Modeling sexual differences of body size variation in ground beetles in geographical gradient (The case study in Pterostichus oblongpunctatus Fabricius, 1787)
Fleshing out the mechanisms of Bergmann rule, saw-tooth pattern in body size variation in ground beetle Pterostichus oblongopunctatus is found and the hypothesis, that male′s variation is steeper in latitude gradient was not confirmed. Expand
Modeling Sexual Differences of Body Size Variation in Ground Beetles in Geographical Gradient (The Case Study in Pterostichus oblongopunctatus Fabricius, 1787)
Fleshing out the mechanisms of Bergmann rule, we found saw-tooth pattern in body size variation in ground beetle Pterostichus oblongopunctatus. We sampled beetles in 2010 – 2018 at the forestExpand

Biotope Impact on Fluctuating Asymmetry Manifestation in Ground beetles (Coleoptera, Carabidae)
The data set on morphimetric traits in beetles species has been constantly replenishing for 20 years by the samples, received from different regions of Russia and abroad and showed that biotope, species and their interaction affected FA in both traits, that is different species reacted differently to biotopes type.
