Loss of cheliceral clasping in Leucauge sp. (Araneae, Tetragnathidae)
In male spiders, genitalia, sexual behaviour and secondary sex morphology tend to diverge rapidly across species, presumably as a result of sexual selection. In the three Leucauge species for which pre- and copulatory ...
Making the invisible visible: methods to enhance features of tiny spider webs
The characteristics and designs of webs provide valuable information on ecology, behavior and phylogenetic relationships. Characters are often obtained from detailed analyses of web photographs. We describe new methods to ...
Comparative analysis of dengue versus chikungunya outbreaks in Costa Rica
For decades, dengue virus has been a cause of major public health concern in Costa Rica, due to its landscape and climatic conditions that favor the circumstances in which the vector, Aedes aegypti, thrives. The emergence ...

The pseudo-fundamental group scheme
Let X be any scheme defined over a Dedekind scheme S with a given section x ∈ X (S). We prove the existence of a pro-finite S-group scheme א (X,x) and a universal א (X,x)-torsor dominating all the pro-finite pointed torsors ...
