(Herpetology Notes, 2014) [Artigo]
Chironomus sancticaroli (Diptera, Chironomidae) as a Sensitive Tropical Test Species in Laboratory Bioassays Evaluating Metals (Copper and Cadmium) and Field Testing
(Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, 2019-01-15) [Artigo]
Despite that chironomids are the most widely used benthic insect test species worldwide, little research has been conducted so far with tropical chironomid representatives. This study was designed to evaluate the indigenous ...
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 ...
