The beetle fauna of Dominica, Lesser Antilles (Insecta: Coleoptera): Diversity and distribution
The distributional patterns of the species shared with Dominica and elsewhere in the Caribbean suggest stages in a dynamic taxon cycle of species origin, range expansion, distribution contraction, and re-speciation. Expand
A New Species of the Genus Homocloeus Jordan (Coleoptera: Anthribidae) in Miocene Mexican Amber
Abstract —A new species, Homocloeuspopovi sp. nov., is described from Miocene Mexican amber. The new species is similar to H. puncticollis but differs in having the rostrum without a middle carina,Expand
8382 New records of weevils ( Coleoptera : Curculionoidea ) from Mona Island , Puerto
An inventory of the weevil fauna of Mona Island, Puerto Rico, is provided. Sixteen new records and 5-9 new species are reported, yielding a total of 28 species of Curculionoidea for the island. TheExpand

0212. A summary of the endemic beetle genera of the West Indies (Insecta: Coleoptera); bioindicators of the evolutionary richness of this Neotropical archipelago
The Caribbean Islands (or the West Indies) are recognized as one of the leading global biodiversity hot spots. This is based on data on species, genus, and family diversity for vascular plants andExpand

The Anthribidae of the Seychelles and Mascarene Islands: taxonomy, keys, and a bibliographic catalogue (Coleoptera)
All Seychelles and Mascarene taxa are discussed. Two subfamilies, eight tribes, and 28 genera are keyed. Xenoderes, new genus, is proposed for Homoeodera snelli Jordon, 1924. New generic synonymsExpand
Insects of the Cayman Islands
Outnumbering all other species of organisms by at least six to one, insects in their abundance and diversity are unsurpassed. To compress an account of the entomofauna of even a relatively small areaExpand
The purpose of "Insectae Portoricensis" was to give the records of all the insects (economic or otherwise, but especially and in considerable detail the notes concerning those of economic importance)Expand
The Song of the Dodo: Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinctions
Over the past eight years, David Quammen has followed its threads on a globe-circling journey of discovery, and the result is The Song of the Dodo, a wake-up call to the age of extinctions. Expand
