The distribution of Tettigoniinae (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae) specieswithin four phytogeographical provinces in Turkey is reviewed and presented onthe basis of field and collection studies during 1987–2001 andmiscellaneous data from previous literature. One hundred and sixty speciesbelonging to 28 genera have been recorded. The Anatolian species(More)
A critical review of the taxonomy and systematics of the genus Isophya from the Balkan Peninsula, together with a revision of the I. modesta group, including its representatives outside the Balkans, has been made using morphological, bioacoustic and karyological data. As a result, the following taxonomic considerations have been proposed: (1) the status of(More)
The Poecilimon bosphoricus species group, representing the most diverse lineage of the bushcricket genus Poecilimon, has been studied in the Basin of Marmara Sea. Two new species, P. warchalowskae sp. n. and P. canakkale sp. n., are described morphologically and acoustically in comparison to their related taxa of the P. bosphoricus species group. Song type(More)
The Anatolio-Caucasio-Balkan genus Psorodonotus (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae) presently includes 13 species belonging to three species groups. In the present study we review the Specularis group and describe two new species-P. rize Kaya & Ciplak sp. n. and P. giresun Kaya & Ciplak sp. n.. Data obtained of 21 different populations from the North-eastern(More)
Although changes in biodiversity and in ecosystems are surely caused by a range of interacting drivers, such as natural or human-induced factors, one of the important drivers having major impacts on climate and biodiversity and leading to range changes and fragmentation is global warming. Defining past range changes/fragmentations during interglacial(More)
Psorodonotus (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae) includes 11 species distributed in Caucasus, Anatolia and Balkans. Although its present taxonomy is problematic, mainly three species groups can be distinguished; (i) The Specularis Group, (ii) The Caucasicus Group and (iii) The Venosus Group. Our recent studies on the genus have revealed presence of two new species(More)
