Fernando Carlos Pagnocca in research grants and scholarships supported by FAPESP.
The National Institutes of Science and Technology Program (INCT), which was launched in July 2008 by the Ministry of Science and Technology - CNPq, with the collaboration of FAPESP, recruited scientists to work in networks in research areas that are strategic to the sustainable development of the country. Thus, the UFSCar aggregated in networks the best research groups in chemical ecolo...
The world population has continually increasing which implies in a continuous need of increasing production of food, juices, biofuels for human survival and, as the Brazil is a country with continental dimension and has suitable climate for numerous agricultural practices, it can become the largest producer of these inputs. Nowadays, the agribusiness in Brazil represents 25% of Gross ...
Black fungi, also called dematiaceous, form a heterogenic group characterized by a dark pigmentation due to the presence of Dihydroxynaphthalene (DHN) melanin in their micelial wall, which protects them from environmental stress conditions, such as lack of nutrients and water, toxic substances and acid pH.These microorganisms are opportunistic pathogens of humans, and chromoblastomycosi...
Leaf-cutting ants (Atta and Acromyrmex) make up the largest group among the derived fungus-growing ants, being considered the most important herbivores in the Neotropics. They live in an obligatory mutualism with the fungus Leucoagaricus gongylophorus (Basidiomycota: Agaricales), providing fresh plant parts as substrate for it, which is their main food source. In turn, ants promote the ...
The obligatory mutualism of Attini ants with their cultivated fungus is an example of symbiosis shaped by millions years of coevolution. Attini ants cultivate basidiomycetes fungi (Basidiomycota; Agaricales: Lepiotaceae e Pterulaceae) as enzymes and food source in specialized gardens. Acromyrmex and Atta genera (Attini tribe) are commonly known as leaf-cutting ants, because they forage ...
