MOJ Biology and Medicine
Carlos Henrique Marchiori


The Caatinga is the only biome restricted to the Brazilian territory, occupying basically the Region Northeast, with some areas in the state of Minas Gerais. Caatinga vegetation does not have green exuberance rainforests and the dry aspect of the physiognomies dominated by cacti and shrubs suggests low diversification of fauna and flora. To unravel your wealth you need a look more attentive, more open. So she reveals her great biodiversity, its biological relevance and its peculiar beauty. This study aimed to make a bibliographic summaryof parasitoids of Caatinga, as well as their characteristics, main groups and species and studies performed.
