Key innovation or adaptive change? A test of leaf traits using Triodiinae in Australia
The evolution of novel traits (“key innovations”) allows some lineages to move into new environments or adapt to changing climates, whereas other lineages may track suitable habitat or go extinct. WeExpand

The insect order Tysanoptera: Classification versus systematics
Two widely different classifications of the insect order Thysanoptera are discussed; an essentially phylogenetic system recognizing nine families in two suborders, and an essentially phenetic systemExpand

Phylogenetics of gall-inducing thrips on Australian Acacia
Analysis of DNA sequence data from four genes (Elongation Factor-1α, wingless, 16S rDNA and cytochrome oxidase I) yielded a well-resolved, well-supported phylogeny for all 21 species of gall-inducingExpand

Phylogenetics of social behavior in Australian gall-forming thrips: evidence from mitochondrial DNA sequence, adult morphology and behavior, and gall morphology.
Six species of Australian gall-forming thrips (Insecta: Thysanoptera) on Acacia exhibit soldier castes, individuals with reduced wings and enlarged forelegs that defend their gall againstExpand

A new thrips pest of Myoporum cultivars in California, in a new genus of leaf-galling Australian Phlaeothripidae (Thysanoptera)
A new genus of Australian Phlaeothripidae is described, Klambothrips, to include a new species of gall-inducing thrips, K. myopori, that is a pest on the leaves of prostrate and upright MyoporumExpand

Molecular relationships between populations of South African citrus thrips (Scirtothrips aurantii Faure) in South Africa and Queensland, Australia
In response to the recent establishment of a population of South African citrus thrips (Scirtothrips aurantii Faure) in Australia, we used DNA sequence data to examine whether this population isExpand

Domicile constructing phlaeothripine Thysanoptera from Acacia phyllodes in Australia: Dunatothrips Moulton and Sartrithrips gen.n., with a key to associated genera
Abstract. Domiciles are constructed by adult females of species in several genera of Australian phlaeothripine Thysanoptera. This is done by glueing or sewing together two or more Acacia phyllodes,Expand

Lipidation of an FlrC-dependent protein is required for enhanced intestinal colonization by Vibrio cholerae.
Vibrio cholerae, the causative agent of cholera, has a sheathed, polar flagellum, and motility has been linked to virulence. An operon with two genes, flgO and flgP (VC2207 and VC2206), is positivelyExpand

Phylogenetics of Australian Acacia thrips: the evolution of behaviour and ecology.
The species of thrips found on Acacia constitute a major component of the Australian thrips fauna, with at least 235 species in more than 30 genera, many of these being in the process of descriptionExpand

Thysanoptera phylogeny - the morphological background
The current morphology-based classification of the insect Order Thysanoptera is not based on sound phylogenetic principles. Disagreement exists concerning the level at which the group should beExpand
