Eucalyptus plantations occupy almost 20 million ha worldwide and exceed 3.7 million ha in Brazil alone. Improved genetics and silviculture have led to as much as a three-fold increase in productivity in Eucalyptus plantations in Brazil and the large land area occupied by these highly productive ecosystems raises concern over their effect on local water(More)

The screen of 10 soft coral extracts collected from the Colombian Caribbean Sea in the TPA-induced ear edema model allowed us to identify Eunicea fusca extract among others as an interesting source of active compounds. The new diterpene, fuscoside E (1), along with the known fuscoside B (2), fuscol (3), (+)-germacrene D (4) and a mixture of six sterols(More)
Chemical synthesis is a complicated process that uses a large set of rules, well known by the experts in the field. A correct synthesis is a sequence of chemical reactions, selected from those included in a catalog, that must be applied to certain “initial products” to obtain a given “goal product”. The catalog must also contain information that will be(More)
More than 300 hot spring areas are located along the Chilean Andes, associated with Quaternary volcanism. Systematic geothermal exploration in the northern part of the country started by the end of 1968, followed by basic geological, geochemical and volcanological surveys in many geothermal areas of southern Chile. These studies, together with wells drilled(More)
Participants first completed a state affect checklist that included a fatigue (energy-tiredness) index and a measure of mental sharpness. They then were presented a simple memory challenge. In the first minute of the two-minute work period, heart rate responses (1) rose with values on the fatigue index, and (2) fell with values on the measure of mental(More)
