Florestina is shown to consist of six annual species occurring mostly in arid and semiarid regions of Mexico. Florestina species are morphologically similar and consequently phylogenetic relationships within the genus are poorly understood. We present a phylogenetic study based on morphological characters, DNA sequences of nuclear non-coding spacers (ETS(More)
1. The structure and physiological properties of the somatic neuromuscular system of the nematode Ascaris lumbricoides var. suum are discussed taking into account early work from this laboratory, the results of other workers, and experiments in progress. 2. Anatomically, the central feature of the somatic musculature is the presence of a specialized(More)
The resplendent Quetzal (Pharomachrus mocinno) is an endemic Mesoamerican bird species of conservation concern. Within this species, the subspecies P. m. costaricensis and P. m. mocinno, have been recognized by apparent morphometric differences; however, presently there is no sufficient data for confirmation. We analyzed eight morphometric attributes of the(More)
The endemic plant species with extremely narrow geographical range (<100 km 2) often have few populations of small size and tend to be more vulnerable to extinction by genetic drift and inbreeding effects. For these species, we tested if intraspecific genetic diversity can be applied to identify conservation priorities. The biological model was Mammillaria(More)
