Distribution, Ecology and Population Dynamics of the American Burying Beetle [Nicrophorus Americanus Olivier (Coleoptera, Silphidae)] in South-central Nebraska, USA
TLDR
Estimates of population size and range, and novel data on seasonal and daily activity, sex ratio, age-grading and foraging distances are presented to allow future work on captive breeding, re-introduction and genetic studies.
A checklist of the Scarabaeoidea (Coleoptera) of Panama

This work offers more effective sampling procedures for N. americanus and suggests the current USFWS sampling protocol should be modified, which will also improve sampling for other silphid species.
INVERTEBRATE LEBENSSPUREN OF HOLOCENE FLOODPLAINS: THEIR MORPHOLOGY, ORIGIN AND PALEOECOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE
TLDR
Although rocks of floodplain origin are volumetrically important, they contain relatively few trace fossils and identification of tracemakers for rocks of Floodplain origin is as difficult as for marine rocks.
