Odonata enter the biodiversity crisis debate: The first global assessment of an insect group
The first global assessment of an insect order (Odonata) provides new context to the ongoing discussion of current biodiversity loss and finds that one in 10 species of dragonflies and damselflies is threatened with extinction.
Species diversity of Odonata in selected areas of Buru-un, Iligan City and Tubod, Lanao del Norte, Philippines.
The species diversity of Odonata in Buru-un, Iligan City and Tubod, Lanao del Norte, Philippines is determined and Trithemis aurora, an oriental species, was the most abundant species.
Annotated list of tiger beetles (Coleoptera, Cicindelidae) in Calanasan, Apayao Province, Luzon, Philippines
The forests of Apayao Province are one of the remaining and relatively unexplored areas in the Philippines. With the aim to make Calanasan in Apayao province a UNESCO biosphere reserve as a mechanism
Complex inter-island colonization and peripatric founder speciation promote diversification of flightless Pachyrhynchus weevils in the Taiwan–Luzon volcanic belt
The non-linear, more complex spatial and temporal settings of the archipelago and stochastic dispersal were probable key factors shaping the colonization history of the P. orbifer complex, indicating that peripatric speciation through the founders of stochastically dispersals was the major evolutionary driver.
DNA barcodes for dragonflies and damselflies (Odonata) of Mindanao, Philippines
The numerous islands of the Philippine archipelago may have facilitated rapid speciation in the Odonata and resulted in low interspecific sequence divergences among closely related groups of species.
Hopping out of Mindanao: Miocene‐Pliocene geological processes and cross‐island dispersal as major drivers of diversity for Philippine treehoppers
The first invertebrate study to support the hypothesis that Miocene–Pliocene geological events and consequent cross-island dispersal were pivotal promoters of species diversity in the Philippines is supported.
Mitochondrial genome of a flashwing demoiselle, Vestalis melania from the Philippine Archipelago
The first complete mitochondrial genome of a demoiselle, Vestalis melania (Odonata, Zygoptera, Calopterygidae), is determined using long-range PCR and a primer walking approach and is the largest mitogenome of all available odonates, mainly because of its long A + T-rich region.
A synopsis of the genus Rhinagrion with description of two new species from the Philippines (Odonata: Megapodagrionidae)
A synopsis is given of the knowledge of the genus Rhinagrion and the males of two new species from the Philippines, and a key to the males is given and the distribution of all species is discussed and maps are provided.
Review of the Philippine taxa formerly assigned to the genus Amphicnemis Selys, II. Genus Sangabasis with descriptions of eight new species (Odonata: Coenagrionidae).
The Philippine genus Sangabasis Villanueva is reviewed. Eight new species are described: S. bukid sp. nov., S. bulba sp. nov., S. cahilogi sp. nov., S. carmelae sp. nov., S. feliculoi sp. nov., S.
Odonata recorded in February 2012 in Isabela and Aurora Provinces, Luzon Island and Polillo Island, Philippines
In February 2012, Odonata were recorded and voucher specimens collected in Luzon, The Philippines. The focus of study was set on localities near Dinapigue and San Mariano (Isabela Province), sites in
