  • Arthropods are among the most diverse and abundant group of animals found in tropical forests. Arthropods that live in litter and soil provide a number of ecosystem services such as maintenance of soil structure and nutrient cycling. Despite the key ecological roles of these organisms, very little is known about arthropods communities in high elevation tropical ecosystems.
