  • Marine ichthyofauna from Oaxaca, Mexico: systematic checklist and
           zoogeographic affinities

    • Authors: Luis Fernando Del Moral-Flores, Vicente Anislado-Tolentino, Emilio Martínez-Ramírez, Gerardo Pérez-Ponce de León, Emmanuel Ramírez-Antonio, Gabriela González-Medina
      Abstract: We present an updated checklist of the marine fish from of Oaxaca, southern Pacific coast, Mexico, which is composed of 487 species included in two classes, 36 orders, 108 families, and 284 genera. Three species are new records for Mexican Pacific sout coast: Echinorhinus cookei, Heterodontus mexicanus and Masturus lanceolatus. Records of Urotrygon cimar and Rhinobatus prahli confirm presence of these species in Mexico. Families with the higher specific richness were: Sciaenidae (30), Carangidae (28) and Haemulidae (24). Biogeographically, fish species showed a higher affinity to Panamanian province (78.4%), followed by Sinuscalifornian (67.8%), Galapagos (28.5%), San Diego (35.7%) and Peru-Chilean (11.7%) provinces.

  • Partial characterization of biodegradable film made with banana starch and
           milk protein serum

    • Authors: Heidi Palma-Rodríguez, Rene Salgado-Delgado, Delia Páramo-Calderón, Apolonio Vargas-Torres, Martín Meza-Nieto
      Abstract: Starch plantain (StP) and serum proteins (SPr) of milk (α-LA, β-and β-LGB LGA) were mixed to produce biofilm by casting method. Solubility in StP/SPr biofilm (32.42%) was higher than biofilm control made with StP (7.2%). Addition of SPr in biofilm, improved mechanical properties, increasing values such as Young's modulus and maximum stress at break, inverse pattern was observed in elongation at break. StP/α-LA biofilms showed a higher increase in melting temperature than that observed in StP/β-LGA and StP/β-LGB. Temperature stability (ΔH) in biofilms was improved by addition of StP. Spectrophotometry studies showed greater length band at 3500 cm–1 in films StP/SPr indicating an increase in -OH groups, which is related to the higher solubility in these biofilms.

  • Oregano oil use in broiler diet increases accumulation of carvacrol and
           thymol in breast meat

    • Authors: Fidel Avila Ramos, Arturo Pro Martínez, Eliseo Sosa Montes, Carlos Narciso Gaytán, Aleida Selene Hernández Cázarez, Juan Cibrián Tovar, Jaime Gallegos Sánchez, José del Carmen Rodríguez Castillo
      Abstract: Oregano oil is an aromatic used in poultry industry as a natural additive. This research was designed to quantify thymol and carvacrol in chicken breast meat. In total, 320 Broilers were fed on basal corn soybean meal diet contained crude soybean oil (CSO) or acidulated soybean oil (ASO) as a resource of energy with or without oregano oil (OO). Identification and measurement of compounds in meat was performed by gas chromatography (GC) and mass spectrometry (MS). Data obtained were transformed and analyzed parametrically, a significant increase of thymol and carvacrol was found in chicken breast meat supplemented with oregano oil (p < 0.05). Breast meat of broilers fed with oregano oil and CSO accumulated more thymol and carvacrol: 333% and 366%, respectively. Breast meat of broilers fed with oregano oil and ASO accumulated thymol, but more carvacrol: 552% and 648% respectively, compared with control. In conclusion, oregano oil supplementation in diet increased deposition of thymol and carvacrol in broiler meat.

