TLDR
The data presented in this paper, measuring the amount of premating reproductive isolation among the four species in "malechoice" experiments, provide basis for the interpretation of phylogenetic relationships of these species.
Mating behavior of Mediterranean fruit flies (Diptera : Tephritidae) in a natural environment)
Systematic quantitative observations of the mating behavior of wild Mediterranean fruit flies, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) were made in a semi-isolated orchard in Kula, Maui, Hawaii. Matings

  • 1 May 1980
TLDR
This paper elaborates the hypothesis proposed by Kaneshiro (1976) and proposes a uni-directional phylogeny for the six populations of the grimshawi complex of species.
Arthropod Surveys on Palmyra Atoll, Line Islands, and Insights into the Decline of the Native Tree Pisonia grandis (Nyctaginaceae)1
TLDR
Because of the unique properties of Pisonia grandis forest on oceanic atolls, its importance for nesting seabirds, and its alarming global decline, immediate conservation efforts should be directed at controlling introduced Hemiptera and disrupting their mutualisms with nonnative ants on Palmyra Atoll.
Evolution of sexual dimorphism in the olfactory brain of Hawaiian Drosophila
TLDR
It is suggested that a defined set of glomeruli in Drosophila can enlarge in response to sex–determination genetic signals, the mutations of which may result in species differences in sexual dimorphism of the brain.
Flavobacterium akiainvivens sp. nov., from decaying wood of Wikstroemia oahuensis, Hawai'i, and emended description of the genus Flavobacterium.
TLDR
On the basis of distance from its nearest phylogenetic neighbours and phenotypic differences, the species Flavobacterium akiainvivens sp.
Sperm Attractant in the Micropyle Region of Fish and Insect Eggs1
TLDR
Although fertilization in fish (flounder) is possible after removal of this substance, its absence makes fertilization inefficient, as reflected by a drastic reduction in fertilization rate.
DROSOPHILA OF HAWAII: SYSTEMATICS AND ECOLOGICAL GENETICS!
TLDR
Indications suggest that the Hawaiian archipelago, or at least its present major islands, is now and always has been isolated by more than 3500 kilometers of unbroken ocean from any other continent or island group.
Lek behavior of the oriental fruit fly,Dacus dorsalis, in Hawaii (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
Field observations on the mating behavior of the oriental fruit fly, Dacus dorsalis Hendel are presented, showing that decreasing light intensity stimulates sexual activities, and mating behavior is confined to the 2to 3-h period immediately preceding sunset.
