Something is not quite right: effects of two land uses on anuran diversity in subtropical grasslands

Leonardo Felipe Bairos Moreira, Henrique Zanette De Castilhos & Santiago Castroviejo-Fisher
Although habitat modification is considered one of the main causes of biodiversity loss, the relative contribution of different rural land uses to biodiversity conservation are far less known. Additionally, the realization of the multidimensionality of biodiversity demands studies integrating variation of functional traits and phylogenetic information as complements to address the effects of land use on the structure of animal communities. Herein, we investigated the effects of land use (i.e., intensive agricultural and extensive livestock...

Compreensão de narrativas em leitores típicos e em leitores com desenvolvimento linguístico atípico pós AVC

Sabrine Townsend, Rosângela Gabriel & Lilian Hübner
A experiência humana é influenciada pelo ato de compreender e criar narrativas. Podemos considerar as narrativas dos outros fascinantes e nos engajamos em atividades e programações culturais que envolvem a sua produção, tais como livros, peças de teatro e filmes. Nossa afinidade com a leitura surge ainda na infância, quando entramos em contato com os livros de história e filmes infantis. Compreendemos e criamos narrativas para formar nossas biografias individuais, selecionar e organizar memórias, o...

Data from: Unraveling B-lymphocytes in CNS inflammatory diseases: Distinct mechanisms and treatment targets

Bruna Klein Da Costa, Renata Brant De Souza Melo, Giordani Rodrigues Dos Passos, Douglas Gomes Meneses Sevilha Castro, Jefferson Becker, Amit Bar-Or & Douglas Kazutoshi Sato
Specific therapies targeting B lymphocytes in multiple sclerosis (MS) have demonstrated reductions in disease activity and disability progression. Several observational studies have also shown the effects of targeting B lymphocytes in other rare CNS inflammatory diseases, such as neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) and autoimmune encephalitis (AE). However, some drugs targeting cytokine receptors involved in B-lymphocyte maturation and proliferation resulted in negative outcomes in MS. These apparently conflicting findings have stimulated research on the pathophysiologic...

Vastly underestimated radiation of Amazonian salamanders (Plethodontidae: Bolitoglossa) and implications about plethodontid diversification

Andres Felipe Jaramillo, Ignacio De La Riva, Juan M. Guayasamin, Juan C. Chaparro, Giussepe Gagliardi-Urrutia, Roberto Gutierrez, Isabela Brcko, Carles Vila & Santiago Castroviejo-Fisher
We present data showing that the number of salamander species in Amazonia is vastly underestimated. We used DNA sequences of up to five genes (3 mitochondrial and 2 nuclear) of 366 specimens, 189 corresponding to 89 non-Amazonian nominal species and 177 Amazonian specimens, including types or topotypes, of eight of the nine recognized species in the region. By including representatives of all known species of Amazonian Bolitoglossa, except for one, and 73 % of the...
