Climate change and mountain Grouse: recent evidences from alpine habitats
Brugnoli A
Forest@ , 2013, DOI: 10.3832/efor0938-010
Abstract: Current climate change, referring as well to the observed rain and temperature patterns as to the increased frequency and intensity of extreme weather conditions, has a deep influence on biotic communities and, in particular, on mountain Grouse. These species show great adaptation to coldness, are highly sedentary and have quite “strict” ecological requirements, when it deals with habitat selection. Moreover, their alpine ranges are dangerously marginal to the main distribution areas, which increases the risk of dramatic changes in occurrence, demography and ecology. However, not all the species will predictably be exposed in the same way to the menace of climate change over the next 50-100 years. This article gives a brief review of the main data acquired in the alpine environment in this matter. It also underlines the utmost need to proceed with research and monitoring activities, in order to effectively adapt and manage conservation strategies on mid-long terms.
Recapture of lynx individual B132 in the Trentino province, Italy
Brugnoli A
Forest@ , 2010, DOI: 10.3832/efor0635-007
Abstract: In February 2010, B132 - a male lynx born in 2006 in north-eastern Switzerland - was recaptured in a box trap set above Molveno Lake, in Brenta Massif eastern slopes, and fit with a new GPS/GSM radiocollar by staff members of the Forest and Wildlife Service of the Autonomous Province of Trento. His 2008 dispersal into the Adamello-Brenta Natural Park area in the Trentino province was the furthest one ever documented outside of Scandinavia for a Eurasian lynx. The complete recovery of the lynx in the entire Alpine arc, after 40 years since the first reintroduction, will be a long-term task, and documentation of B132’s dispersal and spatial behaviour is of crucial interest in this respect.
Planning habitat improvement for Black Grouse in Valsugana, Trentino, Italy
Brugnoli A,Gianesini M
Forest@ , 2007,
Abstract: This technical note describes the conceiving and planning phase, the licence and EU funding procedure and the first results of a demanding habitat improvement program for Black Grouse (Tetrao tetrix), carried out in the territories of ‘Telve - Telve di sopra - Carzano’ hunting communal Reserve, in eastern Trentino. Through the years 2006-2007, activities will affect a surface of about 25.5 ha of underutilized pastures, by now invaded by shrubs and arboreal species regeneration, for a total amount of 64.250 €, whose funding will be provided thanks to the 2000-2006 Rural Development Plan by the Autonomous Province of Trento. Plan’s 9.2.3 c) provision sets in fact “activities aimed at preserving and enhancing biodiversity of an area, including what wildlife regards...” within investments eligible for public contribution. Central Valsugana Forest Association - constituted in 2005 by Telve, Carzano and Telve di sopra and other villages - thus submitted the adherence application to the Plan for the year 2005, giving a program of the investments relevant to the 9.2.3 c) provision, for a total amount of 93.300 €. Seven are the Reserve’s areas object of the established habitat improvement activities, which have already been carried out in 3 of these in the period July, 31st - October 30th 2006. Activities involved shrub mulching in shrub invaded areas: these were performed with an excavator Euromach 6500 equipped with a Seppi M. BMS-L head - and a rotor with swinging hammer - on its dipper arm. In the end, perspectives consistent with coordinating actions of habitat improvement activities and test of their actual effectiveness are described. Without doubt, in the last years the specific Rural Development Plan’s 9.2.3 c) provision has made it possible - also in other situations of the Provincial territory - to realize important habitat improvement activities devoted particularly to wildlife.
A new book on Swiss guidelines to properly manage forest-ungulates interaction
Brugnoli A,Paci M
Forest@ , 2010, DOI: 10.3832/efor0637-007
Abstract: This publication provides basic guidelines for the application of the Forest and Ungulates Enforcement Aid and collates current knowledge on the topic of forest and Ungulates in Switzerland. A first section contains scientific information on the interaction between forest and Ungulates, forest dynamics and wildlife biology. The second section presents and discusses methods for the surveying and assessment of the impact of Ungulates on forest regeneration, the surveying of Ungulate populations and for habitat improvement and the reduction of disturbance in wildlife habitats. The third and final section contains eight accounts of practical experience in the area of forest and wildlife.
Linx individual B132 from north-eastern Switzerland sighted in Trentino (northern Italy)
Brugnoli A,Alberti M,Rocca M
Forest@ , 2008, DOI: 10.3832/efor0545-0050269
Abstract: A subadult lynx was caught in February 2008 in the Swiss National Park, fitted with a Gps-Gsm radio-collar and later genetically identified as B132 - i.e., a male born in 2006 in North-Eastern Switzerland -. B132 is at present located in the western Trentino region, more than 200 km away from his mother's home range. This is the furthest dispersal ever documented outside of Scandinavia for a Eurasian lynx.
