Scarabaeinae specimens were collected with the use of pitfall traps baited with human excrement, rotten meat and rotting banana, between May 2009 and April 2010, in three forest fragments in Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil: 'Morro do Elefante' (MOEL), 'Morro do Cerrito' (MOCE) and 'Campus da Universidade Federal de Santa Maria' (UFSM). A total of 19,699 individuals belonging to 33 species were collected. Canthidium aff. trinodosum Boheman, 1858, Canthon latipes Blanchard, 1845… Expand
Estrutura e organização de assembleias de Scarabaeinae (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae) em diferentes fitofisionomias no sul do Brasil
TLDR
The forest showed the highest observed species richness and a fraction of these are unique to this environment, and rarely occurs in other types of ecosystems, and in a broader context the landscape can play an important role in diversity of dung beetles. Expand
Escarabeídeos (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) de campo e floresta da Reserva Biológica de São Donato, Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil
TLDR
Differences in environmental structure (and associated climate) and food resource availability may be decisive and limiting factors for beetle occurrence in forest versus field areas, as various species were restricted to a specific habitat type or season. Expand
Influência da paisagem nas assembleias de Scarabaeinae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) em um ambiente agrícola no sul de Santa Catarina
Legal reserves aim to conserve native forests and ecological processes, and are able to form heterogeneous mosaics in the landscape. This study aimed to describe and compare assemblages ofExpand

Levantamento de besouros copro-necrófagos (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae) do Bioma Pampa
TLDR
The aim of this study was to inventorize the fauna of Scarabaeinae, which are important group of animal detritivorous and biomarkers of environmental impacts on ecosystems in areas located in the far south of the Rio Grande do Sul, as well as learning their habits and eating behaviors. Expand
Cerrado vegetation conversion into exotic pastures negatively impacts flower chafer beetle assemblages in the west-Central Brazil
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Cerrado conversion into exotic pastures reduces the abundance and species richness of flower chafer beetles, causing the alteration in species composition in terms of dispersion. Expand

Dung beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae) of two non-native habitats in Bagé, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
TLDR
A comparison of the richness of the studied Scarabaeinae in this region showed that the richness found in the exotic habitats investigated was lower, suggesting that these habitats seem to have influenced the ScarabAEinae fauna, giving support only to common species native to the region with generalist eating habits.

There must be a competitive mechanism of invasion resistance bounding the abundance of native species and D. gazella invasibility to verify the invasion of the dung beetles community from intra-Amazonian savanna by the African species Digitonthophagusgazella. Expand

TLDR
The Tabuleiro was the most species-rich; however dominance was greatest in the Forest; the presence of common species in the two studied areas confers a moderate similarity to the forest andTabuleiro habitats. Expand

TLDR
Six field trips were carried bimonthly in three fragments of Decidual Seasonal Forest of Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul State, in which M had the highest richness and abundance of species and about half of the total registered species were exclusive from one of the three localities. Expand
[Dung beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeinae) of the northwestern slope of the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, Colombia].
TLDR
Abiotic factors such as altitude, temperature and humidity cannot explain observed variation in community structure across sites, indicating other variables such as vegetation cover, density of the vegetation and soil type may play a role in the community structure of these insects. Expand
[Community structure of Scarabaeinae (Scarabaeidae: Coleoptera) in Brazilian savannah phytophysiognomies and its importance for conservation].
TLDR
The traps baited with feces were the most efficient in capturing dung beetles, and the forest was the phytophysiognomy with the highest diversity and abundance, which indicates that plant-covering influences the structure of the dung beetle community. Expand
