Cladistic biogeography of the Mexican transition zone
Use of a general area cladogram in such a transition zone permits explicit exploration of biogeographic patterns and establishes a predictive framework for taxonomy and conservation prioritization. Expand
Sex pheromone of the european corn borer,Ostrinia nubilalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), in New York
Two pheromone components of the European corn borer, Ostrinia nubilalis (Hübner), from New York are identified and this isomeric blend extracted from the female abdominal tips is very similar to the most attractive synthetic mixture in the field in New York. Expand
Distribution and Abundance of Carabidae (Coleoptera) Associated with Soybean Aphid (Hemiptera: Aphididae) Populations in Central New York
A significant negative exponential relationship described this relationship between activity density of carabids and aphid density and it was confirmed that the dominant species A. muelleri readily eats soybean aphids, which is consistent with carabid predation on Soybean aphid populations. Expand
Flightlessness in insects.
The evolution of wings is heralded as the most important event in the diversification of insects, yet flight-wing loss has occurred in nearly all pterygote insect orders. Flight loss is especiallyExpand
Inferring phylogenetic relationships within Carabidae (Insecta, Coleoptera) from characters of the female reproductive tract
Characters of the female reproductive tract, ovipositor, and abdomen are analyzed using cladi­ stic parsimony for a comprehensive representation of carabid beetle tribes. The resulting cladogram isExpand
Phylogeny and revision of the Anchomenus Clade : the genera Tetraleucus, Anchomenus, Sericoda, and Elliptoleus (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Platynini)
This chapter discusses the development of characters in the Anchomenus Clade, as well as some of the mechanisms that went into its development. Expand
Redefinition of the Supertribe Odacanthitae, and Revision of the West Indian Lachnophorini (Coleoptera: Carabidae)
Based on cladistic analysis of exemplar generic taxa using 57 morphological characters of the adult stage, the carabid supertribe Odacanthitae is redefined to include the tribes Odacanthini andExpand
