Brygadyrenko, V., T. Avtaeva, and A. Matsyura. 2021. Effect of global climate change on the distribution of Anchomenus dorsalis (Coleoptera, Carabidae) in Europe. Acta Biologica Sibirica 7: 237–260. https://doi.org/10.3897/abs.7.e72409

Shifts in the bioclimatic range of Anchomenus dorsalis – specialized entomophage – were modeled in the MaxEntsoftware package and are presented on habitat maps. For the prediction, we used two climatic scenarios – mild (RCP2.6) and extreme (RCP8.5). Under the considered scenarios, …

Busch, A. K., B. E. Wham, and J. F. Tooker. 2021. Life History, Biology, and Distribution of Pterostichus melanarius (Coleoptera: Carabidae) in North America J. Schmidt [ed.],. Environmental Entomology 50: 1257–1266. https://doi.org/10.1093/ee/nvab090

Pterostichus melanarius (Illiger, 1798) is a Palearctic generalist predator native to Europe. It was unintentionally introduced to North America at least twice in the mid 1920s and has since become widespread in Canada and the United States. Although P. melanarius is a valuable natural enemy in many…

Fletcher, T. L., A. Z. Csank, and A. P. Ballantyne. 2019. Identifying bias in cold season temperature reconstructions by beetle mutual climatic range methods in the Pliocene Canadian High Arctic. Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology 514: 672–676. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.palaeo.2018.11.025

Well-preserved beetle elytra from the fossil and subfossil record are used by palaeoclimatologists to estimate past temperatures. Beetle-derived estimates of temperature across the Pliocene Arctic are consistently lower than those derived from other palaeoclimate proxies. Here we test if that patter…
