Health related quality of life is differently associated with leisure-time physical activity intensities according to gender: a cross-sectional approach
(Health And Quality Of Life Outcomes, 2014-08-18) [Artigo]
Background: Several studies have demonstrated a positive association between physical activity (PA) and health-related quality of life (HRQL). However, studies have suggested that this association depends both on the PA ...
Humidity levels drive reproductive modes and phylogenetic diversity of amphibians in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest
(Journal of Biogeography, 2012-09-01) [Artigo]
Aim The diversity of reproductive modes among amphibians constitutes a striking example of how differences in the biology of species provide important explanations for species distribution patterns on a broad scale. We ...
Using phenology to assess urban heat islands in tropical and temperate regions
(International Journal of Climatology, 2013-12-01) [Artigo]
The study of urban phenology is relevant to assess the effects of heat islands and the potential impacts of climate change on plants. Temperature is the main factor regulating plant development in moist/temperate regions. ...
Thresholds in the relationship between functional diversity and patch size for mammals in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest
(Animal Conservation, 2015-12-01) [Artigo]
Patch size affects abundance and diversity of mammal species, but there is little information on threshold regarding this relationship or relating it to functional diversity. Therefore, we aimed with this study to (1) ...
Bamboo overabundance alters forest structure and dynamics in the Atlantic Forest hotspot
(Biological Conservation, 2012-03-01) [Artigo]
With fast growth rates and clonal reproduction, bamboos can rapidly invade forest areas, drastically changing their original structure. In the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, where recent mapping efforts have shown that woody ...

(Zootaxa, 2015-03-24) [Artigo]
Five new species of the family Pterolichidae are described from two common non-parasitic cuckoo species of the subfamily Crotophaginae (Cuculiformes: Cuculidae) in Brazil: Aniacarus ani sp. n. from the Smooth-billed Ani, ...
Variation in body size of Phanocerus clavicornis Sharp, 1882 (Coleoptera: Elmidae: Larainae) in Atlantic Rainforest streams in response to hydraulic disturbance
(Brazilian Journal Of Biology, 2014-11-01) [Artigo]
In this study, patterns of body size of Phanocerus clavicornis Sharp, 1882 (Coleoptera: Elmidae: Larainae) were investigated along a gradient of change in speed of flow conditions in streams of low order in the Atlantic ...
Road Permeability Index: Evaluating the heterogeneous permeability of roads for wildlife crossing
(Ecological Indicators, 2019-04-01) [Artigo]
Roads impede ecological flows through landscapes, mainly by acting as barriers to animal movement, reducing habitat connectivity and increasing animal mortality. Road permeability is not homogeneous, and animals perceive ...
