A diallel study of yield components and fruit quality in chilli pepper (Capsicum baccatum)
Analysis of variance for the combining ability of peppers showed that GCA effects exhibited significant difference and SCA effects of the crosses were significant, except for the height of first bifurcation. Expand
Phenotypic diversity, correlation and importance of variables for fruit quality and yield traits in Brazilian peppers (Capsicum baccatum)
The results of this study showed that spice and vegetable type specific varieties can be developed from C. baccatum based on morphological fruit quality traits and yield components, and to determine the correlation between these characters and their contribution for the genetic variability. Expand
Growth and quality of Brazilian accessions of Capsicum chinense fruits
Abstract Total fresh and dry weight of Capsicum chinense fruit accessions were inversely correlated with accumulation of dry matter, and fruits with a higher percentage of dry matter accumulatedExpand

Antimalarial activity of Bidens pilosa L. (Asteraceae) ethanol extracts from wild plants collected in various localities or plants cultivated in humus soil
Ethanol extracts from wild plants collected in three different regions of Brazil and from plants cultivated in various soil conditions were tested, and the wild plants were the most active, indicating a good candidate for pre‐clinical tests as a phytotherapeutic agent or for chemical isolation of the active compounds.
