Abstract In a previous article (Barghini, 2020), it was shown that the amylolytic fermentation of carbohydrates to produce alcoholic beverages was widespread from Guianas to the upper Amazon, in Venezuela and Colombia, and reached the Misquitos, Central America. However, of the 43 reports studied, only one referred to the right side of the Amazon R...

Corn is probably the most manipulated and the most studied plant, but it is still the most enigmatic among cultivated plants. Although it is the most productive grain field crop, it is the least used directly in human alimentation. In many countries that use this crop as staple food, the protein disequilibria within the grain generated nutritional...

In South America’s lowlands, it was believed that fermentation processes for amylaceous substances were performed only with the inoculation of salivary amylase in the mash. In 2004, Henkel identified a unique fermentation process that was not previously known in the Americas: fermentation performed with the inoculation of an amylolytic mold, Rhizop...

Resumo: Tradicionalmente, as bebidas fermentadas da América do Sul são classificadas entre os narcóticos e os intoxicantes. Revisando os textos dos primeiros cronistas e recentes estudos antropológicos, é possível mostrar que as bebidas fermentadas eram fundamentalmente alimentos líquidos, ricos em elementos minerais, em pré-bióticos e pró-bióticos...

Light pollution on ecosystems is a growing concern, and knowledge about the effects of outdoor lighting on organisms is crucial to understand and mitigate impacts. Here we build up on a previous study to characterize the diversity of all beetles attracted to different commonly used streetlight set ups. We find that lights attract beetles from a bro...

Light pollution due to exterior lighting is a rising concern. While glare, light trespass and general light pollution have been well described, there are few reported studies on the impact of light pollution on insects. By studying insect behavior in relation to artificial lighting, we suggest that control of the UV component of artificial lighting...

Traditionally, epidemiologists have considered electrification to be a positive factor. In fact, electrification and plumbing are typical initiatives that represent the integration of an isolated population into modern society, ensuring the control of pathogens and promoting public health. Nonetheless, electrification is always accompanied by night...

O milho, provavelmente a planta domesticada mais alterada e mais estudada pelo homem, permanece também como a mais misteriosa. Embora apresente a maior produtividade entre as culturas de grãos, ela é hoje a menos utilizada diretamente na alimentação humana. O desequilíbrio protéico do grão levou, em muitos países que utilizaram esse produto como ba...
