1. Introduction From the "biospheric membrane that covers the planet Earth" (Wilson, 2002) the neotropics have an immense importance. Biodiversity in the neotropics is a large repository of genetic information. In the neotropical forests, lakes, rivers and wetlands there are the greatest number of plants and animals on planet Earth. The Atlantic Tropical Forest, despite the reduction of its extension over the last 20 years, is still one of the greatest global reserves of biodiversity. (Wilson, 2008).
