Abstract: this paper aimed to study the effect of diurnal and seasonal variation of the environmental factors on the sap flow density (sfd) and leaf water potential (ψl) in the east and west side of the canopy of 'valencia' sweet orange trees under field conditions, with no irrigation system. were evaluated three plants, whose planting rows were north-south oriented. the evaluations were performed during one day in each season of the year: summer, autumn, winter and spring. the values of water potential measured at predawn ranged from -0,31 mpa, in the day 12/10/05, to -1,1 mpa, in the day 08/30/05, however there was no significant difference between the east and west sides of the canopy. at the afternoon, leaves at the west side showed smaller (p<0,05) water potential than the ones at east position, with values varying between -0,95 (12/10/05) and -1,89 mpa (08/30/05). the largest air evaporative demand that is verified at afternoon induces to a larger water deficit in the west side of the canopy independent of the time of the year and, in consequence, larger sfd in well-watered plants under conditions of days completely sunny. under water deficit conditions (low values of ψl), the west side of the plants is more sensible to that condition, showing reduction of sfd.

Abstract: collection data of euglossinae males from parque estadual do rio doce (perd) and vi?osa, both areas with remnants of atlantic rain forest (mata atlantica) in minas gerais state, brazil are presented. comparisons made among three fragments with different sizes and states of disturbance from vi?osa showed differences in abundance of most common species and apparently, eulaema nigrita lepeletir, 1841 can be an useful indicator of disturbed sites. some populations of euglossine bees seems to be restrict to a forest fragment, there being few or no flow of individuals or species of one fragment to another, even when they are only 1 km apart. 15 species of euglossines were sampled in perd, and the most abundant was eulaema cingulata (fabricius, 1804). at vi?osa, 10 species were sampled, e. nigrita was the predominant one. methyl salicylate attracted no males at both sites, in spite of large numbers of species and individuals sampled using this bait in other regions. the majority of species and individuals were collected in the rainy season. only 0,58% of sampled males carried orchid pollinia (catasetum richard, cycnoches lindley and coryanthes hook) on their bodies. emergence data of four species of euglossa latreille, 1802 reared from trap nests suggest that sex ratio in euglossini is not a constant within the tribe. a list of 57 euglossine species now known to occur in mata atlantica are offered.

Abstract: background: studies have been carried out to identify the best anthropometric predictor of chronic diseases in different populations. objective: to verify the relation between anthropometric measures and risk factors (lipid profile and blood pressure) for cardiovascular diseases. methods: transversal study carried out with 180 males and 120 females, with mean age 39.6±10.6 years old. body mass index (bmi), waist circumference (wc), body fat percentage (%bf), waist-to-hip ratio (whr), lipid profile, glycemia and blood pressure were the variables assessed. results: bmi, wc and whr were higher among males, and %bf were higher among females (p<0.001). the proportion of altered cases of whr and %bf in relation to ldl-cholesterol and total cholesterol (tc) was higher among males. the individuals considered normal for wc presented alteration in the values of ldl-c, tc and hdl-cholesterol. there was a correlation between bmi and wc (males: r=0.97 and females: r=0.95; p<0.001). among males, the best correlation (p<0.001) was presented between wc and whr (r=0.82) and among females, %bf and wc (r=0.80). triglycerides (tg) presented correlation to whr (males: r=0.992; females r=0.95; p<0.001), and to wc (males: r=0.82; females r=0.79; p<0.001). in the multiple analysis (prevalence ratio - pr, confidence interval - ci), the bmi were associated with total cholesterol (pr=1.9; 95%ci 1.01-3.69; p=0.051) among males and slightly associated with tg/hdl-cholesterol (pr= 1.8; ic95% 1.01-3.45; p=0.062) among females. conclusion: bmi and whr were the anthropometric indicators with strongest relation to lipid profile in both sex groups. this data support the hypothesis that bmi and whr may be considered as risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

Abstract: The aim of this pilot study was to analyze the effect of a strength training program on indicators of trait and state anxiety in patients with ischemic stroke. The subjects were divided into two groups: experimental group (EG) consisting of 11 subjects aged years and a control group (CG) with 13 subjects aged years. EG underwent 12 weeks of strength training, with a frequency of three times a week. For data collection, a State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) was used. Significant differences were found between pre- and posttest in EG for trait anxiety ( pretest posttest) and state anxiety ( pretest posttest) with no differences in CG for trait anxiety ( pretest posttest) and state anxiety ( pretest posttest). In the evaluation between the groups, significant differences were found for all indicators of trait anxiety ( EG; CG) and state anxiety ( EG; CG). This pilot study indicates that strength training may provide an improvement in trait and state anxiety more than one year after stroke. 1. Introduction Stroke is linked to cognitive dysfunction and functional impairment, leading to mobility difficulty and interference in social matters that can contribute to depression [1]. Thus, depression and anxiety should be adequately treated to improve functional aspects of life [2]. Anxiety and depression tend to result in decreased adherence to treatment, consequently resulting in reductions in social interactions and motivation. These changes affect overall health [3]. Physical exercises, including strength training, have been used primarily as a form of rehabilitation and may be used for patients who have been affected by stroke. The application of these exercises is a factor which leads to improvements in activities of daily living, posture, and pain reduction [4–6]. Similarly, strength training has been used as a means of improving cardiopulmonary function in the elderly population, where the occurrence of a stroke is more common [7]. Strength training has currently been listed as a means of promoting improvements in functionality [8–10] and quality of life [11] of individuals who suffered a stroke, especially one of ischemic origin. However, there are few studies evaluating the effects of physical activities, especially those of strength training, in people with sequelae caused by stroke, and their influence on psychosocial aspects. Thus, our aim in this study was to assess the influence of strength training on indicators of trait and state anxiety in people with sequelae of ischemic stroke (IS). 2. Methods 2.1.

Abstract: leishmaniasis is a zoonotic disease that affects 12 million people worldwide. several mammalian species can serve as a reservoir for this disease. dogs are the main reservoir for visceral leishmaniasis in urban areas, which has become a serious public health concern in brazil. the aim of this study was to evaluate the presence of leishmania spp. in captive wild animals from ilha solteira, s?o paulo, brazil. blood and various tissues samples were collected from animals of five different species: speothos venaticus, chrysocyon brachyurus, cerdocyon thous, pseudalopex vetulus, and procyon cancrivorus. antibodies against leishmania spp. were detected in three wild canids by indirect fluorescent antibody test (ifat) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa). pcr analyses of blood and bone marrow from all animals were negative, but leishmania dna was found in the tissues and skin of seropositive animals. positive pcr samples were also positive for leishmania donovani complex. analysis of sequenced pcr products showed similarities with different regions of leishmania (leishmania) infantum and leishmania (leishmania) chagasi kinetoplastids. measures to control visceral leishmaniasis in wild animals kept in brazilian zoos should be established, as no disease control programs are currently available.
