About this book

This book describes the fauna of the Pernambuco Endemism Center in Brazil's Northern Atlantic Forest, an understudied global biodiversity hotspot. Through seventeen curated chapters, it provides the latest information about the fauna of the northern portion of the Atlantic Forest, gathering important information about the faunal composition of the region for the first time. The chapters address animal biodiversity including terrestrial and aquatic vertebrates (fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals) and invertebrates (onychophorans, termites, ants, bees, dragonflies, treehopper, collembola, and beetles). Chapters provide species lists, but the book goes beyond just recitation to address human impacts on the forest and its species, conservation, and awareness
