Can the location of the isolation laboratory affect the generation of myxomycete data using moist chambers? An experiment in the Neotropics
The moist chamber technique, as it is used in myxomycete research, is an extremely useful method to optimize project resources. However, as it occurs with any laboratory-based protocol, the usefulness of this technique ...
Occurrence of pharmaceuticals, hazard assessment and ecotoxicological evaluation of wastewater treatment plants in Costa Rica
The continuous release of pharmaceuticals from WWTP effluents to freshwater is a matter of concern, due to their potential effects on non-target organisms. The occurrence of pharmaceuticals in WWTPs and their associated ...
Myxomycete ecology in urban areas: rapid assessment from two cities
Urban ecology has been an understudied topic in myxomycete research. For that reason, the present investigation aimed to generate data related to myxomycetes in urban areas of the Neotropical region. With an approach of ...
Mass movement of individuals at Carara National Park
The video shows the movement of individuals of the Green-and-Black Poison Dart Frog, Dendrobates auratus, under rainy conditions. The filmed individuals moved close to the researchers and in close proximity of conspecifics. ...
Potential vibratory signal performed by a male
(English) The video shows the vibratory movement of the fourth toe performed by a male of the Green-and-Black Poison Dart Frog, Dendrobates auratus, at Carara National Park. The toe-tapping behaviour was performed in front ...
Contrasting Thermal Strategies of Montane Neotropical Bats at High Elevations
In the Neotropics, captive vespertilionid bats substantially reduce their metabolic rate at low ambient temperatures, similar to their temperate counterparts, whereas the ability of phyllostomids to lower metabolic rate ...