  • Linear regression in the evaluation of engineering variables of
           agricultural irrigation and field corn

    • Authors: Jose Alfredo Montemayor Trejo, Juan Munguía López, Miguel Ángel Segura Castruita, Pablo Yescas Coronado, Jorge Arnaldo Orozco Vidal, José Luis Woo Reza
      Abstract: The statistical tool linear regression was used to evaluate two case studies of field corn with the purpose of understanding the phenomena that both trials present. The first case study established the relationship between the water depth variables (evaporation and water applied) under open air conditions and as a function of time; in the second, the production of dry mass (MS) was correlated with the leaf area index (IAF) in field corn, with and without plastic mulch over time. The research was undertaken between 2006 and 2013 at the Comarca Lagunera of Coahuila and Durango, Mexico, where groups of data of the evaporation variables (EV), depth of irrigation water applied (LR), MS and IAF of the field corn were used to propose linear regression type mathematical functions. The results show first and second order linear regression. The results show predictive linear equations of first and second order with R2 values greater than 0.8, which allow for the understanding and interpretation of the phenomena of water consumption and the accumulation of field corn dry material.

  • Monitoring of pesticides residues in northwestern Mexico rivers

    • Authors: José Belisario Leyva Morales, José Benigno Valdez Torres, Pedro de Jesús Bastidas Bastidas, Miguel Ángel Angulo Escalante, Juan Ignacio Sarmiento Sánchez, Alma Lorena Barraza Lobo, Claudia Olmeda Rubio, Cristóbal Chaidez Quiroz
      Abstract: In Mexico, use of river water for households, agriculture and industry has adversely affected aquatic environment through chemical and microbial contamination. The aim of this study was to determine pesticide residues levels in water of rivers from central Sinaloa State, Northwestern Mexico. In samples obtained from July 2008 to June 2009 pesticides residues detected were lindane, heptachlor, endosulfan, dicloro difenil tricloroetano (DDT), diazinon, chlorpyrifos, permethrin, methyl parathion, cyromazine, ethion, carbofenothion, lambda cyhalotrine, pyrimicarb, malathion and aldrin. None exceeded water quality ecological criteria or those established by US Environmental Protection Agency. Comparatively low concentrations and frequencies suggest that pesticide contamination derived from runoffs toward river from contaminated soil particles and not from use of pesticides in intensive agriculture of region.

  • Escenarios regionales de Cambio Climático de la Reserva de la Biósfera
           Sierra Gorda Guanajuato, México

    • Authors: Leticia Gómez Mendoza
      Abstract:  Resumen Las Áreas Naturales Protegidas representan una forma de adaptación y mitigación ante el cambio climático. Se presentan los resultados de la aplicación de un Generador Estocástico de Tiempo Meteorológico (GETM) en el Área Natural Protegida de la Reserva de la Biosfera “Sierra Gorda de Guanajuato” (RBSGGto) que se caracteriza por un deterioro ambiental. Los resultados obtenidos para el periodo de 2010-2099 mediante el GETM LARS-WG muestran un aumento en la temperatura media de entre 1 y 2°C, mientras que la precipitación aumentará hasta 3 mm. Se analizan las implicaciones hidrológicas de la cuenca con base en dichos escenarios regionalizados y se caracterizan las zonas de mayor afectación por cambio climático. Se prevé que el nivel de riesgo pueda ser minimizado para los diversos sectores de la reserva si se continúan con algunas de las actividades actuales de conservación. Sin embargo, de continuar con la infraestructura hídrica, la oferta del recurso agua puede comprometerse bajo los escenarios climáticos proyectados. Palabras clave: GETM-LARS, reducción de escala, Guanajuato, cambio climático, Sierra Gorda-Guanajuato.

  • Removal of chlorophylls present in Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni)
           extracts by activated carbon adsorption and precipitation with lime food
           grade

    • Authors: Gabriel Ríos Cortés Ríos Cortés, Dave Ramírez Aguilar, Carlos Quintín Bobadilla Reyes, Ada María Ríos Cortés, Mara Angélica Ramírez Bello, Roger Manuel Sales Chávez, Minerva Rosas Morales
      Abstract: In this study, adsorption capacity of activated carbon, and food grade calcium hydroxide (food grade lime) to remove color present in Stevia extract, was evaluated. Quantification of chlorophyll A, B and C was realized using Hansmann spectrophotometric method. Subsequently, activated carbon adsorption capacity on chlorophylls were measured followed by removal of color using lime on the same extract sample. The 10 min residence process with activated carbon in a 0.05 g per 100 ml sample, showed 43.30% of adsorbed chlorophylls. Adsorption process on activated carbon was adjusted to Langmuir model, with a maximum adsorption capacity of chlorophylls in monolayers of qmax = 6.038 gg–1 and value of constant Langmuir of b = 159.413 gml–1. After, 10 minutes residence time treatment using 10 g per 100 ml of lime on the same sample, resulted in a total of 70.30% of chlorophylls removed. Adsorption process with activated carbon was developed at 25 ºC, and adsorption isotherms were adjusted to Langmuir model.

