Effect of forest disturbance on myxomycete assemblages in the southwestern Peruvian Amazon
Although the effects of microenvironmental factors on distribution patterns in myxomycetes have been investigated, studies of the responses of this group of organisms to different regimes of forest disturbance are ...
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 ...
Brief research history and status of myxomycete conservation in the Neotropics
As it is the case of most disciplines, biological groups and regions in the world; the historical path of research on myxomycetes in the Neotropical region has been written on the basis of a series of milestones, iconic ...
First records of myxomycetes from El Salvador
Myxomycetes have been studied formally in most of Central America except for El Salvador. Even though this country is the last in the region to begin an official inventory for this group of organisms, the 37 new records ...
An update on the myxomycete biota (Amoebozoa: Myxogastria) of Colombia
Twelve new records of myxomycetes are reported for Colombia. These additions increase the number of myxomycetes known from this country to 108 species. Since the Colombian territory is part of a biodiversity-rich region in ...
What can myxomycetes tell us about floricolous microbial systems?
The study described herein was conducted in Costa Rica in an effort to generate baseline data on the association between tropical inflorescences and a group of microorganisms known as myxomycetes. The assemblage structure ...
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 ...
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. ...
¿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 ...
