FRUGIVORY OF SALVIN'S CURASSOW IN A RAINFOREST OF THE COLOMBIAN AMAZON
TLDR
It is proposed that Salvin's Curassows are mainly seed predators because most seeds ingested by the study group were preyed upon, and seed size was critical in determining seed fate. Expand
Enzyme polymorphism in Endotrypanum and numerical analysis of isoenzyme data.
TLDR
The data indicate that E. schaudinni is a species complex and the heterogeneous population showed, however, no correlation with the origin (i.e. host species involved or geographic area of isolation) of Endotrypanum stocks. Expand
Trans-sialidase and sialidase activities discriminate between morphologically indistinguishable trypanosomatids.
TLDR
The measurement of trans-sialidase and sialid enzyme activities permits the differentiation of parasites frequently found in the same insect vectors that are difficult to distinguish, such as T. cruzi and T. rangeli. Expand
Infection rates and genotypes of Trypanosoma rangeli and T. cruzi infecting free-ranging Saguinus bicolor (Callitrichidae), a critically endangered primate of the Amazon Rainforest.
TLDR
This is the first survey of trypanosomiasis in a critically endangered species of tamarin, Saguinus bicolor (Callitrichidae), from the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest, where Trypanosoma cruzi and T. rangeli are commonly infective to non-human primates and several mammals. Expand
Development of Endotrypanum (Kinetoplastida:Trypanosomatidae) in experimentally infected phlebotomine sand flies (Diptera:Psychodidae).
TLDR
Variation in the susceptibility to infection with Endotrypanum among and within sand fly species is indicated and individual variation in the distribution and survival of parasites within the guts of flies in each group is identified. Expand
Pollinator guild organization and its consequences for reproduction in three synchronopatric species of Tibouchina (Melastomataceae)
TLDR
The avoidance of direct competition for pollen and no pollinator partitioning among the synchronopatric species of Tibouchina may reflect a facilitative interaction among these pioneer plants. Expand
