Title:  

Review of the New World Genera of the Leafhopper Tribe Erythroneurini (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Typhlocybinae)

 
 Volume/Number:  37 2006 5 July 
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Natural History Survey Library 0182
 Description:  Irregularly published technical series. Abstract: The genus-level classification of New World Erythroneurini is revised based on results of a phylogenetic analysis of 100 morphological characters. The 704 known species are placed into 18 genera. Erasmoneura Young and Eratoneura Young, previously treated as subgenera of Erythroneura Fitch, and Erythridula Young, most recently treated as a subgenus of Arboridia Zachvatkin, are elevated to generic status. Three species previously included in Erasmoneura are placed in a new genus, Rossmoneura (type species, Erythroneura tecta McAtee). The concept of Erythroneura is thereby narrowed to include only those species previously included in the nominotypical subgenus. New World species previously included in Zygina Fieber are not closely related to the European type species of that genus and are therefore placed in new genera. Neozygina, n. gen., based on type species Erythroneura ceonothana Beamer, includes all species previously included in the ceonothana group, and Zyginama, n. gen., based on type species Erythroneura ritana Beamer, includes most species previously included in the ritana group of New World Zygina. Five additional new genera are described to include other previously described North American Erythroneurini: Hepzygina, n. gen., based on type species Erythroneura milleri Beamer and also including E. aprica McAtee; Mexigina, n. gen., based on type species Erythroneura oculata McAtee; Nelionidia, n. gen., based on type species N. pueblensis, n. sp., three additional new species, and Erythroneura amicis Ross; Neoimbecilla, n. gen., based on type species Erythroneura kiperi Beamer and one new species; and Illinigina, n. gen., based on type species Erythroneura illinoiensis Gillette. Five new genera, based on previously undescribed species, are also recognized: Aztegina, n. gen, based on A. punctinota, n. sp., from Mexico; Amazygina, n. gen., based on type species A. decaspina, n. sp., and three additional new species from Ecuador; Hamagina, n. gen., based on type species H. spinigera, n. sp., and two additional new species from Peru and Ecuador; Napogina, n. gen., based on type species N. recta, n. sp., and one additional new species from Ecuador; Perugina, n. gen., based on type species P. denticula, n. sp., from Peru; and Spinigina, n. gen., based on type species S. hirsuta, n. sp., and an additional new species from Peru. Phylogenetic analysis suggests that the New World Erythroneurini consist of three lineages resulting from separate invasions from the Old World.

Title:  

Review of the Species of New World Erythroneurini (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Typhlocybinae) II. Genus Zyginama

 
 Volume/Number:  38 2008 3 April 
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Natural History Survey Library 0182
 Description:  Irregularly published technical series. Abstract: The 35 previously described species (including 4 junior synonyms) of the New World erythroneurine leafhopper genus Zyginama are reviewed and descriptions are provided for 43 new species, 2 from U.S.A., 26 from Mexico, 1 from Panama, and 14 from the Amazon region of South America. The following new synonyms are recognized: Z. aucta (McAtee) equals Erythroneura bilocularis Van Duzee, syn. n., and E. inclita Beamer, syn. n.; Z. nicholi (Beamer) equals E. canyonensis Beamer, syn. n., and E. ales Beamer, syn. n. Separate keys are provided for identification of males from North and South America, all known species are illustrated, and data on their distributions are summarized. Phylogenetic analysis of 40 morphological characters of the 71 species for which males are known yielded a reasonably well resolved estimate of relationships among the included species, but branch support was low overall.

Title:  

The Thompson Lake/Emiquon Story: The Biology, Drainage, and Restoration of an Illinois River Bottomland Lake

