Abstract: populations of synchaeta jollyae (shiel & koste, 1993) (rotifera), a species recently recorded for the first time in brazil and south america, were analyzed in reservoirs in southeast brazil. sampling was carried out monthly from august 2006 to july 2007 at furnas reservoir in the rio grande basin, state of minas gerais, and in four cascade reservoirs in the tietê river basin (barra bonita, bariri, ibitinga and nova avanhandava) state of s?o paulo, in june and september 2008 and in january and may 2009. synchaeta jollyae occurred in most samples and periods. from the results obtained it is evident that s. jollyae occurs in water bodies of varied trophic status but reaches larger populations in eutrophic water bodies and during lower temperature periods. the greatest densities of s. jollyae were found in the eutrophic bariri reservoir, on the tietê river, during the winter. mann-whitney test confirmed the significant difference between the population densities in periods of high and low temperatures, with populations reaching higher densities at lower temperatures. it is not yet possible to tell whether s. jollyae is a widely distributed species that has been overlooked in previous plankton studies in south america. wherever these populations of s. jollyae might have originated, it appears to be a species well established and adapted to a wide range of conditions in the neotropics.

Abstract: background: barrett's esophagus is a condition in which the normal stratified squamous epithelium of the esophagus is replaced by specialized intestinal metaplasia, that carries an increased risk for the development of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus. dysplasia and initial stage carcinoma generally precede this neoplasm; the increased risk has led to attempts at early detection of these lesions through periodic upper endoscopy and biopsies. the continued rise in the incidence of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus has fueled resurgent interest in the use of a variety of endoscopic techniques, like methylene blue chromoendoscopy, to improve the diagnosis of barrett's esophagus and associated complications. aim: to determine if methylene blue chromoendoscopy directed biopsies offer advantage over the conventional technique in the detection of barrett's esophagus. material and method: forty-five patients with previous diagnosis of barrett's esophagus were enrolled in this study; all of them underwent upper endoscopy with random biopsies and upper endoscopy with methylene-blue directed biopsies within 4 weeks, in the period between april and october, 2002. results: results of histologic examination of random biopsies and those of methylene blue directed biopsies were compared. sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values were 62,5%, 15,4%, 57,7% and 18,2%, respectively. no significant differences were found in the total number of biopsy specimens. differences were found in the total amount of time spent during each procedure (chromoendoscopy x conventional technique), with chromoendoscopy being significantly longer. conclusion: we concluded that methylene blue chromoendoscopy offered no advantage over the conventional method in the diagnosis of barrett's esophagus.

Abstract: despite concerns with expected production, the phosphate fertilizer recommendations for pernambuco do not take into account influence of the buffer capacity of soil on p availability. therefore, this work had as objective to evaluate extraction methods to estimate p availability considering content and quality of clay fraction as well mineralogical, chemical and physical soil characteristics. the experiments were carried under field conditions at 'zona da mata' of sugarcane cropping area of the state. five soils were used: argisol yellow distrocoeso (padx); latosol yellow distrophic (lad); argisol yellow distrofic (pad); gleisol haplic eutrophic (gxve); and espodosol carbic duric (esko). the treatments consisted of seven doses of p, determined in function of the p maximum capacity of adsorption (pmca). the experimental design was a completely randomized treatment block, with four replications. in soil samples collected after treatment application, p was determined by mehlich-1, mehlich-3, bray-1 and ion-exchange resin extractors. ion-exchange resin did not present correlation with any physical or chemical characteristics of the soils, having extracted p indistinctly, and independent of the soil. however, mehlich-1 was highly sensible to buffer capacity of p in soil.

