原始语种摘要: Preliminary observations suggested that the Neotropical harvestman Jussara sp. (Sclerosomatidae, Eupnoi) had a patchy distribution and a marked seasonality, comparable to species in the Northern hemisphere. This would be an unusual pattern, since conditions of temperature and humidity are very different between tropical and temperate environments. Using a mark-recapture method, we investigated the phenology, habitat use and individual movement of Jussara sp. in a tropical rainforest in southern Brazil. We found a very marked seasonality in the population of adults, with a positive correlation between temperature, humidity and number of adults found. Adults were found only in the wet and warm months and significantly preferred the plant Psycothria suterella (Rubiaceae) as a resting...
