Gastrointestinal nematodes of the lizard Tropidurus hispidus (Squamata: Tropiduridae) from a semi-arid region of north-eastern Brazil
(Journal of Helminthology, 2013-12-01) [Artigo]
The tropidurid lizard Tropidurus hispidus has a wide distribution in South America. However, knowledge about its helminth fauna is patchy and has been reported for only a few localities along its range of distribution. ...
Spatial-temporal variation of parasites in Cnemidophorus ocellifer (Teiidae) and Tropidurus hispidus and Tropidurus semitaeniatus (Tropiduridae) from Caatinga areas in northeastern Brazil
(Parasitology Research, 2014-03-01) [Artigo]
Parasites are natural regulators of their host populations. Despite this, little is known about variations in parasite composition (spatially or temporally) in environments subjected to water-related periodic stress such ...
Serology, isolation, and molecular detection of Leptospira spp. from the tissues and blood of rats captured in a wild animal preservation centre in Brazil
(Preventive Veterinary Medicine, 2014-07-01) [Artigo]
To elucidate the occurrence and epidemiology of leptospirosis in rats cohabitating with forest animals, 13 rats were captured at seven locations of the Centre for the Conservation of Wild Fauna (CCWF) in Sao Paulo state, ...
Mycorrhization alters foliar soluble amino acid composition and influences tolerance to Pb in Calopogonium mucunoides
(Theoretical And Experimental Plant Physiology, 2014-12-01) [Artigo]
Soil contamination by lead (Pb) is a problem due to the persistence of this element on soil. High amounts of Pb in soil impair plant establishment, however some plants may increase tolerance to heavy metals when colonized ...

(Brazilian Journal Of Biology, 2014-11-01) [Artigo]
Helminths and pentastomids were examined in exotic Hemidactylus mabouia and native Phyllopezus pollicaris lizards, living synanthropically in an urban area in the municipality of Crato, Ceara state, northeastern Brazil. A ...
Straw decomposition of nitrogen-fertilized grasses intercropped with irrigated maize in an integrated crop-livestock system
(Revista Brasileira de Ciência do Solo, 2011-12-01) [Artigo]
A maior limitação para a sustentabilidade do sistema plantio direto no Cerrado é a pequena deposição e a rápida decomposição da palhada na superfície do solo entre o outono e a primavera, em razão dos déficits hídricos e ...
Relation between ultrasound and carcass measures in buffaloes slaughtered in different stages of feedlot
(Revista Veterinaria, 2010) [Artigo]
The ultrasound is used as a tool to estimate the ribeye area and backfat thickness. The purpose of this work was to evaluate the correlations between the measures obtained by ultrasound and carcass as well as follow the ...
Real-time ultrasound to predict beef carcass retail products of buffaloes
(Revista Veterinaria, 2010) [Artigo]
Twenty eight Mediterranean buffaloes bulls were scanned with real-time ultrasound (RTU), slaughtered, and fabricated into retail cuts to determine the potential for ultrasound measures to predict carcass retail yield. RTU ...
Occurrence of Strongyluris oscari (Nematoda; Heterakidae) in Enyalius bilineatus (Squamata: Leiosaurinae) from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest

Evidence for heterochrony in the cranial evolution of fossil crocodyliforms
(Palaeontology, 2018-07-01) [Artigo]
The southern supercontinent of Gondwana was home to an extraordinary diversity of stem-crocodylians (Crocodyliformes) during the Late Cretaceous. The remarkable morphological disparity of notosuchian crocodyliforms indicates ...
