Analysis of Environmental Vulnerablities Identified by Stakeholders in the Elqui River Valley with focus on Arthropods of Economical Importance
Cepeda-Pizarro, J. and J. Pizarro-Araya
Literature review showed a lack of relevant studies/publications on climate change effects on arthropod populations. Most of the information is too generalist or presumptive to get sound conclusions. In the case of this work, the present study sets a baseline upon which future trends may be envisioned. Locally, the thermal and moisture variability found in the arthropods? habitat can apparently favor the outbreak of some species, such as has been shown by Fuentes and Campusano (1985) and Cepeda-Pizarro et al. (in peer review).
