Insect herbivory within modern forests is greater than fossil localities.

Fossilized leaves provide the longest running record of hyperdiverse plant-insect herbivore associations. Reconstructions of these relationships over deep time indicate strong links between

Early evolution of beetles regulated by the end-Permian deforestation

This suite of analyses shows that Permian xylophagous beetles suffered a severe extinction during the EPME largely due to the collapse of forest ecosystems, resulting in an Early Triassic gap of xylophileous beetles.

Effects of soil abiotic factors and plant chemical defences on seed predation on sea fennel (Crithmum maritimum)

Variation in a few key soil macro- and micro-elements in coastal environments can exert an important influence on seed chemical defences in sea fennel, with potential consequences for interactions between seafennel and seed predators.

Insect and mite galls on land plants have a spotty but periodically rich and abundant fossil record of damage types (DTs), ichnotaxa, and informally described gall morphotypes. The earliest gall is


Numerical investigations of electron beam energy deposition into the gas medium of an excimer laser

In this paper, electron beam propagation in a dense gas medium is numerically investigated. All the main phenomena that determine electron beam behavior in a gas (scattering and energy losses of the
