ANÁLISE DE PROJETOS AGRÍCOLAS DO FUNDO DISTRITAL DE DESENVOLVIMENTO EM CHIBUTO, MOÇAMBIQUE

This research examines the implementation of agricultural projects benefited from the District Development Fund (FDD), taking as if the District of Chibuto, Mozambique. Considering the characteristics of the country, the relevance of the FDD and the need to have a higher rate of payment of these projects highlights the need to study these projects, despite their increased over the years, has led to low rates compared financial resources to pay the FDD. Therefore, compromises the multiplier effect of these financial resources that should benefit more community development projects. For the ... Read More

USO DA ANTRACOLOGIA COMO INSTRUMENTO DE FISCALIZAÇÃO DO CARVÃO VEGETAL EM MOÇAMBIQUE

Moçambique possui uma grande diversidade de recursos florestais. Estes recursos afiguram-se importantes no contexto econômico, social e ambiental por apresentarem potencial para a geração de emprego, fornecimento de energia, sequestro de carbono, entre outros bens e serviços. A maior parte do combustível lenhoso provém das florestas naturais e cerca de 85% da população moçambicana depende destes combustíveis para satisfazer suas necessidades energéticas domésticas. Atualmente, tem se constatado que os carvoeiros usam espécies de alto valor comercial para a produção de carvão vegetal sem a obse... Read More

CARACTERIZACIÓN MORFOLÓGICA Y FANERÓPTICA DE LA CABRA APURIMEÑA PERUANA

209 goats over 2 years old (44 males and 165 non-pregnant females) were randomly selected from five provinces in the Apurimac region of Peru: Abancay 17-31), Andahuaylas (9-36), Chincheros (7-31), Aymaraes (5-33) and Grau (6-34). All goats were evaluated to determine the state of homogeneity or heterogeneity and to describe their morphotype according to morphological character including 14 qualitative traits, 10 quantitative traits, and 9 zoometric indexes. This information is essential to develop and propose a breed description, and subsequently a breed standard. Results indicate that the Ap... Read More

CARACTERIZACIÓN GENÉTICA DE LA POBLACIÓN DE CABRAS AUTÓCTONAS DE LA REGIÓN APURÍMAC DE PERÚ

Raising goats, in the region Apurimac from Peru, is an important source of food and income for many families. For this reason a study was conducted to characterize the genetic diversity of the local goat population. Genetic diversity was evaluated in 62 native goats from both sexes, grouped into four subpopulations: Abancay, Andahuaylas, Chincheros and Grau by means of 13 microsatellite markers. Genetic diversity of the loci was high, with an average expected heterozygosity of 0.73 and a mean number of alleles per locus of 8.23. The four subpopulations showed similar levels of genetic diversit... Read More

Toxicological Studies on Some Economic Pests

Chemical pesticides have consistently demonstrated their worth by increasing global agricultural productivity, reducing insect-borne and reducing endemic diseases. Current and upcoming global conditions may lead to increase amount of used pesticides for both agriculture and public health. Since insecticides are the control agents of choice for use in agricultural and residential environments. Pyrethroid insecticides replaced other groups of insecticides; because of their selective toxicity against mammals, their rapid degradation in the environment, and the problem of resistance development. ...
