• Tourism activity affects the cave's physical environment in several ways, such as damaging speleothems, altering the cave structure for ease of access, and the shifting of cave microclimate. Nevertheless, it is less clear how the pressure of touristic activities affects the cave fauna. • This study aimed to investigate the effects from tourism ac...

Several studies have tried to elucidate the main environmental features driving invertebrate community structure in cave environments. They found that many factors influence the community structure, but rarely focused on how substrate types and heterogeneity might shape these communities. Therefore, the objective of this study was to assess which s...

The Chupacabras is an animal that was recently added to the pages of cryptozoology as part of a suburban legend. It´s origin dates from 1995 in the rural regions of Puerto Rico. Impelled by the sensationalist media, the legend extended all the way to the United States and then to the rest of America. However, there are some anecdotal records of sev...

We linked primary dispersal by spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi) and howler monkeys (Alouatta pigra) to post-dispersal seed fate by studying the effects of dung type and defecation pattern on secondary seed dispersal by dung beetles. First, we described the defecation patterns for both primate species. Howler monkeys generally defecated in groups (...

Biological diversity conservation within natural reserves has been prioritized, but conservation efforts outside protected areas (where most human activities take place) have been very little considered. In this scenario, an alternative agricultural practice that may reduce the impacts of fragmentation in outer landscapes is a perforation process,...

Experimental work has established that vertebrates can have a large impact on the abundance of arthropods in temperate forest and grasslands, as well as on tropical islands. The importance of vertebrate insectivory has only rarely been evaluated for main- land tropical ecosystems. In this study, we used exclosures to measure the impact of birds on...

Los Passalidae, por varias razones, son buenos organismos indicadores de endemismo. Encontramos 66 especies de Passalidae en 32 bosques nubosos de Guatemala. Para priorizar la conservación de estos bosques, establecimos un método que evalúa riqueza de especies, endemismo y similitud entre ensambles de pasálidos y el grado de protección de los bosqu...

The apparent rarity (four specimens known) of Deltochilum valgum acropyge Bates is due to a collecting artifact. Captures of 10 adult specimens in the Mayan Biosphere Reserve, Peten, Guatemala, in traps baited with live millipedes (Diplopoda: Spirobolida), suggest that it is a specialist in millipede predation, of nocturnal habits and has wide geog...
