Resumo em português Por meio de estudos moleculares, este trabalho determinou a distância genética entre 12 genótipos de A. comosus por marcadores RAPD (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA), utilizando 11 "primers" decâmeros da OPERON Technologies Inc. Dos 12 genótipos , 1 foi proveniente da Jamaica, 2 do Estado do Acre (Quinari e RBR-1), 2 do Estado do Maranhão (Turiaçu e São Domingos), 3 do Estado do Piauí (Cefas, Floriano-1 e Floriano-2), 2 do Estado da Bahia (Monte Alegre-1 e Monte (mais) Alegre-2) e 2 de Minas Gerais (Pérola e Smouth Cayenne). Pela análise de "cluster", utilizando o método de UPGMA, foi constatada uma grande divergência entre os genótipos de A. comosus estudados com a separação destes em dois grupos a uma distância genética de 31,1%. Resumo em inglês Through molecular studies, the genetic distance among 12 genotypes of A. comosus for RAPD markers (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA) was determined using 11 primers (decamers) of the OPERON Technologies Inc. From the 12 genotypes, 1 came from Jamaica, 2 from the State of Acre (Quinari and RBR-1), 2 from the State of Maranhão (Turiaçu and São Domigos), 3 the State of Piauí (Cefas, Floriano-1 and Floriano-2), 2 from the State of Bahia (Monte Alegre-1 and Monte Alegre-2) (mais) and 2 from Minas Gerais (Pérola and Smooth Cayenne). By the analysis of cluster, using the method of UPGMA, a great divergence was verified among the genotypes of A. comosus studied or tima separation in two groups of a genetic distance of 31,1%.

Lissopedia, gen.n. de Paratetrapediini para a região neotropical, com as descrições de três espécies novas (Hymenoptera, Apoidea, Anthophoridae)/ Lissopedia, gen.n. of Paratetrapediini in the neotropical region with descriptions of three new species (Hymenoptera, Apoidea, Anthophoridae)

Moure, Jesus Santiago
1992-01-01

Resumo em inglês Lissopedia, a new genus is proposed for Tetrapedia globulosa Friese, 1899, from Brazil and to include Tetrapedia flavopicta Cockerell, described from Yucatan, México. Three new species: Lissopedia ochronota from Albany, Jamaica, Lissopedia xanthina from Carmen (on the River Madre de Dios), Pando, Bolívia, and Lissopedia tristriata from Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil are described. The female of Lissopedia globulosa is described from Barreiras, Bahia, Brazil and thus a localit (mais) y is given for this species. This genus seems to be confined to the Neotropical Region. Exomalopsini, Tapinotaspidini and Paratetrapediini are considered as tribes of Exomalopsinae.

O Brasil de Marianne North: lembranças de uma viajante inglesa/ The Brazil of Marianne North: memories of an english traveler

Gazzola, Ana Lúcia Almeida
2008-12-01

Resumo em português A partir de reflexões sobre a mulher e a feminilidade no período vitoriano, a explosão do mercado literário no século XIX e o acesso da mulher à educação, à literatura e ao jornalismo, o texto introduz a obra de Marianne North, pintora inglesa que viajava com o objetivo de pintar a flora de outros países, particularmente a exótica flora tropical. Marianne tornou-se uma das mais famosas viajantes globetrotters de sua época, ao percorrer inúmeros países, como (mais) Canadá, Estados Unidos, Jamaica, Brasil, Teneriffe, Japão, Bornéu, Java, Ceilão, Singapura, Índia, Gales, Austrália, Nova Zelândia, Tasmânia, África do Sul, as ilhas Seychelles e Chile. No total, ela deixou registrado aproximadamente 727 gêneros (quase 1.000 espécies) de plantas, algumas bem pouco conhecidas dos estudiosos. O texto trata, pois, da dupla condição de Marianne North como pintora e como autora de relatos dos países visitados. No Brasil, por exemplo, ela viveu entre 1872 e 1873. Seu profissionalismo e objetividade a distinguem das demais viajantes do século XIX. Resumo em inglês Starting from reflections about woman and femininity in the Victorian era, the explosion of literary market in the 19th century, and the access of women to education, literature, and journalism, this text introduces the work of Marianne North, English painter who used to travel aiming to paint the flora of other countries, particularly the exotic tropical flora. Marianne became one of the most famous globetrotter travelers of her time, visiting several countries such as C (mais) anada, USA, Jamaica, Brazil, Tenerife, Japan, Borneo, Java, Ceylon, Singapore, India, Wales, Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, South Africa, Seychelles Islands, and Chile. In total, she left registers of about 272 genres (almost 1000 species) of plants, some of them little known by the experts. Hence, the text deals with the dual condition of Marianne North as a painter and author of reports about the visited countries. In Brazil, for instance, she lived between 1972 and 1873. Her professionalism and objectivity distinguish her from the other travelers of 19th century.

