Phylogeny of Rutaceae based on twononcoding regions from cpDNA.
Primarily known only by the edible fruits of Citrus, Rutaceae comprise a large (c. 160 genera and 1900 species), morphologically diverse, cosmopolitan family. Of its extraordinary array of secondaryExpand
Spatiotemporal distribution of floral resources in a Brazilian city: Implications for the maintenance of pollinators, especially bees
The results show that the campus of Universidade de Sao Paulo in Ribeirao Preto is able to maintain bee populations amid a monoculture matrix, acting as a refuge, and provides a list of several attractive native plants to different pollinator groups, coupled with a phenogram, that can be used in the design and planning of urban areas.

Antileishmanial Activity of the Hydroalcoholic Extract of Miconia langsdorffii, Isolated Compounds, and Semi-Synthetic Derivatives
The in vitro activity of the crude hydroalcoholic extract of the aerial parts of Miconia langsdorffii Cogn. was evaluated against the promastigote forms of L. amazonensis, the causative agent ofExpand
Neonatal stroke.
The perinatal ischemic stroke is defined as "a group of heterogenous conditions with a focal disruption of cerebral flow secondary to an arterial or a venous thrombosis or embolization between the 20Expand
Bioactivity of Pelargonium graveolens essential oil and related monoterpenoids against sweet potato whitefly, Bemisia tabaci biotype B
Results suggest that PG-EO and its related monoterpenes are potentially applicable to develop effective natural product-based pest-management compounds. Expand
Cyclooxygenase inhibitory properties of nor-neolignans from Styrax pohlii
Chemical investigation of the n-hexane and EtOAc fractions of the ethanolic extract from Styrax pohlii (Styracaceae) aerial parts resulted in the isolation of the benzofuran nor-neolignan derivativesExpand
Antimicrobial Activity of the Essential Oil of Plectranthus neochilus against Cariogenic Bacteria
The results suggested that the essential oil extracted from the leaves of Plectranthus neochilus displays promising activity against most of the evaluated cariogenic bacteria, especially S. mutans. Expand
Chilean Pitavia more closely related to Oceania and Old World Rutaceae than to Neotropical groups: evidence from two cpDNA non-coding regions, with a new subfamilial classification of the family
Results showed Pitavia as sister to Flindersia and Lunasia, both genera with species scattered through Australia, Philippines, Moluccas, New Guinea and the Malayan region, and phylogenetically far from other Neotropical Rutaceae, as well as a new circumscription of the subfamilies of Rutaceae is presented and discussed.

Anthelmintic Effects of the Essential Oil of Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill., Apiaceae) against Schistosoma mansoni
In summary, FV‐EO displayed moderate in vitro schistosomicidal activity against adult S. mansoni worms, exerted remarkable inhibitory effects on the egg development, and was of low toxicity. Expand
Chemical Composition, Antibacterial, Schistosomicidal, and Cytotoxic Activities of the Essential Oil of Dysphania ambrosioides (L.) Mosyakin & Clemants (Chenopodiaceae)
The in vitro schistosomicidal effects of DA‐EO on Schistosoma mansoni worms and its cytotoxicity to GM07492‐A cells in vitro demonstrate the promising schistOSomicidal potential of the essential oil of Dysphania ambrosioides. Expand
