How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

La elaboración de un manual especiali- zado requiere de lineamientos precisos que permitan al lector poner en práctica las instrucciones definidas en el texto. La información contenida en un manual debe ser detallada para que sea lo más explí- cita y entendible para el usuario, además de ser clara en la terminología utilizada para tener un amplio a...

Environmental heterogeneity is expected to increase the richness and diversity of species. The aim of this study is to identify environmental elements that influence the richness and diversity of small, medium and large species of mammals. For the sampling of mammals, camera and Sherman traps were used at 18 sampling stations. For vegetation sampli...

Ectophylla alba is a tent‐making bat that roosts in mixed‐sex clusters comprising adults and offspring. Our goal was to determine the genetic identity of individuals belonging to different roosting groups. We tested the hypothesis of kin selection as a major force structuring group composition. We used nine microsatellites designed for E. alba to d...

The Mexican free-tailed bat (Tadarida brasiliensis) is an abundant, widely distributed species in Mexico, except for most of the Yucatán peninsula. We studied the helminth fauna of T. b. mexicana at seven localities in the State of Zacatecas in order to advance the knowledge of helminth parasites of wild vertebrates in northern-central Mexico. Eigh...

Abstract Bat acoustic libraries are important tools that assemble echolocation calls to allow the comparison and discrimination to confirm species identifications. The Sonozotz project represents the first nation-wide library of bat echolocation calls for a megadiverse country. It was assembled following a standardized recording protocol that aimed...

Genetic diversity is essential to the evolutionary and adaptive potential of a species. Several empirical genetic studies have highlighted the importance of considering both neutral and adaptive genetic variation when characterizing microevolutionary dynamics. Genes at the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) have become excellent models for rese...

The silvery fruit-eating bat (Artibeus glaucus Thomas, 1893) is a small sized phyllostomid bat with indistinct facial stripes and obscure pale edging on the ears, dark brown pelage with less contrast on the shoulders and venter, and dorsal fur that extends beyond the posterior margin of the uropatagium. It has a narrow distribution associated with...

The black bear Ursus americanus is one of the largest terrestrial carnivores that has a wide distribution in northeastern Mexico, the only country in which black bears are listed as endangered. We used 10 nuclear microsatellite loci to evaluate black bear genetic variability in 6 disjointed populations from northeastern Mexico. Non-invasive genetic...

Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) encodes a group of closely linked genes that play a central role in the vertebrate immune system, those are crucial for understanding the influence of natural selection on genetic diversity in wild populations. We examined genetic variation at the MHC class II DRB gene in 15 sampled localities of the Jamaican...

Ectophylla alba is a bat restricted to Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panamá. A technique based on Illumina paired-end sequencing of a library highly enriched for microsatellite repeats was used to develop loci. Thirteen polymorphic (tri, tetra- and pentanucleotide) microsatellites were developed and tested. All markers were genotyped on 42 di...

The White nosed coati (𝘕𝘢𝘴𝘶𝘢 𝘯𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘢) it is a highly social carnivore inhabiting mainly Neotropical forests playing an important ecological role. A technique based on 454 sequencing of a library highly enriched for microsatellite repeats was used to develop loci for Nasua narica. Twenty-four polymorphic microsatellites were developed and tested as m...
Article
Early in the plant defense response against pathogens, transcription of specific genes is activated. We studied the genes up-regulated in the early resistance reaction of Phaseolus vulgaris against Colletotrichum lindemuthianum. The effect of the light–dark transition, ultraviolet-(A–B) light, and temperature stress on these genes was also evaluate...
