The Galápagos Islands: biogeographic patterns and geology
- GeologyBiological reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical Society
The present distributions are explicable if ancestors survived as metapopulations occupying both the Galápagos hotspot and other regions before differentiating, more or less in situ.
Post release evaluation of Rodolia cardinalis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) for control of Icerya purchasi (Hemiptera: Monophlebidae) in the Galapagos Islands
Thysanoptera of the Galápagos Islands
Abstract: Thysanoptera from the Galápagos Islands were inventoried from 627 slide-mounted specimens that were made with material that had been stored at the Reference Collection of Terrestrial…
Insects associated with endangered plants in the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador
- Environmental Science, Biology
One hundred and eight insect species were found to have some degree of interaction, using plants for refuge and/or as a food source, and most of the identified insects are endemic or native and several generalist feeders.
Eat and be eaten: trophic interactions of the introduced frog Scinax quinquefasciatus in anthropogenic environments in Galápagos
- Environmental Science
This study explores the potential influence of this introduced amphibian on native trophic systems on Santa Cruz and identifies potential antagonists likely to control larval frog populations and identifies active predators of S. quinquefasciatus.
Ecological patterns strongly impact the biogeography of western Palaearctic longhorn beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycoidea)
- Environmental Science, GeographyOrganisms Diversity & Evolution
The results support multipleRefugia in the Mediterranean region and underline the importance of Provence, Crimea and Crete as such refugia as well as the role of old endemism in Crete.
New records and new species of springtails (Collembola: Entomobryidae, Paronellidae) from lava tubes of the Galápagos Islands (Ecuador)
The findings of the first survey of Collembola from Galápagos lava tube caves are presented, providing a significant update to the total number of entomobryoid Colleembola species reported from the GaláPagos Islands.
Biology of invasive termites: a worldwide review.
- Environmental Science, BiologyAnnual review of entomology
The number of recognized invasive termite species has increased from 17 in 1969 to 28 today. Fourteen species have been added to the list in the past 44 years; 10 have larger distributions and 4 have…
AN UPDATED CHECKLIST OF SCALE INSECTS (HEMIPTERA: COCCOIDEA) OF THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS, ECUADOR
- Environmental Science
The low number of endemic and native species suggests that scale insects have been poor at reaching the Galapagos Islands naturally.
Two new endemic species of Chrysopodes (Neosuarius) (Neuroptera, Chrysopidae) from the Galápagos Islands.
Two new species that were previously undistinguished from the Galapagos endemic Chrysopodes (Neosuarius) nigripilosus (Banks), are described. Th ese descriptions double, from two to four, the number…
