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 ...
Myxomycete diversity in Costa Rica
An updated analysis of myxomycete diversity in Costa Rica is provided herein as a product of an extensive data mining-based study intended to normalize the information on myxomycetes from that country. Within the context ...
Diversity patterns, ecological associations and future of research on Costa Rican myxomycetes
The most active research period on myxomycetes in Costa Rica has taken place in the last three decades. During this time, most of the collections have been carried out and most of the scientific articles have been produced. ...
New records of genera and species of myxomycetes (Amoebozoa) from the Neotropics
During feld surveys of myxomycetes in Central America, 2 previously unrecorded genera and 4 species, viz. Craterium muscorum Ing, Dictydiaethalium dictyosporum Nann.-Bremek., Physarina echinocephala Höhn, and Stemonaria rufpes, ...
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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
¿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 ...
