A list of the species and varieties of Myxomycetes reported as occurring in Mexico is presented. The list is based on 34 references published between 1892-1992 and yields a total of 187 species and two varieties, which represent 37.4% of the world's taxa. The majority of these studies are inventories, a few are taxonomic studies and only one is an ecological study. No Myxomycetes are recorded from the states of Aguascalientes, Baja California Sur, and Sinaloa. The states of Veracruz, Nuevo Leon, Chiapas, Quintana Roo, Guerrero, Mexico, and Yucatan have, respectively, the highest number of species. Widely distributed species in the country are: Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa, Hemitrichia calyculata and Cribraria violacea. The myxomycetes of the tropical zone, despite their being poorly collected, represent 49% of the species known from México, indicating the potential richness of those ecosystems.

    Results obtained in studies of grassland myxomycetes (plasmodial slime molds or myxogastrids), based on the species appearing in moist-chamber cultures, have indicated that forb microhabitats yield considerably more collections than grass microhabitats. We experimentally evaluated this pattern...

    This essay introduces the special issue of this journal on the ecology of soil protists. This issue marks approximately the fi rst 100 years of soil protistology as a discipline as some of the fi rst studies to show that protozoa were an important part of soil ecology took place at Rothamsted,...

    A group of Fusarium isolates from slime flux similar to F. aquaeductuum produced unique, strongly curved, aseptate, C-shaped conidia. They were found to be identical to F. splendens nom. nud. Dried specimens from which F. splendens was originally isolated were reexamined and characterized as a...

    Diversity patterns cannot be properly interpreted without a theory providing criteria for their evaluation. We propose a concept to prevent artifictions caused by improper consideration of changes in observed patterns due to variation in taxon delimitation. Most biodiversity patterns concern...
