Health-Related Quality of Life Reported by Patients With Chagas Disease: A Systematic Review of Qualitative Evidence With GRADE Recommendations

Whesley Tanor Silva, Lucas Frois Fernandes Oliveira, Diego Mendes Xavier, Pedro Henrique Scheidt Figueiredo, Ana Cristina Rodrigues Lacerda, Vanessa Amaral Mendonça, Matheus Ribeiro Ávila, Cláudio Luiz Ferreira Júnior, Márcia Maria Oliveira Lima, Mauro Felippe Felix Mediano, Manoel Otávio da Costa Rocha & Henrique Silveira Costa
ABSTRACT Patients with Chagas disease have reduced health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Hence, we aimed to identify the factors that mostly affected their HRQoL. This was a systematic review of qualitative studies. The Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences Literature, Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online, Excerpta Medica Database, Web of Science, and SciVerse Scopus databases were searched for relevant studies without language or date restrictions. The search and data analysis were performed by...

Martín González
Functional traits can determine pairwise species interactions, such as those between plants and pollinators. However, the effects of biogeography and evolutionary history on trait-matching and trait-mediated resource specialization remain poorly understood. We compiled a database of 93 mutualistic hummingbird-plant networks (including 181 hummingbird and 1,256 plant species), complemented by morphological measures of hummingbird bill and floral corolla length. We divided the hummingbirds into their principal clades and used knowledge on hummingbird biogeography to divide the...

Data from: Population-level plant pollination mode is influenced by Quaternary climate and pollinators

André Rech
Patterns in ecology are the products of current factors interacting with history. Nevertheless, few studies have attempted to disentangle the contribution of historical and current factors, such as climate change and pollinator identity and behaviour, on plant reproduction. Here, we attempted to separate the relative importance of current and historical processes on geographical patterns of the mating system of the tree species Curatella americana (Dilleniaceae). Specifically, we asked: 1) How do Quaternary and current climate...

Heterospecific pollen deposition is positively associated with reproductive success in a diverse hummingbird-pollinated plant community

Sabrina Lopes, Steffani Najara, Jeff Ollerton, Thiago Santos, Andre Rech & Pedro Bergamo
Heterospecific pollen deposition (HPD) is ubiquitous across plant communities, especially for generalized species which use a diversity of pollinators, and may have negative effects on plant reproduction. However, it is unclear whether temporal changes in the co-flowering community result in changes in HPD patterns. Moreover, community-level studies are required to understand which factors influence HPD and how the reproduction of different species is affected. We investigated the temporal variation of HPD, its relationship with level...
