- On the Taxonomy of Acanthoscurria Ausserer from Southeastern Brazil with Data on the Natural History of A. gomesiana Mello-Leitão (Araneae, Mygalomorphae, Theraphosidae. Gonzalez-Filho, Hector M. O.; Lucas, Sylvia M.; Paula, Felipe dos S.; Indicatti, Rafael P.; Brescovit, Antonio D. // International Journal of Zoology;2012, p1
The study of type material and specimens of A. gomesiana of several Brazilian spider collections offered us the possibility to redescribe this species and consider synonyms of the first one of the following: A. violacea, A. pugnax, and A. aurita. Acanthoscurria cunhae and A. melanotheria are...
- Looking for Lemurs. // Scholastic News -- Edition 4;9/26/2005, Vol. 68 Issue 4, p3
This article reports on the discovery of two new lemur species in Madagascar, as of September 2005. The first species is called Goodman's mouse lemur. It is about the size of a mouse. The second species, named Mirza zaza, weighs less than a pound. Many lemurs are nocturnal.
- Asian Primate Classification. Brandon-Jones, D.; Eudey, A.A.; Geissmann, T.; Groves, C.P.; Melnick, D.J.; Morales, J.C.; Shekelle, M.; Stewart, C.-B. // International Journal of Primatology;Feb2004, Vol. 25 Issue 1, p97
In the foreseeable future there is little likelihood of achieving consensus on the number of Asian primate genera and species, and their subspecific composition. There is a more realistic hope of reaching agreement on the number of recognizable subspecies. The latter objective is more urgent...
- A New Generic Name for the Hoolock Gibbon (Hylobatidae). Mootnick, Alan; Groves, Colin // International Journal of Primatology;Aug2005, Vol. 26 Issue 4, p971
Contrary to usual practice, the generic nomen Bunopithecus is not applicable to hoolock gibbons. We recount the history of its application and explain why it is spurious. We supply a new generic name, list the characters and content of the genus, and compare it to the other 3 genera of the...
- Solution of Revecz-Krushinskii test by animals of different taxonomic groups. Pleskacheva, M.; Zorina, Z. // Journal of Evolutionary Biochemistry & Physiology;Sep2012, Vol. 48 Issue 5/6, p548
There has been compared behavior of rats, corvid birds, and monkeys of different species at their performance of the Revecz-Krushinskii test (RKT) developed by L.V. Krushinskii to estimate the human capability for revealing rule of discrete translocation of hidden target object. RKT was...
- Consistency of Taxonomic Treatments: A Response to Remsen (2005). Peterson, A. Townsend; Navarro-Sig�enza, Adolfo G. // Auk (American Ornithologists Union);Jul2006, Vol. 123 Issue 3, p885
The article explains a review of Mexican bird taxonomy written by Remsen. Remsen assesses the quality of the list of avian subspecies used to describe the intraspecific variation. The problem of taxonomies is much broader than what Remsen has described. Avian species-level taxonomy was formed...
