Are higher taxa level assemblages suited to discriminate different habitats? A case study using Braconid subfamilies in three Tuscan vineyards


Abstract: In this study we investigated the communities of Braconid subfamilies in three different Tuscan vineyards (Italy). Vineyards are permanent crops which allow a long-term development of species community and resulted particularly suited in performing biodiversity studies.By the comparison of the abundance and the community composition of Braconid subfamilies across vineyards and over time, we focused on the possibility to ecologically distinguish the three vineyards.
