Evolution of lacewings and allied orders using anchored phylogenomics (Neuroptera, Megaloptera, Raphidioptera)
Analysis of anchored hybrid enrichment (AHE) data under a variety of analytical parameters recovered a well‐resolved and strongly supported tree for the higher phylogeny of Neuropterida that is highly concordant with previous estimates based on DNA sequence data. Expand
Mitochondrial phylogenomics illuminates the evolutionary history of Neuropterida
A robust, fully resolved phylogeny and divergence time estimation for Neuropterida is presented with strong statistical support for almost all nodes and competing hypotheses regarding the life style of early neuropteridan larvae as either aquatic or terrestrial are evaluated. Expand
The First Mitochondrial Genomes of Antlion (Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae) and Split-footed Lacewing (Neuroptera: Nymphidae), with Phylogenetic Implications of Myrmeleontiformia
A phylogenetic analysis based on the mt genomic data for all Neuropterida sequenced thus far, supports the monophyly of Myrmeleontiformia and the sister relationship between Ascalaphidae and Myr meleontidae. Expand
Dynamic economic dispatch of a microgrid: Mathematical models and solution algorithm
Abstract Dynamic economic dispatch of a microgrid is better suited to the requirements of a system in actual operation because it not only considers the lowest cost in a scheduling cycle but alsoExpand
The First Mitochondrial Genome for the Fishfly Subfamily Chauliodinae and Implications for the Higher Phylogeny of Megaloptera
Both maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analyses highly support the monophyly of Megaloptera, which was recovered as the sister of Neuroptera in a phylogenomic analysis carried out based on the mt genomic sequences of 13 mt protein-coding genes and two rRNA genes of nine Neuropterida species.

The phylogeny of brown lacewings (Neuroptera: Hemerobiidae) reveals multiple reductions in wing venation
The phylogenetic hypothesis and divergence times analysis suggest that extant hemerobiids originated around the end of the Triassic and evolved as three distinct clades that diverged from one another during the Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among tribes of the green lacewing subfamily Chrysopinae recovered based on mitochondrial phylogenomics
The results suggest that Chrysopinae sans Nothancyla verreauxi evolved as two reciprocally monophyletic lineages formed by stem members of the tribes Leucochrysini plus Belonopterygini on one hand, and the stemMembers of Ankylopterychini plus Chrysopini on the other. Expand
A new genus of mantidflies discovered in the Oriental region, with a higher‐level phylogeny of Mantispidae (Neuroptera) using DNA sequences and morphology
A remarkable new genus and two new species of Mantispidae (Neuroptera) are described from the Oriental region. Allomantispa Liu, Wu, Winterton & Ohl gen.n., currently including A. tibetana Liu, Wu &Expand
Is diversification in male reproductive traits driven by evolutionary trade-offs between weapons and nuptial gifts?
It is shown that male accessory gland size strongly correlates withnuptial gift size and that when male weapons are large, nuptial gifts are small and vice versa, which supports the potential explanation that the trade-off in resource allocation between weapons and nuptIAL gifts is important in driving the diversity of male mating strategies seen in the dobsonflies.

Progress on monitoring and control of the codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.)
The codling moth Cydia pomonella (L.) is a notorious invasive pest that causes severe damage to global apple crops with the proportion of fruit damaged on apple and other fruit trees often reachingExpand
