This book is about superfamily Scarabaeoidea (families Ceratocanthidae, Geotrupidae, Hybosoridae, Lucanidae, Ochodaeidae, Passalidae, Scarabaeidae, and Trogidae are represented).
The aim of this work was to isolate and characterize yeasts associated with the xylophagous beetle Veturius transversus (Passalidae, Coleoptera, and Insecta) able to assimilate sugarcane bagasse hemicellulosic hydrolysate (SBHH) as sole carbon source and produce xylitol by D-xylose fermentation.
(2000) aportaron al conocimiento de los escarabajos Passalidae de esta ecorregion, hallando tres especies con interesantes anotaciones ecologicas, asi mismo, Pardo-Locarno (2013) reporto 42 especies de escarabajos melolaontidos, consideradas habitantes de esta region, planteando tambien la posibilidad de extinciones locales.
Dentro de estos ultimos citan 14 especies pertenecientes a Coleoptera (Histeridae, Passalidae, Scarabeidae, Staphylinidae y Tenebrionidae), Hemiptera (Cydnidae) y Diptera (Muscidae) mediante recopilacion de diversa literatura (ver tambien a REICHENSPERGER, 1938, 1939; STAHEL & GEIJSKES, 1939).
