Biogeographical assessment of myxomycete assemblages from Neotropical and Asian Palaeotropical forests
Aim Lowland/highland and Neotropical/Asian Palaeotropical assemblages of myxomycetes were compared to test the null hypothesis that neither species diversity nor species composition differs between the two ecoregions. ...
Does habitat loss affect tropical myxomycetes?
The effect of habitat loss on the dynamics of myxomycete assemblages has been poorly studied thus far. For this reason, a premontane moist forest surrounded by human-created pastures on the Caribbean slope of Costa Rica ...
Carbono, bosques y micorrizas: una “negación de investigación imperativa”
El estudio integrado de los sistemas biológicos asociados con el secuestro y fijación de carbono no ha sido prioritario en la determinación de los protocolos de cuantificación de este elemento. Este caso de reduccionismo ...
¿Funcionan realmente los microorganismos de montaña (MM) como estrategia de biofertilización? Un enfoque de ingeniería de biosistemas
¿Do mountain microorganisms (MM) really work as a biofertilization strategy? A biosystems engineering approach
El uso de microorganismos en aplicaciones ingenieriles, en particular desde un contexto de ingeniería de biosistemas tropicales, es útil para comprender el efecto de variables que determinan la dinámica microbiológica ...
Additions to the myxobiota of Central America
Given the fact that until recently the myxomycetes were an understudied group in Central America, it is not surprising that the number of new records for most countries is currently increasing at a steady pace. This is ...
The genus Alwisia (Myxomycetes) revalidated, with two species new to science
Based on morphological investigations and a phylogeny constructed with partial sequences of the SSU rDNA gene, we revalidate the genus Alwisia and propose the combination Alwisia bombarda Berk. & Broome to be used ...
Ecological patterns of lignicolous myxomycetes from two different forest types in Costa Rica
Lignicolous myxomycetes comprise an ecological guild that has been extensively studied in temperate areas. However, there is still incomplete information about the group for the tropics and thus, with the objective to ...
Climate change-based modeling of potential land use arrangements for coffee (coffea arabica) and forest in Costa Rica
Besides the need to reduce its own emissions, the challenge of the agricultural sector worldwide is also to adapt to a changing and more variable climate. Coffee is an important crop in Costa Rica based on cultivated area ...
Rapid assessment of the distribution of myxomycetes in a southwestern Amazon forest
The distribution of fruit bodies of myxomycetes under different ecological conditions at the Los Amigos Biological Station in southeastern Peru was studied. Six study areas were surveyed using a combined field-laboratory ...
