      Abstract

      Coleópteros da família Passalidae, com distribuição pantropical, parecem contribuir, pelo menos em parte, para a reciclagem dos nutrientes nas florestas, facilitando a penetração de umidade e de microorganismos decompositores no interior dos troncos mortos, pela abertuda de galerias. Aspectos da bionomia de Passalus convexus Dalm. e Passalus latifrons Perch. Foram estudados durante um ciclo sazonal completo, com levantament dos tipos de troncos atacadio, fauna acompanhante e os estágios de decomposição mais propícios à colonização.
