New record, host and localities of bat mite of genus Chirnyssoides (Acari, Sarcoptiformes, Sarcoptidae)
LOURENÇO, Elizabete C.; PINHEIRO, Michele da C.; FACCINI, João Luis H.; FAMADAS, Kátia Maria
Chirnyssoides parasitizes the anterior and posterior edges of bat wing membranes. Possibly due to a lack of studies, its distribution is believed to be restricted to a few countries of Central and South America. The purpose of this paper is to report the presence of Chirnyssoides amazonae on the bat Carollia perspicillata in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and to present a checklist of hosts and localities for Chirnyssoides.

UAV-based Tree Height Estimation in Dense Tropical Rainforest Areas in Ecuador and Brazil (original em inglês)
REDER, Stefan; Waßermann, Lilli; MUND, Jan-Peter
The aim of this study was to develop an easily applicable, cost-efficient workflow for tree height estimation in remote, inaccessible rainforest areas in Ecuador and Brazil. Structure from Motion (SfM) was combined with a digital terrain model (DTM) from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) to complement relief information from photogrammetric point clouds (PPC) which represent the upper canopy layers.
