Phylogenetic placement and redescription of Aleochara blackburni Bernhauer & Scheerpeltz, 1926 (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) from coastal Australia
To investigate the phylogenetic placement of A. blackburni and taxonomic problems within the Emplenota and Triochara clade, 34 populations of 13 coastal and one inland species were studied and a molecular phylogeny of the genus Aleochara Gravenhorst was generated based on three partial mitochondrial genes (COI, tRNA leucine and COII).
Irradiation of Queensland Fruit Fly Pupae to Meet Quarantine Requirements
In Dacus tryoni (Froggatt) no significant differences in radiation sensitivity were observed in 7 strains originating from Queensland and New South Wales. The most radiation-resistant physiological…
