  • Phenotypic correlations between milk production and conformation traits in
           goats

    • Authors: Mauricio Valencia Posadas, José Eleazar Barboza-Corona, César Andrés Ángel-Sahagún, Abner Josué Gutiérrez-Chávez, Oscar Alejandro Martínez-Jaime, Hugo Horacio Montaldo
      Abstract: In this work, we use the records from 643 goats in order to evaluate the phenotypic relationships between conformation traits and milk production in goats. Correlations were estimated using data on goats which included fifteen conformation traits and first lactation milk yield adjusted for age, calving month and 305 milking days (MY1). We also compared the average scores for type traits on the goats under study with those on a sample of goats from the United States of America (USA). Correlations between conformation traits and MY1 were estimated and an analysis was performed to evaluate the nonlinear relationships between them. The highest correlations were found between milk production and udder depth (–0.22), stature (0.18) and rear udder side view (0.12) (p < 0.05), non-linear (cubic) effects for stature and strength being significant (p < 0.05). American goats had a better overall conformation than the Mexican ones but results indicated that goats with better body conformation were not the best for milk production.

  • Arsenic tolerance in bacterial cultures isolated from metal contaminated
           soil

    • Authors: Azucena Lucero Alaniz-Andrade, Consuelo Letechipía de León, Rosa María Ramírez-Santoyo, Jesús Guzmán-Moreno, Luz Elena Vidales-Rodríguez
      Abstract: Several centuries of uninterrupted mining activities in Zacatecas, Mexico becomes a problem of soil pollution with toxic metals and metalloids as the arsenic. In this study, the arsenic-tolerance of ten bacterial isolates from a metal contaminated site were analyzed and high tolerance was observed in both solid (40 - 300 mM of sodium arseniate and 4 - 25 mM of sodium arsenite) and liquid media (7.2 and 11.3 mM arsenite). The arsenic tolerant isolates were identified by biochemical and 16S rRNA-encoding gene amplification analysis as members of the Bacillus, Micrococcus and Acinetobacter genus. A study of resistance to antibiotics revealed a high prevalence of resistance to beta-lactams and moderate prevalence to nitrofurantoin, vancomycin and ceftriaxone suggesting that antibiotic multiresistance of this isolates is probably related to arsenic tolerance throughout a plasmid or chromosomally encoded resistance mechanism.

  • The effect of intragastric and ad libitum administration of red wines
           (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon/Nebbiolo)
           and alcohol in the cyto/genotoxicity evaluated in the peripheral blood of
           CD-1 mice

    • Authors: Maria del Carmen García-Rodríguez, Gabriela Guerrero-Palomo, Mario Altamirano-Lozano
      Abstract: We evaluated the cyto/genotoxicity in peripheral blood of CD-1 mice exposed to different varieties of red wine Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon/Nebbiolo. Groups of five CD-1 mice were treated with: a) vehicle only; b) red wine or ethanol ad libitum (diluted 75% and 10%, respectively); c) undiluted red wine or ethanol diluted to 13.5% (two daily doses-0.25 ml via intragastric [i.g.]). The cyto/genotoxicity was evaluated by micronucleus (MN) assay, and by the relationship between polychromatic/monochromatic erythrocytes at 0 h, 24 h, 48 h and 72 h. Significant but slight increases of MN were observed only in the treatments i.g. of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and ethanol. However, the administration ad libitum of red wines tended to decrease the MN. Our findings suggest that the MN could be related with the bioavailability, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacokinetics of ethanol and the antioxidants of red wine. No cytotoxic effects were observed.

  • Potential distribution of Geoduck clam Panopea globosa of the Gulf of
           California in a climate change Model

    • Authors: Eugenio Alberto Aragon-Noriega, Sergio Gustavo Castillo-Vargasmachuca, Jesús T. Ponce-Palafox, Rolando Cruz-Vásquez, Guillermo Rodríguez-Domínguez, Raúl Pérez-González
      Abstract: Climate change has broken the natural equilibrium and has modified the state of health of different commercial species such as the geoduck clam. Therefore, the objective of the present study was to predict the distribution of the geoduck clam Panopea globosa of the Gulf of California to the year 2050 using a climate change model. We applied the maximum entropy model (MaxEnt), which considered 12 environmental variables that affect thermal, chemical, and biological distribution. The MaxEnt model predicted the potential habitat suitable for P. globosa with high success rates (Area Under the Curve [AUC] = 0.995). The most favorable habitat of P. globosa is located of Guaymas, Sonora, mainly due to the upwelling of nutrients that promotes the production of chlorophyll-a. In the year 2050, MaxEnt forecasted southward reduction towards the south coast of Sonora, of Santa Rosalía and San Marcos Island in Baja California Sur the presence probability decreased from 0.70 to 0.04. Current clam harvesting sites were observed to have been altered by the social and economic conditions of coastal communities. We conclude that this study is important for fisheries resource management purposes because the fisheries harvesting sites could be affected by climate change.