La solidaridad de mercado y sus sujetos en el capitalismo de consumo: un análisis del discurso neoliberal sobre piezas de publicidad en Chile
Román Brugnoli, José Antonio;Energici Sprovera, María Alejandra;
Psicologia & Sociedade , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-71822010000200005
Abstract: the neoliberal nature of the process of modernization and the installation of a consumer society model has involved a change in social norms of social ties from a mutual solidarity to an altruist notion of solidarity. also, it has introduced changes in the subjectivity. in this context it is relevant to investigate the relationship between this new norm of solidarity and forms of subjectivity involved. a discourse analysis was conducted from a model of critical psychology proposed by parker (1990, 1992). we analyzed twelve pieces of aid advertising or promoting solidarity, issued by for-profit institutions. in the results, we described the neoliberal solidarity and the types of solidarity actors that can be performed through consumption.
A project of environmental improvement for Red deer on the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, Central Italy
Nicoloso S,Vagaggini L,Ciuti F,Brugnoli A
Forest@ , 2007,
Abstract: The Red deer (Cervus elaphus L.) population living on the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines had in 2006 an estimated minimum size of approximately 2275 individuals, which occur in two Regions (Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna) and four Provinces (Pistoia, Prato, Florence and Bologna). Since 2000 the population has been target of selective hunting, also in order to respond to the increasing request for concrete solutions against species impact on human activities. In this note we describe a pilot experience of projecting environmental improvement actions - such as restoration and preservation of open areas - purposely intended for Red deer. Surveys concentrated on the mountainous area of Pistoia and Sambuca Pistoiese Communes and in the territories belonging to Tuscany Regional Public Property within the competence of the Pistoiese Apennines Mountain Community or within general public competence. Here, the once pastured zones are affected by the invasion and progressive colonization of arbustive and herbaceous vegetation. Areas which are currently covered by shrubs and/or other pioneer vegetation forms have been located by means of GPS technology. For each area a descriptive paper has been realized, whose aim is including the main information recollected during field surveys jointly with data inferred from the Plan for the Forest Resource Assessment in force. 16 areas we considered fitting this project’s goals have been located, for a total extent of 21 ha: on this surface extensive vegetation cutting by mowing and mulching using mechanical machinery will be carried out in the summer 2007. Where soil position allows, superficial tillage activities with subsequent sowing of autochthonous herbaceous species are planned. In the end we evaluated intervention and correct application terms of Tuscany Forest Law no. 39/00 and Tuscany Forest Regulations (D.P.G.R. no. 48/R/03).
Golden mussel Limnoperna fortunei (Bivalvia: Mytilidae) distribution in the main hydrographical basins of Uruguay: update and predictions
Brugnoli Ernesto,Clemente Juan,Boccardi Lucía,Borthagaray Ana
Anais da Academia Brasileira de Ciências , 2005,
Abstract: Limnoperna fortunei, an Asiatic rivers bivalve has become a worldwide problematic invasive species causing several water quality and macrofouling problems. In the Neotropical region it was first recorded in 1991 in the Río de la Plata coast, Buenos Aires province. Since this, it showed a quick upstream invasion into the principals aquatic systems of the Plata Basin. Nevertheless, there is not a study about its invasion and distribution process in aquatic systems of Uruguay. We describe the new records of Limnoperna fortunei in Uruguayan coast of Río de la Plata, Santa Lucía, Negro and Uruguay Rivers. With these results we aim to estimate its distributional limits for Uruguay main hydrographical basins. We also deal with the role of salinity as the main abiotic factor in limiting the east distribution of this mussel in Uruguayan coast of Río de la Plata and as a potential determinant of the "new" colonization on the Atlantic and the Merín Lagoon Basins. Its presence in the ecosystems not only can cause changes at the ecosystem level but also endanger the associated community, favoring the displacement and the disappearance of endemic species.
Phosphoinositide 3-kinase is associated to the nucleus of HL-60 cells and is involved in their ATRA-induced granulocytic differentiation
M. Marchisio,L.M. Neri,F. Brugnoli,A. Gonelli
European Journal of Histochemistry , 2009, DOI: 10.4081/ejh.2000.61
Abstract: Phosphoinositide 3-kinases (PI 3-kinases), a class of enzymes implicated in growth factor-induced mitogenic response and many other intracellular signalling pathways, act by phosphorylation at the D-3’-OH position of the myo-inositol ring of phosphoinositides. The products of these reactions, 3-phosphoinositides, are not substrates of any known phospholipase C, are not components of the canonical phosphoinositide turnover and are now regarded as important second messengers, whose downstream effects are implicated in many processes including regulation of the cell cycle, cellular transformation, vesicle transport and reorganisation of the cytoskeleton.
