Controversial patterns of Wolbachia infestation in the social parasitic Maculinea butterflies (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)
A comprehensive study on Wolbachia infestation and the genetic diversity of all Maculinea species in the Carpathian Basin, which could not detect mito-nuclear discordance or find evidence for Wolbachio-induced selective sweep.
Capillary gas chromatographic separation and mass spectrometric detection of cyromazine and its metabolite melamine.
Multilevel studies on the two phenological forms of Large Blue (Maculinea arion) (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)
Study of the differences between the two phenological forms of the socially parasitic and globally threatened Large Blue in the Carpathian Basin using four character sets shows discordant results, indicating that the combined use of different approaches and data sets is strictly necessary to clarify systematic and evolutionary relationships.
Species distribution modelling leads to the discovery of new populations of one of the least known European snakes, Vipera ursinii graeca, in Albania
The number of known populations increased by 60% and the known geographical range of the subspecies by approximately 30% and this study serves as a baseline for further ecological research and for conservation measures for one of the least known European viperid snakes.
The genetic structure of phenologically differentiated Large Blue (Maculinea arion) populations (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) in the Carpathian Basin
It is concluded that the "spring" and "summer arion" could not be considered as separate ESUs, although they could attribute conservation value to both forms on the basis of their phenological differentiation and habitat use.
Future of winegrape growing regions in Europe
Background and Aims Recent climatic warming trends are evident from observational studies, and investigating the likely impact of climate change on biological systems is of substantial importance.…
Litter removal does not compensate detrimental fire effects on biodiversity in regularly burned semi-natural grasslands.
Mito-nuclear discordance helps to reveal the phylogeographic patterns of Melitaea ornata (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)
Maculinea rebeli (Hirschke) – a phantom or reality? Novel contribution to a long‐standing debate over the taxonomic status of an enigmatic Lycaenidae butterfly
The results showed that ‘rebeli’ from the type locality differed strongly from all other samples not only at the highly variable microsatellites, but also at standard genes and clearly represents a well‐ separated unit (potentially subspecies) within M. alcon.
Relationships within the Melitaea phoebe species group (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae): new insights from molecular and morphometric information
Molecular sequences including one mitochondrial and up to six nuclear gene regions from 38 specimens of the Melitaea phoebe species group sensu Higgins and some closely related taxa from the Palaearctic region were analysed and the possible evolution of the processus posterior of the male genitalia was reconstructed based on a shape mapping technique.
