Harvestmen: the biology of Opiliones
TLDR
This monograph discusses the phylogeny and biogeography of harvestmen, a small group of animals that lived in what is now Europe more than 3,000 years ago and the role they played in the evolution of humankind.
Bat flies (Diptera: Streblidae, Nycteribiidae) parasitic on bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera) at Parque Estadual da Cantareira, São Paulo, Brazil: parasitism rates and host-parasite associations.
TLDR
Seven new occurrences were recorded for the state of São Paulo, increasing the range for T. andersoni and the relationships between parasitism and host sex, reproductive stage, age hyperparasitism by fungi are discussed.
Phylogeny of harvestmen family Gonyleptidae inferred from a multilocus approach (Arachnida: Opiliones)
TLDR
The traditional use of a small set of morphological characters in the systematics of Gonyleptidae is unable to explain the complex evolution of the family.
Systematic review of the neotropical family stygnidae: (opiliones, laniatores, gonyleptoidea)
TLDR
A new classification is herein proposed based on a cladistic analysis using 35 terminals and 50 characters of external morphology and male genitalia that forms the basis of the supraspecific classification of Stygnidae.
A comparative cytogenetic analysis of 2 Bothriuridae species and overview of the chromosome data of Scorpiones.
TLDR
Current understanding regarding the processes of chromosome evolution that have occurred in Bothriuridae and in Scorpiones as a whole is elucidated.
FAUNISTIC SIMILARITY AND HISTORIC BIOGEOGRAPHY OF THE HARVESTMEN OF SOUTHERN AND SOUTHEASTERN ATLANTIC RAIN FOREST OF BRAZIL
TLDR
This biome shows the highest diversity of harvestmen inhabiting Brazil; 2/3 of the species are found in this area, and a high variation in richness was observed; 4–64 species per locality.
Complex meiotic configuration of the holocentric chromosomes: the intriguing case of the scorpion Tityus bahiensis
TLDR
Female prophase I cells revealed multivalent chromosome associations and/or unsynapsed or distinctly associated chromosome regions (gaps, less-condensed chromatin, or loop-like structure) that were continuous with synapsed chromosome segments, and data permitted us to suggest that the chromosomal rearrangements of T. bahiensis occurred in a heterozygous state.
Lines of defense in the harvestman Hoplobunus mexicanus (Arachnida: Opiliones): Aposematism, stridulation, thanatosis, and irritant chemicals
The lines of defense in the harvestman Hoplobunus mexicanus are reported including the complete chemical characterization of defensive secretion, a morphological description of the ozopore, and a
Harvestmen in an Atlantic forest fragmented landscape: Evaluating assemblage response to habitat quality and quantity
TLDR
The results suggest that harvestmen are strongly affected by habitat quality and quantity, probably because, compared to other arthropod groups, they are relatively uniform in some relevant biological aspects.
Two new species of Charinus Simon, 1892 from Brazil with biological notes (Arachnida; Amblypygi; Charinidae)
TLDR
The limited occurrence of C. asturius on Ilhabela Island and its demands for specific microhabitats make the species threatened and vulnerable to the environmental damage caused by human occupation in the lower lands of the study site.
