Progress on the breakdown of one-to-one rule in symbiosis of figs and their pollinating wasps
- Environmental Science
: The fig–fig-pollinating wasp symbiosis provides a model system for investigating the mutualistic interaction between plants and animals. A simple one-to-one rule was proposed to describe the highly…
A catalogue of Philippine Hymenoptera (with a bibliography, 1758-1963).
This catalogue brings together the widely scattered information on Philippine Hymenoptera covering the past 205 years and incorporates these so as to up-date the catalogue to 1963.
POLLINATOR‐MEDIATED REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION AMONG DIOECIOUS FIG SPECIES (FICUS, MORACEAE)
- Biology, Environmental ScienceEvolution; international journal of organic evolution
The extent of isolation among closely related sympatric plant species engaged in obligate pollination mutualisms depends on the fitness consequences of interspecies floral visitation. In figs…
Martininema semicordatae n. sp. (Nematoda: Aphelenchoididae) associated with Ficus semicordata in China
A new nematode species was recovered from the syconia of Ficus semicordata from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, Yunnan Province, China and is characterised by having the combined characters of a long post-vulval uterine sac, excretory pore located at nerve ring level, amoeboid sperm and three pairs of subventral papillae on the male tail.
Additions and changes to Ficus (Moraceae) in New Guinea with comments on the world’s largest fig
- BiologyGardens' Bulletin Singapore
Ficus umbrae Ezedin & Weiblen is described on the basis of morphological intermediacy and molecular evidence to report the first functionally gynomonoecious Ficus species.
Research progress of interspecific hybridization in genus Ficus
- BiologyBiodiversity Science
Investigation of the effect of hybridization on fig biodiversity and the stability of the fig–fig-pollinating wasp mutualism, and exploring hybridization pattern and consequence of the hybrid zone, and the factors that affect the host shift and hybridization, and so on.
Diversification and spatial structuring in the mutualism between Ficus septica and its pollinating wasps in insular South East Asia
- BiologyBMC Evolutionary Biology
This is the first documentation of the presence of two distinct processes in pollinating fig wasp diversification on a host species: the formation of vicariant species and the co-occurrence of other species over large parts of their ranges probably made possible by character displacement.
An annotated checklist of the fig wasps (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) of India
A checklist of 115 fig wasp species recorded within the present political boundary of India till 2015 is provided along with a fig–fig wasp host catalogue and two new synonyms are proposed.

A checklist of Chalcidoidea (Insecta: Hymenoptera) of Khuzestan in southwestern Iran is presented, highlighting the importance of knowing the distribution and habits of these insects in the region.
Breathing adaptations of males in tig gall flowers (Hymenoptera: Agaonidae)
Apocryptophagus and Sycophaga wasps (Sycophaginae) develop in the syconia of Sycocarpus and Sycomorus figs and have terminal abdominal filaments that are extensions of the peritremes.
