These can be represented by many taxa, such as Collembola
, Acari, Hymenoptera, Coleoptera, Lepidoptera, Thysanoptera, Diptera, Hemiptera, and Psocoptera (Bregonci et al., 2010).
(2014) Biodiversidad de Collembola
(Hexapoda: Entognatha) en Mexico.
Analysis of rich materials of Collembola
from GSMNP revealed a new species of Neanurini.
(1999) showed that sludge contaminated by heavy metals did not affect the total abundance of the Collembola
order, but exerted effects on the species, because according to these authors, some species of this group exhibit different behavior relating to a few elements, and some tolerate soils contaminated by heavy metals such as Zn, Cu, Cd, Ni, Cr and Pb, while others show no tolerance levels.
from the canopy of a Mexican tropical deciduous forest.
grandiflora fueron Acari (837), Collembola
(251), y Polyxenida (71), y en E.
The order Hymenoptera was the most abundant throughout the study period (4,789 individuals), followed by Coleoptera (2,914), Diptera (1,985) and Collembola
More than 11,000 invertebrates were captured in pitfalls, excluding Collembola
and known introduced species.
e Aranae foram coletados em maior quantidade na primavera, reduzindo significativamente nas demais estacoes.
Arthropoda accounted for 91% of prey items and included 7 classes (Arachnida, Chilopoda, Collembola
, Copepoda, Diplopoda, Insecta, and Malacostraca [Amphipods and Isopods]).
communities were stratified in tropical rainforests, but diversity did not vary between the ground and canopy (Rogers & Kitching 1998).
Another highlight may be given to the microfauna group Collembola
, being present in all vegetation formations, mainly during the dry period.
The groups of captured individuals were classified in the following taxonomic levels: Diplopoda (class); Acari (Subclass); Araneae, Blattodea, Coleoptera, Collembola
, Diptera, Hemiptera, Hymenoptera, Isoptera, Orthoptera, Pseudoscorpiones, Scorpiones, Solifugae (order); Formicidae (family) and the larvae of Coleoptera, Diptera and Lepidoptera (morphospecies).
Entre los insectos colectados, se logro criar en laboratorio una especie del orden Collembola
sp.), la cual sirvio como alimento (solo durante una o dos ocasiones) para mantener a las aranas, esto con objeto de que las aranas estuvieran en iguales condiciones de alimentacion antes de su primer encuentro con las presas experimentales.
Some of them were reported to be Collembola
(springtails), Acarina (mites) from the Glycyphagidae family, and Diptera pupae of the Phoridae family.
