Comparison of phylogenetic signal between male genitalia and non‐genital characters in insect systematics
It is generally accepted that male genitalia evolve more rapidly and divergently relative to non‐genital traits due to sexual selection, but there is little quantitative comparison of the pattern ofExpand

Mosaic pattern of genital divergence in three populations of Schistocerca lineata Scudder, 1899 (Orthoptera: Acrididae: Cyrtacanthacridinae)
Sexual selection theory predicts that genital structures in isolated populations are likely to diverge, but male genitalia are often species-specific, which led to the idea that male genitalia areExpand

Phylogeny of locusts and grasshoppers reveals complex evolution of density-dependent phenotypic plasticity
Locusts are grasshoppers that can form dense migrating swarms through an extreme form of density-dependent phenotypic plasticity, known as locust phase polyphenism. We present a comprehensiveExpand

Density-Dependent Phase Polyphenism in Nonmodel Locusts: A Minireview
Although the specific mechanisms of locust phase transformation are wellunderstood for model locust species such as the desert locust Schistocerca gregaria and the migratory locust LocustaExpand

Phylogeny of bird‐grasshopper subfamily Cyrtacanthacridinae (Orthoptera: Acrididae) and the evolution of locust phase polyphenism
Locust phase polyphenism is an extreme form of density‐dependent phenotypic plasticity in which solitary and cryptic grasshoppers can transform into gregarious and conspicuous locusts in response toExpand

Species-specificity of male genitalia is characterized by shape, size, and complexity
While species-specifi city of male genitalia is a well-documented pattern among insects which can be explained by sexual selection, there are a number of species that appear to lack species-specifi cExpand

Reinventing the leaf: multiple origins of leaf-like wings in katydids (Orthoptera : Tettigoniidae)
Abstract. Insects have developed incredible means to avoid detection by predators. At least five insect orders have species that resemble leaves. Katydids (Orthoptera : Tettigoniidae) are the mostExpand

From Molecules to Management: Mechanisms and Consequences of Locust Phase Polyphenism
Abstract Locusts are grasshoppers (Orthoptera: Acrididae) that are characterised by their capacity for extreme population density-dependent polyphenism, transforming between a cryptic solitariousExpand

Phylogenetic perspectives on the evolution of locust phase polyphenism
Abstract Locust phase polyphenism is a spectacular example of density-dependent phenotypic plasticity. It is generally interpreted as an adaptation to heterogeneous environmental conditions broughtExpand
