Trends of plant use by humans and nonhuman primates in Amazonia
Analyses of plant use in Amazonia by three species of nonhuman primates reveal a common trend: more primitive plant species are used as food. An identical situation prevails for three indigenousExpand

Steroids, taxonomic markers?
The use of steroids as taxonomic markers of the angiosperms was evaluated. To this end evolutionary advancement parameters, based on oxidation state and skeletal specialization of each steroid wereExpand

Biosynthetic interdependence of lignins and secondary metabolites in angiosperms
Abstract The morphology and metabolism of angiosperms are connected to lignin production. Morphology depends on the structure of genetically controlled cellulose templates for lignin deposition;Expand

Biodiversity: modelling angiosperms as networks.
In the neotropics, one of the last biological frontiers, the major ecological concern should not involve local strategies, but global effects often responsible for irreparable damage. For a holisticExpand

Quantitative chemo-biology: A chemical paradigm to understand biological phenomena
While Physical Chemistry arose as a multidisciplinary approach necessary to describe matter, Chemo-Biology became a novel interdisciplinary effort to understand life. However, this endeavour requiresExpand