  • Adaptation and reproducibility of a questionnaire to evaluate physical
           activity among the Comcáac (Seri) community of Sonora, Mexico

    • Authors: Marcos Lavandera-Torres, Julián Esparza-Romero
      Abstract: Physical activity questionnaire (PAQ) is the most widely used method for evaluation of physical activity (PA). The aim of this study was to adapt and evaluate reproducibility of a PAQ in Comcáac community of Sonora, Mexico. Adaptation of PAQ was conducted through interviews with key residents. Reproducibility was evaluated applying PAQ twice to 26 persons within 20 or more years old, using Spearman coefficient ρ and intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC). High correlations (p < 0.05) were found in total previous-year and previous-week recreational activities (ρ= 0.82 and ρ= 0.76, respectively). Correlations were equally high for occupational activities group related to craftwork manufacture (ρ= 0.96 and ρ= 0.74) and fishery activities (ρ= 0.93 and ρ= 0.78) for previous-year and previous-week, respectively. Adapted PAQ could be a useful tool to evaluate PA pattern in community and can be used in future research on association between PA, obesity and diabetes.

  • Correlation of COL1A2 gene polymorphisms with dental fluorosis in mexican
           children

    • Authors: Manuel de Jesús Muñoz Hernández, Jorge Alberto Burciaga Nava, Juan Carlos Cuevas Gonzalez, Graciela Zambrano Galván
      Abstract: Dental fluorosis (FD, for its achronym in spanish) is the hypomineralization of dental enamel caused by increased porosity, severity is due to an excessive intake of fluoride with a dose-response relationship during enamel development. The objective of this study was to determine correlation of rs810687 and rs411717 polymorphisms of (colageno tipo 1 alfa 2) COL1A2 gene with FD in Mexican children aged 10 to 12 years, using Dean Index to establish degree of FD and PCR-HRM for polymorphisms genotyping. We included 100 children of 10.9 ± 0.78 years; Allele and genotype frequencies found were: G = 52.5%, A = 47.5%, G/G = 27.5%, G/A = 49.8%, A/A = 22.5%, C = 63.3%, T = 36.5%, C/C = 40.3%, C/T = 46.3%, T/T = 13.3% of rs810687 and rs411717 polymorphisms respectively; with a Pearson correlation coefficient r =–0.017 (p > 0.05) with FD. Results showed that there was no correlation between FD and presence of rs810687 and rs411717 polymorphisms of the COL1A2 gene.

  • Autoestima como mediador entre Afecto positivo-negativo y resiliencia en
           niños

    • Authors: Norma Ivonne González Arratia López Fuentes, Alejandra del Carmen Domínguez Espinosa, José Luis Valdez Medina
      Abstract: El presente estudio tiene como objetivo verificar el rol mediador de la autoestima  en la relación entre el afecto positivo (AP), afecto negativo (AN) y resiliencia en niños. Se trata de un estudio transversal con una muestra de 188 niños entre 9 y 12 años de edad, aplicándose tres escalas que incluyen medición de la resiliencia, autoestima y afecto positivo-negativo. Se realizaron análisis descriptivos, de correlación producto momento de Pearson mediante los cuales se identifican asociaciones positivas y significativas entre las variables excepto el AN. Del análisis de trayectorias se comprueba que la autoestima es una variable moderadora  sobre las relaciones entre AP y resiliencia. Sin embargo, se requiere continuar identificando variables que mejor explican la resiliencia infantil.
