Electrical resonance in the θ frequency range in olfactory amygdala neurons
(Public Library of Science, 2014)
The cortical amygdala receives direct olfactory inputs and is thought to participate in processing and learning of biologically relevant olfactory cues. As for other brain structures implicated in learning, the principal ...
Nesting biology and fungiculture of the fungus-growing ant, Mycetagroicus cerradensis: New light on the origin of higher-attine agriculture
(Univ Arizona, 2011-02-04)
The genus Mycetagroicus is perhaps the least known of all fungus-growing ant genera, having been first described in 2001 from museum specimens. A recent molecular phylogenetic analysis of the fungus-growing ants demonstrated ...
Rediscovery of the enigmatic fungus-farming ant Mycetosoritis asper Mayr (Hymenoptera: Formicidae): Implications for taxonomy, phylogeny, and the evolution of agriculture in ants
(Public Library Science, 2017-05-10)
We report the rediscovery of the exceedingly rarely collected and enigmatic fungus-farming ant species Mycetosoritis asper. Since the description of the type specimen in 1887, only four additional specimens are known to ...

Low-carbon agriculture in South America to mitigate global climate change and advance food security
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-01-01)
The worldwide historical carbon (C) losses due to Land Use and Land-Use Change between 1870 and 2014 are estimated at 148 Pg C (1 Pg = 1 billion ton). South America is chosen for this study because its soils contain 10.3% ...
Changes in the genetic structure of Bacteria and microbial activity in an agricultural soil amended with tannery sludge
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2011)
The application of tannery sludge to soils is a form of recycling; however, few studies have examined the impacts of this practice on soil microbial properties. We studied effects of two applications (2006 and 2007) of ...
