Sánchez-Reyes, U.J., S. Niño-Maldonado, L. Barrientos-Lozano, S.M. Clark, and R.W. Jones. 2016. Faunistic patterns of leaf beetles (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae) within elevational and temporal gradients in Sierra de San Carlos, Mexico. ZooKeys 611: 11-56.

Abstract

The study of biodiversity of Chrysomelidae in Mexico and its variation within ecological gradients has increased recently, although important areas in the country remain to be explored. We conducted a faunistic inventory and analyzed the elevational and temporal variation of leaf beetle communities in the Sierra de San Carlos, in the state of Tamaulipas, in northeastern Mexico.
