Phylogeography and counter-intuitive inferences in island biogeography: evidence from morphometric markers in the mobile butterfly Maniola jurtina (Linnaeus) (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae).
Distribution of mobile organisms on near-continent islands is mainly shaped by factors operating over ecological rather geological time. However, the phylogeography of single species has theExpand

Using higher taxa as surrogates of species-level data in three Portuguese protected areas: a case study on Spheciformes (Hymenoptera)
Protected areas are the focus of most conservation efforts worldwide. Despite vast amount of investment in protected areas, biodiversity loss continues. This has led to increasing efforts to developExpand

Assessment of Ceratitis capitata (Diptera, Tephritidae) pupae killed by heat or cold as hosts for rearing Spalangia cameroni (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae)
In this work, we study the suitability of using dead medfly Ceratitis capitata pupae, killed by heat- or cold-shock, for the mass rearing of Spalangia cameroni, a pupal parasitoid of key pests. 100%Expand

Superparasitism in Laboratory rearing of Spalangia cameroni (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), a parasitoid of medfly (Diptera: Tephritidae)
Abstract The frequency of superparasitism and its effects on the quality of laboratory-reared Spalangia cameroni (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae) parasitoids were investigated under laboratory conditions.Expand

Conservation of European environments: The Spheciformes wasps as biodiversity indicators (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Ampulicidae, Sphecidae and Crabronidae)
The aim of this work is to propose the use of the Spheciformes wasps (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Ampulicidae, Sphecidae and Crabronidae) as indicators of European biodiversity. One advantage of studyingExpand

Diversity and Biogeographical Significance of Solitary Wasps (Chrysididae, Eumeninae, and Spheciformes) at the Arribes del Duero Natural Park, Spain: Their Importance for Insect Diversity
ABSTRACT Between 1997 and 2005, a study was made of the Chrysididae, Eumeninae, and Spheciformes wasps in the Arribes del Duero Natural Park (Provinces of Salamanca and Zamora, western Spain), aExpand

Observations on the winter aggregates of two polistine paper wasps (Hymenoptera Vespidae Polistinae)
Winter aggregates of Polistes versicolor (Olivier 1791) and P. ferreri (de Saussure 1853) were studied to determine the frequency and timing at which exits and returns of wasps occurred. SpecialExpand

Analyzing Insect Community Structure through the Application of Taxonomic Distinctness Measures
Taxonomic distinctness measures were initially developed as a way to assess aspects related to taxonomic and functional differences among species forming communities which are not usually taken intoExpand
