Aridity Trends in Central America: A Spatial Correlation Analysis
Trend analyses are common in several types of climate change studies. In many cases, finding evidence that the trends are different from zero in hydroclimate variables is of particular interest. However, when estimating ...
Recuento de la sismicidad en Costa Rica durante el 2019
Durante el 2019, la Red Sismológica Nacional (RSN: UCR-ICE) localizó 4602 sismos. De estos, 252 eventos (~5,5%) fueron sentidos por la población, incluyendo 24 sismos relevantes con magnitudes (Mw) entre 5,0 y 6,6. La ...
Spectral measure of color variation of black-orange-black (BOB) pattern in small parasitoid wasps (Hymenoptera: Scelionidae), a statistical approach
Small parasitoid wasps are abundant and extremely diverse, yet their colors have not been analyzed. One of the more common color patterns observed in these wasps is a black-orange-black pattern, which is especially common ...
Phenology of an urban population of Lyssomanes jemineus Peckham & Wheeler (Araneae: Salticidae) with a list of other jumping spiders from the same Costa Rican site
Jumping spiders were sampled for 24 months in a Costa Rican urban environment and one of the species collected, Lyssomanes jemineus, was observed in detail in order to document its phenology in this disturbed habitat. ...
Bile salts and derivatives: Rigid unconventional amphiphiles as dispersants, carriers and superstructure building blocks
Steroidal surfactants like bile salts have a rigid amphiphilic structure significantly different from the typical head–tail one. As a result, these molecules show peculiar features in their self-assembly behavior and ...
New insights into the molecular phylogeny of the swimming crabs of the genera Portunus Weber, 1795 and Achelous De Haan, 1833 (Brachyura: Portunidae) of the Americas
Earlier studies of swimming crabs (family Portunidae) in the Americas suggested polyphyly of Portunus Weber, 1795. Our previous molecular analyses provided evidence for a subdivision of the genus, resulting in a reassignment ...
Caracterización estructural de vesículas modificadas con quitosano
Structural Characterization of Chitosan Modified Vesicles
Caracterização estrutural de vesículas modificadas com quitosana
Vesículas a base de L-α-fosfatidilcolina (PC) y mezclas de PC/fosfogliceroles fueron caracterizadas por medio de dispersión de luz dinámica (DLS), microscopía electrónica de barrido-criogénico (Cryo-SEM) y calorimetría de ...
External Morphology of Tagosodes orizicolus (Homoptera: Delphacidae) Revealed by Scanning Electron Microscopy
A comprehensive analysis of the ultrastructure of the delphacid rice pest Tagosodes orizicolus (Muir) was undertaken using scanning electron microscopy to resolve taxonomic problems in the distinction of females and nymphs ...
Soybean protease inhibitors increase Bacillus thuringiensis subs. israelensis toxicity against Hypothenemus hampei
The coffee berry borer (Hypothenemus hampei Ferrari, CBB) is one of the most devastating pests on coffee plantations around the world. Although CBB is susceptible to the effect of δ–endotoxins ...
