Abstract: Abstract:The aim of this paper was to describe the seasonal patterns of Chrysomelidae and of its most abundant species at eight sites in different geomorphological and floristic regions in the state of Paraná, southern Brazil. Samples with Malaise traps, from August 1986 to July 1988 were performed. The Chrysomelidae showed seasonal patterns with the highest abundance in the spring and/or summer at all sites, but with variations in the months of highest captures. Photoperiod was the variable that most influenc… Show more

“… Chrysomelidae is the major component of tropical herbivore guilds and it can be easily collected ( Basset et al 1996 , Farrell and Erwin 1988 , Wagner 2000 ). Linzmeier and Ribeiro-Costa (2013) noted a similar trend of the abundance pattern of Chrysomelidae and Coleoptera as a whole when using a Malaise trap. They suggested that this result is probably related to the dominance of herbivorous families sampled.…”

“…Similarly, seasonal variations, monthly composition and similarity patterns in leaf beetles reflect different ecological and biological strategies of each species, since reproduction and adult feeding phases may be different at certain times of the year. In Chrysomelidae, this has been attributed to abiotic variation during seasons, such the photoperiod, temperature, relative humidity, and to the quality and availability of host plants (Linzmeier and Ribeiro-Costa 2008, 2013). Also, seasonal and monthly patterns could reflect an existing sequence between Chrysomelidae and other phytophagous species to avoid competition and allow optimum resource exploitation (Pérez-Barroeta and Gurrea-Sanz 1994).…”

“…Information on the seasonality, dominance and frequency of leaf beetles remains insufficient due to scarcity of the studies conducted (Farrell & Erwin 1988;Takizawa 1994;Basset & Samuelson 1996;Novotný et al 1999;Wagner 1999;Wasowska 2006;Linzmeier et al 2006;Linzmeier & Ribeiro-Costa 2013). Therefore, the aims of this study were to investigate as follows: (i) to determine dominance structure and frequency values of collected leaf beetles in the Kovada Lake and Kızıldag National Parks, (ii) to determine how the pattern of adult leaf beetle species composition changes with season.…”
