Free-ranging ticks are widely known to be restricted to the ground level of vegetation. Here, we document the capture of the tick species Amblyomma tapirellum in light traps placed in the forest canopy of Barro Colorado Island, central Panama. A total of forty eight adults and three nymphs were removed from carbon dioxide-octenol baited CDC light traps(More)
In the tropics, ticks parasitize many classes of vertebrate hosts. However, because many tropical tick species are only identifiable in the adult stage, and these adults usually parasitize mammals, most attention on the ecology of tick-host interactions has focused on mammalian hosts. In contrast, immature Neotropical ticks are often found on wild birds,(More)
With the object of investigating if Giardiasis interferes in the intestinal absorption of proteins, a study was made testing the absorption of gelatin in eleven. The determination of alpha-aminonitrogen, before giving gelatin, and the increase shown two hours later, was the criterion used to measure the capacity of absorption. Once the estimated basal had(More)

Rhizoctonia black scurf is an important disease of potato all over the world. In Chile is one of the most noticeable diseases of potato in the Southern Region. This agent causes stem necrosis and reduces yield dramatically, and affect many crops (Keijer et al, 1997). The presence of sclerotia on potato skin is one the most important features of Rhizoctonia(More)
