Functional trait niches of North American lotic insects: traits-based ecological applications in light of phylogenetic relationships
Abstract The use of species traits to characterize the functional composition of benthic invertebrate communities has become well established in the ecological literature. This approach holds muchExpand

Selenium hyperaccumulation reduces plant arthropod loads in the field.
The elemental defense hypothesis proposes that some plants hyperaccumulate toxic elements as a defense mechanism. In this study the effectiveness of selenium (Se) as an arthropod deterrent wasExpand

At last, a Pennsylvanian stem-stonefly (Plecoptera) discovered
BackgroundStem-relatives of many winged insect orders have been identified among Pennsylvanian fossils (Carboniferous Period). Owing to their presumed 'basal' position in insect phylogeny, stonefliesExpand

Narrow thermal tolerance and low dispersal drive higher speciation in tropical mountains
Significance Over 50 years ago, Dan Janzen proposed an integrative framework relating latitudinal differences in climate variability to elevational trends in species diversity. We show that tropicalExpand

EVALUATION OF THE MORPHOLOGICAL SPECIES CONCEPTS OF 16 WESTERN NEARCTIC ISOPERLA SPECIES (PLECOPTERA: PERLODIDAE) AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SPECIES GROUPS USING DNA BARCODING
We evaluate support for the morphologically based species concepts for 16 western Nearctic Isoperla Banks 1906 species (Plecoptera: Perlodidae) and their respective species groups using the barcodeExpand

Climate variability predicts thermal limits of aquatic insects across elevation and latitude
Summary Janzen's extension of the climate variability hypothesis posits that increased seasonal variation at high latitudes should result in greater temperature overlap across elevations, and favorExpand

Morphological Taxonomy, DNA Barcoding, and Species Diversity in Southern Rocky Mountain Headwater Streams
Abstract: Elevation gradients allow scientists to observe changes in fauna over a range of abiotic conditions. A variety of trends in aquatic insect diversity patterns across elevation have beenExpand