  • Identification and assessment of environmental impacts in Campus
           University City, Autonomous University of the State of Mexico, Cerro of
           Coatepec, Toluca Mexico

    • Authors: José Isabel Juan Pérez
      Abstract: This article is the result of a research project. The objective was to identify and assessment the environmental impacts of the geographical space Campus University City of the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico, to know and analyze the environmental conditions in which performed the university activities. By Checklist they were identified 66 environmental impacts on the three stages of the project. With Qualitative Matrix Leopold they were determined 200 environmental impacts, of which 24 are significant beneficial impacts related to the activities educational process, research, dissemination, administration, sports and cultural events; 121 are significant adverse impacts, temporary and mitigated. The results show that since 1962, the Cerro of Coatepec and its components have shown positive and negative impacts. A challenge for the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico is to promote the participation of university people and implement environmental management system sustainable for the mitigation and compensation of impacts.

  • Evaluation of waste of the cheese industry for the production of 2-phenyl
           ethanol

    • Authors: Laura Conde-Báez, J. Castro-Rosas, J. R. Villagómez-Ibarra, J. B. Páez-Lerma, C. Gómez-Aldapa
      Abstract: The cheese industries generate two types of whey, sweet (SW) and acid (AW). Few studies have used both types of whey to produce 2-fenilethanol (2-FE), as well as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to determine the percentage of α-β in each type of whey. We assessed the production of 2-phenyl ethanol (2-FE) by Kluyveromyces marxianus using as SW and AW as substrates. Both types of whey were treated at pH 4.8 and pasteurized at 63 °C for 30 min with an initial inoculum of K. marxianus (1×106  CFU/mL). The identification and quantification of 2-PHE was performed by gas chromatography (GC). We then determined the (α-β) lactose by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). K. marxianus was capable of producing 2-FE in the two types of whey in obtaining maximum concentrations of 0.44 g/L and 0.32 g/L, respectively. For SW, we found a concentration of β-lactose 82.35%.

  • On the ontological principles in the poetological difference by
           Horst-Jürgen Gerigk

    • Authors: Gerardo Argüelles Fernández
      Abstract: Horst-Jürgen Gerigk centers on the task of interpreting the peculiarity of the literary work with no psycho-biographical prejudices concerning the author as an individual and free of a tropological attitude, based on Heideggers’s existential concept of care (Sorge). Herein, Gerigk’s concept of poetological difference as a methodological paradigm for the interpretation of literary work is understood through an internal-external fictional description of a world already comprehended that recovers its vitality at the moment of reading.

  • The past and present of Japanese immigration to Mexico: towards a future
           agenda for the study of the Japanese immigrant community in Guanajuato

    • Authors: Ana Vila Freyer
      Abstract: Since 2011, Guanajuato has become Mexico’s main destination of immigrants of Japanese origin, leading to a North-South migration phenomenon, a novelty in a state that used to be seen as a traditional expeller of the population. Guanajuato has also been the main attractor for Japanese investment, especially in the automotive sector. Japanese capital has instigated an intense process of formation of specific community formation in the State, particularly of corporate expatriates from automotive corporations, who are based in the main cities in Guanajuato. From the few studies of a similar phenomenon in Monterrey and Guadalajara, this document highlights the importance of starting a research agenda to follow the creation of these new communities in the State.

  • Migration and sociocultural transformation: landscape as a model for
           mobility

    • Authors: Miriam Reyes Tovar, Brigitte Lamy
      Abstract: Modern society is characterized by increasing flows of both people and groups, who transport their cultures from one place to another. Landscapes, or the spatial element of human geography, demarcates the emotional environment and provides evidence for social transformations. The aim of this paper is to explain the influence of cultural dynamics on the sense of belonging in expatriate communities, as well as its consequences on the construction and meaning of ways of seeing, thinking and feeling about landscapes by migrants. Finally, the discussion supports the importance of using landscape as a tangible and non-tangible model for cultural transformation caused by mobility. Therefore, landscapes may be considered as a unit of spatial analysis for understanding the cultural implications of migration.

  • Young people who stay behind: an exploration on the perceptions and sense
           of well-being of university students on the phenomenon of migration
           Michoacan-USA, results of a psycho-educational intervention in
           universities

    • Authors: Diana Tamara Martínez Ruíz, María Elena Rivera Heredia
      Abstract: Herein, we discuss the most relevant results of our analysis of the discursive manifestations of the perceptions and imaginations of the phenomenon of migration (Michoacan-USA) and the sense of well-being that this entails. The results are produced based on two discussion groups involving university students of the Faculty of Psychology, of the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo, through a psycho-educational intervention. The majority of participants (93%) are close relatives of migrants (child, brother, grandson, niece/nephew). We conducted the analysis of their discursive manifestations from two perspectives. The first that these young people are a population that “stayed behind in the place of origin”. The second focusses on the analysis of the discourses of the students based on categories constructed from their psychological resources, which, according to the perspectives of the participating young people, in some cases strengthen, and in other cases deteriorate in the face of migration. We conclude with an analysis of the sense of well-being as a factor that determines migration in this population.
