    ABSTRACT: Pinus radiata barks obtained from tress of different ages, as subproduct of pulp and paper (trees less than 10 years) and sawmill (trees between 20 to 25 years) industries, were used to produce extracts containing phenolic compounds. A factorial design 2 3 was used to evaluate the influence of the variables temperature (25 – 35 ºC), solvent type (acetone -ethanol) and extraction time (1-12 h). The extracts were compared in their extraction yield (%), total phenols (by FolinCiocalteau), and radical scavenging activity (by DPPH). The extract obtained from old trunks presented a higher extraction yield than from young trees. The highest yield value was 2.56%, which was obtained using acetone as solvent for 12 h and 35°C. The highest concentration of phenol (5.84±0.18 g CE g extract -1), and scavenging activity (IP=86.1±4.4%) were also obtained for this type of extract. The extraction duration was the variable that most influenced the parameters studied. The bark's radical scavenging power was greater than BHT (40%) and slightly lower than ascorbic acid (92%), common commercial antioxidants.

    ABSTRACT: This work shows an easy and fast electrochemical method for Levetiracetam (LEV) determination, which is a novel antiepileptic. Most of the methods used up to now for its determination required a pre-treatment of the sample. It is shown here that the developed Peroxidase based biosensors avoid this kind of drawbacks. Screen-printed carbon electrodes have been used as transducers for the Peroxidase immobilization by pyrrole electropolymerization. Experimental variables that can affect LEV chronoamperometric response, such as hydrogen peroxide concentration, pH and applied potential, have been optimized in order to perform a selective LEV determination. Under these conditions, the performance of the biosensors has been tested. The residual standard deviation (RSD) of the slopes of different calibration curves was 9.77% (n=4 and alpha=0.05) for the reproducibility and 7.73% (n=4 and alpha=0.05) in the case of the repeatability. An average limit of detection of 9.81x10(-6) M (alpha=beta=0.05) was obtained. The biosensors have been finally applied to the determination of LEV in complex matrices, such as pharmaceutical drugs and spiked human plasma samples, yielding successful results.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract Population dynamics in the South American muroid rodent Calomys venustus are described from a 14-year continuous data series, using the auto-regressive integrated moving average (arima) model. Population responses to experimental food addition were analysed in two experimental areas, over two periods, using intervention analysis. There was no consistent evidence that food quantity leads to peaks in population density. Significant increases were related to densities of transients and juvenile individuals.
