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. ...
This is a slideshow produced for the 10th International Congress on the Systematics and Ecology of Myxomycetes, held in the city of Turrialba (UCR, Sede del Atlántico) in February 2020.
Proceedings of the ICSEM10 Costa Rica
Este documento corresponde con la memoria completa del X Congreso Internacional sobre Sistemática y Ecología de Mixomicetes (ICSEM10) celebrado en la Sede del Atlántico de la Universidad de Costa Rica entre el 25 y el 28 ...
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 ...
Can the location of the isolation laboratory affect the generation of myxomycete data using moist chambers? An experiment in the Neotropics
The moist chamber technique, as it is used in myxomycete research, is an extremely useful method to optimize project resources. However, as it occurs with any laboratory-based protocol, the usefulness of this technique ...
Myxomycete ecology in urban areas: rapid assessment from two cities
Urban ecology has been an understudied topic in myxomycete research. For that reason, the present investigation aimed to generate data related to myxomycetes in urban areas of the Neotropical region. With an approach of ...
New records of myxomycetes for the state of Veracruz from Cofre de Perote National Park
Most of the species of myxomycetes from Mexico are well documented, but their patchy geographical and temporal distribution responds to the individual efforts carried out in different areas of the territory over time. As ...
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 ...
Taxonomic Keys and Plates from The Myxomycetes
In 1969, George W. Martin and Constantine J. Alexopoulos published a remarkable work on myxomycetes. Their monograph on this group of organisms became one of the references to the taxonomy and geographical distribution of ...
Sexual size dimorphism and ecomorphology of the Berthold’s bush anole (Polychrus gutturosus) in Costa Rica: Preliminary data
Sexual size dimorphism (SSD) is the result of sexual or natural selection operating differently on the body sizes of females and males. Males of most lizard species are larger than females, suggesting intrasexual selection on ...
