About This Project

The harvestmen diversity in many places of the Atlantic Forest - one of the 25 biodiversity hotspots in the world- is little known. Inventorying species from a particular location is the first step in mapping conservation strategies. It is important to know the harvestmen diversity, considering that these organisms are excellent environmental indicators, they have high rates of endemism in the Atlantic Forest and are good models for biogeographical and behavioral studies
