Plant architectural traits influence residence time of a specialist jumping spider
The patch residence time of spiders has long been attributed to prey availability. We provide empirical evidence that plant architecture determines the residence time of a bromeliad-living spider. The residence time of ...
Bromeliad architectural complexity and vertical distribution predict spider abundance and richness
Habitat complexity is a main predictor of the distribution of arthropods on vegetation. However, it remains poorly known whether plant architecture and fine-scale spatial distribution affect the species richness and ...
Paclobutrazol for Height Control of Petunias
(Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias, INIA, 2008)
Fine-scale microhabitat selection in a bromeliad-dwelling jumping spider (Salticidae)
Although a wide variety of arthropods specialize on a specific host plant, little is known about the evolution of host-plant specialization in spiders. In several regions of South America, the Neotropical jumping spider ...
Software for interpolation of vegetative growth of yerba mate plants in 3D.
(Pesquisa Agropecuária Brasileira, Brasília, v.45, n.3, p.244-251, mar. 2010, 2011)
Architectural patterns of eight Cecropia (Cecropiaceae) species of Brazil
(Urban & Fischer VerlagJenaAlemanha, 2001)
Strong selection on mandible and nest features in a carpenter bee that nests in two sympatric host plants
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2014)
Host plants are used by herbivorous insects as feeding or nesting resources. In wood-boring insects, host plants features may impose selective forces leading to phenotypic differentiation on traits related to nest construction. ...
Variations in the architecture and histochemistry of the gelatinous fibers in Eriosema (DC.) Desv. (Leguminosae) species from the Brazilian Cerrado
G-fibers have been widely studied in tension wood, but few studies are available on aerial and underground organs of shrub and subshrub, specially comparing those organs of the same plant. The goal of this study is to ...
Oviposition site selection by the bromeliad-dweller harvestman Bourguyia hamata (Arachnida : Opiliones)
(SPRINGER TOKYO, 2008)
Bourguyia hamata females oviposit almost exclusively inside the rosette formed by the curled leaves of the epiphytic bromeliad Aechmea nudicaulis. We investigated whether the architecture of the individual bromeliads ...
