The Cerambycid Fauna of the Tropical Dry Forest of “El Aguacero,” Chiapas, México (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)

  title={The Cerambycid Fauna of the Tropical Dry Forest of “El Aguacero,” Chiapas, M{\'e}xico (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)},
  author={Victor H Toledo and Felipe A. Noguera and John A. Chemsak and Frank T. Hovore and Edmund F. Giesbert},
Abstract The results of a study on the fauna of Cerambycidae of the tropical dry forest of “El Aguacero,” Chiapas, Mexico are presented. Data were obtained during a year of monthly collections and records obtained during sporadic collections carried out mainly during the rainy season. A total of 203 species, representing 119 genera, 42 tribes and four subfamilies were recorded. Seventy-nine species were recorded for the first time for the state of Chiapas. The subfamilies with the greater… 
A Faunal Study of Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) from One Region with Tropical Dry Forest in México: San Buenaventura, Jalisco
The fauna was more similar to the fauna of Chamela, Jalisco than to Sierra de Huautla, Morelos or El Aguacero, Chiapas and consists of 37% species endemic to México.
A faunal study of Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) from one region with tropical dry forest in Mexico: Sierra de San Javier, Sonora
Abstract We present the results of a faunal study of cerambycids from San Javier, Sonora, a locality in México with tropical dry forest. The study was carried out between November, 2003 and October,
Diversity of the Family Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) of the Tropical Dry Forest of Mexico, I. Sierra de Huautla, Morelos
The cerambycid fauna of the tropical dry forest of the Sierra of Huautla, Morelos, Mexico, is described, and consists of 65% species endemic to Mexico, with the highest values recorded in the rainy season and lowest values in the dry season.
Species Richness and Abundance of Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) in Huatulco, Oaxaca, Mexico; Relationships with Phenological Changes in the Tropical Dry Forest
It is proposed that the seemingly contradictory relationships between seasonal richness patterns of Cerambycidae and the greening/senescence of vegetation (EVI) may be explained by the seasonal availability of dead organic matter, flowers, or leafy vegetation that may be synchronized with the behavior of different ceram bycid species.
Diversity of the longhorned beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) from Cuatro Ciénegas Basin, Coahuila, Mexico
A first checklist of Cerambycidae from seven localities of Cuatro Ciénegas Basin shows the paucity of knowledge of insects in the deserts of Mexico, with 37 species, from which 13 are new records for the state of Coahuila and three species represent new record for Mexico.
Faunistic Composition of Cleridae (Coleoptera) in El Limón de Cuauchichinola, Morelos, Mexico
The results provide evidence that the tropical dry forest of the Sierra de Huautla Biosphere Reserve is an ecosystem rich in species, including new records for Morelos and five for the country.
New host records of Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) from central Mexico
This study reports new records of larval hosts of longhorn beetles in the tropical dry forest of San Andres de la Cal, Morelos, Mexico, and finds previously unreported hosts, and for nine species, the hosts are the first recorded in the literature.
Ethnoentomological and Distributional Notes on Cerambycidae and Other Coleoptera of Guerrero and Puebla, Mexico
Ethnoentomological notes on Nahuatl and Mixtec language terms as they are applied to Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) and distributional records for species collected during three projects carried out in the states of Guerrero and Puebla, Mexico are presented.
Xylophagous Beetles (Coleoptera: Buprestidae and Cerambycidae) from Ficus carica L. (Moraceae) in Morelos, Mexico
Xylophagous buprestid and cerambycid beetles associated with common fig or “higuera”, Ficus carica L. (Moraceae), were studied in small orchards from Morelos, Mexico.
Estimation of the species richness of hyperdiverse beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in an area of Atlantic Forest, Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil
This work showed that faunistic inventories of hyperdiverse groups, with only one year of collection and a single sampling methodology may underestimate the species richness of a region, and larger time series associated with different collection methods are essential for a more accurate survey of biodiversity in the Atlantic Forest.


Phenology of canopy trees of a tropical deciduous forest in México.
Our study focuses on a site of very low rainfall but exceptionally high diversity of woody plants, and describes events at the ecosystem, community, and population levels. We attempt to lead to some
The Current State of Biological Diversity
Biological diversity must be treated more seriously as a global resource, to be indexed, used, and above all, preserved. Three circumstances conspire to give this matter an unprecedented urgency.
