Death comes on two wings: a review of dipteran natural enemies of arachnids
Information is summarized on all lineages of Diptera known to attack arachnids, including predators, parasites, kleptoparasites and parasitoids, with particular emphasis on Acroceridae, one of the most significant groups of natural enemies of spiders.
Revision of the genus Boettcheria in America North of Mexico (Diptera: Sarcophagidae)
The seven Nearctic species of Boettcheria are revised and distributional data are given for North America. Both sexes can be identified from the key. Bionomic information is included. Boettcheria
The ecology of riparian habitats of the southern California coastal region: A community profile
In the 200 years since California's settlement by Europeans, almost every river in southern California has been channelized or dammed to allow development on the floodplains, causing the loss of a
The complete mitochondrial genome of the kelp fly Fucellia costalis (Diptera: Anthomyiidae) from Pacific Grove, California
The distributional range of F. costalis is extended northward from California to Vancouver Island, Canada, and the phylogenetic position and genetic distances support the continued recognition of the subfamily Fucellinae.
Predatory behavior of Synthesiomyia nudiseta larvae (Diptera: Muscidae) on several necrophagous blowfly species (Diptera: Calliphoridae)
The predatory behavior of S. nudiseta on the most abundant blowfly larvae in sarcosaprophagous communities in southwestern Europe is investigated and its effect on the estimation of postmortem interval (PMI) is discussed.
Survey for Etomopathogenic Nematodes and Entomopathogenic Fungi in Alfalfa Snout Beetle, Otiorhynchus Ligustici (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), Infested Fields in Hungary and in New York State
A survey for etomopathogenic nematodes and fungi in alfalfa snout beetle Otiorhynchus ligustici (L.) infested fields was conducted in Hungary, where this beetle is native, and in New York State,
Association of Myianoetus muscarum (Acari: Histiostomatidae) With Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Wulp) (Diptera: Muscidae) on Human Remains
This report represents the first records of a mite associated with S. nudiseta in the continental United States and is believed to be of potential future value in forensic investigations, as it lends new insight into the community structure of colonizers on human remains in indoor environments.
Evolution of Philopotinae, with a revision and phylogeny of the New World spider fly genus Philopota Wiedemann (Diptera, Acroceridae)
The monophyly of Philopota is recovered, and the Palaearctic genus Oligoneura is hypothesized as its sister- Group, resulting in a single most parsimonious tree under equal weights.
A Functional Genetic Study of Sexual Dimorphism and Behavioral Ecology in Chrysomya rufifacies (Diptera: Calliphoridae)
Using nanofiltration membranes for the recovery of phosphorous with a second type of technology for the recoverability of nitrogen is suggest to be a viable process.
