ABSTRACT We investigated the distribution patterns of leaf mining insects along an elevational gradient in cerrado vegetation of southeastern Brazil. We tested four hypotheses related to the distribution of mining insects: (1) the “altitudinal gradient hypothesis,” which predicts that mining insect species richness will decrease with altitude or elevation; (2) the “habitat- mediated richness hypothesis,” which predicts that mining insect species richness will be higher in mesic habitats than in… CONTINUE READING
