Histone H3 and U2 snRNA DNA sequences and arthropod molecular evolution
The range of DNA sequences used to study the interrelationships of the major arthropod groups (chelicerates, myriapods, hexapods and crustaceans) is limited. Here we investigate the value of two… Expand
Arthropod Cladistics: Combined Analysis of Histone H3 and U2 snRNA Sequences and Morphology
Morphological, developmental, ultrastructural, and gene order characters are catalogued for the same set of arthropod terminals as we have scored in a recent study of histone H3 and U2 snRNA… Expand
The fourth-corner solution – using predictive models to understand how species traits interact with the environment
Summary An important problem encountered by ecologists in species distribution modelling (SDM) and in multivariate analysis is that of understanding why environmental responses differ across… Expand
Effects of habitat complexity on forest beetle diversity: do functional groups respond consistently?
We examined the responses of a beetle assemblage to habitat complexity differences within a single habitat type, Sydney sandstone ridgetop woodland, using pitfall and flight-intercept trapping. Six… Expand
Systematics, biodiversity, biogeography, and host associations of the Miridae (Insecta: Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Cimicomorpha).
The Miridae, a hyperdiverse family containing more than 11,020 valid described species, are discussed and the pertinent literature is reviewed. Diagnoses for the family and subfamilies are given.… Expand
Insects ‘Down Under’– Diversity, endemism and evolution of the Australian insect fauna: examples from select orders
The Australian insect fauna is highly endemic and characterised by numerous unique higher-level taxa. In addition, a number of groups are noticeably absent or depauperate on the continent. Many… Expand
Species identity of Macrolophus melanotoma (Costa 1853) and Macrolophus pygmaeus (Rambur 1839) (Insecta: Heteroptera: Miridae) based on morphological and molecular data and bionomic implications
Macrolophus contains a small group of Palaearctic species with very simple and similar external morphology. The classification of these species has been based on variable characters such as body… Expand
Human Remains from the Pleistocene-Holocene Transition of Southwest China Suggest a Complex Evolutionary History for East Asians
Background Later Pleistocene human evolution in East Asia remains poorly understood owing to a scarcity of well described, reliably classified and accurately dated fossils. Southwest China has been… Expand
Traumatic insemination in the plant bug genus Coridromius Signoret (Heteroptera: Miridae)
In traumatic insemination, males pierce females with hypodermic genitalia and ejaculate into the body cavity rather than into the genital tract. This has resulted in the evolution of female… Expand
Hemiptera : Heteroptera (Coleorrhyncha to Cimicomorpha)
The first of two volumes on the Heteroptera, this volume includes beneficial species among reduriids and species introduced for bio-control, as well as pestiferous species. The volume deals with… Expand
