Recolecta de artrópodos para prospección de la biodiversidad en el Área de Conservación Guanacaste, Costa Rica
TLDR
The results and collection practices for obtaining arthropod samples to be studied as potential sources of new medicines in a bioprospecting effort are described and the collecting strategy included the generation of several samples from same species, separated according to differences in life stages, collecting sites, ecosystems. Expand
Ecological and evolutionary bioprospecting: using aposematic insects as guides to rainforest plants active against disease
TLDR
The results suggest that the presence of aposematic, herbivorous insects can be used to facilitate the identification of plants with compounds active against important human diseases. Expand
Setting up tropical biodiversity for conservation through non-damaging use: participation by parataxonomists
Summary 1. A parataxonomist is a resident, field-based, biodiversity inventory specialist who is largely on-the-job trained out of the rural work force and makes a career of providing specimens andExpand
Natural Products Research Partnerships with Multiple Objectives in Global Biodiversity Hot Spots: Nine Years of the International Cooperative Biodiversity Groups Program
The International Cooperative Biodiversity Groups (ICBGs) have been among the most ambitious bioprospecting endeavors because of the explicit intent to use the drug discovery and bioinventoryExpand
Biodiversity Prospecting: The INBio Experience
Bioprospecting is defined as the systematic search for genes, compounds, designs, and organisms that might have a potential economic use and might lead to a product development. In 1991, Costa Rica'sExpand
In vitro antimalarial activity of extracts of some plants from a biological reserve in Costa Rica.
TLDR
Fresh and dry extracts of roots, bark, leaves, flowers and fruits of 25 plants from a biological reserve in Costa Rica were studied in vitro for the presence of substances with antimalarial activity, the first systematic study of this kind ever realized in a circumscribed and protected area of Costa Rica. Expand
Biodiversity conservation and non-governmental organisations in Oaxaca, Mexico
The lack of local scale biodiversity assessment in Oaxacan conservation is examined. Biodiversity assessment is a prerequisite of systematic, scientifically directed conservation and in Oaxaca, as inExpand
Concentración natural de compuestos antimaláricos en artrópodos tropicales (in vitro)
TLDR
The detection of antimalaric components in arthropod species led to the identification of plants with promissory antimalary components and the formation of in vitro models in which the effect of the extract was determined by staining of the parasites with cresil brilliant blue. Expand
Bioprospecting arrangements: cooperation between the north and the south.
The ICBG (International Cooperative Biodiversity Groups) program, through which institutions located in biotechnology-rich countries in the North collaborate with institutions located in theExpand
Evaluación in vivo de la actividad antimalárica de 25 plantas provenientes de una Reserva de Conservación Biológica de Costa Rica
Se realizo una evaluacion in vivo de la actividad antimalarica de las hojas, flores, frutos, corteza y raiz de 25 plantas de la Reserva Biologica Alberto Manuel Brenes (REBAMB), situada en San Ramon,Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that GLA and AA interact bactericidally on P. aeruginosa isolates, inducing the development of strains resistant to beta-lactams and to aminoglycosides; their action might be mediated through their peroxides. Expand
