Step‐by‐Step Pipeline for the Ecological Analysis of Endophytic Fungi using ITS nrDNA Data
The nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) is accepted as the genetic marker or barcode of choice for the identification of fungal samples. Here, we present a protocol to analyze fungal ITS data, from ...
Alimentacion de pichones, exito reproductivo y notas sobre cuido parental en yiguirros (Turdus grayi): el rol de las hembras y machos
Nestling feeding, nest success, and notes of parental care in the Clay-colored Thrush (Turdus grayi): the role of females and males
Las hembras frecuentemente invierten ma ́s que los machos en cuido parental, pero en sistemas sociales monogamos, los machos invierten tanto como las hembras en el cuido de su progenie y se estima que esta contribucion ...
When a little is enough: cocoon web of Kapogea cyrtophoroides (Araneae: Araneidae) induced by Hymenoepimecis heidyae (Ichneumonidae: Pimplinae)
The final instar larvae of the koinobiont ectoparasitoids in the Polysphincta group of genera induce their host spiders to construct webs that protect the wasp pupa during its development. It has been hypothesized that ...
The water striders (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Gerridae) of Costa Rica: new species, checklist, and new records
Brachymetra bernaldi Cordeiro, sp. nov. (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Gerridae) from Heredia, Costa Rica, is herein described, illustrated, and compared with congeners. The new species resembles B. albinervus (Amyot & Serville, ...
Thin-layer black phosphorus/GaAs heterojunction pn diodes
Owing to its high carrier mobility and thickness-tunable direct band gap, black phosphorus emerges as a promising component of optoelectronic devices. Here, we evaluate the device characteristics of p-n heterojunction ...
C1 compounds shape the microbial community of an abandoned century-old oil exploration well
The search for microorganisms that degrade hydrocarbons is highly relevant because it enables the bioremediation of these substances cheaply and without dangerous by-products. In this work, we studied the microbial communities ...
Low-cost approaches for the removal of terbuthylazine from agricultural wastewater: Constructed wetlands and biopurification system
(Chemical Engineering Journal, 2018)
Making the invisible visible: methods to enhance features of tiny spider webs
The characteristics and designs of webs provide valuable information on ecology, behavior and phylogenetic relationships. Characters are often obtained from detailed analyses of web photographs. We describe new methods to ...
Impact of oxytetracycline and bacterial bioaugmentation on the efficiency and microbial community structure of a pesticide-degrading biomixture
(Environmental Science and Pollution Research, 2018)
The influence of temperature and pH on bacterial community composition of microbial mats in hot springs from Costa Rica
We used the 16S rRNA gene pyrosequencing approach to investigate the microbial diversity and community composition in several Costa Rican hot springs alongside the latitudinal axis of the country, with a range of temperatures ...
