CONTRIBUTION TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HARVESTMEN (ARACHNIDA: OPILIONES) OF ALBANIA
TLDR
The opilionid fauna of Albania is still poorly known and in the entire literature on this topic from the territory of this country are recorded 31 species, some of which have vague taxonomic status or need confirmation.
A new species of Lacinius in amber (Arachnida: Opiliones)
TLDR
The new specimen reveals pedipalpal apophyses on both the patella and the tibia, features which can now confirm in the Bitterfeld fossil too, and justifies a new, extinct species of Lacinius bizleyi sp.
Fossil harvestmen (Arachnida, Opiliones) from Bitterfeld amber
TLDR
Bitterfeld material includes the fi rst fossil record of the extant genera Amilenus Martens, 1969 and Lacinius Th orell, 1876 respectively, and support the idea that both ambers sampled a similar terrestrial arthropod fauna: irrespective of any diff erence in age.
ECOLOGICAL PROFILES OF HARVESTMEN (ARACHNIDA, OPILIONES) FROM VITOSHA MOUNTAIN (BULGARIA): A MIXED MODELLING APPROACH USING GAMS
TLDR
The modelled ecological profiles revealed that the elevation contributes the most to the ecological characterization of the Vitosha harvestmen species, followed by the habitat type and moisture regime of the sampling localities.
The first fossil cyphophthalmid harvestman from Baltic amber
TLDR
The first fossil cyphophthalmid harvestman from Palaeogene (Eocene) Baltic amber is described and resembles modern North American Siro species more than modern European ones, and can be distinguished principally on its relatively large size and the outline form of the body.
A new anophthalmous species of Paranemastoma from Bulgaria (Opiliones: Nemastomatidae)
TLDR
A character combination of the form of the penis, the shape of the pedipalps and absence of scutum armament, distinguish the new species of harvestman from all other Paranemastoma species.
New fossil harvestmen (Arachnida: Opiliones) in the Hoffeins amber collection
Spatial Niches of Opiliones (Arachnida) from Vitosha Mountains, Bulgaria
TLDR
A comparative analysis of niche dimensions revealed specific guilds of harvestmen species, which might be an important feature for avoiding or reducing the interspecific competition.
Opiliones (Arachnida) from the Southern Dobrudzha (NE Bulgaria) and its adjacent regions
The opilionid fauna of Dobrudzha is not well studied, and Northern and Southern Dobrudzha have not been studied equally. For example, only 15 species have been reported from Northern Dobrudzha, while
Hysteretic pinching of human secondary osteons subjected to torsion.
TLDR
The ultra-structural characteristics of human femoral tissue responsible for energy absorption of secondary osteons under mechanical loading are explored and a novel mathematical interpretation of single osteon mechanics elucidates the behavior of the collagen-apatite interface.
