Diversity patterns and chronobiology of hawkmoths (Lepidoptera, Sphingidae) in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest
It is found that the Brazilian Amazon may harbor more than 80% of the hawkmoth species that occur in Brazil and more than half of the species recorded in South America, illustrating the importance of Protected Areas in species maintenance. Expand
Synchronous phenology of hawkmoths (Sphingidae) and Inga species (Fabaceae–Mimosoideae): implications for the restoration of the Atlantic forest of northeastern Brazil
The synchrony of the activity period of these animals in adult phase with certain nectar sources, and the relationship between morphological parameters of hawkmoths and Inga flowers suggest a narrow pollination mutualistic relationship at the study site. Expand

Long-term stability of the hawkmoth fauna (Lepidoptera, Sphingidae) in a protected area of Brazilian Atlantic Rain Forest
Hawkmoths are an important component of tropical ecosystems, with significant roles as herbivores and pollinators. These moths can be used as indicators in biodiversity assessments because they canExpand
The long and the short of it: a global analysis of hawkmoth pollination niches and interaction networks.
It is shown that pollinator proboscis length is a key niche axis for plants and can account for patterns of evolution in functional traits such as floral tube length and nectar volume, while pollinator niche breadth decreases according to the tube length of flowers. Expand
