Abstract:
Cecropia petioles are an ideal habitat for beetle development because the plants are found in various habitats and shed their petioles almost daily. This study was done in order to determine the effects of elevation on the number of bark beetles and species richness found in Cecropia petioles. Petioles were collected from five elevations in Monteverde, Costa Rica from three life zones on the Pacific slope; beetle number and species richness was compared. Elevation was positively correlated with number of beetles and species richness. Also, the larger the petioles had the most beetles and higher species richness. Three distinct species were found: Scolytoides atratus, Scolytoides caudatus and Scolytoides acuminatus. These results suggest a difference in the range of the different species and an intricate system of interaction between the species.
Abstract:
Los peciolos de Cecropia son un hábitat ideal para el desarrollo de los escarabajos ya que estos se encuentran en diversos hábitats y botan los peciolos diariamente. Este estudio se realizó para determinar el efecto de la elevación en el número y especies de escarabajos de la corteza encontrados en los peciolos de Cecropia. Los peciolos fueron colectados en cinco elevaciones diferentes en Monteverde, Costa Rica en tres zonas de vida en la vertiente del Pacífico; se comparó el número de escarabajos y la riqueza de especies. La elevación se correlaciona positivamente con el número de escarabajos y la riqueza de especies. Además, entre más largos son los peciolos mayor es el número de escarabajos y la riqueza de especies. Se encontraron tres especies diferentes: Scolytoides atratus, Scolytoides caudatus y Scolytoides acuminatus. Estos resultados sugieren una diferencia en el rango de las diferentes especies y un sistema intrínseco de interacciones entre especies.
