The effects of habitat fragmentation on four Ctenus spider populations in central Amazonia were investigated. Fourteen Ctenidae species were collected in nine forest fragments (⩽10 ha) and nine continuous forest sites (>1000 ha). Four species, belonging to the genus Ctenus (C. amphora, C. crulsi, C. manauara and C. villasboasi), were found in sufficient numbers to determine by covariance analyses, how isolation and litter depth affect their population densities. Litter depth did not affect… CONTINUE READING
