Orchid conservation in a private preserve at Palmares, Costa Rica
Madre Verde Private Preserve, located in Palmares (Alajuela, Costa Rica) protects a forest relict surrounded by pastures, bushes and abandoned agriculture grounds. An inventory was conducted in this preserve to determine ...
Population and genetic structure of two dioecious timber species Virola surinamensis and Virola koschnyi (Myristicaceae) in southwestern Costa Rica
Selective logging regulations generally fail to account for sex ratios, sex size distribution, spatial patterns and genetic structure in dioecious timber species. Furthermore, sympatric congeneric dioecious tropical species ...
Lack of early inbreeding depression and distribution of selfing rates in the neotropical emergent tree Ceiba pentandra: Assessment from several reproductive events
Premise of the study: Selfing and mixed mating systems are prevalent in many flowering plants. Purging of genetic load can occur in these species, reducing negative effects of selfing. Long‐term studies of the temporal and ...
Genetic Diversity and Spatial Genetic Structure of an Epiphytic Bromeliad in Costa Rican Montane Secondary Forest Patches
Information on genetic variation and its distribution in tropical plant populations relies mainly on studies of ground‐rooted species, while genetic information of epiphytic plants is still limited. Particularly, the effect ...
Updated checklist and analysis of completeness of the marine fish fauna of Isla del Coco, Pacific of Costa Rica
Isla del Coco, Costa Rica, is one of the five groups of oceanic islands of the Eastern Tropical Pacific (ETP), and is considered one of the most diverse. Since the mid-19th century, it has been the target of a number of ...
Growth and hydrogen production of outdoor cultures of Synechocystis PCC 6803
Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803, a freshwater cyanobacterium, was cultivated outdoors in a 50 L tubular photobioreactor to study the acclimation of cells to solar light in cultures grown at different initial mean biomass ...
Size at maturity of the Pacific bearded brotula (Ophidiidae: Brotula clarkae): a commercially exploited species in the Pacific of Costa Rica
Talla de madurez sexual del congrio rosado (Ophidiidae: Brotula clarkae): una especie de importancia comercial en el Pacífico de Costa Rica
The deep-water shrimp fishery is of great commercial importance along the Pacific coast of Latin America. In Costa Rica, shrimp resources have declined considerably over the last decade. Therefore, fisheries have shifted ...
Recolecta de artrópodos para prospección de la biodiversidad en el Área de Conservación Guanacaste, Costa Rica
(Revista de Biología Tropical 52(1): 119-132, 2004, 2004)
This study describes the results and collection practices for obtaining arthropod samples to be studied as potential sources of new medicines in a bioprospecting effort. From 1994 to 1998, 1800 arthropod samples of 6-10 g ...
Movements and morphology under sexual selection: tsetse fly genitalia
(Ethology Ecology & Evolution 22: 385–391, 2010, 2010-04-17)
SHÖN (2009, Ethology Ecology & Evolution 21: 161–172) pointed out that in order to understand the functional morphology of sexually selected structures that are used as signaling devices in birds, it is crucial to ...
Possible Fisherian Changes in Female Mate-Choice Criteria in a Mass-Reared Strain of Ceratitis capitata (Diptera: Tephritidae)
(Annals of the Entomological Society of America Vol. 93, no. 2, 343-345, 2000)
The frequent interruption of male courtship in highly crowded mass-rearing cages of Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) was correlated with changes in both male courtship and female acceptance criteria in a mass-reared Costa ...
