Phenology of myxomycetes in Turrialba, Costa Rica
Long-term monitoring and phenological patterns of microbial communities are rare in the scientific literature. Myxomycetes have life cycle characteristics that allow both to be documented. The present study summarizes ...
Mosses as spore traps for myxomycetes
Small-mesh nylon bags filled with autoclaved samples of mosses were placed out in the field in northwest Arkansas and central Costa Rica to assess the extent to which mosses could serve as spore traps for myxomycetes. The ...
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 ...
Comparative analysis on datasets of myxomycetes associated with boreal, temperate and tropical regions of North America
Datasets from boreal (Denali National Park, United States), temperate (Great Smoky Mountains National Park, United States) and tropical (La Selva Biological Station, Costa Rica) regions of North America were subjected ...
Myxomycete colonization on translocated and non-translocated dead leaves from temperate and tropical forests
Samples of dead leaves on the forest floor were collected from a locality in central Costa Rica and another locality in northwest Arkansas in the United States and then were placed in fine-mesh nylon bags, autoclaved and ...
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 ...
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, ...
Macroecology of high-elevation myxomycete assemblages in the northern Neotropics
A number of recent studies have been directed towards developing a more complete understanding of myxomycete ecology throughout the world. However, the lack of comparative data obtained using standard methodologies makes ...
New additions to the myxobiota of Peru
Recent efforts to study myxomycetes in many areas of the world have resulted in a considerable increase in the number and quality of regional species lists, especially during the last decade. However, in South America ...
Myxomycetes within ecotones in temperate and tropical forests
Mixomicetes en ecotonos forestales de bosques templados y tropicales
Mixomicetos em ecótonos florestais de bosques temperados e tropicais
Ecotones are interesting portions of forests where microorganisms can be studied for monitoring and diversity purposes. Given the faster life cycle of these organisms, their study in such a context is important to develop ...
