Isolation and selection of biosurfactant-producing bacteria
TLDR
Only five strains, all of them haemolytic, tested positive for biosurfactant-production and are thus probably associated with surfactant-producing bacteria.
Biodiversity and Conservation of Plants in Brazil
TLDR
Coordinated efforts to catalog Brazil's flora are in progress and include projects such as the conservation priority-setting workshops of the Brazilian Ministry of the Environment; development of threatened species lists for plants; and the assembly of type data on species of northeastern Brazil through the Darwin Initiative, which greatly assist in increasing knowledge.
The Brazilian seagrasses
TLDR
A critical review of the literature and abundant material recently collected along the coast of Brazil leads to the conclusion that Halodule brasiliensis Lipkin cannot be distinguished from H. wrightii , and H. lilianae den Hartog cannot be separated from Halophila emarginata .
Philcoxia: A new genus of Scrophulariaceae with three new species from Eastern Brazil
TLDR
Possessing a determinate monotelic inflorescence, the genus appears to be one of the very few members of tribe Scrophulariae recorded for Brazil, and apparently restricted to areas of deep bare sand.
Phylogenetic Analysis of Inter- and Infrageneric Relationships of Leiothrix Ruhland (Eriocaulaceae)
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of Leiothrix including 33 of its 37 species based on 47 characters was performed, and the two shortest cladograms found and an alternative cladogram one step longer than the shortest ones are discussed.
Phytoremediation of 2,4‐dichlorophenol by Brassica napus hairy root cultures
TLDR
Hairy root cultures of Brassica napus with high biomass and genetic stability which produce peroxidases, enzymes involved in biodegradation processes used to study the removal of 2,4‐dichlorophenol, a common contaminant in industrial effluents that is highly toxic for human and aquatic life.
A comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of Eriocaulaceae: Evidence from nuclear (ITS) and plastid (psbA-trnH and trnL-F) DNA sequences
TLDR
The first comprehensive phylogenetic study of Eriocaulaceae based on individual and combined molecular datasets, including the plastidpsbA-trnH and trnL-F and the nuclear ITS, suggests two principal generic realignments in the family.
Molecular phylogeny, morphology and their implications for the taxonomy of Eriocaulaceae
TLDR
Uma nova descricao e chave generica para a familia, utilizando caracteres de varias fontes sao apresentadas, refletindo a taxonomia atual das Eriocaulaceae.
Reestablishment and new circumscription of Comanthera (Eriocaulaceae)
TLDR
The genus Syngonanthus will now include 38 species, six varieties and four subspecies, and 43 new synonyms, 39 new combinations, one name change, three changes of status, eight lectotypifications and one neotypification are proposed.
