Surface water quality in the Sinos River basin, in Southern Brazil: tracking microbiological contamination and correlation with physicochemical parameters
It is corroborated that only the viral assay itself is reliable for the diagnosis of fecal contamination by viruses in environmental samples, and a small, nonconstant, and unstable correlation between viruses and physicochemical parameters is observed. Expand
Microbial risk assessment in recreational freshwaters from southern Brazil.
Results show that commonly used bacterial indicators for water quality may not infer health risks associated with viruses in recreational freshwaters. Expand
Integrated assessment of air pollution by metals and source apportionment using ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum Lam.) in southern Brazil
The anthropogenic impact on air pollution in the investigated area could be clearly demonstrated with the proposed method: biomonitoring with L. multiflorum and active monitoring in areas with different levels of urbanization and industrialization. Expand
