Evolution of Ecological and Behavioural Diversity: Australian Acacia Thrips as Model Organisms
This book presents a novel, ‘model clades’ approach to the study of biodiversification, explicitly integrating behaviour, ecology, taxonomy, phylogenetics, and evolution. A single lineage of over 250 species (30 genera) of phytophagous thrips that has radiated on Australian Acacia is considered. Nine genera are newly described. The book explores causes and consequences of behavioural-ecological diversification with special emphasis on the evolution of social behaviour, host-plant use and...[Show more]
