New Caledonia must be considered as a very old Darwinian island, a concept that offers many more fascinating opportunities of study, as it is contradicted by geological evidence indicating long Palaeocene and Eocene submersions and by recent biogeographic and phylogenetic studies.

The authors' datings suggest that crown-Dictyoptera—and stem-mantises—would date back to the Late Carboniferous, a result compatible with the oldest putative fossil of stem-dictyopteran suborders, and suggests a scenario of replacement in carnivory among polyneopterous insects.
The phylogeny of cockroach families: a cladistic appraisal of morpho-anatomical data
- P. Grandcolas
- 1 March 1996
Seventy-two morpho-anatomical characters were examined in 221 genera belonging to the families Blattidae, Polyphagidae, Blattellidae, and Blaberidae and it was necessary to elevate the Anaplectinae and Pseudophyll...

Taxonomic bias in biodiversity data and societal preferences

Results show that societal preferences, rather than research activity, strongly correlate with taxonomic bias, which lead to assert that scientists should advertise less charismatic species and develop societal initiatives (e.g. citizen science) that specifically target neglected organisms.
Evolution on a shaky piece of Gondwana: is local endemism recent in New Caledonia?
A molecular phylogenetic approach is used to answer the question of whether the diversification of the Neocaledonian cockroach genus Angustonicus belonging to the subfamily Tryonicinae from Australia and New Caledonia is less than two million years old or recent diversifications after Tertiary geological catastrophic events.

Biodiversity Sampling Using a Global Acoustic Approach: Contrasting Sites with Microendemics in New Caledonia
The hypothesis that global acoustic analyses can detect acoustic differences between sites with similar species richness and similar ecological context, but with different species assemblages is supported.
