Evaluation of the Genotoxic Potential of the Mineral Coal Tailings Through the Helix aspersa (Müller, 1774)
It is demonstrated that the coal pyrite tailings are potentially genotoxic and that H. aspersa has proven to be a sensitive instrument for a better risk assessment of environmental pollution.
Heavy-Metal Content and Oxidative Damage in Hypsiboas faber: The Impact of Coal-Mining Pollutants on Amphibians
The antioxidant system of H. faber is sensitive to pollutants present in coal-mining wastes, and its SOD and GPx activity may be a potential biomarker for monitoring the level of contaminants in the environment.
NEOTROPICAL XENARTHRANS: a data set of occurrence of xenarthran species in the Neotropics.
The main objective with Neotropical Xenarthrans is to make occurrence and quantitative data available to facilitate more ecological research, particularly if the xenarthran data is integrated with other data sets of Neotropic Series that will become available very soon.
Epidemiology and injuries (1994–2005) resulting from poisonous animals in southern Santa Catarina State, Brazil
The high frequency of victim recuperation suggests that the public health system is efficient, and the low frequency of recovered victims with sequelae also suggests that this system is fast and well-adjusted, however, there may have been deficiencies in the epidemiologic information system.
Monk parakeet invasion success: a role for nest thermoregulation and bactericidal potential of plant nest material?
Results suggest both thermoregulation and the use of bactericidal plants could potentially influence monk parakeet reproductive success and may aid the expansion of the species in new non-native environments.
Seed dispersal by birds on artificial perches in reclaimed areas after surface coal mining in Siderópolis municipality, Santa Catarina State, Brazil
The Coal Basin of Santa Catarina state, Brazil, has approximately six thousand hectares of degraded areas due to the exploitation of mineral coal. Nowadays, several areas are under reclaim process,
ATLANTIC BIRD TRAITS: a data set of bird morphological traits from the Atlantic forests of South America.
The ATLANTIC BIRD TRAITS (ABT) is the most comprehensive data set on measurements of bird morphological traits found in a biodiversity hotspot; it provides data for basic and applied research at multiple scales, from individual to community, and from the local to the macroecological perspectives.
Mercury content in the fur of jaguars (Panthera onca) from two areas under different levels of gold mining impact in the Brazilian Pantanal.
The data indicate that Hg is an important threat to jaguars within at-risk regions of the Pantanal, and therefore Jaguars show great potential to accumulate Hg by biomagnification.
