Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are one of the most widespread organic environmental pollutants that pose a potential risk to marine biota. Although they occur as mixtures in the marine environment, only little information exists about their joint action on fish behavior. In 4-day tests with juvenile gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata)(More)
Brazilian scientific production has increased significantly over the last decade, and mental health has been a leading research field in the country, with a growing number of articles published in high quality international journals. This article analyses the scientific output of mental health research between 2004 and 2006 and estimates individual research(More)
On-line behavioural monitoring systems are nowadays a common tool in ecotoxicological research. Although applied successfully to freshwater species, they are rarely used in the marine field. Here we present first results about the Marine On-line Biomonitor System (MOBS), a new automatic system for recording behavioural responses of marine and freshwater(More)
This paper discusses how to take advantage of clustering techniques to analyze and extract useful information from multitemporal images of low spatial resolution satellites to monitor the sugarcane expansion. Additionally, we introduce the SatImagExplorer system that was developed to automatically extract time series from a huge volume of remote sensing(More)
Haplogroup E3b is defined by a single nucleotide mutation (SNP) in locus M35 and is found at high frequency (more than 35%) in populations from North Africa with a heterogeneous distribution. On the basis of compilation of 553 Y-chromosomes from Europe and 633 from sub-Saharan Africa we selected 130 individuals belonging to haplogroup E3b and characterized(More)
This work updates the characterization of winter fish communities in salt marsh areas of Guadiana estuary (SE-Portugal) and discusses the potential risks of habitat dominance by a nonindigenous species (NIS). To this effect, six field campaigns were carried out during winter season targeting the collection of fish species. Individuals from seven different(More)
