|Abstract: ||In order to study species diversity and population interactions, vineyard, weed vegetation and mite
population were surveyed. This research was carried monthly from April to December 2004, in two
vineyards located in the Setúbal region, with different soils and climate conditions.
A total of 167 weed taxa were identified belonging to 42 botanical families. Asteraceae, Fabaceae and
Poaceae showed the greatest number of species.
Considering the species with a relative higher frequency, the more abundant were Calendula arvensis,
Convolvulus arvensis, Cynodon dactylon, Lavatera cretica and Parietaria judaica, in the vineyard of
Quinta de Camarate, and Convolvulus arvensis, Cynodon dactylon and Panicum repens, in Quinta do
In vines 12 mite species were identified, the dominants were the phytophagous Calepitrimerus vitis
and the predators Typhlodromus pyri, Typhlodromus phialatus and Homeopronematus anconai.
In ground cover were identified 32 mite species, tetranychids and phytoseiids were the predominant
mites, especially Tetranychus cinnabarinus, the most polyphagous species, detected in 37 weeds, and
Typhlodromus pyri, the predominant phytoseiid, found in vines and cover vegetation, being present in
From acarological point of view, weeds can be considered useful in vineyards, safeguarding
Tetranychus urticae hosts and that there may be competition to the crop.|
