Beach nourishment: an ecologically sound coastal defence alternative? A review
Even though beach nouiishmeilt is generally considered as an environment-friendly option for coastal protection and beach restoration, sizeable impacts on several beach ecosystem con~ponentsExpand
Nationwide inventory of mosquito biodiversity (Diptera: Culicidae) in Belgium, Europe
Results of this first country-wide inventory of the Culicidae in Belgium may serve as a basis for risk assessment of emerging mosquito-borne diseases and support the choice of the trap type. Expand
The Belgian sandy beach ecosystem: a review
This paper reviews the available knowledge on sedimentology, hydrodynamics and five major ecosystem components (microphytobenthos, vascular plants, terrestrial arthropods, zoobenthos, and avifauna)Expand
Space heterogeneity, space use and short-range dispersal in Diptera: A case study
Habitat fragmentation and heterogeneity lead to opposite patterns in chironomid distribution: some species disperse over the whole set of macrohabitats but others are confined to a single patch, resulting in population isolation. Expand
Toxicological data and growth characteristics of single post-feeding larvae and puparia of Calliphora vicina (Diptera: Calliphoridae) obtained from a controlled nordiazepam study
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report describing the presence of nordiazepam and its metabolite, oxazepam, in single Calliphora vicina larvae and puparia. Expand
Revision of the genus Elaphropeza Macquart (Diptera: Hybotidae) from the Oriental Region, with a special attention to the fauna of Singapore
The genus Elaphropeza Macquart from the Oriental region is revised, with 51 new species described and illustrated and some interesting morphological features and phenology of the species are discussed. Expand
Web-building spiders and blood-feeding flies as prey of the notch-eared bat (Myotis emarginatus)
The analysis of the diet of three colonies in southern Belgium revealed spatial and seasonal variations of the diets of the notch-eared bat and the populations of these two ectoparasitic flies are sensitive to the use of antiparasite drugs. Expand
Eothalassius, a new genus of parathalassiine flies (Diptera: Empidoidea: Dolichopodidae) from Southeast Asia and Papua New Guinea
A new genus of parathalassiine-like flies, Eothalassius gen. n., and two new species, Eothalassius platypalpus sp. n. (type species), E. gracilis sp. n., are described from the coasts of SoutheastExpand
Dolichopodidae (Diptera) from Papua New Guinea. XIV. Paramedetera, a new genus in the Medeterinae
Paramedetera, gen. nov., is closely allied to MedeterA, but is a more ancestral branch that is phylogenetically situated between on one hand Corindia and Thrypticus and on the other hand Medetera and Dolichophorus. Expand
