Two way analysis of variance (ANOVA)/ Kruskal-Wallis tests, and associated multiple comparisons tests, Tuckey and Dunn were used for testing: a) possible differences of nesting guild selection (tunnelers, dweller, rollers) and feeding guild selection (coprophagous
, necrophagous, saprophages and generalist) within the different habitats; b) possible differences in richness and abundance of Scarabaeinae by bait, and c) differences in abundance and richness of the Scarabaeinae by baits within the habitats studied.
& NEALIS, V.G., 1975.- Effects of clearing in a Tropical Rain Forest on the composition of the Coprophagous
Scarab Beetle Fauna (Coleoptera).
This tendency of adult coprophagous
muscids to avoid environments with sun exposure could be related to a decrease in the drying time of the substrate, and resource utilization by the larvae as a substrate for breeding (Blackith and Blackith 1993).

Abstract: In a tropical dry forest landscape, in the inlet of Bahia Concha, Santa Marta, Colombia, we evaluated the spatio-temporal variation in the assemblage of coprophagous
coleopterans associated with three zones with different degrees of anthropogenic disturbance.
Why and where coprophagous
beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeinae) eat seeds, fruits or vegetable detritus.
Feeding segregation: Most of the collected species were coprophagous
, with a lower percentage of necrophagous and generalist species (Fig.