Abstract: RACIONAL: O es fago de Barrett é uma condi o na qual a mucosa escamosa esofágica é substituída por metaplasia intestinal especializada, que predisp e o paciente ao desenvolvimento de adenocarcinoma esofágico. Este é precedido por displasia e carcinoma precoce; o rastreamento dessas les es faz-se através de endoscopias digestivas periódicas com biopsias randomizadas. A incidência aumentada desse, tem despertado interesse no desenvolvimento de novas técnicas endoscópicas, como a cromoendoscopia com azul de metileno, para melhorar a identifica o do es fago de Barrett e suas complica es. OBJETIVO: Determinar se as biopsias dirigidas pela cromoendoscopia com azul de metileno oferecem vantagem em rela o ao método convencional na detec o do es fago de Barrett. MATERIAL E MéTODO: Estudaram-se 45 pacientes com diagnóstico prévio de es fago de Barrett, todos submetidos a dois exames de endoscopia digestiva alta com biopsias, em intervalo de 4 semanas, um convencional e outro com aplica o do corante, no período entre abril e outubro de 2002. RESULTADOS: Os resultados histológicos das biopsias de todos os exames foram comparados. Observou-se sensibilidade de 62,5%, especificidade de 15,4%, valor preditivo positivo de 57,7% e valor preditivo negativo de 18,2%. N o houve diferen a significativa quanto ao número de biopsias. O tempo de dura o da técnica de cromoendoscopia foi significativamente maior quando comparado ao da técnica convencional. CONCLUS O: N o se observou vantagem na utiliza o da cromoendoscopia em rela o à técnica randomizada no diagnóstico do es fago de Barrett.

Abstract: The urbanization of a campus landscape has required much space for this expansion, reinforcing the status of geographical space as a limited resource. We analyzed the effects of land cover change assessed over temporal dataset on composition and configuration dynamics of UFSCar (Federal University of São Carlos) campus landscape, based on a descriptive view of the hemeroby levels, over a 54-year period (1962-2016), in order to understand the impacts of past anthropogenic induced landscape change and inform decision making with regard to biodiversity management. The classification of land use/cover dynamics, over time, was obtained based on screen digitizing of aerial photos and LandSat imagery. An ordinal scale ranging from ahemerob to metahemerob was applied to assess the hemerobiotic state of each land use type. Currently, The UFSCar landscape campus configures a biocultural mosaic in different stages of hemeroby. Thus a campus landscape dynamics model, which can be denoted as “forestry-conservation-urban model”, anthropogenic landscape is replaced by natural one, later by land cover reflecting the spatial anthropization process. Through time, two hemerobiotic trajectories were identified, in which 1) an euhemerob landscape matrix is substituted by an ahemerob one, resulting in increased naturalness of the campus landscape, and then 2) metahemerob patch types will later on increasing as a consequence of ongoing urbanization. Expressive amount of ahemerob patches in campus landscape fulfills one of the conditions for maintenance of the capacity for self-regulation and sustainability of a biocultural landscape. This framework provides an essential tool supporting with essential information about current and historical landscape sustainability for campus landscape management and support decision making process. The main institutional challenge for campus landscape sustainable management lies in the balance between the competitors of the campus landscape matrix: conservation x urbanization.

Abstract: background: the assessment of left ventricular function may be impaired by the abnormal interventricular septal motion frequently found after coronary artery bypass grafting (cabg). studies on the validation of gated spect as a tool for the assessment of left ventricular function in this patient group are scarce. objective: we investigated the agreement and correlation between left ventricular ejection fraction (lvef), end-diastolic volume (edv), and end-systolic volume (esv) as obtained using electrocardiogram-gated myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (gated spect) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in 20 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. methods: correlation was measured using spearman's correlation coefficient (ρ). agreement was assessed using bland-altman analysis. results: a good correlation was found between gated spect and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in patients after cabg with regard to left ventricular ejection fraction (ρ = 0.85; p =0.0001), moderate correlation for end-diastolic volume (ρ = 0.51; p = 0.02), and non-significant correlation for end-diastolic volume (ρ = 0.13; p = 0.5). agreement ranges for lvef, esv and edv were: -20% to 12%; -38 to 54 ml and; -96 to 100 ml, respectively. conclusion: a reliable correlation was found for left ventricular ejection fraction as obtained by gated spect and magnetic resonance imaging in patients undergoing cabg. for ventricular volumes, however, the correlation is not adequate.
