  author={Battal Çıplak and Klaus‐Gerhard Heller},
  journal={European Journal of Endocrinology},
The species of the Isophya major-group (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae: Phaneropterinae), are reviewed. I. major Brunner von Wattenwyl and I. mavromoustakisi Uvarov are redescribed. Two new species are described; Isophya mersinensis Sevgili & Ciplak sp. n. and Isophya salmani Sevgili & Heller sp. n. from south Anatolia. Illustrations of morphology and male calling song are pro- vided and a detailed comparison of the four species in the group is presented. We conclude that these four species… 
Re-evaluation of the genus Phonochorion (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae: Phaneropterinae)
Song structure and morphological characters clearly indicate Ph. uvarovi to be the basal taxon within the genus Phonochorion and to be most closely related to Polysarcus zacharovi and the Poecilimon heroicus-group.
Isophya nagyi, a new phaneropterid bush-cricket (Orthoptera: Tettigonioidea) from the Eastern Carpathians (Caliman Mountains, North Romania)
This study describes Isophya nagyi sp. n. from the Caliman Mountains (Eastern Carpathians, Romania). This species was discovered on the basis of the special rhythmic pattern of its male calling song.
Taxonomy of the genus Isophya (Orthoptera, Phaneropteridae, Barbitistinae): comparison of karyological and morphological data.
Cytogenetic analysis revealed some changes reflecting the level of genomic organization of the genus Isophya, and the results suggest some association of related taxa from biogeographic regions.
Taxonomic revision of the Hydroporus bodemeyeri species complex (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae) with a geometric morphometric analysis of body shape within the group
A geometric morphometric analysis of body shape within the eastern Mediterranean Hydroporus bodemeyeri species complex is presented, which confirms the separate status of all recognized taxa, with considerable overlapping between the subspecies of H. anatolicus and H. cuprescens.
Isophya sicula sp. n. (Orthoptera: Tettigonioidea), a new, morphologically cryptic bush-cricket species from the Eastern Carpathians (Romania) recognized from its peculiar male calling song
The morphology and pair-forming acoustic signals of Isophya sicula sp. n., a new phaneropterine bush-cricket species from the Eastern Carpathians (Romania) is described. The species is
A New Species of the Genus Pterodichopetala (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae: Phaneropterinae) from Northeastern Mexico
Anew species of Phaneropterinae from northeastern Mexico, Pterodichopetala alfredoi n.
The Anatolio‐Balkan phylogeographic fault: a snapshot from the genus Isophya (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae)
Most of the studied phenetic species are monophyletic, but some earlier suggested morpho‐species groups are not, and three main episodes dominate the evolutionary history of Isophya, which well correlate with episodes of existing terrestrial connections between Anatolia and the Balkans.
Phaneropterinae (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae) from Turkey and the Middle East II
A rich and interesting material collected from Turkey and the neighbouring countries including the Middle East has been evaluated and three distinct clades of the species groups of Poecilimon are separated and discussed their taxonomic positions.
Review of the Poecilimon (Poecilimon) zonatus species group and description of new species from Turkey with data on bioacoustics and morphology (Orthoptera: Phaneropterinae).
It is concluded that the species complex can be separated into two subgroups, and within the P. zonatus subgroup, song structures indicate P. variicercis as basal branch since producing two syllable types is possibly a derived character.
A comparative study of genome organization and inferences for the systematics of two large bushcricket genera of the tribe Barbitistini (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae: Phaneropterinae)
It was concluded that the physical mapping of rDNA sequences and heterochromatin may be used as an additional marker for understanding interspecific relationships in these groups and their routes of speciation.


The Isophya species of Central and Western Europe (Orthoptera: Tettigonioidea: Phaneropteridae)
The identification of Isophya species was based mainly on subtle differences in the shape of cerci, pronotum, tegmina and ovipositor, which is not surprising, that even in Western and Central Europe nearly half of the currently recognised species have not been described before the beginning of the secondhalf of the last century.
Distribution of Tettigoniinae (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae) bush-crickets in Turkey: the importance of the Anatolian Taurus Mountains in biodiversity and implications for conservation

Some conclusions are drawn on biodiversity and conservation of Tettigoniinae species in Anatolia and 23 species to be included in the 'IUCN Red List' under VU B2+ac are suggested.
The origin and extinction of the large endemic Pleistocene mammals of Cyprus
The discovery at the site of Altrotiri /letokrenmos of the above pygmy mammal species together with man—made artefacts has been interpreted by some researchers as proof of a human role in the extinction of these mammals, but it is rejected that such a bridge never existed.
A new species of bushcricket (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae) of the Palaearctic genus Isophya (Phaneropterinae) from Turkey
The new bushcricket species Isophya rizeensis is described from montane forest and subalpine zones of Mt. Kackar, Turkey on the basis of morphological and bioacoustical traits and relation with other related members of the genus is discussed.

The Anatolian Orthoptera include elements deriving from stocks ofdifferent origin and coming from the surrounding areas and are also represented by a very great number of endemic genera and species.

Endless Forms: Species and Speciation
This volume presents the newest findings from their studies and brings readers up to date on species concepts, modes of speciation, the nature of reproductive barriers, the forces that drive divergence of populations, the genetic control of reproductive isolation, and the role played by hybrid zones and hybridization in speciation.
