Statistical Inference on Associated Fertility Life Parameters Using Jackknife Technique: Computational Aspects
Abstract Knowledge of population growth potential is crucial for studying population dynamics and for establishing management tactics for pest control. Estimation of population growth can be achievedExpand
Toxicity of neonicotinoid insecticides to Neoseiulus californicus and Phytoseiulus macropilis (Acari: Phytoseiidae) and their impact on functional response to Tetranychus urticae (Acari:
Evaluations of possible impacts of insecticides on natural enemies are highly relevant in integrated pest management (IPM) programs. Because of the intensive use of neonicotinoid insecticides forExpand
Biochar increases plant-available water in a sandy loam soil under an aerobic rice crop system
Abstract. The main objective of this study was to assess the impact of biochar rate (0, 8, 16 and 32 Mg ha−1) on the water retention capacity (WRC) of a sandy loam Dystric Plinthosol. The appliedExpand
Evaluation of the diversity of rhizobia in Brazilian agricultural soils cultivated with soybeans
The diversity of rhizobia in agricultural soils planted with soybean (Glycine max L.) and managed under conventional or notillage practices was evaluated by using a combination of trap-host captureExpand
Microbial degradation of sulfentrazone in a Brazilian rhodic hapludox soil
Sulfentrazone is amongst the most widely used herbicides for treating the main crops in the State of São Paulo, Brazil, but few studies are available on the biotransformation of this compound inExpand
Fish exposure to nano-TiO2 under different experimental conditions: methodological aspects for nanoecotoxicology investigations.
The ecotoxicology of nano-TiO2 has been extensively studied in recent years; however, few toxicological investigations have considered the photocatalytic properties of the substance, which canExpand
Near-global impact of the Madden-Julian Oscillation on rainfall
The accuracy of synoptic-based weather forecasting deteriorates rapidly after five days and is not routinely available beyond 10 days. Conversely, climate forecasts are generally not feasible forExpand
Effect of sewage sludge on suppressiveness to soil-borne plant pathogens
Abstract The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of sewage sludge on soil suppressiveness to the pathogens Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici on tomato, Sclerotium rolfsii on bean,Expand
Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) growth and development response to CO2 enrichment under different temperature regimes
Abstract The carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) concentration of the global atmosphere has increased during the last decades. This increase is expected to impact the diurnal variation in temperature as well asExpand
Comparative biology and functional response of Trissolcus spp. (Hymenoptera: Scelionidae) and implications for stink bugs (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) biological control
Abstract The biological parameters and functional responses of populations of Trissolcus basalis , Trissolcus brochymenae , Trissolcus teretis and Trissolcus urichi , from central Brazil, attackingExpand
