Las especies introducidas, o sea, que no son nativas, afectan especies propias de la región. Este es el caso del tulipán africano, árbol introducido en América que causa la muerte de nuestras amadas y nativas abejas angelitas. Un árbol perteneciente a la familia Bignoniaceae conocido popularmente como tulipán africano, llama del bosque, amapola y...

Millipedes are organisms of the edaphic fauna and have been used as bioindicators for the evaluation of pollutants in the environment, as they are in constant contact with the soil. This study used the millipede Rhinocricus padbergi as surrogate to evaluate the toxicity of two metallic-insecticides that has been developed for leaf-cutting ants mana...

Large amounts of residues generated by agricultural, urban and industrial activities are dumped daily on the soil. This practice deserves special attention because it causes serious environmental problems. This study evaluated the toxic potential of the sugarcane vinasse, a by-product of the sugar-alcohol industry, and the biosolid, a residue produ...
Article

In Brazil vinasse, a main sugarcane distillery residue, stands out because every liter of alcohol generates 10–15 L of vinasse as waste. An alternative for the disposal of this waste is the fertirrigation of the sugarcane culture itself. However, the high amount released can saturate the soil and through leaching/percolation contaminate water resou...

Liver is very sensitive to environmental contaminants such as pesticides, it being the first target of toxicity of a substance. The objective of this study was to investigate the possible effects of the insecticide imidacloprid (IMI) on the liver of Oreochromis niloticus according concentrations used for growing sugarcane. A semi-quantitative analy...

The search for fuels to replace petroleum consumption has caused an increase in the production of biofuels worldwide. The ethanol, which comes from sugarcane, is an energy resource with low polluting potential, but its production generates other environmental problems. On average, 10 to 15 liters of vinasse are generated while preparing each liter...

Currently, several organisms are used as bioindicators. Among them, the Tradescantia pallida stands out for being a plant that easily adapts to any environment and develops through-out the whole year. Furthermore, its use has excelled due to ethical aspects. Due to environmental awareness by governments and society, new chemicals have been develope...

Given water scarcity and climate change caused by human activities, the degradation of water resources, such as lentic habitats, is currently a major concern worldwide because of the direct or indirect damage it can cause to the health and survival of exposed organisms. One contributing factor to water quality alteration is the discharge of effluen...

The indiscriminate use of pesticides has become a serious environmental concern. Insecticide imidacloprid (IMI) is the second most widely used pesticides worldwide. In 2010, 1.934 tons of IMI were sold in Brazil, mostly to be used in sugarcane crops. Several studies have detected its presence in the aquatic environment constituting a risk to non-ta...

El ensayo de electroforesis alcalina de células individuales embebidas en microgel, más conocido como Ensayo Cometa (EC), ha logrado ubicarse en una posición privilegiada dentro de los ensayos utilizados para evaluar la respuesta de las células frente a agentes genotóxicos, estreses bióticos y abióticos que conducen a daño al ADN. Diferentes versio...

Context: Duroia macrophylla (Rubiaceae) is endemic from the Amazon Rainforest. Aims: To perform phytochemical profile of Duroia macrophylla extracts and to evaluate them as antioxidant, insecticidal and cytotoxic. Methods: Dichloromethane and methanol extracts of leaves and branches (collected three times) were subjected to phytochemical screening...

The indiscriminate use of pesticides has become a serious environmental concern. Of them, imidacloprid (IMI) is one of the most widely used worldwide. In 2010 in Brazil, 1.934tonnes of IMI were sold and mainly used for sugarcane crops. Several studies have examined the toxicity of IMI as well as its possible ecological effects. However, few studies...
