A review of the Costa Rican myxomycetes (Amebozoa)
There has not been a comprehensive review of the taxonomic composition of the assemblage of myxomycetes known from Costa Rica since 1975. As a result of a series of studies carried out in the country during the last decade, ...
Rapid assessment of myxomycetes in Isla Calero and Isla Brava, Costa Rica
The geography of the northeasternmost section of Costa Rica corresponds to river islands sparsely populated and highly protected for biological conservation. Myxomycetes had not been studied in that part of such Central ...
Distribution and ecology of myxomycetes in the high-elevation oak forests of Cerro Bellavista, Costa Rica
Myxomycetes associated with a high-elevation (.3000 m) oak forest in the Talamanca Range of Costa Rica were studied for 7 mo. Field collections were supplemented with collections obtained from moist chamber cultures ...
Myxomycete ecology along an elevation gradient on Cocos Island, Costa Rica
The marine biota of Cocos Island is well known; however, the terrestrial biota is poorly understood. In an effort to document the myxomycetes of the island and to determine their ecological distribution along an elevation ...
New records of myxomycetes from high-elevation areas of Mexico and Guatemala
Surveys of four high-elevation study areas in central Mexico and northwestern Guatemala were carried out to obtain baseline information on the species of myxomycetes present. All study areas were sampled in 2006 and 2007. ...
Ecological patterns of Costa Rican myxomycetes
Ecological patterns of tropical myxomycetes have been subjected to study only during the last decade. An exhaustive analysis of an extensive dataset for a single tropical country is lacking. For this reason, the present ...
Hydrogen production by immobilized Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803
The ability of the immobilized Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 cells to produce hydrogen via an indirect light driven process was investigated. Cells were successfully immobilized in a calcium alginate gel matrix. Beads were ...
Brachiopods, sipunculans, enteropneusts and metals from two estuarine tidal flats, Pacific, Costa Rica
Braquiópodos, sipuncúlidos, enteropneustos y metales en dos planicies estuarinas de marea, Pacífico, Costa Rica.
Reports on the abundances and on metal concentrations in intertidal estuarine invertebrates from the Eastern Tropical Pacific are rare. Thus, the objectives of this report are to make accessible data on the abundances ...
Abundance and Distribution Patterns of Thunnus albacares in Isla del Coco National Park through Predictive Habitat Suitability Models
Information on the distribution and habitat preferences of ecologically and commercially important species is essential for their management and protection. This is especially important as climate change, pollution, and ...
