Silvia Minoia, Angelo Petrozza, Olimpia D'Onofrio, Florence Piron, Giuseppina Mosca, Giovanni Sozio, Francesco Cellini, Abdelhafid Bendahmane, Filomena Carriero
BMC Research Notes , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/1756-0500-3-69
Abstract: To apply TILLING to tomato, a new mutant collection was generated in the genetic background of the processing tomato cultivar Red Setter by treating seeds with two different ethylemethane sulfonate doses (0.7% and 1%). An associated phenotype database, LycoTILL, was developed and a TILLING platform was also established. The interactive and evolving database is available online to the community for phenotypic alteration inquiries. To validate the Red Setter TILLING platform, induced point mutations were searched in 7 tomato genes with the mismatch-specific ENDO1 nuclease. In total 9.5 kb of tomato genome were screened and 66 nucleotide substitutions were identified. The overall mutation density was estimated and it resulted to be 1/322 kb and 1/574 kb for the 1% EMS and 0.7% EMS treatment respectively.The mutation density estimated in our collection and its comparison with other TILLING populations demonstrate that the Red Setter genetic resource is suitable for use in high-throughput mutation discovery. The Red Setter TILLING platform is open to the research community and is publicly available via web for requesting mutation screening services.Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is one of the most important vegetable plants in the world. Its fruits are end products both for the fresh market and food processing industry. Tomato presents a relatively small genome highly syntenic to others economically important Solanaceae species and was selected as a reference species for sequencing a Solanaceae genome. In addition to the availability of a number of genomic resources, including transcriptome [1-3] and metabolome [4], large collections of genetic resources are available to dissect the biochemical and the metabolic pathways in tomato [5]. Large EMS and fast neutron mutant collections, in the background of M82 tomato cultivar, have been generated and more then 3,000 phenotype alterations catalogued [6]. An EMS-induced mutation library of the miniature dwarf tomato cultivar Mi

Abstract: this study describes three collections of texts published in the years following the 1755 earthquake in lisbon. housed at archives and libraries in portugal, the texts represent a variety of literary genres and strategies of argumentation. here they have been analyzed according to pre-established categories. they were written during a time of transition characterized by ideological hesitations and by an eclecticism of conservative bent, a time when the latest experimentalist currents coexisted alongside attempts to reconcile scholastic aristotelianism and experimentalism. the study focuses on a narrower set of texts, of special interest to the history of science; these can be classified into one of two topics: (i) physical explanations for the earth tremors and (ii) hygienist concerns about this type of natural disaster.
A Viola??o da Condi??o em Kadiwéu

Abstract: although kadiwéu presents the same typological facts as the languages analyzed by baker (1995), this work shows that baker's polysynthesis parameter , according to which polysynthetic languages are pronominal argument languages, cannot be applied to this language. this paper offers, then, an alternative analysis to the pronominal argument theory for kadiwéu by arguing that nominal phrases are the verbal arguments in this polysynthetic language, like in any other better known language. on this view, one of the main properties of the polysynthetic languages, the so-called condition c violation (e.g. <>i wants john i to love mary, <> i broke john i's knife), follows from syntactic movement due to the nature of the kadiwéu v-system. that is, this paper questions the existence of a polysynthesis parameter and develops fukui & speas (1996) insight that the syntax of a given language follows from the functional categories present in this language's lexicon.
Psychology Publishing in Portugal: Hardships and Disappointment follows Expectations
Psychology Science Quarterly , 2009,
Abstract: Recently, to publish or to perish has become a motto governing most of researchers work. In Portugal, what makes the whole process so prone to hardships and disappointments is the lack of resources, mainly financial. At least, that’s what most of the interviewees – researchers working mostly at some of the major Portuguese public universities – mentioned. Such a lack of resources is cross-sectional to all aspects under analysis: accessibility, costs, reviewing, time delay, language, impact and reputation. However, some additional specificities must be pointed out, namely those deriving from a lack of organization (e.g., absence of national databases) or from the need to, most of the time, publish in a non-native language due to impact and reputation issues, with all the reviewing and time delay question specifically deriving from it. Finally, participants’ expectation and/or suggestions concerning an Open Access European Psychology Publication Platform will be outlined.
A Viola o da Condi o em Kadiwéu

