Forest Management Intensity Affects Aquatic Communities in Artificial Tree Holes
TLDR
It is found that forest management had strong effects on communities in artificial tree holes in both regions and across the season, and that artificial tree-hole analogues represent a useful experimental alternative to test effects of changes in forest management on natural communities. Expand
Aspects of the reproductive ecology of Trachycephalus cunauaru (Anura: Hylidae) in the southern Amazon
TLDR
It is determined that artificial sites and digital camera traps are a satisfactory alternative for behavioral observations of T. cunauaru and possibly for other species with a similar habit. Expand
Direct and indirect effects of forest management on tree-hole inhabiting aquatic organisms and their functional traits.
TLDR
It is found that forest management in terms of harvesting intensity and the proportion of non-natural tree species (species not part of the natural vegetation at the sites) negatively affected tree-hole abundance andFunctional diversity and trait composition of insect communities similarly responded to changes in management-related variables. Expand
Sampling Considerations for Adult and Immature Culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae).
TLDR
The need to clearly define research goals to select appropriate sampling methods is emphasized, including not just the choice of sampling device, but also choice of attractant, site, number of traps per site, the duration and frequency of sampling, and the number of Traps per unit area. Expand
A three year study of the phenology of insect larvae (Coleoptera, Diptera) in water-filled tree holes in the canopy of a beech tree

TLDR
The case study on the phenology of insect larvae in two holes in a beech tree (lower and upper canopy) located in southern Germany over a period of three years indicates that unpredictable drying out of tree holes are more important drivers of tree hole community dynamics than changes in water temperature. Expand
Transcriptome profiling with focus on potential key genes for wing development and evolution in Megaloprepus caerulatus, the damselfly species with the world's largest wings
TLDR
A transcriptome profiling of M. caerulatus using RNA-Seq and a comparison with two other species revealed larva-specific genes and a conserved ‘core’ set of over 8,000 genes forming orthologous clusters with Ischnura elegans and Ladona fulva. Expand
Vertical stratification of invertebrate assemblages in water-filled treeholes of a temperate deciduous forest
Abstract Water-filled treeholes provide temporal habitats and resources to detritus-based aquatic organisms in the aboveground forest strata. Treeholes are found at different vertical positions, andExpand
Effects of management on aquatic tree-hole communities in temperate forests are mediated by detritus amount and water chemistry.
TLDR
It is found that increasing ForMI indeed significantly reduced arthropod abundance and richness in water-filled tree holes and the most important indirect effects of management intensity on tree hole community structure were the reduced amounts of detritus for the tree hole inhabiting organisms and changed water chemistry at the tree holes scale, both of which seem to act as a habitat filter. Expand
Monitoring cryptic amphibians and reptiles in a Florida state park
TLDR
Winter is identified as the optimal time in this area to monitor populations for conducting annual assessments and the combined observation and indexing approach could provide managers or researchers with an economical means to quantitatively index population trends for multiple cryptic herpetofauna species simultaneously. Expand
Land management impacts on tree hole invertebrate communities in a Neotropical rainforest
TLDR
Results indicate different colonization ability across phytotelmata specialists and warn of larger community shifts and potential public health hazards with continued and intensified forest fragmentation and degradation. Expand

SummaryExperimental studies support four main conclusions about the effects of the chemical composition of stemflow on the growth, development, and survivorship of larvae of the tree hole mosquitoExpand
NUTRIENT DYNAMICS, BACTERIAL POPULATIONS, AND MOSQUITO PRODUCTIVITY IN TREE HOLE ECOSYSTEMS AND MICROCOSMS'
TLDR
It is concluded that disturbance by a physical factor, stemflow, has a major influence on the interactions of nutrient dynamics, bacterial populations, and mosquito productivity in temperate tree-hole ecosystems. Expand
Predation by odonates depresses mosquito abundance in water-filled tree holes in Panama
TLDR
Odonates are keystone species in tree holes on Barro Colorado Island, Panama, where they are the most common large predators, and size-selective predation by the odonates is a likely explanation for this result. Expand
Consequences of Larval Ecology for Territoriality and Reproductive Success of a Neotropical Damselfly
TLDR
Results from a field experiment suggest that both mate acquisition and procurement of superior larval habitats have been selective pressures in the evolution of male territory choice. Expand

Abstract. 1. Water‐filled tree holes in a lowland forest in Panama harbour an assemblage of large predators consisting of the larvae of five common species of Odonata, the mosquito ToxorhynchitesExpand
The population ecology of Megaloprepus coerulatus and its effect on species assemblages in water-filled tree holes
TLDR
The goal of the long-term research on tropical odonates is to bridge the gap between community ecologists infer process from pattern, whereas behavioural ecologists usually ignore the consequences of other species on individual fitness. Expand
The immature stages of Dasyhelea dufouri Laboulbene (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) in water‐filled tree‐holes
TLDR
The results of these studies are used to construct the life-history of the ceratopogonid midge, Dasyhelea dufouri, and indicate temporal and spatial variation in the occurrence of its larvae. Expand
Microhabitat size distribution affects local difference in community structure: Metazoan communities in treeholes
  • T. Sota

  • 2007
TLDR
There are general correlates between community structure within individual treeholes (infracommunity structure) and treehole capacity (microhabitat size) and this study indicated that microhabitats-size distribution is potentially a significant constraint of local community structure. Expand
Habitat stability and the larval mosquito community in treeholes and other containers on a temperate Island
TLDR
The larval mosquito community, which lacked major predators, possessed the following features that may facilitate the coexistence of many species: niche segregation amongst species in terms of their selection of container types; an aggregated distribution of the individual species among containers of the same type; and high intraspecific mean crowding in the dominant species in each type of container.
