    Hufthammer, Anne Karin; Nesje, Atle; Higham, Thomas F.G. (Elsevier, 2019)
    One of the most reliable proofs of terrestrial ice-free conditions within Stadials is the presence of terrestrial vertebrate fauna that require access to vegetation in the winter, for example sedentary birds such as ...

  • The phylogenetic systematics of Spilomelinae and Pyraustinae (Lepidoptera: Pyraloidea: Crambidae) inferred from DNA and morphology 

    Mally, Richard; Hayden, James E.; Neinhuis, Christoph; Jordal, Bjarte Henry; Nuss, Matthias (Senckenberg, 2019)
    Spilomelinae and Pyraustinae form a species-rich monophylum of Crambidae (snout moths). Morphological distinction of the two groups has been difficult in the past, and the morphologically heterogenous Spilomelinae has not ...

  • Phylogenomics of Aplacophora (Mollusca, Aculifera) and a solenogaster without a foot 

    Kocot, Kevin M.; Todt, Christiane; Mikkelsen, Nina Therese; Halanych, Kenneth M (The Royal Society Publishing, 2019)
    Recent molecular phylogenetic investigations strongly supported the placement of the shell-less, worm-shaped aplacophoran molluscs (Solenogastres and Caudofoveata) and chitons (Polyplacophora) in a clade called Aculifera, ...

  • On the typification of the lichen genus Lepra Scop. 

    Jørgensen, Per Magnus; Nimis, Pier Luigi (Wiley, 2019)
    The first typification of Lepra Scop. by Pertusaria discoidea (Pers.) Malme (= Lepra albescens (Hudson) Hafellner), made in the Paris Code (1956), is shown to be correct after studies of the original material in the Micheli ...

  • Patterns of coevolution of ambrosia beetle mycangia and the Ceratocystidaceae, with five new fungal genera and seven new species 

    Mayers, CG; Harrington, TC; Masuya, H; Mcnew, DL; Jordal, Bjarte Henry; Shih, H-H; Roets, F; Kietzka, GJ (Naturalis Biodiversity Center, 2020)
    Ambrosia beetles farm specialised fungi in sapwood tunnels and use pocket-like organs called mycangia to carry propagules of the fungal cultivars. Ambrosia fungi selectively grow in mycangia, which is central to the ...

  • First record of avian extinctions from the Late Pleistocene and Holocene of Timor Leste 

    Meijer, Hanneke; Louys, Julien; O'Connor, Sue (Elsevier, 2019)
    Timor has yielded the earliest evidence for modern humans in Wallacea, but despite its long history of modern human occupation, there is little evidence for human-induced Late Pleistocene extinctions. Here, we report on ...

  • Parthenogenetic vs. sexual reproduction in oribatid mite communities 

    Maraun, Mark; Caruso, Tancredi; Hense, Jonathan; Lehmitz, Ricarda; Mumladze, Levan; Murvanidze, Maka; Nae, Ioana; Schulz, Julia; Seniczak, Anna Beata; Scheu, Stefan (Wiley, 2019)
