Book Description Table of Contents Sample Pages Chapters

Almost one-fourth of the families presently known worldwide in the Arachnida and one- fifth in the Myriapoda appear to be represented in Amazonia. However, their significance is generally underestimated. For example, oribatid mites are important secondary decomposers of organic matter. They represent up to 50% of soil arthropod fauna in the litter and upper soil layers of Central Amazonian forest. Yet they are largely neglected in eco-entomological studies due to the enormous labour required for numerical counts and identifications. Nevertheless, Arachnida and Myriapoda still represent up to 30% of the soil arthropods in upland and inundation forests of Central Amazonia when Acari are disregarded. This book is a valuable manual for anyone interested in Neotropical representatives of these major arthropod groups.
