(University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez Campus Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
Evidence of selection on phenotypic plasticity and cost of plasticity in response to host-feeding sources in the major Chagas disease vector Triatoma infestans
(Elsevier Science, 2015-12)
Phenotypic plasticity is the ability of a genotype to display alternative phenotypes in different environments. Understanding how plasticity evolves and the factors that favor and constrain its evolution have attracted ...
Testing the effects of heterozygosity on growth rate plasticity in the seaweed Gracilaria chilensis (Rhodophyta)
Heterozygosity has been positively associated with fitness and population survival. However, the relationship between heterozygosity and adaptive phenotypic plasticity (i.e., plasticity which results in fitness homeostasis ...
Polychlorinated biphenyls and organochlorine pesticides in plastics ingested by seabirds
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2010)
The occurrence of plastic objects in the digestive tract was assessed in eight species of Procellariiformes collected in southern Brazil and the occurrence of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and organochlorine pesticides ...
Reflecting on hypertrophic plastic waste: concerns and levers
(Universidade Tecnológica Federal do Paraná (UTFPR), 2022)
Polímeros biodegradáveis - uma solução parcial para diminuir a quantidade dos resíduos plásticos
(Sociedade Brasileira de Química, 2006-07-01)
The large use of plastics has generated a waste deposit problem. Today plastic wastes represent 20% in volume of the total waste in the municipal landfills. To solve the disposal problem of plastics methods have been ...
A discussion on volume change in the plastic phase
(JOHN WILEY & SONS LTD, 2008)
This technical note discusses the possibility of using a more simplified scheme to estimate the plastic multiplier when some material shows volume changes, e.g. soil, balsa wood foam and other similar materials. Two ...

Rethinking and optimising plastic waste management under COVID-19 pandemic: Policy solutions based on redesign and reduction of single-use plastics and personal protective equipment
Plastics have been on top of the political agenda in Europe and across the world to reduce plastic leakage and pollution. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has severely disrupted plastic reduction policies at the regional and ...
Terrestrial ecologists should stop ignoring plastic pollution in the Anthropocene time
The massive production of plastic started in mid 20th century. Today, only 60 years later and despite its obvious benefits, plastic pollution is ubiquitous, influencing all global environments and the planet's biota, ...
