La inocuidad de las proteínas cry presentes en los alimentos transgénicos - Peña Betancourt, S. D.
At present some grains, oilseeds, fodder, hormones and enzymes used in animal
production have undergone changes in its genome to contain recombinant proteins. The
aim of this review is to present scientific information on the safety of Cry proteins
present in GM maize (Bt11, Bt176), there is evidence of the safety of the insecticidal
proteins Cry1Ab, Cry1Ac, Cry1F expressed in both events, without having been able to confirm whether the Cry proteins may develop allergies in susceptible individuals, the
concentration of recombinant proteins and the herbicide glyphosate, safely secure in
animal products such as meat, milk, eggs and fish that come from animals fed with

Definición del proceso de elaboración de una bebida fermentada a partir de pulpa del café (broza) - Arguedas Gamboa, Patricia
Weather and soil conditions of Costa Rica give to the country the possibility of having an economy based in agricultural activities. Coffee had been for centuries the most important crop for economic and social development in Costa Rica. However, international agreements avoid coffee producers to give an attractive added value to the grain. They have to export the product as a dried grain. They get prices that depend of weather conditions in other countries that produce coffee. Furthermore the coffee activity produces a big quantity of agricultural residues. It is estimated that every year, around 400 000 tons of pulp...
Recurso Hídrico Superficial en la Cuenca del río Tempisque, Costa Rica: Escenarios de Disponibilidad y Demanda - Guzmán-Arias, Isabel
This paper describes the status of water resources availability and demand in the upper and middle Tempisque watershed projected up to 2030 and the proposed actions to start a planning process. The resource availability scenarios incorporate the modifications inwater flows due to land use and climate changes; these combined effects increases the problems of water shortages during the dry season. The resource demand scenarios include projections provided by the major users in the watershed, of which very few can envision growth expectations in terms of water consumption. The proposed resource planning process integrates the analysis conducted in this thesis and...

Pasos críticos en la estimación de pose en cámara: una evaluación usando la biblioteca LTI-LIB2 - Cabrera Quirós, Laura; Campos Gómez, Rafael; Castro Godínez, Jorge
An evaluation of camera pose estimation methods using a chessboard pattern is presented. Steps evaluated in the estimation process are landmark point detection and camera parameter estimation, due to their critical role in the entire process. The ChESS method and a custom heuristic method are compared for chessboard pattern detection. Both methods are objectively contrasted using True Positive and False Negative criteria. Meanwhile, Zhang’s method for pose estimation based on planar surface point distribution is used as a first approach, and then refined with a nonlinear regression through the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm. This pose estimation algorithm is evaluated through a comparison...

Esferas precolombinas de la zona sur en Costa Rica: cultura y poder en la tecnología de la piedra - De-Simone, Alexandra
This article seeks to articulate a reflection on culture and power, taking as object the Spheres produced by an ancient culture of America, in what is now the southern of Costa Rican territory. In the first part, we describe some of the symbolic dynamics of power in wich these enigmatic objects have been involved: as media spectacle, as a reinforcer of national identity, as the object of a banana community mobilization, with mention of the institutional problems around archaeological heritage. In the second part, we develop a set of notes for interpretive aesthetic analysis of the spheres, using categories of...
Las comunidades de nematodos como indicadores ambientales - Varela Benavides, Ingrid
The use of environmental indicators is a topic of current interest. It allows us to describe the condition of an ecosystem and the pressures that is being subject. And at the same time indicate the effectiveness of the mitigation practices. Nematodes are among the organisms that have been studied for their potential as environmental indicators. These animals are cosmopolitan and play an important role in all ecosystems. Furthermore the nematode community predictably changes with the disturbances to the environment. These changes are related to indicators of ecosystems functions. There are taxa indicative of conditions in particular and indices have been...

Razonamiento estratégico que promueve el comportamiento persistente: un enfoque experimental - Torres Carballo, Federico; Sandoval Sánchez, Yarima
This research aims to apply experimental techniques used to study the strategic behavior in games of Hide and Seek, as a framework for representing business situations more realistic and elaborate. To promote strategic thinking and persistence, repeated matching games between strangers are applied, and one with fixed an allocation (down payment decreases each round) with the possibility of abandonment in any round and keeping the rest of the initial allocation. In fact, the strategic reasoning is the diversion of random choices along of repetition and dropout rates of gambling, loss aversion and cultural differences that seem to frame various strategic...
