Edaphic fauna affects soybean productivity under no-till system

, Luís Carlos Iuñes De Oliveira Filho, , , Carolina Riviera Duarte Maluche Baretta &
ABSTRACT: This study aimed to evaluate the relationship of edaphic fauna under a no-tillage system with different levels of soybean productivity [High (NTH), Medium (NTM) and Low (NTL)] in the west of Santa Catarina (Brazil), identifying which chemical and physical variables most affect them, and the best indicators that can be used. Native forest (NF) areas were used as a reference. A total of 207 samples of soil fauna were collected by soil monolith and...

Development of marker genes for jasmonic acid signaling in shoots and roots of wheat

, Lilia Costa Carvalhais, Kemal Kazan & Peer M. Schenk
The jasmonic acid (JA) signaling pathway plays key roles in a diverse array of plant development, reproduction, and responses to biotic and abiotic stresses. Most of our understanding of the JA signaling pathway derives from the dicot model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, while corresponding knowledge in wheat is somewhat limited. In this study, the expression of 41 genes implicated in the JA signaling pathway has been assessed on 10 day-old bread wheat seedlings, 24 h, 48...

Combination of membrane processes for desulfation of seawater used for injection in oilfields

Amanda Loreti Hupsel, Cristiano Piacsek Borges, &
ABSTRACT Seawater is commonly used in offshore platforms as an injection fluid in secondary oil recovery. However, the sulfate found in seawater has been the cause of many inconveniences, such as the formation of precipitates, which can settle in various parts of the production platform. Nowadays, nanofiltration (NF) is used in sulfate removal units for seawater desulfation, where cartridge filters are commonly used for seawater pretreatment. Suspended solids and microorganisms that have not been retained...

A redescription of deep-channel ghost knifefish, Sternarchogiton preto (Gymnotiformes: Apteronotidae), with assignment to a new genus

Maxwell J. Bernt, Aaron H. Fronk, Kory M. Evans & James S. Albert
ABSTRACT From a study of morphological and molecular datasets we determine that a species originally described as Sternarchogiton preto does not form a monophyletic group with the other valid species of Sternarchogiton including the type species, S. nattereri. Previously-published phylogenetic analyses indicate that this species is sister to a diverse clade comprised of six described apteronotid genera. We therefore place it into a new genus diagnosed by the presence of three cranial fontanels, first and...

Main Hypermarket Meat Purchasing Drivers

, & Eduardo Monteiro De Castro Gomes
ABSTRACT Objective: urbanization and migration to large centers has caused changes in the behavior of meat consumers, not only with regards to product choice based on product quality and safety, but also the purchasing process. In this sense, factors such as proximity, product availability, and price are also factors affecting the purchase choices. This work aims to analyze the main factors associated with the consumption of these meats in the Federal District, Brazil, in an...

Perspectives of Mathematics Teachers about Humour and its Educational Value

Luís Menezes, José António Fernandes, Floriano Viseu, António Ribeiro & Pablo Flores
Abstract At present, humour has an increasing acceptance and appreciation, because we recognize the positive contributions to the well-being of people in contexts as diverse as health, business, and entertainment. What happens in Education and, in particular, in Mathematics teaching? To answer this question, we designed this quantitative study with a sample of 1088 Iberian mathematics teachers (Portuguese and Spanish), that teach from the early years through to higher education. Through the use of a...

Membrane bioreactor for mall wastewater treatment

, Gabriel Capellari Santos, &
Abstract Malls concentrate a large number of people in a relatively small area, and thus generate concentrated urban wastewater. This study evaluated the performance of a membrane bioreactor (MBR) as an alternative for the treatment of mall wastewater. Wastewater samples without any previous treatment were collected from a medium-size mall and showed a high chemical oxygen demand (COD) near 2,000 mg L-1. The MBR operated with a constant pressure of 40 kPa during 60 days...

Plant, space and time - linked together in an integrative and scalable data management system for phenomic approaches in agronomic field trials

Andreas Honecker, Henrik Schumann, Diana Becirevic, Lasse Klingbeil, Kai Volland, Steffi Forberig, Marc Jansen, Hinrich Paulsen, Heiner Kuhlmann & Jens Léon
Abstract Background To ensure further genetic gain, genomic approaches in plant breeding rely on precise phenotypic data, describing plant structure, function and performance. A more precise characterization of the environment will allow a better dealing with genotype-by-environment-by-management interactions. Therefore, space and time dependencies of the crop production processes have to be considered. The use of novel sensor technologies has drastically increased the amount and diversity of phenotypic data from agronomic field trials. Existing data management...

Effectiveness of protected areas for the conservation of aquatic invertebrates: a study-case in southern Brazil

, , Jesse Renan Sobczak, Alice Teresa Valduga, , Elisabete Maria Zanin, &
Abstract: Aim This work aimed to analyze the effectiveness of protected areas (PA) as maintainers of the fauna of benthic macroinvertebrates and the use of these in the water management of these areas. We tested the hypothesis that in streams located within the PA there will be greater abundance and diversity of organisms. Methods We collected macroinvertebrates in streams located inside and outside two PA in Southern Brazil: (Fritz Plaumann State Park, Santa Catarina, Teixeira...

Cities and climate change: challenges to Brazilian municipal Master Plans

Isabela Battistello Espíndola & Wagner Costa Ribeiro
Abstract Considering that cities have their political relevance recognized in current global agreements, this article questions whether the master plans of Brazilian capitals contribute not only to promote urban development and planning, but also to overcome challenges related to climate change. We analyzed qualitatively the plans instituted after 2015 and checked if the legislation addresses climate change, containing, for example, references to mitigation and adaptation plans. Data from the Basic Municipal Information Survey were used,...

Synthesis and characterization of some new 1,2,3-thiadiazole and 1,2,3-selenadiazole triterpene derivatives from allobetulone and 2-oxoallobetulin

Thuc Dinh Ngoc
The synthesis of new 1,2,3-thiadiazole and 1,2,3-selenadiazole derivatives from triterpenoid ketones has been investigated via the corresponding semicarbazones. The intermediates 5, 8 have also been isolated, separated and their structures identified. The Hurd–Mori reaction and Lalezari method have been applied to synthesize a series of new substances 6 and 7. The regioselectivity of the functionalization mostly was centered at the C-3 position for the products 9 and 10. The structures of these compounds were confirmed...

Network Pharmacology Approach to Uncover the Mechanism Governing the Effect of Radix Achyranthis Bidentatae on Osteoarthritis

, , , Jun Mao, Wei Mei, Liang Ding, Li Zhang, &
Abstract Background This study used a network pharmacology approach to elucidate the molecular mechanism governing the effect of Radix Achyranthis Bidentatae (RAB) on osteoarthritis (OA). Methods Based on oral bioavailability and drug-likeness, the main active components of RAB were screened via the Traditional Chinese Medicine Systems Pharmacology platform. The GeneCard, OMIM, PharmGkb, Therapeutic Targets database, and DrugBank database were used to establish a database of osteoarthritis targets. The interactive active network map of “ingredient-target” was...
