The abundance of scorpions captured was significantly correlated with precipitation, real evapotranspiration, and abundance of invertebrates (mainly insects).
Refining the establishment of guilds in Neotropical spiders (Arachnida: Araneae)
We present a refinement in the establishment of guilds in Neotropical spiders based on information assessed by assigning different levels of taxa identification, which allowed better descriptions of…
Notes on the behavior of Pachistopelma rufonigrum Pocock (Araneae, Theraphosidae, Aviculariinae)
The authors' data suggested that P. rufonigrum inhabits only these species of bromeliads, since all stages of the life cycle were observed in the plant.
Microhabitat selection and co-occurrence of Pachistopelma rufonigrum Pocock (Araneae, Theraphosidae) and Nothroctenus fuxico sp. nov. (Araneae, Ctenidae) in tank bromeliads from Serra de Itabaiana,…
According to these results, differences in plant structure do not affect either spider abundance or microhabitat selection.
