Despite rapid progress in recent years using molecular approaches, phytoplasmas remain the least well studied group of plant pathogens, making them a “crouching tiger” disease threat.
Insects ‘Down Under’– Diversity, endemism and evolution of the Australian insect fauna: examples from select orders
An overview of the size of the fauna, relationships, levels of endemism, origins and its evolution of Australian insect diversity is provided, focusing on six groups, the Thysanoptera and the five megadiverse orders Hemiptera, Coleoptera, Diptera, LepidopterA and Hymenoptera.

Restoration of a forest ecosystem: The effects of vegetation and dispersal capabilities on the reassembly of plant-dwelling arthropods
Insect pests and insect-vectored diseases of palms.
Re-examine the disease aetiologies and procedures that have been used to understand causality and insect pests that attack palms, pathogens the insects vector as well as other disorders that are associated with these pests.
First records of the genus Hishimonus Ishihara from Thailand (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Deltocephalinae: Opsiini) including description of three new species.
Seven species of Hishimonus Ishihara are recorded in Thailand, four of which were previously recorded from neighbouring countries and three new species described herein, which represent the first records of the genus Hischimonus in that country.
Morphology of the antennal sensilla in four Australian spittlebug species (Hemiptera: Cercopidae) with implications for phylogeny
The antennal sense organs of four Australian spittlebugs, Aufidus trifasciatus Stal, Euryaulax carnifex (Fabricius), Petyllis deprivata (Walker) and Tonnoiria tasmaniae Lallemand (Hemiptera:…
Morphological and DNA barcode species identifications of leafhoppers, planthoppers and treehoppers (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha)at Barrow Island.
Vector status of three leafhopper species for Australian lucerne yellows phytoplasma
Findings suggest O. argentatus is a vector of the ALuY pathogen and A. torrida is a vectors of the tomato big bud (TBB) phytoplasma.
The current distribution and geographical origin of the scale insect pest Ceroplastes sinensis (Hemiptera: Coccidae)
A novel and cost-effective approach using cladistic estimates is demonstrated to determine the place of its origin and predicts a native range for C. sinensis within Central or South America.
