The study, organized by the university and the Migratory Bird Center at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, estimates that between 4 million and 39 million neotropical
ticks are hitching rides behind the ears and around the eyes and necks of small, migratory songbirds each year.
Although many of the temperate-zone thrushes have been well studied, little is known about most Neotropical
thrushes (Londono 2005).
From the Neotropical
Region, 5 genera are recorded (Diceroprocta Stal, 1870; Tibicen Latreille, 1825; Cornuplura Davis, 1944; Cacama Distant, 1904; and Orialella Metcalf, 1952), of which only Orialella has been reported in Brazil (Metcalf 1963; Sanborn 2013).

echinococcosis, caused by polycystic larvae of the tapeworm Echinococcus vogeli and unicystic larvae of E.
lichen Dictyonema glabratum often grows in curly masses about the size of a fist.
migratory birds, for instance, have experienced declines of approximately 1% annually since 1967, and one possible reason for these declines is a diminishing food source.
The topics include the large-scale influence of climate on sexually selected traits, the macroecology of harvestman mating systems, insights from a clade of neotropical
fishes on underestimating the role of female preference and sexual conflict in the evolution of alternative reproductive techniques (ART) in fishes, lessons from neotropical
songbirds on sexual selection and the evolution of vocal mating signals, a case study from a neotropical
lek-breeding bird showing impacts of mating behavior on plant-animal seed dispersal mutualisms, and sexual selection in neotropical
The ANA region (ANA; Austral and Neotropical
America, from Mexico to Argentina, including Caribbean countries) (Rodriguez et al.
The study also looked at a complicated set of relationships between tigrinas and two other species of Neotropical
singing mice (Scotinomys) are diurnal, insectivorous rodents distributed throughout the highlands of Central America.
hey studied neotropical
termites of the species Neocapritermes taracua.
While studying the Neotropical
species of Stenogrammitis I found a new species and a new hybrid that deserve recognition, which I describe as follow.
