Three new species of the genus Tenuipalpus (Acariformes: Tenuipalpidae), T. tapiae sp. nov., T. apichai sp. nov., and T. nambii sp. nov. collected in Semidecidual Forest native plants in the northwest of the state of São ...
Maternal obesity disturbs the postnatal development of gonocytes in the rat without impairment of testis structure at prepubertal age
(Reproduction, 2013-12-01) [Artigo]
In this study, we evaluated whether maternal obesity (MO) affects testis development and gonocyte differentiation in the rat from 0.5 to 14.5 postnatal days. Male Wistar rats were used at 0.5, 4.5, 7.5, and 14.5 days post ...
True branched nostocalean cyanobacteria from tropical aerophytic habitats and molecular assessment of two species from field samples
(Revista de Biologia Tropical, 2013-03-01) [Artigo]
Aerophytic cyanobacteria are commonly found growing on rocks, tree trunks and soil, but the diversity of these organisms is still poorly known. This complex group is very problematic considering the taxonomic arrangement ...
Morphological aspects of the testes of 18 species of terrestrial of Heteroptera from Northwestern Sao Paulo (Brazil)
