Drivers of Diversity of Darwinia’s Common Scents and Inflorescences with Style: Phylogenomics, Pollination Biology, and Floral Chemical Ecology of Western Australian Darwinia (Myrtaceae).

Patricia W. Chan (University of Wisconsin-Madison and Australian Tropical Herbarium); Thomas J. Givnish (University of Wisconsin-Madison); Matthew Barrett (Australian Tropical Herbarium and James Cook University). This ongoing research strives to analyze the relative importance of different drivers of plant species diversification in the highly morphologically diverse and geographically limited genus Darwinia (Myrtaceae). This group is ideal to examine …

Insect gall development on Eucalyptus.

Misha Mangila (The University of Queensland); Lyn Cook (The University of Queensland); Peter Crisp (The University of Queensland). The ability to induce the growth of novel plant organs (galls) has evolved repeatedly among arthropods, with about 20,000 species of insects able to induce galls today. Gall-inducing insects tend to be more host-specific than their non-galling relatives, …

Comparative phylogeography of east Australian carnivorous plants and kleptoparasitic bugs.

Zoe McCarthy (University of New South Wales) Gerry Cassis (University of New South Wales) Dan Murphy (Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria) Dieter Hochuli (University of Sydney). The sundews (Drosera sp.) are a diverse family of carnivorous plants with about 160 species occurring in Australia. Their leaves are covered with sticky hairs that act as fly paper-style traps that …
