A proposal for a chorotype classification of the Near East fauna, in the framework of the Western Palearctic Region
A classification of chorotypes is proposed based on 1 Zoological researches in the Near East by Universities oforne: 186 and this study was supported by grants from MURST 1999.
Caraboid beetles (excl. Cicindelidae) of Anatolia, and their biogeographical significance (Coleoptera, Caraboidea)
A synthesis is presented of the present knowledge of caraboids of Anatolia, based on literature and numerous specimens collected and/or examined by the authors, and a preliminary annotated list of Caraboidea known so far for the area is provided.
The diet of a coastal population of European bee‐eaters (Merops apiaster) compared to prey availability (Tuscany, central Italy)
The results showed that the population of European bee‐eaters during the 1986 breeding season fed preferentially on Hymenoptera, which were more preyed upon than their availability in both May and July.

Biochemical systematics and phylogeography of the percus strictus subspecies (coleoptera, carabidae), endemic to Sardinia
Allozymic variation at 14 loci was studied in six Sardinian populations of the carabid beetle Percus strictus, inferred that the major differentiation events took place at the beginning of the Pliocene, in concomitance with sea introgressions that subdivided the island into different blocks roughly corresponding to the present ranges of the different subspecies.
Review of competing hypotheses of phylogenetic relationships of Paussinae (Coleoptera: Carabidae) based on larval characters
According to the present analysis, Physea, regarded traditionally as a typical ozaenine, represents the ozeanine sister to Paussini, showing that Ozaenini are paraphyletic.

A NEW SPECIES OF TRECHUS FROM THE ETHIOPIAN PLATEAU (Coleoptera, Carabidae)
This new taxon shows some peculiar characters, such as a much swollen abdomen of pseudophysiogastric aspect, a feature shared by other high altitude Trechinae, as for instance Queinnectrechus Deuve, 1992 from Asia.
