Temporal variation in the spider assemblage (Arachnida, Araneae) in canopies of Callisthene fasciculata (Vochysiaceae) in the Brazilian Pantanal biome

Abstract: ABSTRACT. Spiders are generalist predators and present a high diversity of capturing and foraging, as well as considerable species richness in tropical habitats. Although, generally, not presenting specifi c relations to the host plant, they can be infl uenced by its phenology, structure and resource availability. So, this study analyzed temporal variation on the structure and composition of Araneae assemblage in Callisthene fasciculata (Spr.) Mart. (Vochysiaceae) canopies, in an area of monodominant vegetatio… Show more

“…According to Lessard-Therrien et al (2018), the structure and ecological conditions of habitats are fundamental for determining the occurrence of spiders, since, for the most part, they are generalist predators that use a wide variety of prey, even if prey populations are small (Sunderland & Samu 2003). The dominance of hunting spiders found in this study is common in studies investigating the composition and structure of spider assemblages (Castilho et al 2005, Battirola et al 2004, Sena et al 2010, Anjos et al 2017, Yamazaki et al 2017.…”

“…The absence of epiphytes, bird nests and colonies of social insects (e.g. ants, bees and termites) was also observed, according to the criteria proposed by Adis et al (1998), and the methodological procedures of Battirola et al (2004), and Yamazaki et al (2016Yamazaki et al ( , 2017. The entire diameter at the base of the trees was surrounded by nylon funnels (area of 1 m 2 each) distributed according to the reach and architecture of the canopy, totaling 120 m 2 of sample area (10 m² per sampled tree).…”

“…As discussed by Yamazaki et al (2016Yamazaki et al ( , 2017, C. fasciculata is a tree that reaches between four and 15 m in height and has a dark, thick and very rough bark (Pott & Pott 1994). The flowering period occurs between September and October, together with the dispersion of seeds generated in the previous year (Custódio et al 2014).…”

“…The structure of vegetation in monodominant and mixed-species habitats associated with seasonal flooding makes both, fauna and flora, present specific adaptations which allow for their survival in this type of habitat (Adis et al, 2001;Arieira & Nunes-da-Cunha, 2006;Battirola et al, 2007Battirola et al, , 2009Battirola et al, , 2017aRebellato et al, 2013;Tissiani et al, 2015). In the northern Pantanal region of Mato Grosso, specific strategies were recorded for different species of arthropods, including ants, involving vertical displacement to higher habitats such as tree trunks and canopies, horizontal displacement along the flood line (Adis et al, 2001;Wantzen et al 2016), and temporary displacement between terrestrial habitats (Meurer et al, 2015;Yamazaki et al, 2015Yamazaki et al, , 2016Yamazaki et al, , 2017.…”
