The class Arachnida contains I I recent orders: Acari, Amblypygi, Araneae, Opiliones, Palpigradi, Pseudoscorpiones, Ricinulei, Schizomida, Scorpiones, Solifugae and Uropygi (Thelyphonida). In total, 2570 families, >9165 genera and >93455 species are known world-wide. More than 136 families, >482 genera and > 1547 described species occur in Amazonia. Data show, that almost one-fourth of the families presently known in the Arachnida and about 2% of the worlds described species are represented in… Expand
The systematics of the pseudoscorpion family Ideoroncidae (Pseudoscorpiones: Neobisioidea) in the New World
A review of the pseudoscorpion family Ideoroncidae in North and South America has revealed seven genera and 43 species, particularly the trichobothrial patterns of nymphs and adults. Expand
A checklist of the oribatid mite species (Acari: Oribatida) of Brazil.
The number of descriptions of new species since 2000 from Brazil and South America is high, but the oribatid mite fauna of these countries remains poorly known. Expand
The new genus Xorilbia is established for three species from the Amazon region previously included in the genus Albiorix: the type species X. gracilis and X. lamellifer, which bears a peculiar structure on the arolium that is only found in a few other genera of Ideoroncidae. Expand
Canga renatae, a new genus and species of Cyphophthalmi from Brazilian Amazon caves (Opiliones: Neogoveidae)
A new genus and species of Cyphophthalmi, Canga renatae gen. nov., is described from a system of caves in the Serra de Carajas, Para State, Brazil, greatly increases the known distribution of South American cyphophtalmids into the Eastern Brazilian Amazon forest. Expand
Systematic Revision of the Giant Vinegaroons of the Mastigoproctus giganteus Complex (Thelyphonida: Thelyphonidae) of North America
The North American vinegaroon, Mastigoproctus giganteus, is demonstrated to comprise a complex of range-restricted species rather than a single widespread polymorphic species, raising the diversity of the Order Thelyphonida Latreille, 1804, in North America from one species to seven. Expand
Comunidade edáfica de Araneae (Arthropoda, Arachnida) em uma floresta sazonalmente inundável na região Norte do Pantanal de Mato Grosso, Brasil
This study aimed to evaluate the community composition of ground dwelling Araneae in a seasonally flooded forest in the Northern region of Pantanal of Mato Grosso, based on its density and emergencyExpand
Behaviour and Ecology of Spiders
The infraorder Araneomorphae comprises more than nine-tenths of spider diversity, including most of the better known web-weaving spiders. As observed for other taxa, the group is particularly diverseExpand
Curves, Maps and Hotspots: The Diversity and Distribution of Araneomorph Spiders in the Neotropics
This chapter synthesizes the current taxonomic and biogeographic knowledge on the Neotropical araneomorphs, based on a large database of species described since 1758, and describes the pattern of described species accumulation through time in the Netropics. Expand
Edaphic and plant inhabiting oribatid mites (Acari: Oribatida) from Cerrado and Mata Atlantica ecosystems in the State of São Paulo, southeast Brazil
Forest sites in the eastern half of the State of Sao Paulo were surveyed to determine the oribatid mite fauna in areas of Cerrado (dry savannah) and Mata Atlântica (tropical rain forest) ecosystems.Expand
Microhabitat use and intraspecific associations in the whip spider Heterophrynus longicornis (Arachnida: Amblypygi) in forest fragments formed by the Tucuruí Dam lake, Pará, Brazil
There were no differences in whip spider abundance between the edge or interior of islands, but the whip spiders strongly preferred areas with greater numbers of trees, trees with a DBH between 10 to 50 cm, and trees with termite nests. Expand


Evolution and systematics of the Chelicerata
After approximately 40 years of discussion about the question whether the Arthropoda are a monophyletic or a paraphyletic group, or even a polyphyletic assemblage of unrelated taxa, mostExpand
Ants obtained from trees of a "Jacareuba" (Calophyllum brasiliense) forest plantation in Central Amazonia by canopy fogging: first results
Data on alpha-diversity, eveness and frequency of ants indicated a rapidly decreasing knock-down effect of both the synthetic and natural pyrethrum after application, which is somewhat distinct compared with that of Goupia glabra Aubl. Expand
A cladistic analysis of the 11 Recent arachnid orders suggests that Arachnida is monophyletic and composed of two principal lineages, Micrura and Dromopoda. Expand
The Phylogeny of the Extant Chelicerate Orders
The phylogeny of the extant chelicerate orders is examined in the light of morphological and molecular evidence, with the placement of solifugids and the status of the pedipalps responsible for most disagreement fairly robust to variation in analysis parameters. Expand
Arthropods obtained from the Amazonian tree species "Cupiuba" (Goupia glabra) by repeated canopy fogging with natural Pyrethrum
Two canopies of a widely distributed Amazonian tree species, Goupia glabra Aubl. (Celastraceae, height 38 and 45m) were fogged several times with 1% natural pyrethrum during the rainy and dry seasonsExpand
Four Neotropical Rainforests
The disappearance of tropical forests is a problem for the world environment. In this book, experts on four rainforest sights in Central and South America - Manaus, Brazil; Manu Park, Peru; BarroExpand
