Triazine resistant Brassica napus ssp. oleifera and ssp. rapifera were hybridized to cultivars of B. oleracea ssp. italica, ssp. botrytis, ssp. capitata and ssp. fimbriata. The interspecific embryos did not survive in vivo but could be rescued in vitro using a culture medium developed by Monnier (1973). The embryos did not grow directly into normal plants(More)
Atrazine resistant Brassica napus × B. oleracea F1 hybrids were backcrossed to both parental species. The backcrosses to B. napus produced seeds in both directions but results were much better when the F1 hybrid was the pollen parent. Backcrosses to B. oleracea failed completely but BC1s were rescued by embryo culture both from a tetraploid hybrid (2n = 4x(More)
Seed tuber production fromin vitro potato plantlets and cuttings was conducted in large propagation beds in a greenhouse. Propagules of wholein vitro plantlets (WIP), plantlets with apical (ACR) and lateral (LCR) cuttings removed, the rooted apical cuttings (RAC) and rooted lateral cuttings (RLC) were planted at three densities of 25, 49 and 100 plants per(More)
F1 hybrids of triazine resistant Brassica napus and triazine susceptible B. oleracea were morphologically intermediate to the parent species. Of 49 hybrids examined, 44 had 28 chromosomes, two had 37, one had 38 and two had 56. The 38-chromosome plant was thought to be a matromorph, the others, A1C1C (28), A1C1CC (37) or A1A1C1C1CC (56) type hybrids. Pollen(More)
A greenhouse minituber production system involving low inputs of in vitro potato plantlets and propagation media is described, in vitro plantlets of six potato cultivars were sectioned into nodal cuttings and separately planted into moist peat based growing medium in shallow plastic trays. Cultivar differences were evident with respect to node viability,(More)
Triazine resistance originally observed in a weed biotype of birdsrape (Brassica campestris L.) has been transferred through cytoplasmic substitution into rutabaga (Brassica napus ssp. Rapifera [Metzg.] Minsk.) by conventional backcrossing. Photosynthetic function and resistance to triazines were examined in six backcross generations of rutabaga as well as(More)
The genus Macronemus Dejean, 1835 is redescribed and two new species are described: Macronemus mimus sp. nov. from Brazil (Bahia to Santa Catarina) and Argentina and Macronemus giuglarisi sp. nov. from French Guiana and Brazil (Amapá, Amazonas). M. verrucosus (Pascoe, 1866) is considered a new synonym of M. asperulus White, 1855. New distributional data and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate factors associated with morbidities among Brazilian women aged 40-65 years and with 11 or more years of schooling. METHODS A secondary analysis of a cross-sectional population-based study was conducted, using an anonymous self-report questionnaire completed by 377 women. Were evaluated, with this instrument, some morbidities(More)
OBJECTIVE Investigate factors associated with the onset of diabetes in women aged more than 49 years. DESIGN AND METHODS Cross-sectional, population-based study using self-reports with 622 women. The dependent variable was the age of occurrence of diabetes using the life table method. Cox multiple regression models were adjusted to analyse the onset of(More)
OBJECTIVES Brazil has an aging population. This study aims to raise awareness of the prevalence and factors associated with falls among Brazilian women. STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional study with 622 women over 50 years of age was conducted between 05/10/11 and 10/31/11 in the city of Campinas/São Paulo/Brazil in the form of a population survey.
