How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Por vez primera se presenta al mundo científico y a todas las personas con inquietudes hacia el conocimiento de la valiosa biodiversidad insular los ciclos de vida completos de los Ropalóceros de Canarias, nuestras queridas mariposas diurnas, con una puesta en valor de su clasificación taxonómica y un tratamiento pormenorizado de los detalles morfo...
Spiders are a highly diversified group of arthropods and play an important role in terrestrial ecosystems as ubiquitous predators, which makes them a suitable group to test a variety of eco-evolutionary hypotheses. For this purpose, knowledge of a diverse range of species traits is required. Until now, data on spider traits have been scattered acro...
The arthropod fauna associated with seven endemic dendroid Euphorbia was sampled and studied in the Canary and Madeira archipelagos. The stem-diameter of the plants was considered, along with their genetic affinity, habitat and number of localities and islands where present. The arthropod assemblages and richness found on each Euphorbia species wer...
A commented checklist of the tachinid species inhabiting the Canary Islands (Spain) is provided, with special emphasis on hosts species and floral resources. Nine new local records are provided and Cylindromyia rufipes is reported for the first time for the Canary Islands, thus increasing the species number to 52. Zoogeographic analysis of the area...
Background: There is an increasing demand for databases including species trait information for biodiversity and community ecology studies. The existence of trait databases is useful for comparative studies within taxa or geographical regions, but there is low availability of databases for certain organisms. Here we present an open access function...
New chorological data for the species belonging to the tribe Gonocerini (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Coreidae) in the Canary Islands are given. Plinachtus imitator (Reuter, 1891) is reported for the first time for the islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria, thus expanding its known distribution. Interaction with plant species where specimens have been co...
Several times, the real distribution of the arthropod species of the Canary Islands is underestimated and this lack of information may obstruct the ecosystems management. In this context, in order to know the real biodiversity of protected areas, more chorological studies are needed to get closer to the actual distribution of the canarian entomofauna.
