Introduction
I am currently devoted to promote citizen science for the conservation of biodiversity, particularly threatened species. I am developing a biodiversity citizen science network in Brazil. I also act as the leader of the Brazilian Lepidoptera Research and Conservation Network (RedeLep), and I am also a member of the IUCN Butterfly Specialist Group.

This paper provides a preliminary inventory of the Lepidoptera from the Sempre Vivas National Park, a mountain area (1200 to 1400 m a.s.l.) that combines savannas (Cerrado) and open rocky montane fields (campos rupestres) in the north-central region of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Collections were made by active search using nets and Van Someren-Rydon bai...

Protected areas (PAs) are a widely recognized tool for biodiversity and ecosystem conservation. However, megadiverse countries struggle to manage, maintain, and expand PAs as they face mounting human pressures. The Brazilian Cerrado biome (a biodiversity hotspot) is experiencing increasing land-use changes paired with a loss of natural vegetation,...

Introduction: In animals, body size is correlated with many aspects of natural history, such as life span, abundance, dispersal capacity and diet breadth. However, contrasting trends have been reported for the relationship between body size and these ecological traits. Methods: Fruit-feeding butterflies were used to investigate whether body size is...

Introduction: Body size is correlated with many aspects of an animal species' natural history , such as life span, abundance, dispersal capacity and diet breadth. However, contrasting trends have been reported for the relationship between body size and these ecological traits. Methods: Butterfly species from fruit-feeding guilds were used to invest...

Elevation creates a variety of physical conditions in a relatively short distance, which makes mountains suitable for studying the effects of climate change on biodiversity. We investigated the importance of climate and vegetation for the distribution of butterflies from 800 to 1400 m elevation. We sampled butterflies, and woody and rosette plants...

As biodiversity loss rapidly increases through habitat degradation in the Amazon rainforest, the need to characterize and understand the species diversity becomes even more important. In this study we used empirical and published datasets to assess the diversity patterns and produce the first overview of the sphingid fauna in the Brazilian Amazon....

Monitoring programs constitute a suitable approach to evaluate habitat quality over time. Nonetheless, the success of such programs rests on data quality and adequacy of management practices. Long-term monitoring should be used to generate robust data that can be used as baseline information for effective implementation of mitigating actions. Altho...

Magnastigma julia foi avaliada como “Em perigo de extinção” (EN). Uma espécie com biologia desconhecida e citada apenas para as localidades tipo (Brasília, DF e Barbacena, MG), ambas no Cerrado. Estudamos esta espécie visando preencher lacunas de sua história natural e adicionar localidades de ocorrência para subsidiar ações de conservação.

The riodinid Rhetus belphegor (Westwood) (n. comb., previously in the genus Nirodia) is a critically endangered butterfly confined to the “campos rupestres”; a high-altitude rocky outcrop vegetation from southeast Brazil. The aim of this study is to unveil its biology and evaluate its systematic position. Based on museum data and public contributio...

A mudança climática global será uma das maiores causas de extinções nesse e no próximo século. Uma espécie que parece já sentir as consequências do aquecimento é a abelha Bombus bellicosus, restrita à região sul do Brasil, Uruguai e Argentina. Historicamente registrada no estado do Paraná, desde a década de 80 não foi mais observada na região. Para...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Insects dominate terrestrial biodiversity in terms of species numbers and biomass and are integral to ecosystem function. Yet there is a dearth of information on their conservation status and population trends - in particular at the global scale. Central to addressing biodiversity loss are appropriate policies, plans and actions at local, national...

We herein report new records of Parides burchellanus (Westwood, 1872) in southwestern Minas Gerais state, Brazil, in areas of the upper São Francisco and Araguari river systems, including the buffer zone of the Parque Nacional da Serra da Canastra. Until recently, the only known colonies of P. burchellanus were located in the municipalities of Brum...

Chico Mendes Institute of Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio) has been developing a national monitoring programme at its Protected Areas (PAs). Butterflies are one of the four indicators chosen to be monitored nationwide. RedeLep, the Brazilian "Butterfly Research and Conservation Network", has carried on field research tests to use frugivorous nymp...

In the last decades, there has been a considerable increase in literature concerning ecological studies employing bait traps to capture butterflies. The growing interest in this kind of studies has given rise to a demanding group of young students and researchers looking for information and standardized protocols. Due to such growing interest in ba...

As borboletas frugívoras, que se alimentam de frutos fermentados, são representadas pelas subfamílias Biblidinae, Charaxinae, Nymphalinae e Satyrinae, compreendendo de 50 a 75% da riqueza total dos Nymphalidae neotropicais. Por possuírem reprodução rápida, estreitas associações com habitats e plantas hospedeiras, as borboletas frugívoras são sensív...

1) Nirodia belphegor was found exclusively above 1000 m. Adults were found resting upside down on rocks or feeding on flowers. Females searched for host plants during the hottest hours of the day, depositing 1-2 eggs on leaves of Microstachys serrata (Euphorbiaceae). 2) The nonmyrmecophilous larvae underwent six instars. Larvae are covered with abu...
