Uprooting and snapping of trees: structural determinants and ecological consequences
- F. Putz, P. Coley, K. Lu, A. Montalvo, A. Aiello

Stepwise discriminant analysis between snapped and uprooted trees indicated that of the variables measured, wood properties were the most important factors determining the type of death in trees.

A severe outbreak of Lepidoptera followed the 1997–98 El Niño Southern Oscillation event, during which the climate in central Panama was unusually dry, and damage levels increased by more than 250% during the outbreak.
INSECTS OF PANAMA AND MESOAMERICA Selected Studies
- Diomedes A Quintero, A. Aiello
This research presents a novel scenario that combines the efforts of a large number of investigators to systematically study the behaviour of bees in the aftermath of a major infestation.
Molecular evidence for a diverse green algal community growing in the hair of sloths and a specific association with Trichophilus welckeri (Chlorophyta, Ulvophyceae)

The genetic diversity of the eukaryotic community present in fur of all six extant species of sloth is investigated and the case for symbiosis between sloths and Trichophilus welckeri is streghtens.
Sloth hair: unanswered questions
- A. Aiello
Although no proof has been provided nor alternatives explored, most biologists assume that the sloth/alga association is of mutual benefit, the alga obtaining shelter and thesloth gaining camouflage.
Speciation in two neotropical butterflies: extending Haldane's rule

The data suggest that Haldane's rule might be extended to cover any decrease in hybrid fitness and that mating propensity may provide a sensitive and comparable means of assessing such decreases.
INFERENCES FROM A RAPIDLY MOVING HYBRID ZONE

The concordance of morphological and mtDNA clines between 1994 and 2000, in spite of hybrid zone movement, suggests strong epistasis between the mitochondrial genome and nuclear loci, and may be more important in biogeography and evolution than generally realized.

Foodplant and oviposition records for Panamanian Lycaenidae and Riodinidae
- R. Robbins, A. Aiello
- Environmental Science, Biology
This work presents larval foodplant and female oviposition records for 15 Panamanian butterfly species in the Lycaenidae and Riodinidae, and discusses some possible consequences of flower-feeding by larvae and comment on the extent of myrmecophily inPanamanian riodinids.
