Insect succession and decomposition patterns on shaded and sunlit carrion in Saskatchewan in three different seasons.
A study was conducted on decomposition and insect succession in the Prairie Ecozone of Saskatchewan in the year 2000. Eighteen domestic pig carcasses (42-79 kg) were employed as human models forExpand

Revision of the Agathidinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) with comparisons of static and dynamic alignments
The phylogeny of the Agathidinae (Insecta: Hymenoptera: Braconidae) is investigated based on morphological and sequence data from the D2–3 regions of 28S rDNA. Morphology and molecular data were runExpand

Expressed sequence tags reveal Proctotrupomorpha (minus Chalcidoidea) as sister to Aculeata (Hymenoptera: Insecta).
Hymenoptera is one of the most diverse groups of animals on the planet and have vital importance for ecosystem function as pollinators and parasitoids. Higher-level relationships among HymenopteraExpand

Phylogenomic Evidence Overturns Current Conceptions of Social Evolution in Wasps (Vespidae)
Abstract The hypothesis that eusociality originated once in Vespidae has shaped interpretation of social evolution for decades and has driven the supposition that preimaginal morphophysiologicalExpand

Rapid Viral Symbiogenesis via Changes in Parasitoid Wasp Genome Architecture
Viral genome integration provides a complex route to biological innovation that has rarely but repeatedly occurred in one of the most diverse lineages of organisms on the planet, parasitoid wasps. WeExpand

Developing EPIC markers for chalcidoid Hymenoptera from EST and genomic data
Increasing numbers of phylogeographic studies make comparative inferences about the histories of co‐distributed species. Although the aims of such studies are best achieved by jointly analysingExpand

QUANTIFYING THE PLEISTOCENE HISTORY OF THE OAK GALL PARASITOID CECIDOSTIBA FUNGOSA USING TWENTY INTRON LOCI
The longitudinal spread of temperate organisms into refugial populations in Southern Europe is generally assumed to predate the last interglacial. However, few studies have attempted to quantify thisExpand
