Distribution, ecology, life history, genetic variation, and risk of extinction of nonhuman primates from Costa Rica.
We examined the association between geographic distribution, ecological traits, life history, genetic diversity, and risk of extinction in nonhuman primate species from Costa Rica. All of the currentExpand
Molecular systematics and phylogeography of Cebus capucinus (Cebidae, Primates) in Colombia and Costa Rica by means of the mitochondrial COII gene
We propose the first molecular systematic hypothesis for the origin and evolution of Cebus capucinus based on an analysis of 710 base pairs (bp) of the cytochrome c oxidase subunit II (COII)Expand
In vitro antimalarial activity of extracts of some plants from a biological reserve in Costa Rica.
Treatment with the usual antimalarial drugs, have induced parasite resistance, reinforcing the need to finding natural antimalarial components that would be found on plants from the forest.Expand
Genetic Variation of Mantled Howler Monkeys (Alouatta palliata) from Costa Rica1
We examined genetic diversity of howler monkeys (Alouatta palliata) from Costa Rica. Blood samples of howler monkeys were collected at various locations in Costa Rica, and electrophoresis of totalExpand
Two New Eimeria Spp. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the Dusky Rice Rat, Melanomys caliginosus, Tome 1860, in Costa Rica
Abstract:  We collected fecal samples from 9 dusky rice rats, Melanomys caliginosus (Rodentia, Cricetidae, Sigmodontinae), in a Biological Reserve in Costa Rica and found 8 (89%) to be infected withExpand
Fur mite, Listrocarpus alouattae Fain (Acari: Atopomelidae), from Alouatta palliata Gray (Primates: Cebidae) in Costa Rica
Abstract Preliminary results of a study on ectoparasites of Costa Rican monkeys are presented. Thirty six mantled howler monkeys (Alouatta palliata Gray, 1849) and 3 capuchin monkeys (Cebus capucinusExpand

A new species of Eimeria Schneider, 1875 (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the dusky rice rat Melanomys caliginosus (Tomes) (Mammalia: Rodentia) in Costa Rica
We collected faecal samples from 24 dusky rice rats, Melanomys caliginosus (Tomes) (Rodentia: Cricetidae: Sigmodontinae), in a Biological Reserve in Costa Rica, and found three (12.5%) to be infectedExpand
Yeasts Isolated from Alouatta Palliata, Ateles Geoffroyi, Cebus Capucinus and Saimiri oerstedii (Primates: Cebidae)

Prevalence of fur mites (Acari: Atopomelidae) in non-human primates of Costa Rica.
Parasites have been investigated for some New World primates; however, very little is known about ectoparasites and specifically fur mites. In this study, Alouatta palliata, Cebus capucinus, SaimiriExpand
