Efecto de la perturbación del bosque en la tasa de visitas de murciélagos polinizadores y sus consecuencias sobre el éxito reproductivo y sistema de apareamiento en árboles de la familia Bombacaceae.
La fragmentación y la perturbación del bosque pueden tener efectos deletéreos sobre el éxito reproductivo y el sistema de apareamiento de los árboles tropicales, además de modificar el compartimiento de sus polinizadores. ...
Genetic diversity in Oryza glumaepatula wild rice populations in Costa Rica and possible gene flow from O. sativa
Wild crop relatives are an important source of genetic diversity for crop improvement. Diversity estimates are generally lacking for many wild crop relatives. The objective of the present study was to analyze how genetic ...
Molecular characterization and genetic diversity of Jatropha curcas L. in Costa Rica
We estimated the genetic diversity of 50 Jatropha curcas samples from the Costa Rican germplasm bank using 18 EST-SSR, one G-SSR and nrDNA-ITS markers. We also evaluated the phylogenetic relationships among samples using ...
Genetic diversity and reproductive biology of the dioecious and epiphytic bromeliad Aechmea mariae-reginae (Bromeliaceae) in Costa Rica: implications for its conservation
Ecological traits and pollination mode associated with dioecious sexual expression in plants are likely to influence their reproductive success and levels of genetic diversity. Dioecy is an uncommon condition in Bromeliaceae. ...
Efectos de la Fragmentación del Bosque Tropical Seco Sobre el Éxito Reproductivo y la Estructura Genética del Arbol Samanea saman
Effects of Dry Tropical Forest Fragmentation on the Reproductive Success and Genetic Structure of the Tree Samanea saman
Tropical trees are particularly vulnerable to forest fragmentation because of their low densities, self-incompatibilty system, and high rates of outbreeding. Forest fragmentation is likely to decrease gene flow, increase ...
Effect of barriers and distance on song, genetic, and morphological divergence in the highland endemic Timberline Wren (Thryorchilus browni, Troglodytidae)
Populations may become isolated by distance, geographic barriers or both. Isolated populations often diverge in behavioral, morphological and genetic traits as a result of reduced inter-population gene flow. Highland species ...
Lack of early inbreeding depression and distribution of selfing rates in the neotropical emergent tree Ceiba pentandra: Assessment from several reproductive events
Premise of the study: Selfing and mixed mating systems are prevalent in many flowering plants. Purging of genetic load can occur in these species, reducing negative effects of selfing. Long‐term studies of the temporal and ...
Effect of fragmentation on the Costa Rican dry forest avifauna
Deforestation and changes in land use have reduced the tropical dry forest to isolated forest patches in northwestern Costa Rica. We examined the effect of patch area and length of the dry season on nestedness of the entire ...
Genetic Diversity and Spatial Genetic Structure of an Epiphytic Bromeliad in Costa Rican Montane Secondary Forest Patches
Information on genetic variation and its distribution in tropical plant populations relies mainly on studies of ground‐rooted species, while genetic information of epiphytic plants is still limited. Particularly, the effect ...
