Effects of Land Cover on the Movement of Frugivorous Birds in a Heterogeneous Landscape
(Plos One, 2016-06-03) [Artigo]
Movement is a key spatiotemporal process that enables interactions between animals and other elements of nature. The understanding of animal trajectories and the mechanisms that influence them at the landscape level can ...
Review of the Rare Genus Phrynomedusa Miranda-Ribeiro, 1923 (Anura: Phyllomedusidae) With Description of a New Species
(Herpetological Monographs, 2016-01-01) [Resenha]
We present the first taxonomic review of the genus Phrynomedusa since its description with diagnoses of the genus and species. We present a broad literature review of the genus and provide updates and remarks about the ...
Upland habitat loss as a threat to Pantanal wetlands
(Conservation Biology, 2016-10-01) [Artigo]
Physiological responses of Brazilian amphibians to an enzootic infection of the chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis
(Diseases Of Aquatic Organisms, 2016-01-13) [Artigo]
Pathophysiological effects of clinical chytridiomycosis in amphibians include disorders of cutaneous osmoregulation and disruption of the ability to rehydrate, which can lead to decreased host fitness or mortality. Less ...
Peak torque, reaction time, and rate of torque development of hip abductors and adductors of older women
(Physiotherapy Theory And Practice, 2016-01-02) [Artigo]
Impaired muscle function at the hip has been implicated to be a major factor related to falls in older adults. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyze the rate of torque development (RTD), reaction time (RT), and ...
Strong but permeable barriers to gene exchange between sister species of Epidendrum
(American Journal Of Botany, 2016-08-01) [Artigo]
PREMISE OF THE STUDY: The investigation of reproductive barriers between sister species can provide insights into how new lineages arise, and how species integrity is maintained in the face of interspecific gene flow. ...
Condensation of Macrocyclic Polyketides Produced by Penicillium sp DRF2 with Mercaptopyruvate Represents a New Fungal Detoxification Pathway
(Journal Of Natural Products, 2016-06-01) [Artigo]
Application of a refined procedure of experimental design and chemometric analysis to improve the production of curvularin-related polyketides by a marine-derived Penicillium sp. DRF2 resulted in the isolation and ...
Morphological and anatomical patterns in Pontederiaceae (Commelinales) and their evolutionary implications
(Aquatic Botany, 2016-02-01) [Artigo]
Pontederiaceae include six genera and approximately 35 species of aquatic plants. The family exhibits great variation in morphology that makes the characterization of species and the understanding of infrafamilial relationships ...
TERRESTRIAL FILAMENTOUS FUNGI FROM GRUTA DO CATAO (SAO DESIDERIO, BAHIA, NORTHEASTERN BRAZIL) SHOW HIGH LEVELS OF CELLULOSE DEGRADATION
(Journal Of Cave And Karst Studies, 2016-12-01) [Artigo]
Subterranean environments are oligotrophic. However, few studies have investigated the composition and function of their terrestrial mycobiota. This study examined the functional role of filamentous cave fungi in cellulose ...
Landscape complexity affects cover and species richness of weeds in Brazilian agricultural environments
(Basic and Applied Ecology, 2016-12-01) [Artigo]
The influence of the landscape context on weed communities in farmland has been investigated mostly in temperate regions, while there is a paucity of information for the Neotropics. The aim of this study was to estimate ...
