          Abstract

          ABSTRACT Balloniscus glaber Araujo & Zardo, 1995 (Balloniscidae), a Neotropical Oniscidea, has been recorded historically in environments with low or no human interference. In one of these areas, it was determined as aK-strategist. Recently, however, this species was documented in a disturbed forest within urban limits. The present work revealed that the population in the urban area has high density, high number of ovigerous females and mancae in the population, a long reproductive period, and early sexual maturity. These results suggest that modified environments may provide favorable conditions and that the species is not negatively affected by human influence.

          RESUMO Balloniscus glaber Araujo & Zardo, 1995 (Balloniscidae), um oniscídeo Neotropical, tem sido registrado historicamente em ambientes com baixa ou sem interferência humana. Em uma dessas áreas, a espécie foi classificada como K-estrategista. No entanto, recentemente foi registrada em uma floresta perturbada dentro dos limites urbanos. O presente trabalho revela que a população na área urbana tem densidade alta, elevado número de fêmeas ovígeras e mancas, período reprodutivo longo e maturidade sexual precoce. Estes resultados sugerem que um ambiente modificado pode proporcionar condições favoráveis e que a espécie não é afetada negativamente pela influência humana.
