The paper showing the results and first analyses of the survey that Cristina Araújo (see People) did for her PhD along an altitudinal gradient at Itatiaia National Park has been just published. Itatia (Río de Janeiro, Brazil) is part of Serra da Mantiqueira, and was the first National Park declared in Brazil. These preliminary analyses provide highly valuable information, as this is one of the very few studies on the responses of dung beetles to elevational gradients in the Neotropics.
