|After collecting five times in the
Serra do Mar area of the Atlantic Forest (2003-2011), this expedition
was the first to cover the southern part, in the states of Parana,
Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul. Together with Leonardo Souza Carvalho,
we covered some 3000 km, and it was fascinating to see the variety of
landscapes and forests in this part of Brazil.
In case this was too many spider
photos, here some others to keep the balance.
|This expedition was funded by the Brazilian Government (CAPES/CNPq) through a project submitted by Adalberto José dos Santos. I am most grateful to Adalberto for inviting me to participate in this expedition, and to Leonardo for his preparations of the trip and for being a great companion in the field.|
