Timeless standards for species delimitation.
Recently a new species of bombyliid fly, Marleyimyia xylocopae, was described by Marshall & Evenhuis (2015) based on two photographs taken during fieldwork in the Republic of South Africa. ThisExpand
Primary hypotheses of global areas of endemism based on the distribution of Tabanomorpha (Diptera, Brachycera).
TLDR
The global distribution at the species-level of the infraorder Tabanomorpha (Diptera, Brachycera) is investigated, identifying areas of endemism for the group and proposed bioregionalisation schemes established by other taxa. Expand
Areas of endemism in the Neotropical region based on the geographical distribution of Tabanomorpha (Diptera: Brachycera).
TLDR
In a broad sense, the main areas of endemism recovered for Tabanomorpha are congruent with the recent proposals of regionalisation for the Neotropical region. Expand
USING HISTORICAL BIOGEOGRAPHY AS A FRAMEWORK FOR TEACHING EVOLUTION AND CONSERVATION
Biogeography is hardly present in schools, despite its high potential for guiding classes on evolution. Herein, we discuss how principles of historical biogeography and phylogenetic systematics canExpand
The man who loved flies: a biographical profile of Nelson Papavero .
TLDR
A biography of Nelson Papavero is presented, along with several personal anecdotes, and his role in the development of Brazilian biological systematics over the last 50 years is presented. Expand
[A life among insects and books: an interview with Nelson Papavero].
TLDR
Nelson Papavero is one of the top representatives of Brazilian zoology and was key to the introduction of Hennig's phylogenetic systematics in Brazil and its chief advocate. Expand
