    Abstract.-Typically, supertree methods combine a collection of source trees in which just the leaves are labeled by taxa. In such methods the resulting supertree is also leaf labeled. An underlying assumption in these methods is that across all trees in the collection, no two of the taxa are...

    The tribe Rhynchosporeae comprises the genera Rhynchospora and Pleurostachys and has never been studied using molecular techniques. The objective of this study was to use an analysis of trnL-F sequences to evaluate the hypothesized taxonomic divisions within the Rhynchosporeae including the...

    The new species Isotogastrura trichaetosa sp. n. is described from a sand beach of Hainan, South China. It differs from all its congeners by 3+3 axial setae on Abd. IV (vs. 2+2) and by the presence of a pair of tubercles on Abd.VI. The geography of this strictly littoral genus is discussed.

    The genus Meggoleus Townes, 1971 (Ichneumonidae, Tersilochinae) currently comprises two species, one from Brazil and one from Gabon. The genus is recorded from Peru for the first time, with a range extension of the type species, Meggoleus spirator Townes, 1971, and the discovery of two new...

    Species richness has, arguably, become the common currency of studies of biodiversity (Gaston and Spicer, 1998). As is apparent from most of the multiple definitions of ‘biodiversity’ or ‘biological diversity’ (see DeLong, 1996; Gaston, 1996a), this is but one measure...

    Abstract  One new kinorhynch genus and species and one new species from the genus Zelinkaderes are described from sandy sediment off Fort Pierce, Florida. The new genus and species, Tubulideres seminoli gen. et sp. nov. is characterized by the presence of the first trunk segment...

    The non-marine ostracod fauna from pools of Mount Carmel (Israel) is described. Fourteen species were identified, and 4 of these were found for the first time in Israel: Ilyocypris divisa Klie, Heterocypris bosniaca Petkovski et al., Eucypris cf. inflata Sars, and Psychrodromus olivaceus (Brady...
