Weekly reading: Diversification patterns in the Mediterranean tenebrionid genus Blaps
Another weekly reading, an empirical paper focusing on a Mediterrranean tenebrionid beetle radiation – genus Blaps Fabricius – using the DEC model by Ree et al. Reference: Condamine, F.L., L. Laurent Soldati, A.-L. Clamens, J.-Y. Rasplus & G.J. Kergoat. 2013. Diversification patterns and processes of wingless endemic insects in the Mediterranean Basin: historical biogeography of the genus Blaps (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae).

This paper’s group leader Gael Kergoat participated in the Third International Tenebrionoidea Symposium held earlier this year at ASU.