DELTA: Documenta??o de Estudos em Lingüística Teórica e Aplicada , 2002,
Abstract: Apesar de o kadiwéu apresentar as mesmas características tipológicas das línguas analisadas por Baker (1995), este trabalho mostra que o parametro da polissíntese proposto por Baker, de acordo com o qual as línguas polissintéticas seriam línguas de argumentos pronominais, n o se sustenta para esta língua. Este artigo oferece, ent o, uma análise alternativa à teoria dos argumentos pronominais para o kadiwéu sustentando que sintagmas nominais s o argumentos verbais nesta língua polissintética, como em qualquer outra língua melhor conhecida. Nesta perspectiva, uma das característica principais das línguas polissintéticas, a suposta viola o da Condi o C (e.g. <>i quer que Jo o i ame Maria, <>i quebrou a faca do Jo o i), deriva de movimento sintático decorrente da natureza do sistema-v do kadiwéu. Este texto, assim, questiona a existência de um parametro da polissíntese e desenvolve um insight de Fukui & Speas (1996) que prevê que a sintaxe de uma dada língua decorre das categorias funcionais presentes no léxico desta língua.

The Sustainability of Mediterranean Port Areas: Environmental Management for Local Regeneration in Valencia
Filomena Borriello
Sustainability , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/su5104288
Abstract: Urban renovation projects, which have led to the conversion of port areas through a new vision of waterfronts as elements of the potential development of the urban system in its entirety, have spread since the early 1950s and now some port cities are able to trigger some mechanisms which, even if they are the result of some processes that have been activated for decades and which are still evolving, are able to amplify and to extend over time their generated positive impacts. These impacts also produce a system of relations in the context of the hinterland, attracted also by policies of economic, social, and cultural development. In the case of the city of Valencia, we have seen, in the last 50 years, a progressive spread of the urbanized area to the coasts, simultaneously with a process of renovation of the port area, which has been populated by important architectures, and which has been equipped by efficient infrastructures and subjected to numerous recovery and restoration operations of its historic buildings. However, the environmental conditions near the port area are not well suited to a good quality of life because ports are pollution producers, sites of urban decay, and of social degradation. A good plan can include some instruments to decrease those negative factors, leading to a close merging between the port area and the city hinterland, and generating new economies. The proposal of this research consists in a method of integrating the port planning with an environmental accounting system.

Modern Economy (ME) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/me.2017.84040
Abstract: The article tries to investigate the effects of virtual reality application on customer experience in museum. A case study was applied in order to analyze the research question. The author finds that virtual reality may provide a valuable experience with customers as well as cultural management. Data have been collected only at “Palazzo Ducale” in Venice (Italy), which provide a limited overview of the topic; however a comparative analysis might be applied to evaluate the phenomenon in other Country. Virtual reality is a quite new topic. Only few scholar have been analyzed this phenomenon in relation to museum. The aim of this study is to enrich the current literature review and provide some recommendations to public and private practitioners (professionals), providing a diverse prospective of the virtual reality and also strategical actions to improve customers’ experience.

Abstract: Land-surface models at basin scale usually employ various combinations of land-use and soil class data to parameterize the major hydrologic processes. Even though soil exerts a major influence on hydrologic processes, soil hydraulic behavior is still difficult to quantify at relatively large scales. Recently soil hydraulic parameterization for hydrologic modeling can be conveniently carried out using pedotransfer rules, which are based on the knowledge of basic soil physical and chemical variables, such as bulk density, textural composition, and organic matter content. However, the availability of this basic information can be rather limited over large land areas. Therefore, in this work we explore the feasibility of employing morphological features to retrieve basic soil data being then used in pedotransfer functions (PTFs), as well as soil depth being viewed here as an indicator of the lower boundary condition. The proposed approach is applied in the Agri River basin (approximately 1770 km2), in Southern Italy (Basilicata Region), where we assessed relationships among soil depth and texture with morphological attributes, such as elevation, slope gradient, slope orientation (aspect), and surface curvature. Climatic conditions were defined using mean annual rainfall and climatic indices. The results show an enhanced correlation between soil depth and slope when accounting for the local vegetation types. As expected, texture can be conveniently linked to parent material obtained from lithology. We show an application of the method to derive soil parameters from morphological and vegetation coverage data (DEM, Corine Land Cover, etc.), which are actually available for almost all national basins.
