Article ID: 331


Its ecological processes evolved from the eocene, when the continents were already relatively willing as they are today . Currently, the Atlantic Forest has only 7%. of its original area Parasitoids are organisms that cause the death of their hosts to complete their development and act as parasites only in the larval stage, when they develop in only one host, with adults having a free life.This manuscript consists of the elaboration of a bibliographic summary of the parasitoids collected in Atlantic Forest biomes. A bibliographic research was carried out that contained published works in the years 2002 to 2021.
