Described from Southern US (Louisiana, Texas; Birge, 1910) and widespread in Neotropics
(Hollwedel et al.
In addition, world authorities have extensively studied the material gathered, making it the best understood family in the Neotropics
(Gauld et al.
As the Millenium Ecosystem Assessment project showed (MEA 2003) food, fibre, pharmaceuticals, climate regulation, water purification--all these services are provided by a complex network of species, populations, communities and ecosystems in the neotropics
Mammals of the Neotropics
, Volume 1: The Northern Neotropics
2008) argue that the overall diversity of aquatic plants is highest in Neotropics
According to Mound (2002), the majority of thrips studies in the neotropics
have been limited to insecticide trials or taxonomic studies.
The aim of this work is to show the distribution of the free-living freshwater Cyclopoida group and its diversity in the neotropics
, including South America, Central America and the Caribbean.
The theme of this year's volume is human-animal interaction and human exceptionalism, with six essays on such aspects as humans and animals in northern regions, primate positional behavior development and evolution, and the monkeying of the Americas: primate biogeography in the Neotropics
This feeding diversification observed in the Neotropics
is believed to have occurred during the extinction of large mammals in the late Pleistocene (Halffter, 1991; Larsen, Lopera, & Forsyth, 2006).
2001): Afrotropics, Palearctic, Indomalaya, Australasia, Oceania, Nearctic, and Neotropics
It arose as an initiative of SAREM but has had research on the mammals of the Neotropics
as a focus since its inception, as appropriately reflected in its name.
Approximately 400 species are described for the Neotropics
, among which is observed a pronounced polymorphism and very often omnivory.
