Does elevation influence the distributional patterns of tropical myxomycetes? A case study in Costa Rica
In order to test the hypothesis that elevation may be an important factor accounting for the distribution of myxomycetes in tropical forests, this project was designed and conducted in Costa Rica. Two lower elevational ...
Towards an Integrated Approach of Conducting Fungal Research in Costa Rica
Hacia un enfoque integrado de investigación micológica en Costa Rica
Em direção a um enfoque integrado de pesquisa micológica na Costa Rica
Costa Rica es un país pequeño en la región centroamericana, con una reciente historia de investigación micológica. Sin embargo, algunas diferencias comparativas con otros países de la región biológica mesoamericana han ...
First record of the myxomycete genus Colloderma in Central America
The myxomycete genus Colloderma and the species Colloderma oculatum are reported for the first time in Central America. The species was recorded at high elevations in the Talamanca Mountain Range in Costa Rica during 2014 ...
New additions to the myxobiota of Costa Rica
The most recent checklist of myxomycetes from Costa Rica reported 208 species for the country. Informational gaps detected in that work and a sustained survey effort since the publication of the checklist increased the ...
Ecological niche modeling of some Costa Rican myxomycetes
Ecological niche modeling has not been used extensively in studies of myxomycetes but can provide important information for research efforts to develop a better understanding of the ecology of these organisms. With a dataset ...
Forest Biomass, Carbon Stocks, and Macrofungal Dynamics: A Case Study in Costa Rica
There are few published studies providing information about macrofungal biology in a context of forest dynamics in tropical areas. For this study, a characterization of above-ground standing tree biomass and carbon stocks ...
What do you think of fungi? Perceptions by “educated” groups in Honduras and Costa Rica
This study was designed in order to compensate for the poor availability of information about the human-fungi interaction in Central America. We surveyed two “educated” groups of people in higher institutions within urban ...
¿Pueden los micetozoos ser usados como indicadores de salud del suelo en el contexto agrícola de Costa Rica?
El estudio de las poblaciones de micetozoos en agroecosistemas con diversas características y grados de disturbio por actividades antropogénicas es un tema con escasa investigación en el nivel mundial. Con el objeto de ...
Functional variability of macrofungal populations in four different forest types of Costa Rica
A series of functional variables, including biomass and hymenial area, were obtained for more than 4800 individual macrofungal sporocarps and correlated with a set of ecological parameters characterizing soil, climate ...
Mycetozoan incidence in soils and their potential for ecosystem quality assessment
Two experiments employing a modified version of the standard “Cavender Method” were used to evaluate the incidence patterns of myxomycete and dictyostelids associated with different soils collected across north and ...
