Abstract: Nest concealment by vegetation is considered an important factor affecting predation rates for many passerines and, therefore, is frequently measured in studies examining nest predation. However, the time when concealment measurements are made may affect the results of such studies, particularly in highly seasonal ecosystems where characteristics of the vegetation later in the breeding period may differ considerably from those at the time of nest-site selection. We used artificial nests baited with quail (Coturnix sp.) eggs in a highly seasonal tropical dry forest in Jalisco, western Mexico, to test the effects of seasonal change in concealment on nest predation. We placed 40 open-cup, artificial nests in shrubs at the end of the dry season and again at the beginning of the rainy season in 2007, and monitored the fate of the nests and the degree of concealment by vegetation during both periods. Nest concealment was significantly greater during the wet season than during the dry season. The percentage of nests predated was marginally higher during the dry (100%) than the wet (72.5%) season, and daily nest survival was lower during the dry than the wet season. Our results suggest that, in highly seasonal environments such as tropical dry forests, delayed measurement of nest concealment after nest completion rather than during nesting may constitute a significant source of error.

Samples of 0.75 mm thickness were obtained in ribbon geometry by single screw extrusion. Mechanical degradation was determined by stress-strain tests. Gel permeation chromatography measurements established changes towards lower polymer molecular weights. Scanning electron microscopy examination showed the presence of microorganisms in the polymer samples, as well as changes in polymer morphology in areas near holes produced in samples. Results demonstrate the utility of concentrated activated sludge in polymer degradation and the effectiveness of starch inclusion as a filler to accelerate the structural molecular changes.",,,,,,,,,,"http://www.scopus.com/inward/record.url?eid=2-s2.0-0032058007&partnerID=40&md5=7db8c723358a7cb9a3355bd3372f7075

Pereira-Suarez, A.L.",,"2010",,"Background: The Cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen (CTLA-4) is one of the major susceptibility genes associated with autoimmune diseases. Susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is determined by both environmental and genetic factors. The genetic contribution approaches 50-60%. The association between RA with the +. 49A>G CTLA-4 polymorphism in the Mexican population was investigated. Methods: The polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment was used to amplify the +. 49A>G CTLA-4 polymorphism in RA patients and healthy subjects (HS). Results: We analyzed the association between the +. 49A>G CTLA-4 polymorphism and RA. The G allele frequency was higher in RA patients than HS (46.8 vs 37.7%, OR=1.45, p=0.01). RA patients carrying the A/G genotype were significantly more likely to be positive to CRP and RF. There was no evidence of an association between SNP genotypes and the clinical characteristics of rheumatoid arthritis. Conclusions: The +. 49A>G CTLA-4 polymorphism is a genetic marker of susceptibility for RA in western Mexican population. " 2010 Elsevier B.V.
