Macrofungi of the Dominican Republic : a first checklist and introduction to www.neotropicalfungi.com
Approximately 1,700 mushroom specimens were collected in the Dominican Republic from 2004 to 2021, comprising 450 species and 210 genera, as determined by morphological and/or molecular characteristics. The macrofungi ...
Tropical fungi : twelve species of lignicolous Ascomycota from the Dominican Republic
Twelve lignicolous interesting Ascomycota from the Dominican Republic collected during the winter period (November–January) in the years 2008–2011 are described and illustrated.
Diversity of polypores in the Dominican Republic: Pseudowrightoporia dominicana sp. nov. (Hericiaceae, Russulales)
The new species Pseudowrightoporia dominicana is described from the Dominican Republic based on morphological and molecular data (nrITS and nrLSU sequence analyses). It is mainly characterised by pileate basidiomata with ...
First record of Kirtland’s Warbler from the Dominican Republic and additional bird observations
Non-systematic searches for Kirtland’s Warbler (Dendroica kirtlandii) were made in the Dominican Republic during 5-18 March 1985. Here we describe the first confirmed record of Kirtland’s Warbler from the Dominican Republic. ...
Phylogenetic analysis of ecological and morphological diversification in Hispaniolan trunk‐ground anoles (Anolis cybotes group)
Anolis lizards in the Greater Antilles partition the structural microhabitats available at a given site into four to six distinct categories. Most microhabitat specialists, or ecomorphs, have evolved only once on each ...
First record of the fireworm Hermodice carunculata preying on colonies of the threatened staghorn coral Acropora Cervicornis in the southeastern outplanting sites of the Dominican Republic
[English] Several fireworms Hermodice carunculata (Pallas, 1766) were observed feeding on coral colonies or transplanted fragments of the threatened staghorn coral Acropora cervicornis (Lamarck, 1816), in outplanting sites ...
A coalescent-based estimator of genetic drift, and acoustic divergence in the Pteronotus parnellii species complex
Determining the processes responsible for phenotypic variation is one of the central tasks of evolutionary biology. While the importance of acoustic traits for foraging and communication in echolocating mammals suggests ...
Linking breeding and wintering grounds of Bicknell's Thrushes using stable isotope analyses of feathers
Previous studies have shown that natural abundance of deuterium (D), and to a lesser extent, in feathers of migrant songbirds in North America can be used to infer geographic origins of molt. We used that approach to ...
A winter distribution model for Bicknell’s Thrush (Catharus bicknelli), a conservation tool for a threatened migratory songbird
Conservation planning and implementation require identifying pertinent habitats and locations where protection and management may improve viability of targeted species. The winter range of Bicknell’s Thrush (Catharus ...
Assessing conservation status of resident and migrant birds on Hispaniola with mist-netting
We analyzed temporal trends in mist-net capture rates of resident (n = 8) and overwintering Nearctic-Neotropical migrant (n = 3) bird species at two sites in montane broadleaf forest of the Sierra de Bahoruco, Dominican ...
