Main predictors of periphyton species richness depend on adherence strategy and cell size
Periphytic algae are important components of aquatic ecosystems. However, the factors driving periphyton species richness variation remain largely unexplored. Here, we used data from a subtropical floodplain (Upper Paraná ...
Temporal variation in richness and composition of recruits in a diverse cnidarian assemblage of subtropical Brazil
(Elsevier B.V.Amsterdam, 2014-11)
Many studies have shown that the processes of colonization of new marine substrata, from settlement to recruitment, can leave long and lasting signals on the richness, composition and general structure of natural epifaunal ...
Mammal and butterfly species richness in Chile: taxonomic covariation and history
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2009)
Changes in Species Richness and Composition of Tiger Moths (Lepidoptera: Erebidae: Arctiinae) among Three Neotropical Ecoregions
(Public Library of Science, 2016-09)
Paraná, Yungas and Chaco Serrano ecoregions are among the most species-richterrestrial habitats at higher latitude. However, the information for tiger moths, one of the most speciose group of moths, is unknown in these ...
Relationship between climate and geographical variation of local woody species richness within the Mediterranean-type region of Chile
Abstract Background Latitudinal and altitudinal patterns of plant species richness have frequently been related to different climate variables such as precipitation, temperature ...
Changes in Ant Species Richness and Composition During Plant Secondary Succession in Puerto Rico
(Caribbean Journal of Science, Vol. 43, No. 2, 244-253, 2007, 2014)
Canopy cover as the key factor for occurrence and species richness of subtropical stream green algae (Chlorophyta)
Understanding how local and regional environmental factors influence species richness remains a key issue in ecology. Green algae (Chlorophyta) are a diverse and widely occurring group, which may be a good model for studying ...
Tadpole community structure in lentic and lotic habitats: Richness and diversity in the Atlantic Rainforest lowland
The analysis of species richness and community composition provides basic information to understand the structure of species assemblages. Here, we compared species richness and composition, compositional similarity and ...
