Landscape Factors Facilitating the Invasive Dynamics and Distribution of the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug, Halyomorpha halys (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae), after Arrival in the United States
TLDR
The brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys, a native of Asia, has become a serious invasive pest in the USA, and landscape features associated with the invasion of H. halys in New Jersey may predict its potential rate of invasion across the USA and worldwide.
The influence of fire on Illinois hill prairie Auchenorrhyncha (Insecta: Hemiptera) diversity and integrity
Prescribed burning has been important in maintaining the structure of plant communities in the tallgrass prairie. However, implementation of these burn regimes often overlooks responses of other
Evaluating hill prairie quality in the Midwestern United States using Auchenorrhyncha (Insecta: Hemiptera) and vascular plants: a case study in implementing grassland conservation planning and
In this study a habitat quality index based on Auchenorrhyncha (Insecta: Hemiptera) species composition was used to investigate the index’s ability in discriminating hill prairie quality along a
Immatures of the New World treehopper tribe Amastrini (Hemiptera, Membracidae, Smiliinae) with a key to genera
TLDR
The immatures stages of 8 of the 11 genera of the tribe Amastrini are described for the first time along with brief diagnoses of Membracidae and the subfamily Smiliinae.
Comparative morphology of female gonapophyses IX in Delphacidae (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha: Fulgoromorpha) with key to tribes.
TLDR
A key to delphacid tribes that integrates gonapophyses IX features is presented, hypothesize that the basal delphacids, the Asiracinae, have teeth concentrated at the apex to make short incisions into soft plant tissue and an increase in tooth size and shape may have developed to cut into graminoid hosts with high concentrations of silicate.
