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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
