The Control of Biological Invasions in the World's Oceans
TLDR
A framework for control of alien marine species is presented to provide guidance for control efforts under the existing patchwork of national laws and can help provide a foundation for international cooperation. Expand
Ecology of Cave Arthropods
TLDR
In general, the science of biospeleology in the United States has lagged far behind studies in Europe, and it was not until the 1950s that the modern period of cave biology began in North America. Expand
Evolution in Hawaiian cave-adapted isopods (Oniscidea: Philosciidae): vicariant speciation or adaptive shifts?
TLDR
This is the first molecular investigation of evolutionary relationships between surface-dwelling and cavernicolous arthropods in Hawaii and it suggests that simple vicariance is insufficient to explain the evolution of troglobites in tropical zones. Expand
Environmental Impacts of Classical Biological Control
TLDR
Evaluation des consequences positives and negatives of the lutte biologique contre les insectes, permettant de reduire les impacts negatifs. Expand
The evolution of non-relictual tropical troglobites
TLDR
Rather than being relicts isolated in caves by the extinction of their epigean ancestral population, troglobites appear to evolve by a process called adaptive shift from specicls that are frequent accidentals in the mesocaverns. Expand
THE ZOOGEOGRAPHY OF SPECIALIZED CAVE ANIMALS: A BIOCLIMATIC MODEL

  • 1 March 1980
TLDR
Evidence is presented that there are clear bioclimatological and physical principles governing evaporation that largely explain why the true cave environment, to which the terrestrial troglobites are adapted, is much rarer in tropical caves than in temperate caves. Expand
THE CAVERNICOLOUS FAUNA OF HAWAIIAN LAVA TUBES, 1. INTRODUCTION
The Hawaiian Islands offer great potential for evolutionary research. The discovery of specialized cavernicoles among the adaptively radiating fauna adds to that potential. About 50 lava tubes and aExpand
Progress in risk assessment for classical biological control
TLDR
Progress in research and regulation of biological control are discussed with particular reference to Australasia, and there is cause for some optimism that the risks associated with biological control can be better identified and managed in the future. Expand
