Contributions to Systematics and Biology of Beetles. Papers by Alexander S. Konstantinov

By Alexander S. Konstantinov

This quantity is devoted to Professor Igor Konstantinovich Lopatin in social gathering of his eightieth birthday. Igor Konstantinovich is a renown taxonomist, prolific writer, cutting edge organic explorer, and revered instructor who knowledgeable 1000's of scholars and through his expert lifestyles was once (and nonetheless is) an concept and a mentor for ratings of taxonomists. His tireless enthusiastic paintings formed generations of Belarusian zoologists, introduced a large and regular appreciate of systematics right into a neighborhood medical neighborhood. yet most crucial, he taught us that accumulating and learning beetles, small and massive, brilliant and boring, is a noble factor to do. Contributions assembled during this quantity mirror Lopatin's highbrow breadth and various clinical pursuits. a few dwells on Lopatin's curiosity in biogeography of arid parts of the Palearctic describing zoogeographic connections among desolate tract faunas of center Asia, Iran, and Afghanistan, and leaf beetle fauna of the Hermon Mountains in Israel. different contributions mirror Lopatin's curiosity in host plant relationships, e.g. discovery of a unprecedented crucifer in Turkey being eaten through a good rarer flea beetle. Many contributions are revisions and keys for identity in approximately all significant teams of beetles. a few are checklists, faunistic notes, ecological experiences, and lots of comprise descriptions of latest taxa in lots of beetle households. This booklet may be an crucial resource of data on beetle taxonomy, range, biogeography, and host plant relationships. it is going to be precious for entomologists, ecologists, extension scientists, entomology scholars, comparative morphologists and evolutionary biologists operating throughout beetle taxa and anyone drawn to beetle id.

The fauna, which has no fewer than 103 species, 39 genera, 17 households, and 5 orders, is reviewed and summarized.

Biotic Stress and Yield Loss

Realizing biotic rigidity and plant yield allows the sensible improvement of financial selection making, an instrumental a part of built-in Pest administration. and extra, the impression of biotic damage on plant yield bears without delay at the simple organic questions of inhabitants dynamics, lifestyles background options, group constitution, plant-stressor coevolution, and atmosphere nutrient biking.

The Ecology of Cyanobacteria: Their Diversity in Time and Space

Cyanobacteria make an incredible contribution to global photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation, yet also are infamous for inflicting nuisances akin to dense and infrequently poisonous `blooms' in lakes and the sea. The Ecologyof Cyanobacteria: Their variety in Time and area is the 1st publication to concentration completely on ecological facets of those organisms.
