24,000 reasons to study geometrid moths: an overview of diversity, phylogeny and classification
Presented by: Pasi Sihvonen and Leidys Murillo Ramos, Finnish Museum of Natural History, Helsinki, Finland
Abstract: Geometrid moths are the second most species-rich family of Lepidoptera, found globally except Antarctica. We provide an overview of their diversity, including life histories, peculiar adaptations, ecological importance, phylogeny and classification. The presentation is based on our research on the global fauna, including molecular, morphological and life history data, and recent literature.Watch on Zoom
