Colonization of an island volcano, Long Island, Papua New Guinea, and an emergent island, Motmot, in its caldera lake. VII. Overview and discussion
In 1999, the plants and vertebrates of Long and the entire biota of Motmot were surveyed for comparison with previous surveys of Long (1932, 1972, birds only) and Motmot (1969–88).
Nest site selection by yellow-faced honeyeaters Lichenostomus chrysops
This study provides further evidence that species may choose a diverse range of nest sites in order to avoid predators from developing specific search images and then, following depredation, compensate by rapidly re-nesting away from the failed attempt.
The social organization and breeding behaviour of the Yellow‐faced Honeyeater Lichenostomus chrysops– a migratory passerine from the Southern Hemisphere
If more data were available for the numerous migratory species from the Southern Hemisphere, some apparent differences from northern hemisphere passerines might disappear, this study suggests.
Colonization of an island volcano, Long Island, Papua New Guinea, and an emergent island, Motmot, in its caldera lake. III. Colonization by birds
A quasi-equilibrium of about fifty species, fourteen fewer than the predicted equilibrium number for the island, has persisted for at least seven decades and may be seen as that appropriate to the present prolonged stage of Long's floral and vegetational development.
Long live Linnaeus, Lineus longissimus (Gunnerus, 1770) (Vermes: Nemertea: Anopla: Heteronemertea: Lineidae), the longest animal worldwide and its relatives occurring in The Netherlands
Attention is called for Lineus longissimus, the longest animal in the world, and especially for its occurrence in The Netherlands. A ribbon worm species new for the Dutch fauna is recorded:…
Mass rearing the coconut rhinoceros beetle, Oryctes rhinoceros L. (Scarab., Dynastinae).

An improved larval diet and temperature-induced pupation has resulted in a shortening of the larval growth period by six weeks on an original period of 27 weeks. A strain of Oryctes rhinoceros was…
Biometrics and sexing criteria of the yellow-faced honeyeater lichenostomus chrysops
The results support previous studies that have demonstrated Yellow-faced Honeyeaters are sexually dimorphic in size, with males being the larger sex.