 
 Volume/Number:   25 
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Natural History Survey Library 0036
 Description:  Irregularly published series focusing on specific topics. Excerpt: Thompson Lake was the largest and most recognized bottomland lake in the Illinois River valley (Figure 1). The populations of avifauna, particularly waterfowl, and fishes that frequented and inhabited Thompson and adjoining Flag Lake attracted Native Americans, and later explorers, settlers, and tourists, to its shores. Nestled immediately north of the confluence of the Spoon and Illinois rivers in Fulton County, Thompson Lake was a biological paradise (Figure 2). The story of the fate of Thompson Lake is representative of many other bottomland lakes along the Illinois River and other large midwestern floodplains. The Thompson Lake story is unique, however, because of its centuries of fertility and productivity; the decades of controversy surrounding its public versus private ownership and whether it was navigable or could legally be drained; its importance to the local and regional economies for sustenance, income, recreation, and tourism; its drainage and subsequent development into the largest farm in the state; and the often contentious discussions concerning its reestablishment. Since 1986, there have been strong renewed interest and organized endeavors to restore Thompson Lake. As a result, this story is presented to coalesce the wealth of available information, to enhance wetland restoration efforts in the Illinois Valley, and to illustrate the lakes intriguing past, present, and future.

Title:  

Vascular Flora of Middle Fork Woods Nature Preserve, Vermilion County, Illinois

 
 Volume/Number:  38 2008 4 June 
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Natural History Survey Library 0182
 Description:  Irregularly published technical series. Abstract: The vascular flora of Middle Fork Woods Nature Preserve, Vermilion County, Illinois, was studied during the growing seasons of 19992002. A total of 376 species were found: 12 ferns, fern-allies, and gymnosperms; 99 monocots; and 265 dicots. The three families with the largest number of species were the Poaceae (44), Asteraceae (39), and Cyperaceae (34, 29 of which were members of the genus Carex). The overstory and woody understory of six forest communities were surveyed: a mature second growth dry-mesic upland forest dominated by Quercus alba (white oak) and Q. velutina (black oak); an old growth, dry-mesic savanna dominated by Q. alba with a dense understory of Acer saccharum (sugar maple); SW-facing and NE-facing forested slopes of a mesic ravine, both dominated by A. saccharum and Q. alba; a southern flatwood forest/ephemeral pond community dominated by Q. bicolor (swamp white oak); and an immature second growth dry-mesic upland forest dominated by Q. alba and Carya ovata (shagbark hickory). Ground layer plants were surveyed in spring and fall in the dry-mesic upland forest communities, and for each species the relative cover, relative frequency, and importance values were determined. The preserve, comprised mostly of oak-hickory forest communities, was found to be in relatively good ecological condition. Mature and maturing second-growth oaks were present throughout much of the preserve. Sugar maples dominated the understory and, along with the dense overstory, were apparently limiting oak regeneration. The non-natives Lonicera spp. (bush honeysuckles), Elaeagnus umbellata (autumn olive), Alliaria petiolata (garlic mustard), and the native sugar maple, will continue to need to be controlled. Prescribed fire is recommended to limit populations of these species.

Title:  

Vegetation and Flora of the Sand Deposits of the Mississippi River Valley in Northwestern Illinois

 
 Volume/Number:  37 2006 6 October 
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Natural History Survey Library 0182
 Description:  Irregularly published technical series. Abstract: This study was undertaken to determine vascular plant species composition, vegetation structure, and floristic quality of the major plant communities in the windblown sand deposits of northwestern Illinois during the growing seasons of 2002 through 2005. The major plant communities of the Ayers Sand Prairie Nature Preserve in Carroll County, Big River State Forest in Henderson County, Lost Mound Unit of the Upper Mississippi River Wildlife and Fish Refuge in Carroll and Jo Daviess counties, and the Thomson-Fulton Sand Prairie Nature Preserve located in Whiteside County were examined and the importance values determined for the plant species present. Located on broad terraces of the Mississippi River, these nature preserves and natural areas are remnants of a larger grassland/savanna/forest complex that contained extensive marsh; wet, mesic, and dry sand prairie; sand savanna; and sand forest communities. Most of the sand deposits are now cultivated and the original vegetation is found only in protected remnants, some of which are relatively large. The mature dry sand prairies were dominated by Schizachyrium scoparium; other important species were Opuntia macrorhiza, Dichanthelium villosissimum, Ambrosia psilostachya, and Tephrosia virginiana. Other assemblages of prairie and exotic species were encountered in successional sand prairie communities. Generally, the mature prairie communities in these preserves and natural areas had 35 or more species present in the study plots. Savanna and closed canopy forest communities were also examined. The dry sand savannas were dominated by Quercus velutina and Q. marilandica, dry sand forests were dominated by Q. velutina, and dry-mesic sand forests were dominated by Q. alba and Q. velutina.
