Biodiversity and Temporal Distribution of Immature Culicidae in the Atlantic Forest, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil
The artificial larval habitats found in REGUA were colonized by a great diversity of species and high abundance as well, thus human artifacts left by the public in the area that collect water may promote an increase in mosquito populations. Expand
Estimating global arthropod species richness: refining probabilistic models using probability bounds analysis
This work uses a technique known as probability bounds analysis to assess the influence of assumptions about (1) distributional form and (2) dependencies between variables, and to construct probability bounds around the original model prediction distribution. Expand
The arms race between heliconiine butterflies and Passiflora plants – new insights on an ancient subject
Although the heliconiine–Passiflora model system has been intensively studied, the forces driving host‐plant preference in these butterflies remain unclear and there remain many exciting unanswered questions concerning this model system. Expand
Quo vadis biodiversity? Species richness following twenty years of taxonomic revisions on Afrotropical Galerucinae s. str. (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae)
A much lower diversity than previously predicted is suggested of the Afrotropical galerucine fauna based on hard data, a pattern that appears to be similar to that for other African galerucaine groups. Expand
Mapping and understanding the diversity of insects in the tropics: past achievements and future directions
Recent progress in molecular taxonomy, proliferation of community phylogenies, improved food web census techniques and an increasing focus on experiments promise an exciting time for tropical entomology. Expand
Mesophyll cell‐sucking herbivores (Cicadellidae: Typhlocybinae) on rainforest trees in Papua New Guinea: local and regional diversity of a taxonomically unexplored guild
Host specificity of a guild of sucking insects tapping leaf mesophyll cells was surveyed for the first time in the tropics, on 65 woody species from a lowland rainforest in Papua New Guinea, to estimate that there may be at least 2775 typhlocybine species in PNG, in comparison to the global total of only 4508 taxonomically described species.

Morphological traits: predictable responses to macrohabitats across a 300 km scale
If generalities in morphological trait responses to habitat hold across even larger scales, traits may prove critical in predicting the response of species assemblages to global change. Expand
The spatial and temporal distributions of arthropods in forest canopies: uniting disparate patterns with hypotheses for specialisation

It is proposed that species can be quantified along a generalist–specialist scale not only with respect to host specificity, but also other spatial and temporal distribution patterns, where specialisation is a function of the extent of activity across space and time for particular species. Expand
Biodiversity Monitoring and its Distribution in and Around Uranium Mining Area of Gogi, Gulbarga (Yadgir), Karnataka: A Case Study
Abstract Uranium is available in Gogi, Gulbarga District (now Yadgir), Karnataka. The area spreads over 30 km from the central point of the potential Uranium site to be mined for sustainable energyExpand
