Differentiation of Czech wines using multielement composition – A comparison with vineyard soil
Abstract Chemical compositions of wines and soil extracts from six viticulture areas of the Czech Republic were examined using statistical multivariate analyses – principal component analysis, factorExpand
Annotated catalogue of Enicocephalomorpha, Dipsocoromorpha, Nepomorpha, Gerromorpha, and Leptopodomorpha (Hemiptera: Heteroptera) of Turkey, with new records
The nomenclatoric history of Alpagut Kiyak, 1995 is reviewed, its gender is fixed, and two new combinations are proposed: AlPagut maroccanus (Wagner, 1960) comb. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of trypanosomatids parasitising true bugs (Insecta: Heteroptera) in sub-Saharan Africa.
Finding the same typing units in hosts belonging to different heteropteran families and coming from different continents strongly indicates that the global diversity of the insect trypanosomatids is most likely lower than was predicted on the basis of the "one host-one parasite" paradigm. Expand
First record of the invasive western conifer seed bug Leptoglossus occidentalis (Heteroptera: Coreidae) in Turkey
This study reports identification characters of the species, its host plants, details about its biology and a map of its most recent distribution throughout Europe. Expand
New and interesting records of true bugs (Hemiptera:Heteroptera) from the Czech Republic and Slovakia V
The number of true bug species recorded reaches 869 in the Czech Republic (762 in Bohemia and 810 in Moravia) and 850 in Slovakia. Expand
Probing into the diversity of trypanosomatid flagellates parasitizing insect hosts in South-West China reveals both endemism and global dispersal.
Phylogenetic analysis revealed the presence of a new Phytomonas species, which is the first documentation of this potentially pathogenic dixenous parasite of plants in China, and disprove the "one host - one parasite" paradigm. Expand
Host-specificity of Monoxenous Trypanosomatids: Statistical Analysis of the Distribution and Transmission Patterns of the Parasites from Neotropical Heteroptera.
Results show that the specificity of trypanosomatid-heteropteran associations is not very strict: parasites seem to be transmissible between different host groups within the same niche and predatory hosts may acquire parasites from their prey. Expand
A contribution to the faunistics of aquatic and semiaquatic bugs (Heteroptera: Nepomorpha, Gerromorpha) in Portugal, with the review of biology of the Nearctic corixid Trichocorixa verticalis
Several small samples of aquatic and semiaquatic bugs (Heteroptera: Nepomorpha, Gerromorpha) collected mainly in southern Portugal in 2004 were examined. Altogether 20 species were identified,Expand
