Social call divergence in bats: a comparative analysis
Lay Summary Many ecological and evolutionary factors may induce acoustic divergence between species. Using a wide data set on bats, we show that interspecific divergence in social calls areExpand

Gene expression vs. sequence divergence: comparative transcriptome sequencing among natural Rhinolophus ferrumequinum populations with different acoustic phenotypes
BackgroundAlthough the sensory drive hypothesis can explain the geographic variation in echolocation frequencies of some bat species, the molecular mechanisms underlying this phenomenon are stillExpand

Molecular basis of peripheral olfactory sensing during oviposition in the behavior of the parasitic wasp Anastatus japonicus.
Anastatus japonicus is a parasitic wasp and natural enemy of the litchi pest Tessaratoma papillosa, and for decades in China, A. japonicus has been mass-reared inside the eggs of Antheraea pernyi toExpand

Selectivity and ligand-based molecular modeling of an odorant-binding protein from the leaf beetle Ambrostoma quadriimpressum (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) in relation to habitat-related volatiles
In this study, the most abundant and antenna-specific odorant-binding protein (OBP) of the elm pest A. quadriimpressum, AquaOBP4, was expressed and purified. The selectivity of AquaOBP4 wasExpand

Comparative cochlear transcriptomics of echolocating bats provides new insights into different nervous activities of CF bat species
The molecular mechanisms used by echolocating bats to deal with different ultrasonic signals remain to be revealed. Here, we utilised RNA-Seq data to conduct comparative cochlear transcriptomics toExpand

Temperature-Mediated Effects of Host Alternation on the Adaptation of Myzus persicae (Hemiptera: Aphididae)
ABSTRACT Local adaptation, an important phenomenon in ecological speciation, occurs in Myzus persicae (Sulzer), with the tobacco-adapted line proposed as a subspecies. Recent studies showed thatExpand

Screening of Essential Oil Antifeedants in the Elm Pest Ambrostoma quadriimpressum (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
Abstract The leaf beetle Ambrostoma quadriimpressum Motschulsky (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) is a major pest of elm (Ulmus; Rosales: Ulmaceae) in eastern Asia, and there is currently no effective,Expand

Multilocus phylogeny and species delimitation within the philippinensis group (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae)
Rhinolophids (horseshoe bats) are a widespread and diverse family. Their high level of morphological convergence has made taxonomic identification and estimation of species diversity problematic. TheExpand
