Alaotra

Lake Alaotra (French: ) is the largest lake in Madagascar, located in Toamasina Province, in the northern central plateau. Its basin is composed of shallow freshwater lakes and marshes surrounded by areas of dense vegetation. It forms the center of the island's most important rice-growing region. It is a rich habitat for wildlife, including some rare and endangered species, as well as an important fishing ground. Lake Alaotra and its surrounding wetlands cover 7,223 square kilometres (2,789 sq mi) , and include a range of habitats, including open water, reedbeds, marshes, and rice paddies. The lake itself covers 900 square kilometres (350 sq mi) . Lake Alaotra was declared a wetland of international importance under the international Ramsar Convention on February 2, 2003. [more]

Altica

Altica is a large genus of flea beetles in the subfamily Galerucinae, with about 300 species, distributed nearly worldwide. The genus is best represented in the Neotropic region, well represented in the Nearctic and Palearctic, but occurs also in the Afrotropic, Indomalaya and Australasia. The species are similar to each other, small metallic blue-green-bronze beetles, often distinguished from each other only by the aedeagus. The species of Altica, both as larvae and as adults, are phytophagous, feeding on plant foliage of various food plant taxa, specific for each Altica species. Onagraceae and Rosaceae (mainly Rubus) are the dominant host plant families for Holarctic species. The adult Altica beetles are able to jump away when approached. [more]
