São apresentados fundamentos teóricos que permitem a interpretação do risco de inundações. São usadas imagens de diferentes locais para mostrar as consequências do risco de enchente face ao leito normal de um rio ou linha de água. A interpretação da física envolvida na interpretação dos fenómenos físicos parece ser uma valiosa contribuição para se...

... EPNs are insect parasites and establish a symbiotic relationship with bacteria generally of the genres Xenorhabdus and Photorhabdus that cause insect pathogenicity (ALMENARA et al., 2011). Upon penetrating inside the insect hemocele, the EPN releases bacterial cells into the hemolymph and produce toxins capable of killing the host within 48 h (BATHON, 1996;VOSS et al., 2009). ...
... EPN feeds occur through the nutrients released in the digestion of host tissues and the bacteria themselves that proliferate in the host's cadaver (BATHON, 1996). When there are no more nutrients, the EPN looks for new hosts (ALMENARA et al., 2011). These biological control agents stand out for the potential of persistence in the soil for a certain period of time, which ensures control over the pests days after its application to the soil (EBSSA; KOPPENHÖFER, 2011). ...

The black cutworm Agrotis ipsilon (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) is a polyphagous pest that attacks more than one hundred types of crops. The habit of being buried or underneath the cultural remains may help contact with entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs), which are natural enemies of insects. The objective of this study was to evaluate the persistence of the pathogenicity of Steinernema carpocapsae and S. feltiae (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) applied to the soil against A. ipsilon larvae. The EPNs were applied to vases containing soil and larvae of A. ipsilon were introduced into the vases in five periods (0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 days after treatment). The two species of EPNs caused pathogenicity in all evaluated periods. The mortality rate was over 92% in all treatments and periods evaluated. Based on the results, it is possible to indicate applications NEPs every eight days for larvae population reduction of A. ipsilon.
