“Nivicolous Stemonitales from the Austral Andes: analysis of morphological variability, distribution and phenology as a first step toward testing the large-scale coherence of species and biogeographical properties”.

April 1, 2015: Ronikier and Lado's new article on nivicolous Stemonitales has just come out in Mycologia. This fine-scale analysis demonstrates the existence of a high intraspecific morphological variability, possibly related to isolation and independent evolutionary processes among remote populations, in most of the studied species. However, a few of them show a uniform [...]

“Didymium xerophilum, a new myxomycete from the tropical Andes” has been published in Mycologia.

February 12, 2015: This article reports the discovery of a new species of the order Physarales from Peru and Argentina. It includes both morphological and molecular data as well as some life cycle observations. A phylogenetic analysis supports its identity as a new species and interestingly, collections were found at almost 5 000 m elevation, [...]

“Nivicolous Stemonitales from the Austral Andes: analysis of morphological variability, distribution and phenology as a first step toward testing the large-scale coherence of species and biogeographical properties”.

01 Abril 2015: Un nuevo artículo de Ronikier y Lado sobre Stemonitales nivícolas acaba de aparecer en Mycologia. Este detallado análisis demuestra la existencia de variabilidad morfológica intraespecífica, relacionada con condiciones de aislamiento y procesos de evolución independiente entre poblaciones distantes, en la mayoría de especies estudiadas. Sin embargo, también pone de manifiesto [...]

“Didymium xerophilum, a new myxomycete from the tropical Andes” ha sido publicado en Mycologia.

12 Febreo 2015: Este artículo reseña el descubrimiento de una nueva especie, perteneciente al orden Physarales, en Perú y Argentina. El estudio incluye datos morfológicos y moleculares, así como observaciones sobre el ciclo de vida. El análisis filogenético de los datos apoya su identidad como nueva especie. Curiosamente, las colecciones estudiadas fueron encontradas a casi [...]

An article with exciting new data on biodiversity of myxomycetes has been just published!

January 12, 2015:  “Myxomycete diversity of the Patagonian Steppe and bordering areas in Argentina” has just been published in the journal Anales del Jardín Botánico de Madrid. This research study, led by Carlos Lado, forms part of the Myxotropic Project, and reports the first survey to cover such an extensive area in South America. A total of 133 [...]

Members of our team participated in “Protist 2014”

August 3, 2014:  “Protist 2014”, a joint meeting of the International Society of Protistologists (ISOP) and the International Society for Evolutionary Protistology (ISEP) held in Banff (Canada). This event, organized Joel Dacks`s Lab, brought together experts on different topics such as molecular ecology, next-generation sequencing evolution of multicellularity. María Aguilar, Postdoctoral Fellow in Dacks`s Lab [...]

Myxomycetes on the slopes of Mount Huascarán, the highest mountain in the Tropics

June 13, 2014:  The MYXOTROPIC research team has just returned from an expedition to Peru to collect and analyze samples on the western face of the Tropical Andes, in the Cordillera Blanca. Finding Myxomycetes on the upper slopes of Mount Huascarán, the highest mountain of the Tropical Andes, with its peak of 6,768 meters, is yet [...]
