Morphometry, Bite-Force, and Paleobiology of the Late Miocene Caiman Purussaurus brasiliensis
Purussaurus brasiliensis thrived in the northwestern portion of South America during the Late Miocene. Although substantial material has been recovered since its early discovery, this fossilExpand
Abstract Two new species of anhingas are described from upper Miocene–Pliocene (Huayquerian) sediments of southwestern Amazonia, increasing the known diversity of these birds to two genera and atExpand
A New Specimen of Caiman brevirostris (Crocodylia, Alligatoridae) from the Late Miocene of Brazil
The holotype materials of this species and a new specimen from the late Miocene of southwestern Amazonia, Brazil are presented and the diagnosis was expanded, and a phylogenetic analysis was conducted, returning results that consistently recover Caiman brevirostris within a clade that includes Caiman latrostris, Caiman cf.

A new rodent (Caviomorpha: Dinomyidae) from the upper Miocene of southwestern Brazilian Amazonia
The abundant and diverse fossil record of protohypsodont dinomyids suggests that an important radiative event may have occurred during the middle–late Miocene of northern South America. Expand

Detrital zircon U–Pb geochronology constrains the age of Brazilian Neogene deposits from Western Amazonia
Abstract The fossiliferous beds of the Solimoes Formation, western Brazilian Amazon have yielded several vertebrate fossils that are key to understand the evolution of Neotropical biotas. AlthoughExpand
Retrospective study of malaria prevalence and Anopheles genus in the area of influence of the Binational Itaipu Reservoir.
The malaria in the left bank of Paraná River is a focal problem, which must be approached locally through health, educational and social actions to prevent the continuity of outbreaks in the area and it is necessary to plan and apply effective surveillance measures in the influence area of the Itaipu Reservoir.

Serological, clinical and epidemiological evaluation of toxocariasis in urban areas of south Brazil.
It is important to institute educational programs to inform families and educators, as well as to improve sanitary control of animals and cleaning of the areas intended for recreation in order to prevent toxocariasis. Expand
Ornithological Records from a Campina/Campinarana Enclave on the Upper Juruá River, Acre, Brazil
Despite the relatively small size of the campina/campinarana enclave, these records indicate the area is extremely important for conservation of local biodiversity, and reinforces the need for further studies of both the avifauna and other groups of animals. Expand
Birds associated with bamboo forests in eastern Acre, Brazil
SUMMARY.—Rainforest habitats dominated by arborescent bamboo of the genus Guadua are common in south- west Amazonia. We gathered data on the avifauna associated with this type of forest in south-Expand
