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.
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.
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.
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.
