Description :


A primary aim of this catalog is to offer an accounting for each species as originally proposed and for the first usage only of all its name combinations (including valid names, synonymies, and misspellings) that have been published for our area. We follow the policy outlined by the 1985 Code of Zoological Nomenclature for nonmenclatorial proposes that a dissertation for an advanced educational degree is not published unless it satisfies the criteria present in Articles 8 and 9.

Description :


Insect Biodiversity: Science and Society brings togetherleading scientific experts to assess the impact insects have onhumankind and the earth’s fragile ecosystems. It examines whyinsect biodiversity matters and how the rapid evolution of insectspecies is affecting us all. Insects and related arthropods make up more than 50 percent ofthe known animal diversity globally, yet a lack of knowledge aboutinsects is hindering the advance of science and society. This bookexplores the wide variety in type and number of insect species andtheir evolutionary relationships. Case studies offer assessments onhow insect biodiversity can help meet the needs of a rapidlyexpanding human population, and also examine the consequences thatan increased loss of insect species will have on the world. The book concludes that a better understanding of the biologyand ecology of insects is the only way to sustainably manageecosystems in an ever changing global environment.

Description :


True bugs (Heteroptera) are a diverse and complex group of plant-feeding and predatory insects important to food production, human health, the global economy and the environment. Within the nearly 43,000 species described around the world, Neotropical true bugs are particularly diverse, and much remains to be discovered about their biology and relations with other species. Inspired by the need for a comprehensive assessment, True Bugs (Heteroptera) of the Neotropics is the most complete and thorough review ever published. Experts in each of the seven infraorders have drawn together the scattered literature to provide detailed treatments of each major taxon. The most common and important species as well as select lesser known species in each major family are covered, highlighting morphology, classification, biology and ecology. The numerous color illustrations highlight key species and their adaptations, and importance to basic and applied sciences is discussed. Each chapter is based on an up-to-date review of the literature, and with a bibliography of more than 3,000 references, readers are presented with an unprecedented and vital and timely account of the true bugs of the Neotropical Region.

Description :


A revision and the first phylogenetic analysis of the widely distributed plant bug genus Tytthus is presented. All 24 species of this genus, including five described as new, prey exclusively on planthopper (Delphacidae) eggs, making them of great importance on agricultural monocots. Two species have been used successfully in biocontrol programs to suppress populations of sugarcane delphacid on sugarcane and brown planthopper on rice. All species of Tytthus are relatively small, but the tiny brachypterous males of one species, ranging from 1.08?1.30 mm long, rank it as possibly the world?s smallest known plant bug. Members of this genus are found in nearly all biogeographic regions, including 18 restricted to the Nearctic and Neotropics and three from the eastern Oriental and Indo-Pacific regions. There are also two Holarctic and one circumtropical (Afrotropical, Neotropical, and Oriental) species. A hypothesized relationship with several Nearctic plant bug genera suggests a New World origin for this group of important predatory bugs.

Description :


The infraorder Pentatomomorpha is the subject of the second volume in the Zoological Catalogue of Australia series dealing with the true bugs (the suborder Heteroptera). It includes the bark bugs, stilt bugs, seed bugs, cotton stainers, burrowing bugs, shield bugs and stink bugs. Many of these species are of significant economic importance both as pests and as natural enemies of other insect pests. In this catalogue, the authors propose a new classification for the Australian Heteroptera based on the most recent developments in heteropterology worldwide. The proposed classification departs significantly from all previous treatment of the Australian fauna. There is a comprehensive treatment of the classification and nomenclature of the Australian species and a thorough review of the literature concerned with the higher classification of the Pentatomomorpha. The volume gives detailed information on the distribution and ecology of each species and features the first in depth listing of their host associations, including a significant accounting of the plant associations. All species and generic synonymies are given, including extra-limital synonyms, along with detailed type specimen data. Features * Provides a new classification for the Australian Heteroptera, reflecting the most recent developments in Heteropterology worldwide * Covers 34 families, 439 genera and 1179 species * Completes the work for the Australian Heteroptera, complementing volume 27.3A * Includes comprehensive synonymical and bibliographic listings and detailed distribution information * Gives the first listing of the host plants of the Pentatomomorpha in Australia * Sample

Description :


"The Holarctic genus Atractotomus Fieber is revised. Lepidopsallus Knight and Microphylidea Knight are relegated to synonymy with Atractotomus. Thirty-seven species are recognized, including 17 new species from the Nearctic region. Microphylidea prosopidis Knight, Psallus kolenatii (Flor), Rhinacloa nigripennis Schuh and Schwartz, and six species of Lepidopsallus (arizonae Knight, atricolor Knight, miniatus Knight, ovatus Knight rubidus (Uhler), tuthilli Knight) are transferred to Atractotomus. Atractotomus amygdali Wagner, A. mali (Meyer-Dür), A. rhodani Fieber, and A. vireti Wagner are assigned the status of species incertae sedis. Atractotomus femoralis Fieber and A. spissicornis (Schrank) are declared nomina dubia. Atractotomus crataegi and the remaining eight species of Lepidopsallus (australis Blatchley, claricornis Knight, hesperus Knight, longirostris Knight, minusculus Knight, olseni Knight, pini Knight, rostratus Knight) are transferred to Phoenicocoris Reuter. The following species synonymies are proposed (senior synonym first): Atractotomus albidicoxis Reuter = Lepidopsallus monticola Knight; Atractotomus balli Knight = Atractotomus purshiae Froeschner and Lepidopsallus californicus Knight; Atractotomus magnicornis (Fallén) = Atractotomus magnicornis buenoi Knight; Atractotomus miniatus (Knight) = Lepidopsallus nyssae Johnston; Atractotomus ovatus (Knight) = Lepidopsallus nicholi Knight; Atractotomus parvulus Reuter = Atractotomus mirificus Woodroffe; Atractotomus persquamosus Seidenstücker = Atractotomus brunomassai Carapezza. Illustrations and/or photographs are provided for the antennae and male genitalic structures of all species of Atractotomus. Scanning electron micrographs are presented for the scalelike setae, metafemur, and pretarsus of representative species of Atractotomus and related genera. Separate keys are provided for the Nearctic and Palearctic members of the genus. A phylogenetic analysis of species is presented using Psallus ancorifer (Fieber) for outgroup comparison. Three species groups are recognized from the resulting species phylogeny. An analysis of host plant associations suggests that Atractotomus was primitively associated with conifers, but shifted to legume feeding early in the evolution of the genus. In the Nearctic region, this was followed by separate shifts to feeding on Quercus, Salix, and Rhamnaceae + Rosaceae. Species diversity and endemism are greatest in parts of east-central and south-central Mexico. Species with restricted distributions also occur in southeastern Arizona, the Rocky Mountains, and upland regions of the Pacific coast states and Baja California. The phylogenetic analysis of species indicates a strong relationship between taxa occurring in the American Southwest and endemic species in central Mexico"--P. 4.
