300 million years of diversification: elucidating the patterns of orthopteran evolution based on comprehensive taxon and gene sampling
Orthoptera is the most diverse order among the polyneopteran groups and includes familiar insects, such as grasshoppers, crickets, katydids, and their kin. Due to a long history of conflictingExpand

Phylogeny and the evolution of acoustic communication in extant Ensifera (Insecta, Orthoptera)
Ensifera present an appropriate and interesting model for the study of acoustic communication, because of their diverse signal and communication modalities, and due to their accessibility for fieldExpand

The earliest known holometabolous insects
The Eumetabola (Endopterygota (also known as Holometabola) plus Paraneoptera) have the highest number of species of any clade, and greatly contribute to animal species biodiversity. TheExpand

Laying the foundations of evolutionary and systematic studies in crickets (Insecta, Orthoptera): a multilocus phylogenetic analysis
Orthoptera have been used for decades for numerous evolutionary questions but several of its constituent groups, notably crickets, still suffer from a lack of a robust phylogenetic hypothesis. WeExpand

Older than New Caledonia emergence? A molecular phylogenetic study of the eneopterine crickets (Orthoptera: Grylloidea)
Aim  A New Caledonian insect group was studied in a world-wide phylogenetic context to test: (1) whether local or regional island clades are older than 37 Ma, the postulated re-emergence time of NewExpand

Nomenclatural and taxonomic problems related to the electronic publication of new nomina and nomenclatural acts in zoology, with brief comments on optical discs and on the situation in botany.
In zoological nomenclature, to be potentially valid, nomenclatural novelties (i.e., new nomina and nomenclatural acts) need first to be made available, that is, published in works qualifying asExpand

Phylogenetics and Ecology: As Many Characters as Possible Should Be Included in the Cladistic Analysis 1
As many data as possible must be included in any scientific analysis, provided that they follow the logical principles on which this analysis is based. Phylogenetic analysis is based on the basicExpand
