DNA Barcoding for Community Ecology - How to Tackle a Hyperdiverse, Mostly Undescribed Melanesian Fauna
Background Trigonopterus weevils are widely distributed throughout Melanesia and hyperdiverse in New Guinea. They are a dominant feature in natural forests, with narrow altitudinal zonation. TheirExpand
One hundred and one new species of Trigonopterus weevils from New Guinea
Abstract A species discovery and description pipeline to accelerate and improve taxonomy is outlined, relying on concise expert descriptions, combined with DNA sequencing, digital imaging, andExpand
New Guinea highland wild dogs are the original New Guinea singing dogs
Significance New Guinea singing dogs (NGSD) are distinctive among the Canidae because of their unique and characteristic vocalization, isolated habitat, and status as a rare representative of wildExpand
Australasian sky islands act as a diversity pump facilitating peripheral speciation and complex reversal from narrow endemic to widespread ecological supertramp
The Australasian archipelago is biologically extremely diverse as a result of a highly puzzling geological and biological evolution. Unveiling the underlying mechanisms has never been more attainableExpand
Introduction of the Exocelina ekari-group with descriptions of 22 new species from New Guinea (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae, Copelatinae)
Abstract The Exocelina ekari-group is here introduced and defined mainly on the basis of a discontinuous outline of the median lobe of the aedeagus. The group is known only from New Guinea (IndonesiaExpand
Two new species of the Exocelina ekari group from New Guinea with strongly modified male antennae (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae, Copelatinae)
Abstract Two new species of the genus Exocelina Broun, 1886: E. athesphatossp. nov. and E. tsingasp. nov. are described from New Guinea and placed into the E. ekari group based on the structure ofExpand
Nine new species groups, 15 new species, and one new subspecies of New Guinea diving beetles of the genus Exocelina Broun, 1886 (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae, Copelatinae)
Abstract Nine new species groups of Exocelina Broun, 1886 from New Guinea are introduced with keys to their representatives. Four groups are monotypic and include three new species: the E. aipomekExpand
Three new species of Exocelina Broun, 1886 from the southern slopes of the New Guinea central range, with introduction of the Exocelina skalei group (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae, Copelatinae)
Abstract Three new species of the genus Exocelina Broun, 1886: E. brazzasp. nov., E. amabilissp. nov. and E. mimikasp. nov. are described from New Guinea. The former two species are placed into theExpand
New Guinean orogenic dynamics and biota evolution revealed using a custom geospatial analysis pipeline
Background The New Guinean archipelago has been shaped by millions of years of plate tectonic activity combined with long-term fluctuations in climate and sea level. These processes combined with NewExpand
Seven new species of the Exocelina ekari group from New Guinea central and coastal mountains (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae, Copelatinae)
Abstract Seven new species of the genus Exocelina Broun, 1886 are described from three different mountain ranges of New Guinea: E. fojasp. nov., E. riberaisp. nov., E. apisteftisp. nov., and E.Expand
