Conservation of Brycon orbignyanus natural populations and stocks for their reproductive, genetic, environmental sustainability: A model for species threatened with extinction
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Facultad de Agronomía e Ingeniería Forestal, 2009)
The importance of considering genetic diversity in shark and ray conservation policies
Many populations of elasmobranchs (sharks and rays) are experiencing severe declines due to the high demand for shark fins in Asia, the activities of unregulated fisheries, and increases in shark and ray catches. Recently, ...
RAPD analysis in the Neotropical fish Brycon lundii: Genetic diversity and its implications for the conservation of the species
Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique was used to examine the genetic variability on an endangered Neotropical fish species, Brycon lundii, collected on two regions with distinct environmental conditions in the ...
Finding the "conservation" in Conservation Genetics - Progress in Latin America
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
Linking genetic and environmental factors in amphibian disease risk
A central question in evolutionary biology is how interactions between organisms and the environment shape genetic differentiation. The pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) has caused variable population declines ...
Agronomic evaluation and morphological characterization of chili peppers (Capsicum annuum, Solanaceae) from Brazil.
(Australian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences, v. 10, n. 13, p. 63-70, 2016., 2017)
Temporal genetic dynamics of reintroduced and translocated populations of the endangered golden lion tamarin (Leontopithecus rosalia)
Reintroductions—captive-born animals introduced into the species’ original distribution area—and translocations—free-living animals transferred to another location within the historical distribution area—are important ...
Mendelian inheritance, genetic linkage, and genotypic disequilibrium for nine microsatellite loci in Cariniana estrellensis (Raddi) Kuntze (Lecythidaceae)
Cariniana estrellensis is one of the largest trees found in Brazilian tropical forests. The species is typical of advanced stages of succession, characteristic of climax forests, and essential in genetic conservation and ...
