Numbers of described families, genera, and species (as well as estimations of existing species) are given for all taxa which represent the Arachnida and Myriapoda world-wide and in Amazonia. 
Arthropods (Terrestrial), Amazonian
Estimation of the biodiversity in terrestrial arthropod taxa of the “bioregion” Amazonia depends on solid data of species, collected from different biotopes and habitats, that include comparativeExpand
On a new species of Cryptocellus from the brazilian Amazon (Arachnida, Ricinulei)
Cryptocellus abaporu sp. n. is described based on material of both sexes from JiParana, southwest Rondonia, Brazil, which represents the southernmost record of the genus. The new species appears toExpand
A new species of Cryptocellus (Arachnida, Ricinulei) from Oriental Amazonia
TLDR
The new species appears to be similar to C. peckorum Platnick & Shadab, 1977 by the moderately expanded metatarsus III, bearing a metatarsal process with a flattened tip. Expand
Vertical and time distribution of Pseudoscorpiones (Arthropoda: Arachnida) in a floodplain forest in the Brazilian Pantanal
TLDR
The analyses did not show any temporal variation as to abundance or richness of Pseudoscorpiones in each evaluated habitat; however, the analysis showed that the edaphic environment (soil + termite nests, tree trunks and tree canopies are distinct habitats in relation to the composition of the assemblage. Expand
Abundance and phenology of Schizomida (Arachnida) from a secondary upland forest in Central Amazonia
TLDR
The lack of a distinct reproductive period and the presence of juveniles (in particular the first nymphal instar) and adults (both sexes) throughout the year indicate a plurivoltine mode of life. Expand
Myriapods (Myriapoda). Chapter 7.2
TLDR
The introduction of some species into Europe could have begun already in historical times with an increase in trade between ancient Greeks and Romans with cities in the Near East and North Africa, and with the trade between Europe and some tropical countries, especially after the discoveries of the Americas and Australia. Expand
Myriapod (Arthropoda, Myriapoda) diversity and distribution in a floodplain forest of the Brazilian Pantanal
TLDR
The survival strategies observed in Diplopoda and Chilopoda demonstrate the adaptation of these species to the seasonal floods of this ecosystem. Expand
CONTRIBUTION TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE ARACHNIDS IN THE YUCATAN PENINSULA, MEXICO (EXCLUDING ARANAE AND ACARI)
The Chelicerata are the second group of arthropods with the highest diversity after insects and they can inhabit almost all types of environments. The most current classification recognizes 11 ordersExpand
Population dynamics and phenology of the wall crab spider Selenops cocheleti Simon, 1880 (Araneae: Selenopidae) in Southeastern Brazil
TLDR
New insights are provided into the life-history of S. cocheleti and how climatic variables and prey abundance influence the population abundance of the different age classes and adult sexes. Expand
Myriapods (Arthropoda, Myriapoda) in the Pantanal of Poconé, Mato Grosso, Brazil
The Brazilian Pantanal biome is one of the largest and most important floodplains in the world by virtue of its biodiversity and indispensable ecological services on local, regional, and globalExpand
