  • The role of habitat selection in the maintenance of species integrity in natural hybrid zones, AP.BTA.R

    Abstract

    Studies on natural hybrid zones are essential for understanding the process of speciation. The gradual accumulation of reproductive incompatibilities tends to intensify the differences between closely related lineages, and multiple barriers can act in concert keeping the integrity of close related species. There are cases where the cohesion of species is maintained even in the presence ...

  • Biodiversity of marine algae and metabolites of economical impact, AP.BTA.TEM

    Abstract

    Marine algae have to develop defense strategies, in order to survive in a competitive environment, that result in a tremendous diversity of compounds from different metabolic pathways. Recent trends in drug research from natural sources have shown that algae are promising organisms to furnish novel biochemically active compounds. The aim of this project is to study the compounds biosynt...

  • Phytochemistry study and evaluation of the schistosomicidal, cytotoxicity and leishmanicidal activities from Cerrado plants, AP.BTA.R

    Abstract

    This project intends to continue the bioassay-guide chemistry study of plant species that occur in areas of São Paulo State Cerrado, but with potential use as leishmanicidal, schistosomicidal, and cytotoxic. This study began in 2009 with the regular grant project entitled "Phytochemical study and evaluation of mutagenicity, antimutagenicity and cyclooxygenase inhibitory activity of Styr...