Notas e descrições em Parandrini (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae, Parandrinae)/ Notes and descriptions on Parandrini (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae, Parandrinae).

Santos -Silva, Antonio
2002-06-01

Resumo em inglês The genus Parandra is reviewed and four genera are recognized: Parandra Latreille, 1804, Neandra Lameere, 1912, stat. nov., Archandra Lameere, 1912, stat. nov. and Acutandra gen. nov. The genus Parandra is subdivided in two subgenera: Parandra (Parandra) s. str. and Parandra (Birandra) subgen. nov. The geographical distribution of P. (P.) laevis Latreille, 1804 is commented and the probable synonymy between P. cubaecola Chevrolat, 1862 and P. (P.) cribrata Thomson, 1861 i (mais) s discussed. New species described: P. (P.) tavakiliani from Puerto Rico and P. (Birandra) mariahelenae from Jamaica. New combinations: Neandra brunnea (Fabricius, 1798), Neandra marginicollis (Schaeffer, 1929), Archandra caspia (Ménétriès, 1832), Acutandra punctatissima (Thomson, 1861), A. degeeri (Thomson, 1867), A. murrayi (Lameere, 1912), A. araucana (Bosq, 1951), A. ubitiara (Santos-Silva & Martins, 2000), all from Parandra. Keys to genera of Parandrini, subgenera of Parandra and American species of Parandra and Acutandra are added.

Estudo da atividade antibacteriana de plantas medicinais, aromáticas e corantes naturais

Bara, Maria Teresa Freitas; Vanetti, Maria Cristina Dantas
1998-01-01

Resumo em português O emprego de recursos naturais como mecanismo auxiliar no tratamento de distintas patologias tem ressurgido, com ênfase, nos útimos tempos. Tendo em vista esta situação, este estudo teve por finalidade investigar a atividade antimicrobiana de algumas plantas medicinais e aromáticas bastantes comuns na cultura brasileira. Foi constatado que, de modo particular, o alecrim-pimenta (Lippia sidoides) levou a uma considerável inibição do crescimento bacteriano. Tambêm (mais) plantas como alecrim (Rosmarinus officinalis), cravo (Sysygium aromaticum), noz-moscada (Myristica fragrans), pimenta-da-jamaica (Pimenta dioica) e sálvia (Salvia officinalis) demonstraram constituir fontes eficientes de compostos bioativos antibacterianos. Resumo em inglês Medicinal plants, natural colour and spices were examined in vitro for antibacterial effects on the growth of Escherichia coli (EPEC) serotype O:125, Salmonella thyphimurium, Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria monocytogenes ATCC 7644 and Yersinia enterocolitica ATCC 9610. The most effective medicinal plant was Lippia sidoides at concentration of 3 percent (w/v), that added to Trypticase Soya Broth completely inhibited the growth of S. thyphimurium, S. aureus, L. monocytogene (mais) s and Y. enterocolitica. Among the spices, the cloves (Sysygium aromaticum) extract had the strongest inhibitory activity on the growth of E. coli, S. thyphimurium e Y. enterocolitica demonstred through the agar difussion technique. Sage (Salvia officinalis) and rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) extracts inhibited the growth of L. monocytogenes and S. aureus. The nutmeg (Myristica fragrans) extract also prevented the development of L. monocytogenes.
