Reptile surveys reveal high species richness in areas recovering from mining activity in the Brazilian Cerrado
(Biologia, 2017-10-01) [Artigo]
Our study determines the reptile species richness, composition, and habitat use in three areas recovering from mining activity in addition to the adjacent pristine and anthropized areas of a priority region for biodiversity ...
CRYPSIS IN THE MUD CRAB PANOPEUS AMERICANUS SAUSSURE, 1857 (DECAPODA, PANOPEIDAE): RELATIONSHIP TO SEXUAL MATURITY
(Crustaceana, 2015-08-01) [Artigo]
The present study analyses the cryptic colouration patterns in mud crabs, Panopeus americanus that live in an impacted intertidal mangrove area. The main objectives were to identify the cryptic/non-cryptic transition sizes ...

B chromosome dynamics in Prochilodus costatus (Teleostei, Characiformes) and comparisons with supernumerary chromosome system in other Prochilodus species
(Comparative Cytogenetics, 2017-01-01) [Artigo]
Within the genus Prochilodus Agassiz, 1829, five species are known to carry B chromosomes, i.e. chromosomes beyond the usual diploid number that have been traditionally considered as accessory for the genome. Chromosome ...
Phytochemical study and evaluation of cytotoxicity, mutagenicity, cell cycle kinetics and gene expression of Bauhinia holophylla (Bong.) Steud. in HepG2 cells in vitro
(Cytotechnology, 2018-04-01) [Artigo]
Bauhinia holophylla (Bong.) Steud. (Fabaceae) is a plant used in Brazilian folk medicine to treat diabetes and inflammation. This study evaluated the phytochemical properties, cytotoxic, apoptotic, mutagenic/antimutagenic ...

(Symbiosis, 2016-07-01) [Artigo]
In southeastern Brazil, decapod crustaceans were found living in association with the scyphozoan jellyfish. In total, 2002 specimens of the Scyphozoa Lychnorhiza lucerna were collected of which 511 were associated decapods ...
Ecology of the spider crab Libinia ferreirae (Brachyura: Majoidea): ontogenetic shifts in habitat use
(Hydrobiologia, 2017-07-01) [Artigo]
We described the ecology of the spider crab Libinia ferreirae testing the habitat segregation during the ontogenetic shifts. Collections were performed monthly by trawling along the coastal area of Cananeia, Sao Paulo State ...
High-throughput analysis unveils a highly shared satellite DNA library among three species of fish genus Astyanax
(Scientific Reports, 2017-12-01) [Artigo]
The high-throughput analysis of satellite DNA (satDNA) content, by means of Illumina sequencing, unveiled 45 satDNA families in the genome of Astyanax paranae, with repeat unit length (RUL) ranging from 6 to 365 bp and ...
The crustacean bycatch of seabob shrimp Xiphopenaeus kroyeri (Heller, 1862) fisheries in the Cananéia region, southern coast of São Paulo, Brazil
(Regional Studies in Marine Science, 2019-09-01) [Artigo]
The bycatch of shrimp fisheries is highly diverse, but still understudied in the coast of Cananéia (São Paulo, Brazil), where shrimp fisheries are very intensive. Aiming to fill this gap, we analysed the diversity of ...
Cytotoxic and mutagenic evaluation of extracts from plant species of the Miconia genus and their influence on doxorubicin-induced mutagenicity: An in vitro analysis
(Experimental and Toxicologic Pathology, 2011-07-01) [Artigo]
The Miconia genus, a plant widely used for medicine, occurs in tropical America and its extracts and isolated compounds have demonstrated antibiotic, antitumoral, analgesic and antimalarial activities. However, no study ...
