Fluorescence in situhybridisation (FISH) and double FISH experiments were carried out to ascertain the chromosomal distribution pattern of the 45S and 5S ribosomal (r) DNAs in four populations of the characid fish Astyanax scabripinnis – a group considered to be a species complex for its wide karyotypical and morphological diversity. The results regarding(More)
Astyanax scabripinnis has been considered a species complex because it presents high karyotypic and morphological variability among its populations. In this work, individuals of two A. scabripinnis populations from different streams in the same hydrographic basin were analyzed through C‐banding and AgNOR. Although they present distinct diploid numbers, they(More)
Prevalence of oropharyngeal dysphagia among the elderly is high, but underestimated and underdiagnosed. It may give raise to relevant complications impacting on morbidity, hospital length of stay and health care costs. Dysphagia evaluation and management is a multidisciplinary task; it includes a detailed history taking, clinical and instrumental exams, and(More)
