Especially in the 19th century and to a lesser extent today, their large size and conspicuous coloration, as well as the odd morphology of some (e.g. the Lebiini), made many ground beetles a popular object of collection and study for professional and amateur prices were paid for rare and exotic specimens, and in the early to midth century, a veritable "beetle craze Class: Insecta.

Harpalinae is a species rich clade of carabid beetles with many unusual morphological forms and ecological interactions. How this diversity evolved has been difficult to reconstruct, perhaps because harpalines underwent a rapid burst of diversification early in their evolutionary history.

Here we investigate the tempo of evolution in harpalines using molecular divergence dating techniques and Cited by: Adv. Biophys., Vol. 36, pp.

The taxonomy of carabid beetles has been extensively studied. Traditionally, phylogenetic reconstructions of carabids are based on the morphological characters, for example, the male [9,10] and female genitalia [] and the wing folding structures [].Liebherr and Will () recovered Carabidae as a non-monophyletic assemblage, with the characters of the female reproductive tract [].

Californian insect biodiversity includes many beetles that are important to the ecosystem and may help control pest species.

Many species are unknown or cannot be recognized because the basic information on the group has not been collected. This study will provide basic knowledge of one potentially important group of predatory beetles, describe new species and develop identification tools.

The Alpine region harbours one of the most diverse subterranean faunas in the world, with many species showing extreme morphological modifications.

Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution   The identification of vast numbers of unknown organisms using DNA sequences becomes more and more important in ecological and biodiversity studies.

ground beetles, DNA, molecular phylogeny, Bembidiini, Trechinae, Carabidae, Trechitae introduction The supertribe Trechitae comprises over 5, described species (Lorenz ) of ground beetles. Although this is comparable to the number of mammal species (Wil-son and Reeder ), trechites are much more poorly known.

Trechites are diverse. The ground beetles form the speciose beetle family Carabidae and, since their emergence in the Tertiary, have populated all habitats except deserts.

Our knowledge about carabids is biased toward species living in north-temperate regions. Most carabids are predatory, consume a wide range of food types, and experience food shortages in the field.

In this study, we sequenced a nearly complete mitogenome of Amara aulica (Carabidae), using a next-generation sequencing : Zhenya Li, Xinxin Li, Nan Song, Huiji Tang, Xinming Yin.

Unique features of tiger beetles wouldn't actually be informative when it comes to phylogeny, because they don't say anything about the position of tiger beetles relative to anything else.
