Evidence for Carboniferous origin of the order Mantodea (Insecta: Dictyoptera) gained from forewing morphology
Homologies of the forewing venation pattern of the order Mantodea (Insecta: Dictyoptera) consistent with the accepted insect wing venation groundplan are proposed. A comparative morphologicalExpand

Venation pattern and revision of Orthoptera sensu nov. and sister groups. Phylogeny of Palaeozoic and Mesozoic Orthoptera sensu nov.
After the revision of several fossils and observations of recent taxa, we propose a new interpretation of the wing venation pattern for the ‘orthopteroid lineage’. The Orthoptera and several taxaExpand

Groundplan, nomenclature, homology, phylogeny, and the question of the insect wing venation pattern
The debate on the homologization of the wing venation of Orthoptera and some stem-Orthoptera is connected to the question of insect wing venation groundplan. This broader topic can be seen as theExpand

Cnemidolestodea (Insecta): An ancient order reinstated
Synopsis The insect orders Caloneurodea, Titanoptera and Mantophasmatodea are restored (contra Hamilton 2003). The fossil insect order Cnemidolestodea Handlirsch, 1937 is redefined. Its definition,Expand

Earliest Evidence of Insect Endophytic Oviposition
Abstract The knowledge of fossil plant-insect interactions is almost entirely restricted to evidences of feeding behavior. Records of endophytic oviposition are relatively scarce, with previousExpand

At last, a Pennsylvanian stem-stonefly (Plecoptera) discovered
BackgroundStem-relatives of many winged insect orders have been identified among Pennsylvanian fossils (Carboniferous Period). Owing to their presumed 'basal' position in insect phylogeny, stonefliesExpand

A first higher-level time-calibrated phylogeny of antlions (Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae).
In this study, we reconstruct the first time-calibrated phylogeny of the iconic antlion family, the Myrmeleontidae (Neuroptera: Myrmeleontiformia). We use maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference toExpand

New Data on Homocladus grandis, A Permian Stem-Mantodean (Polyneoptera: Dictyoptera)
Abstract Representatives of the family Strephocladidae have been considered as fossil relatives (i.e., stem-group) of Mantodea (mantises) based on characters of the forewing morphology. Here weExpand

An integrative phylogenomic approach illuminates the evolutionary history of cockroaches and termites (Blattodea)
Phylogenetic relationships among subgroups of cockroaches and termites are still matters of debate. Their divergence times and major phenotypic transitions during evolution are also not yet settled.Expand

A passivity-based controller for coordination of converters in a fuel cell system
The problem of converters coordination of a fuel cell system involving a hydrogen fuel cell with supercapacitors for applications with high instantaneous dynamic power is addressed in this paper. TheExpand
