Preliminary re-examination of genus-level taxonomy of the pollen beetle subfamily Meligethinae (Coleoptera: Nitidulidae)
- P. Audisio, A. Cline, Cerretti Pierfilippo
Genus-level taxonomy of Meligethinae (Nitidulidae) is presented, and type species of all recognized genera are indicated and/or indicated, a preliminary check list of inclusive described species is provided.
Molecular phylogeny of Nitidulidae: assessment of subfamilial and tribal classification and formalization of the family Cybocephalidae (Coleoptera: Cucujoidea)
- A. Cline, T. Smith, K. Miller, M. Moulton, M. Whiting, P. Audisio
- 1 October 2014
A molecular phylogeny of Nitidulidae based on thirty ingroup taxa representing eight of the ten currently recognized subfamilies supports the following main conclusions and emendations: Cybocephalidae are formally recognized as a distinct family not closely related to Nitidalidae and its constituent taxa are defined.

- A. Cline
- 1 December 2011
An extensive and detailed checklist of the Coleoptera fauna of Maine, covering 2,871 species in 96 families, with the exclusion of dubious or likely erroneous records by authors without the requisite expertise to identify problematic species in difficult genera.
Lygus hesperus (Hemiptera: Miridae) Feeding on Cotton: New Methods and Parameters for Analysis of Nonsequential Electrical Penetration Graph Data
- E. Backus, A. Cline, M. Ellerseick, M. S. Serrano
- 1 March 2007
This study is the first to statistically analyze the stylet probing/penetration behaviors of Lygus bugs, and the external body movements associated with both probing and nonprobing, via electrical penetration graph (EPG) and videorecording, respectively, and provides the first complete system of organization and terminology for nonsequential EPG parameters.
Correlations Among AC Electronic Monitoring Waveforms, Body Postures, and Stylet Penetration Behaviors of Lygus hesperus (Hemiptera: Miridae)
A behavioral ethogram for feeding and nonfeeding behaviors of Lygus hesperus Knight, the western tarnished plant bug, was developed using third instars on host and nonhost plants, as well as an artificial diet to verify ingestion and possible salivation activities during other waveforms.

- J. Ellis, K. Delaplane, A. Cline, J. McHugh
- 1 January 2008
This paper presents a new probabilistic method that allows for direct measurement of the response of bees to light, which has never been done before in this type of research.

- A. Tishechkin, A. Cline
- Environmental Science, Biology
- 1 April 2008
The results indicate a similar beetle fauna to those found in pocket gopher burrows in Texas and Oklahoma but differing from that of burrow systems in Florida, Nebraska, and Wisconsin.
