Phylogeny of carabid beetles as inferred from 18S ribosomal DNA (Coleoptera: Carabidae)
The phylogeny of carabid tribes is examined with sequences of 18S ribosomal DNA from eighty‐four carabids representing forty‐seven tribes, and fifteen outgroup taxa. Parsimony, distance and maximumExpand

  • 1 August 2002
The carabid subfamily Harpalinae contains most of the species of carabid beetles. This subfamily, with over 19,000 species, radiated in the Cretaceous to yield a large clade that is diverse inExpand

Monophyly of terrestrial adephagan beetles as indicated by three nuclear genes (Coleoptera: Carabidae and Trachypachidae)
The beetle suborder Adephaga is traditionally divided into two sections on the basis of habitat, terrestrial Geadephaga and aquatic Hydradephaga. Monophyly of both groups is uncertain, and theExpand

The roles of wingless and decapentaplegic in axis and appendage development in the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum.
Axis patterning and appendage development have been well studied in Drosophila melanogaster, a species in which both limb and segment morphogenesis are derived. In Drosophila, positional informationExpand

Opinions on multiple sequence alignment, and an empirical comparison of repeatability and accuracy between POY and structural alignment.
An extensive literature, special symposia, and even a formal organization (International Society for Phylogenetic Nomenclature) have been devoted to various other taxonomic proposals some of whichExpand

Hypothesis testing in evolutionary developmental biology: a case study from insect wings.
Developmental data have the potential to give novel insights into morphological evolution. Because developmental data are time-consuming to obtain, support for hypotheses often rests on data fromExpand

Phylogenetic diversification patterns and divergence times in ground beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Harpalinae)
BackgroundHarpalinae is a species rich clade of carabid beetles with many unusual morphological forms and ecological interactions. How this diversity evolved has been difficult to reconstruct,Expand

Phylogeny of minute carabid beetles and their relatives based upon DNA sequence data (Coleoptera, Carabidae, Trechitae)
Abstract The phylogeny of ground beetles of supertribe Trechitae is inferred using DNA sequences of genes that code for 28S ribosomal RNA, 18S ribosomal RNA, and wingless. Within the outgroups,Expand

Phylogenetic Relationships of Tribes Within Harpalinae (Coleoptera: Carabidae) as Inferred from 28S Ribosomal DNA and the Wingless Gene
Abstract Harpalinae is a large, monophyletic subfamily of carabid ground beetles containing more than 19,000 species in approximately 40 tribes. The higher level phylogenetic relationships withinExpand

Design for ground beetle abundance and diversity sampling within the National Ecological Observatory Network
The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) will monitor ground beetle populations across a network of broadly distributed sites because beetles are prevalent in food webs, are sensitive toExpand
