Lepidoptera of the State of São Paulo: diversity, distribution, resources, and use for analysis and environmental monitoring

Abstract

Information about the distribution and ecology of many large invertebrate groups is very scarce in São Paulo, especially in the interior where the original vegetation is strongly fragmented. Such information could lead to important theoretical and practical knowledge, essential for the evaluation and conservation of biological diversity and endemic or threatened species, in the remaining natural systems. Inventories of up to 3000 species in nine reasonably well-known families of herbivorous Lepidoptera (silk-moths - Saturniidae, hawk-moths Sphingidae, tiger-moths - Arctiidae, loopers - Geometridae, and the five families of butterflies) and their environments and resources, will be made in 44 sub regions in the state, with the 40 in the interior representing various types and sizes of forest or cerrado fragments. Each region will be visited and inventoried by observation and standard censuses (collecting only when necessary for identification, or for additional biological or chemical study) and mapped by project teams for 1-3 days twice a year during three years, working together with local naturalists whenever possible. The data-base thus obtained (combined with previous information, most already collated), as well as identification and monitoring manuals, will be made available to local natural history and conservation groups and persons throughout the state, on the Internet and by other media. New and already existing reference collections will be organized and supported in various parts of São Paulo. Sites or interactions of special importance will be studied and recommended, when necessary, for permanent protection. Optimal indicator groups of Lepidoptera will be identified and standardized, so that monitors trained in each region can use them to follow environmental changes. (AU)
