Revision of the New World species of Houghia Coquillett (Diptera, Tachinidae) reared from caterpillars in Area de Conservación Guanacaste, Costa Rica by Alan J Fleming( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirty-five species of the genus Houghia Coquillett (Tachinidae, Exoristinae, Goniini) are described, 34 new and one previously described, all reared from various species of caterpillars collected in Area de Conservación Guanacaste (ACG), northwestern Costa Rica. A matrix of character states and a key for the identification of the species are also provided. By coupling morphology, life history and molecular data, with photographic documentation, a clear and concise description of each species is provided. The following 34 new species of Houghia are described, all authored by Fleming and Wood: H. aerata sp. nov., H. aurifera sp. nov., H. biseriata sp. nov., H. bivittata sp. nov., H. blancoi sp. nov., H. brevipilosa sp. nov., H. chavarriae sp. nov., H. confinis sp. nov., H. delospilota sp. nov., H. destituta sp. nov., H. fimbriata sp. nov., H. gracilis sp. nov., H. graciloides sp. nov., H. griseifrons sp. nov., H. inflatipalpis sp. nov., H. latigena sp. nov., H. latilobus sp. nov., H. longicercus sp. nov., H. longipilosa sp. nov., H. luteiventris sp. nov., H. macilenta sp. nov., H. marini sp. nov., H. matarritai sp. nov., H. nigrofemur sp. nov., H. ochrofemur sp. nov., H. omissa sp. nov., H. pallida sp. nov., H. parmata sp. nov., H. pilosifrons sp. nov., H. romeroae sp. nov., H. sexmaculata sp. nov., H. spathulata sp. nov., H. triangularis sp. nov., and H. velutina sp. nov. The following are proposed by Wood as new synonyms of Houghia: Actinoprosopa Townsend syn. nov., Agrarialia Curran syn. nov., Anhangabahuia Townsend syn. nov., Aridalia Curran syn. nov., Bolohoughia Townsend syn. nov., Carceliocephala Townsend syn. nov., Chrysohoughia Townsend syn. nov., Eumacrohoughia Townsend syn. nov., Macrohoughia Townsend syn. nov., Orohoughia Townsend syn. nov., Pammaerus Aldrich syn. nov., Pararrhinactia Townsend syn. nov., Petrargyrops Townsend syn. nov., Sisyrohoughia Townsend syn. nov., Tapajohoughia Townsend syn. nov., and Verrugomyia Townsend syn. nov. New combinations are proposed by Wood as a result of the new synonymies, as follows: H. analis (Townsend) comb. nov., H. approximata (van der Wulp) comb. nov., H. aurata (Townsend) comb. nov., H. aurometallica (Townsend) comb. nov., H. bistrigata (van der Wulp) comb. nov., H. calcarata (van der Wulp) comb. nov., H. chlorescens (Townsend) comb. nov., H. crypta (Townsend) comb. nov., H. facialis (Townsend) comb. nov., H. impedita(van der Wulp) comb. nov., H. lateralis (Curran) comb. nov., H. leptotrichopa (Brauer & Bergenstamm) comb. nov., H. maris (Townsend) comb. nov., H. marmorata (Townsend) comb. nov., H. minor (Thompson) comb. nov., H. nuda(Townsend) comb. nov., H. orbitalis (Townsend) comb. nov., H. orbitalis (Curran) comb. nov., H. parva (Townsend) comb. nov., H. plagioides (van der Wulp) comb. nov., H. punctiger (Townsend) comb. nov., H. quadra (Wiedemann) comb. nov., H. sexualis (Curran) comb. nov., H. similis (Townsend) comb. nov., H. simillima (Thompson) comb. nov., H. sordida (van der Wulp) comb. nov., H. tenuiseta (Macquart) comb. nov., and H. tropica (Townsend) comb. nov. Houghia orbitalis (Curran, 1934a, described in Sturmia), junior homonym of H. orbitalis (Townsend, 1927, described in Verrugomyia) is synonymized by Wood with Houghia leptotrichopa (Brauer & Bergenstamm, 1891), and need not be renamed while in synonymy. Lectotypes are designated by Wood for the following ten valid species of Houghia: Anisia approximata van der Wulp, 1890, Actinoprosopa facialis Townsend, 1927, Masicera impedita van der Wulp, 1890, Macrohoughia marmorata Townsend, 1927, Eumacrohoughia minor Thompson, 1963, Prospherysa plagioides van der Wulp, 1890, Petrargyrops punctiger Townsend, 1927, Carceliocephala simillima Thompson, 1963, Masicera sordida van der Wulp, 1890, and Masicera tenuiseta Macquart, 1846: 292

Low‐cost agricultural waste accelerates tropical forest regeneration( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Lower‐cost tropical forest restoration methods, particularly those framed as win–win business‐protected area partnerships, could dramatically increase the scale of tropical forest restoration activities, thereby providing a variety of societal and ecosystem benefits, including slowing both global biodiversity loss and climate change. Here we describe the long‐term regenerative effects of a direct application of agricultural waste on tropical dry forest. In 1998, as part of an innovative agricultural waste disposal service contract, an estimated 12, 000 Mg of processed orange peels and pulp were applied to a 3 ha portion of a former cattle pasture with compacted, rocky, nutrient‐poor soils characteristic of prolonged fire‐based land management and overgrazing in Área de Conservación Guanacaste, northwestern Costa Rica. After 16 years, the experimental plot showed a threefold increase in woody plant species richness, a tripling of tree species evenness (Shannon Index), and a 176% increase in aboveground woody biomass over an adjacent control plot. Hemispheric photography showed significant increases in canopy closure in the area where orange waste was applied relative to control. Orange waste deposition significantly elevated levels of soil macronutrients and important micronutrients in samples taken 2 and 16 years after initial orange waste application. Our results point to promising opportunities for valuable synergisms between agricultural waste disposal and tropical forest restoration and carbon sequestration
