Annotated keys to the genera of Nearctic Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera).
This title presents illustrated keys to the 19 families and 706 described genera of Chalcidoidea known to occur in the Nearctic region. There are approximately 330 differences between the generaExpand
A phylogenetic analysis of the megadiverse Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera)
TLDR
The first phylogenetic analysis of the superfamily Chalcidoidea based on both morphological and molecular data is presented and several life‐history traits are mapped onto the new phylogeny. Expand
Mapping the biosphere: exploring species to understand the origin, organization and sustainability of biodiversity
TLDR
It is concluded that an ambitious goal to describe 10 million species in less than 50 years is attainable based on the strength of 250 years of progress, worldwide collections, existing experts, technological innovation and collaborative teamwork. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics and reproductive incompatibility in a complex of cryptic species of aphid parasitoids.
TLDR
The evidence on molecular differentiation and reproductive incompatibility supports recognition of at least five cryptic species in the A. varipes complex and discusses likely reasons for the high rate of speciation in this complex. Expand
Evolution and behavioral ecology of heteronomous aphelinid parasitoids.
TLDR
The current understanding of phylogenetic relationships within this lineage is presented and hypotheses for the evolutionary origin of heteronomy in the Aphelinidae are discussed. Expand
Phylogenetics and classification of Chalcidoidea and Mymarommatoidea — a review of current concepts (Hymenoptera, Apocrita)
TLDR
Mymaridae are indicated as the likely sister group of all other Chalcidoidea by: two features of the ovipositor, the unique structure of a muscle between the mesofurca and axillary lever, and sequence data from the 28s rDNA gene. Expand
PHYLOGENY OF THE SUBFAMILIES OF THE FAMILY BRACONIDAE (HYMENOPTERA: ICHNEUMONOIDEA): A REASSESSMENT
Abstract— The recently published phylogeny of Braconidae by Quicke and van Achterberg is reassessed. Character‐state definitions and character polarities are evaluated, and more rigorous methods areExpand
Phylogeny and classification of the Signiphoridae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea)
  • J. Woolley
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Systematic entomology
  • 1 October 1988
TLDR
Four genera, Chartocerus, Thysanus, Clytina and Signiphora, are recognized within Signiphoridae based on synapomorphies, and three species groups, three of which are demonstrably monophyletic, are assigned to four species groups. Expand
Phylogenetic implications of the mesofurca and mesopostnotum in Hymenoptera
TLDR
Character systems based on internal structure of the mesothorax support recent hypotheses that suggest sawflies are paraphyletic with respect to Apocrita, and the distribution of character state changes is less informative than in Symphyta but provide evidence for relationships of some taxa. Expand
