Invasions of leaf beetles can cause tremendous economic consequences because some of these insects become major pests in invaded territories. We present the first inventory of alien Chrysomelidae of European Russia that appeared in the region in the 20th and 21st centuries (9 species) with analysis …

Mexican sunflower, Tithonia diversifolia (Asteraceae), is an invasive tropical plant species native to Central America. It has spread in more than 70 countries across Asia, Africa and Australia. In Africa, this species is known to disturb native crops and plant communities, but its negative impacts …

The ability to infer paleo-distributions with limited knowledge of absence makes species distribution modeling (SDM) a useful tool for exploring paleobiogeographic questions. Spatial sampling bias is a known issue when modeling extant species. Here we quantify the spatial sampling bias in a North Am…

The spread of invasive species may pose great threats to the economy and ecology of a region. The codling moth (Cydia pomonella L.) is one of the 100 worst invasive alien species in the world and is the most destructive apple pest. The economic losses caused by codling moths are immeasurable. It is …

BACKGROUND: The insect Bagrada hilaris (Burmeister) is considered an important pest worldwide, mainly due to the serious economic losses and the wide number of zones invaded. However, the current and future spatial distribution of this pest and the total cropland area potentially affected has not ye…

Black cherries are native to North America and make up a complex of five morphologically different subspecies growing in significantly different niches. This study used 474 presence points, 19 climate parameters and altitude to: (1) describe climatic preference of subspecies, (2) associate the most …

The Nelson´s small-eared shrew, Cryptotisnelsoni (Merriam, 1895), is a critically endangered species, endemic to cloud forests in Los Tuxtlas, a mountain range along the Gulf of Mexico coast. This species is only known from the type locality and its surroundings. Here we present new records that ext…

Using various sources, including the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), published literature, recent (2015–2017) collections, as well as bat detector and camera trap surveys with opportunistic sightings and live capture in the upper Okavango catchment in central Angola, we present an u…

The first record of the prickly puffer Ephippion guttifer (Tetraodontidae) from Galician waters (north‐west Spain) is reported based on a male specimen of 570 mm total length (LT) caught in the Ría de Vigo. Morphometric, meristic and DNA barcode data confirmed the identification. Histological examin…

Repeated climate change during glacial and interglacial periods of the Quaternary led to mass migrations that resulted in disjunct distributions for many species. However, few studies have examined the processes that form disjunct distributions in Northeast Asia (NEA). In this study, we examined the…
