Weevils, weevils, weevils everywhere*
TLDR
The evolutionary history of weevils is mapped as a sequence of key evolutionary innovations that together have led to the phenomenal diversification and success ofWeevils. Expand
Resource partitioning in the carrion beetle (Co1eoptera:Silphidae) fauna of southern Ontario: ecological and evolutionary considerations
TLDR
In the Silphidae, competition for food resources appears to be the primary factor inducing ecological character displacement, and the possible origins of patterns of resource use in this assemblage are discussed in an ecological and geological time framework. Expand
The mitochondrial genome is large and variable in a family of plants (Cucurbitaceae)
TLDR
The possible evolutionary mechanisms by which the mitochondrial genome has grown within the cucurbit family is considered and the possible reasons for the existance of a seven to eight-fold range in mitochondrial genome size among such closely related species are considered. Expand
WEEVILS AND PLANTS: PHYLOGENETIC VERSUS ECOLOGICAL MEDIATION OF EVOLUTION OF HOST PLANT ASSOCIATIONS IN CURCULIONINAE (COLEOPTERA: CURCULIONIDAE)
TLDR
General applications of these results include biological control, pollination biology, conservation and restoration biology, and use of patterns in insect – host plant associations to resolve problems in plant classification. Expand
Leaf litter inhabiting beetles as surrogates for establishing priorities for conservation of selected tropical montane cloud forests in Honduras, Central America (Coleoptera; Staphylinidae,
TLDR
Thirteen tropical montane cloud forests in Honduras and adjacent El Salvador were evaluated for species diversity and endemism in leaf litter inhabiting Curculionidae and Staphylinidae in June and August of 1994, finding the latter to be the best method for establishing conservation priorities in TMCF.
