Pinheiro, Zuleika Bezerra;Rodrigues, Kelly;Pessoa-Wanderley, Carlos Ronald;Araújo, Rinaldo dos Santos;Marinho, Glória;
Engenharia Sanitaria e Ambiental , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-41522010000100006
Abstract: in this work, an aqueous mean containing 250 mg/l of phenol and macro and micro nutrients was submitted to treatment in a continuous fixed bed reactor inoculated with the aspergillus niger. the reactor was operated under eight hours of hydraulic detention, divided into two feeding phases in the presence (phase i) and absence (phase ii) of 0.5 g/l of glucose in the mean. the organic matter removal, measured in chemical demand of oxygen and phenol were of 92% and 99% in phase i, and 77% of organic matter and phenol in phase ii. the loss of the efficiency observed in the phase ii was attributed to extreme production of biomass and mucilage inside the reactor and for the reduction of the enzymatic activity of the involved microorganisms in the process.

Abstract: a batch reactor with air and immobilized biomass of aspergillus niger an400 was operated during 10 cycles of 7 days to remove benzene (200 mg.l-1), toluene (200 mg.l-1), and xylene (50 mg.l-1) - btx - and nutrients from basal medium. the reactor was weekly fed with 4 l of the medium and glucose - 1 g.l-1 (phase i) and 0.5 g.l-1 (phase ii). the btx had been detected until the fourth day of operation in all cycles. the best efficiencies of removal had been in phase i: 75% of soluble organic matter, 80% of orthophosphate and 77% of ammonia. the reactor can be a viable alternative for the contaminated water treatment with btx. however it has the necessity to study behavior of the reactor during longer period of operation and with shorter reaction cycles, as well as the identification of the produced metabolites.
Spatial and temporal distribution of the gastropod Heleobia australis in an eutrophic estuarine system suggests a metapopulation dynamics  [PDF]
Carlos Alejandro Echeverría, Raquel A. F. Neves, Leandro A. Pessoa, Paulo C. Paiva
Natural Science (NS) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2010.28108
Abstract: Hydrobiidae is one of the most diverse taxa among limnic and estuarine mollusks. Patterns of spatial and seasonal distribution of Heleobia australis were studied in ten stations over two years, in the urban eutrophic bay of Guanabara, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Spatial dispersal strategies in adults of this species, analyzed in the laboratory, revealed three patterns: 1) mobility on soft sediments; 2) mobility on hard substrata; and 3) the ability to lift from the bottom to the surface, to again sink down. This facilitate species movement from one location to another by surface currents or attached to floating debris. Thus, individuals are able to escape from an impacted area and further re-colonize other patches after recovering from local impacts. The hypothesis of metapopulation dynamics (source– sink) was analyzed. Two stations with high and constant numbers of individuals were grouped and tested as possible ‘sources’. The number of specimens in the remaining stations was highly variable, even with the complete disappearance and posterior highly dense re-occurrence of the mollusk, whereby these were tested as possible ‘sinks’. Results derived from nested ANOVA supported the hypothesis of metapopulation dynamics in the case of H. australis adults, ex-pressed through opportunistic-species domi- nation of a highly impacted estuarine system, such as Guanabara Bay.

Abstract: Em texto anterior argumentou-se contra os excessos do cientismo com que, na linha de Sokal e Bricmont, António Manuel Baptista ataca as análises sociológicas dos processos e produtos da ciência, nomeadamente as posi es de Boaventura de Sousa Santos. Neste outro texto, pretende-se contestar AMB e os sokalistas no seu próprio campo, o da ciência pura e dura, mostrando que eles próprios n o compreendem o estatuto das suas ciências, e tentando ponderar afirma es menos precisas, frequentes na análise da sociogénese da ciência. Trazendo a discuss o para o nosso tempo, abordaremos também uma problemática n o tratada no texto anterior, a do estatuto dos cientistas e tecnólogos enquanto peritos nas instancias de decis o. Por último, tratará de analisar-se como as controvérsias entre peritos, hoje t o frequentes, s o vividas no seio da comunidade científica e qual a evolu o que geram na própria prática pericial. In a previous text, the authors argued against the excessive scientism with which António Manuel Baptista, following Sokal and Bricmont, attacks the sociological analyses of scientific processes and products, especially the positions of Boaventura de Sousa Santos. The aim of the present text is to contest AMB and Sokalists in their own field, that of pure and hard science, showing how they themselves do not understand the status of their sciences, and seeking to reflect on less precise assertions, which often occur in the analysis of the sociogenesis of science. Bringing the discussion into our own time-period, they also address the question of the status of scientists and technologists as experts in decision-making bodies. Finally, they discuss how controversies among experts, increasingly frequent, are experienced within the scientific community, and the developments they generate in expert practice itself.

Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the contamination of lettuces (Lactuca saliva) with parasites of Public Health peculiar interest sold in Lages, Santa Catarina. Materials and Methods: A nonprobabilitic intentional sampling method was used, in which eight supermarkets and two public markets were selected according to their scope of activity and sales volume for the town. The 122 samples obtained from eight supermarkets and from two open-air markets were analyzed by the techniques of spontaneous sedimentation (Lutz), centrifugation and fluctuation in zinc sulphate (Faust), centrifugation and fluctuation in sucrose solution (Sheather) and modified Ziehl Neelsen coloration. Results: The total parasitism rate was 88.5% (108/122), 77% (94/122) in the supermarkets samples and 11.5% (14/122) in the open-air markets samples. The Lutz technique has detected 46.7% (57/122) infected lettuces; Sheather and Faust technique identified 31.1% (38/122) and 10.6% (13/122) of lettuces infected with eggs and/or oocysts of parasites, respectively. The Eimeria, Giardia e Entamoeba were the most prevalent genders. Conclusions: The analyzed samples presented low hygienic standards, showing that more intense sanitary inspection is needed during all stages of vegetable productive process.

The regime of disturbance with natural or anthropogenic origin can lead to the destabilization or even to a mass mortality of benthic communities. Due to the heterogeneity of the disturbance there is a formation of patches in different stages of ecological succession. The aim of this study is to follow and describe the resilience in artificial disturbed sediment in a polluted bay in Rio de Janeiro. The sediment was collected, sterilized and placed inside corers (10 cmdiameter ×15 cmheight) in the same place where it was collected. We allocated the samples in two structures, the difference between them was that one was placed closed to the bottom and the other was placed50 cmheight. We found 2352 organisms distributed in 14 taxons. The class Polychaeta and the order Amphipoda showed the highest density in all the survey and treatments. We identified the factors influencing the scenarium: different mechanisms of dispersal, the position of the structures and life history of each group. Disturbance can be the main cause of the patch’s diversity found in estuaries and coastal areas. Because of this, monitoring of selected areas becomes an important tool to understand the regime of disturbance as a key factor structuring benthic communities in soft sediment, also suggesting a metapopulation dynamics.
