The structure of the Phlebotomine sand fly community from the Venezuelan Andes was studied using null-model tests. The analyses, at the living zones and altitudes scales, revealed C-scores larger than those expected by random, independently of the collection technique (P < 0.05). These results imply that sand fly species are non-aggregated at both scales. Random results for the variance of C-score and for the favored states hypothesis suggest that sand fly species belong to an unique guild. The… CONTINUE READING
