A phylogenetic analysis of the megadiverse Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera)
The first phylogenetic analysis of the superfamily Chalcidoidea based on both morphological and molecular data is presented and several life‐history traits are mapped onto the new phylogeny.
Phylogenetic analysis of Eurytominae (Chalcidoidea : Eurytomidae) based on morphological characters
The large genus Eurytoma– which includes about half of the described species of the subfamily – proved to be polyphyletic, and is redefined in a narrowed sense using putative synapomorphies, and the family Eurytomidae is proposed to restrict to these two taxa.
A new genus of Tetrastichinae (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) from the Neotropical Region, with the description of a new species parasitic on key pests of oil palm
The new genus Palmistichus is described, with a key presented to the two included species: elaeisis sp. n., and ixtlilxochitli (Girault) comb. n. Host and distributional information is given for both
A New Species of Quadrastichus (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae): A Gall-inducing Pest on Erythrina (Fabaceae)
Quadrastichus erythrinae Kim sp.n. is described from Singapore, Mauritius and Reunion. This species forms galls on the leaves, stems, petioles and young shoots of Erythrina variegata and E. fusca in
A review of methods for sampling arthropods in tree canopies
A review of most of the "non-fogging" methods which have been used to sample arthropods in tree canopies, particularly in tropical forests, is presented, emphasising the strengths and limitations of
Rose gall wasps and their associated fauna (hymenoptera) in Iran
Over a four year period, the rose gall wasps (Diplolepis spp.) and their associated fauna were studied in the northern regions of Iran and a brief biological review of the parasitoids associated with cynipids wasps is given.
Abundance and stratification of foliage arthropods in a lowland rain forest of Cameroon
Arthropod densities and apparent leaf damage were compared within the canopy ecotone and the shrub layer of a lowland rain forest in Cameroon, using a branch clipping method to find out whether layer effects rather than site effects appeared to cause greater variance in arthropod abundance.
On the New World Chalcididae (Hymenoptera)
L'identification et la comparaison des especes decrites ou placees dans le genre Chalcis par J.C. Fabricius (1787-1084) avec les especes decrites posterieurement ont permis de reveler de nombreuses
Distribution of tomato-infecting begomoviruses and Bemisia tabaci biotypes in Morocco
The begomovirus infections were unevenly distributed throughout Morocco, and the frequency of plants exhibiting TYLCD-like symptoms in the northern regions was lower than that in the south-west region and in the north-east region.
Hymenoptera. Chapter 12
It is revealed that nearly 300 species of Hymenoptera belonging to 30 families have been introduced to Europe, and in terms of alien species diversity within invertebrate orders, this result ranks Hymanoptera third following Coleoptera and Hemiptera.
