Dispersal of euglossine bees between fragments of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest

  • Athayde Tonhasca Jr. (a1), Gilberto S. Albuquerque (a1) and Jacquelyn L. Blackmer (a1) (a2)
Abstract

The Brazilian Atlantic Forest is one of the world's ‘hot spots’ for conservation because of its high level of endemism and number of endangered species (Myers et al. 2000). After centuries of deforestation, most of the remaining Atlantic Forest is scattered as small fragments on private land (Fonseca 1985, Jorge & Garcia 1997). Pollination could be impaired in these fragments because isolation often negatively influences the dispersal of insects, the most important pollinating agents in the tropics.
