area by soil use in southern Brazil, from October 2004 to October 2005.

Climatic variables drive temporal patterns of α and β diversities of dung beetles.
Partitioning β-diversity into temporal components is a promising approach to unveil patterns of the community dynamics and to produce insights on mechanisms underlying such patterns. Expand
[Parasitism of Argon lota Hewitson (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae) by Brachymeria pandora (Crawford) (Hymenoptera: Chalcididae) in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil].
This note reports the first record of parasitism of Argon lota Hewitson pupae by the facultative gregarious parasitoid Brachymeria pandora (Crawford). Up to six adults (three males and three females)Expand
