Article
Three new species of Luticola are described from lotic ecosystems in Andakí Municipal Natural Park, located in the Andean-Amazon region on the eastern flank of the eastern Andes mountain range in Colombia. Size and morphological features of the three new species, L. caquetensis Kociolek, Simonato & Núñez-Avellaneda sp. nov., L. andakiesiorum Simona...

Background. Microorganisms have traditionally been considered cosmopolitan. Nevertheless, recent studies of diverse groups demonstrated that this is an erroneous concept. Reviews of diatoms from the Neotropics have shown high biodiversity and numerous endemic species. Colombia has great habitat diversity in relatively small areas due to its latitud...

This work was carried under the project for developing a biological water quality index for rivers of lowland waters of Colombia based on aquatic biological communities. A total of 165 sites were sampled considering the hidrogeomorphological variability among the studied rivers. In all sites, periphyton samples were collected by brushing rocks and...

The genus Nupela comprises ca. 50 species that generally have a distribution restricted by bioclimatic frontiers. As part of an integrated analysis of the diatom flora of Colombia, in this study we focused our interest on the genus Nupela from lowland waters. Periphyton samples were collected from 150 sites of lotic water bodies in Colombia, taking...

Este artículo forma parte de una serie de estudios que se llevan a cabo para realizar un inventario de la flora diatomológica de Colombia. En él se describen dos especies del género Surirella -S. antioquiensis S.E. Sala, J.J. Ramírez, Plata-Díaz & Vouilloud y S. rafaelii J.J. Ramírez & S.E. Sala- provenientes de sistemas lénticos y lóticos localiza...

A review of literature, museum collections and original data from different authors was made in order to gather the records of freshwater diatom species in Colombia. A preliminary list for the country includes 681 species distributed in 87 genera. Among them Eunotia (98 sp), Navicula (66 sp), Pinnularia (64 sp), Nitzschia (49 sp) and Gomphonema (47...

Description of the main environmental factors that structure phytoplankton dynamic in 27 swamps of the Momposina Depression located in the area of influence of the Cicuco-Boquete oil field. According to the results, the parameters that determined the variations in the physics and chemistry of the water are related to system hydrology, followed by t...

In the tropical and subtropical regions, there is a large number of species which has not been yet described. The high possibility of extinction makes their inventory a priority. In this paper, 23 diatoms taxa from Andean lotic systems and lentic waterbodies localized in the Departments of Antioquia, Santander and Chocó, Colombia, are analyzed with...

En dos sistemas lóticos del páramo de Santurbán, durante lluvia y sequía, se seleccionaron tres tramos de muestreo: nacimiento, zona media y río, evaluando en cada tramo la influencia de las variables ambientales en la estructura del ensamblaje de diatomeas perifíticas. Un nálisis de componentes principales evaluó la variación ambiental y mediante...

Three sample zones: the headwater zone, the mid flow zone and the stream zone were selected in two lotic system of the Páramo de Santurbán, during rainy and dry season. In each zone the influence of physical, chemical and hydrological variables on the structure of the benthic diatom assemblage were evaluated. A component principal analysis evaluate...

This is a project to document biological diversity in the Amazonian Andean region where there are large information gaps, since many of these areas have not been inventoried in the last 60 years because of the restrictions imposed by the armed conflict.
