Download The Evolutionary Biology of Flies by David Yeates, Brian Wiegmann PDF

By David Yeates, Brian Wiegmann

Flies ( Dipteria) have had a massive function in deepening scientists'understanding of recent biology and evolution. The research of flies has figured prominently in significant advances within the fields of molecular evolution, body structure, genetics, phylogenetics, and ecology over the past century.

This quantity, with contributions from most sensible scientists and students within the box, brings jointly various facets of study and should be crucial examining for entomologists and fly researchers.

Korneyev (2000) breaks the superfamily into two sections, a monophyletic “higher Tephritoidea” comprising the Ulidiidae (=Otitidae =Pterocallidae), Platystomatidae, Pyrgoitidae, and Tephritidae, and a paraphyletic “lower Tephritoidea” comprising the Lonchaeidae, Piophilidae, Pallopteridae, and Richardiidae. Morphological support is limited for the exact resolution of the relationships among the lower tephritoid families. In Griffiths’s (1972) system, the Tephritidae family group is one of eight clades making up the Tephritoinea section of his superfamily Muscoidea.

2003), and this phylogeny in turn was used to study the evolution of the male lure response. Lauxanioidea is a well-supported superfamily present in all three major classifications (Hennig 1958, 1973; Griffiths 1972; McAlpine 1989), containing the Chamaemyiidae, Lauxaniidae, Eurychoromyiidae, and Celyphidae. Hennig (1973) placed the monotypic Bolivian Eurychoromyiidae in Sciomyzoidea. Synapomorphies for the group include convergent Phylogenetic hypothesis for Diopsidae, based on 54 morphological characters and 1,195 base pairs of mtDNA and 966 base pairs of nuclear DNA sequence data, from Meier and Baker (2002).
