The aim of this study was to (i) measure differences in species richness between edge habitats versus interior habitats, or more precisely the edge effect, and (ii) test the species–area relationship for gall-forming insects in natural forest patches in a Brazilian floodplain (Pantanal of Mato Grosso do Sul). These patches are regionally known as ‘capões’, basically composed of woody vegetation. Twenty-seven patches were surveyed. In each patch two transects were conducted for gall sampling… CONTINUE READING
