Abstract: ABSTRACT. Brazilian fauna of drosophilids has been researched in various ecosystems, but those in mangrove forests remain overlooked in Brazil and elsewhere. The present study attempts to characterise the assemblages of drosophilids of this environment, based on 28 collections taken in three mangrove areas in Santa Catarina Island, southern Brazil. The three mangroves surveyed were different in their surroundings, which varied from highly urbanised areas to conservation areas with natural vegetation. Overall, … Show more

“…Among the Neotropical indigenous species, the subgroup willistoni showed differences of more than 70% between areas (Table 3) Regarding the ecological indexes, PMA in 2006 (H' = 2.601) and the autumn in 2006 in both areas (PMA: H' = 2.941; FBL: H' = 2.626) had higher diversity than already detected, but in general, the diversity indexes (H') were mostly similar (but sometimes higher than) to those found in other works (Silva et al, 2005a;Tidon, 2006;Toni et al, 2007;Gottschalk et al, 2007;Bizzo et al, 2010;Schmitz et al, 2010;Poppe et al, 2012). No seasonal pattern was detected in both areas.…”

“…Approximately 80% of the richness of the drosophilid assemblage analysed was formed by rare species, which are represented by those whose frequency is below 1%. This pattern is regularly observed for Neotropical arthropods (Novotny & Basset, 2000; Coddington et al ., 2009), and it has been described in studies about drosophilids from the Atlantic Forest (Schmitz et al ., 2010, Cavasini et al ., 2014) and other biomes, such as the Amazon Forest (Acurio et al , 2010), the Cerrado (Roque et al ., 2013) and the Caatinga (Oliveira et al ., 2016). From the ecological and evolutionary standpoints, rare species are those that have become more specialized to a few environments (Dobzhansky & Pavan, 1950).…”

“…[1922]), the majority of studies of community assemblage have been conducted in the tropics (e.g. [23, 24]). In disturbed areas of the tropics, exotic species dominate and displace native species [17, 2326], a pattern also seen in temperate zones [27].…”
