Phelan, Thomas. A Field Guide to the Cidaroid Echinoids of the Northwestern Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea. Smithsonian Contributions to Zoology, 40:1-67. 1970.—Twelve species of cidaroid echinoids from the northwestern Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea are described, compared, illustrated, and keyed for identification. The first description of the denuded test of Histocidaris nuttingi Mortensen is presented. A lectotype and paralectotype are selected… 
Echinoderms from the lower Silurian Brassfield Formation of east-central Kentucky
Abstract. A new echinoderm fauna is reported from the Brassfield Formation (Rhuddanian, Silurian) of Bath County, Kentucky. The Brassfield Formation was the first extensive marine unit to be
Rediscovery and redescription of the smoothtooth blacktip shark, Carcharhinus leiodon (Carcharhinidae), from Kuwait, with notes on its possible conservation status
A detailed redescription of this species based on new material is provided, as well as the first information on fresh colouration, size range and maturity, and Sequences from two separate regions of the mitochondrial genome support the identity of C. leiodon as a distinct species.
Adapting a Floral Biogeography Model to Prairie-Dependent Lepidoptera
Analysis of data collected for a study of prairie dependent Lepidoptera in the northern prairies showed four distributional patterns, which can be used to predict the occurrence of species in yet, to,be discovered populations along the migration routes as well as explain their absence in other seem,ingly nearby localit ies.
Fish community diversity in a coastal zone at southeastern Gulf of California, Mexico
Although the southeast region of the Gulf of California has a high fish diversity, due to the high biological productivity, the coastal area of Nayarit has few studies in this regard. The main
A new species of the genus Scoliokona Kallies et Arita, 1998 (Lepidoptera: Sesiidae) from Bali, Indonesia with a catalogue of the genus
The genus Scoliokona was established for two species from the Philippines, one of which was described as a new [Kallies, Arita, 1998]. The authors selected Sura tetrapora Diakonoff, 1968 [“1967”] as
From Asian curiosity to eruptive American pest: Megacopta cribraria (Hemiptera: Plataspidae) and prospects for its biological control
Based on the available literature, the best option for an importation biological control program appears to be the platygastrid egg parasitoid Paratelenomus saccharalis (Dodd) because of its apparent host specificity, intimate biological linkages with M. cribraria, and wide geographic distribution in the Eastern Hemisphere.
Postfledging dispersal of red‐fronted parakeets (Cyanoramphus novaezelandiae) from a fenced mainland sanctuary
Translocations are an important tool for conserving species at risk of extinction from a range of threats. However, an understanding of the life history of many threatened species prior to
The Tetrapod Fossil Record from the Uppermost Maastrichtian of the Ibero-Armorican Island: An Integrative Review Based on the Outcrops of the Western Tremp Syncline (Aragón, Huesca Province, NE Spain)
The South-Pyrenean Basin (northeastern Spain) has yielded a rich and diverse record of Upper Cretaceous (uppermost Campanian−uppermost Maastrichtian) vertebrate fossils, including the remains of some
Divergence in a transoceanic circumtropical dragonfly on a remote island
The morphological and behavioural differences between the two populations suggests divergence is occurring, and the fact that P flavescens is the only species of dragonfly on Easter Island, suggests infrequent arrival of migrants arriving on the island, with resultant reduced genetic variation.
A new Pliensbachian elasmobranch (Vertebrata, Chondrichthyes) assemblage from Europe, and its contribution to the understanding of late Early Jurassic elasmobranch diversity and distributional patterns
Here we describe a new, previously unrecognized elasmobranch microfossil assemblage consisting of isolated dental material from late Pliensbachian marginal marine, near-shore deposits of Grimmen in


The Jepson Manual: Higher Plants of California
With contributions from two hundred botanists across North America, this is the most comprehensive resource and identification guide to nearly eight thousand varieties of native and naturalized California plants.
Taxonomy of the Carex lenticularis complex in eastern North America
Analysis of morphological data using histograms, clustering techniques, and principal components analysis indicate that both species are variable but monotypic in eastern North America.
The Names of Plants
The rules of botanical nomenclature: family names, generic names, species names, epithets commemorating people, geographical epithetets, categories below the rank of species, hybrids, synonymy and illegitimacy are explained.
Manual of the Plants of Colorado
One that the authors will refer to break the boredom in reading is choosing manual of the plants of colorado as the reading material.
