  • The use of plastic mulch and foliar application of iron on habanero pepper
           (Capsicum chinense Jacq.) growing on shade net infected with virus

    • Authors: Ariana Isabel Torres-Bojorques, Antonio Morales-Maza, Fidel Núñez-Ramirez, Lourdes Cervantes-Díaz
      Pages: 3 - 10
      Abstract: One of the main constraints in the production of habanero chili pepper is the infection by virus. The objective of this research was to evaluate the reduction of viral visual symptoms (chlorosis), growth and fruit yield, by effect of foliar application of iron and plastic mulch in habanero chili pepper. Two rates of foliar iron, two varieties of habanero chili pepper (infected and not infected with virus) and four colors of plastic mulch were evaluated. Results showed that plastic mulching significantly modifies the SPAD index at the beginning and end of the study. Foliar application of iron adversely affects the concentration of nitrates. Growth was modified by the use of plastic mulch and the variety of habanero chili pepper. The presence of virus on habanero variety no conditioned the crop yield. In conclusion, the use of silver plastic mulch with Sun Valley variety increases the yield due to the set up the fruit number.

  • The Mexican giant cardon (Pachycereus pringlei) interactions with wildlife
           on the Baja California peninsula, Mexico

    • Authors: Mariana Delgado-Fernández, Jonathan Gabriel Escobar Flores, Kim Franklin
      Pages: 11 - 18
      Abstract: The Mexican giant cardon (Pachycereus pringlei (S.Watson) Britton & Rose) is an endemic species of the Sonoran Desert; these immense cacti serve as reservoirs of water and nutrients and provide food and shelter for a large diversity of wildlife. The objectives of the study were to identify the number of species that currently interact with cardonsand determine how they take advantage of the cactus. Camera traps were placed near cardon flowers and fruits. Animal species engaged in interactions with the plant were photographed  and a literature review was also undertaken to enhance the interactions database. 61 species that interact with cardons were found, 25 of which had not previously been reported. 83 total interactions were recorded , 45% of which occurred in the flowering and fruiting season. This large number of interactions suggests that the Mexican giant cardon is a keystone species for the Sonoran Desert and should be considered for land management and conservation planning within this region.

  • A sustainable approach to tilapia aquaculture

    • Authors: Ricardo Ornelas-Luna, Bernabé Aguilar-Palomino, Arnulfo Hernández-Díaz, José Ángel Hinojosa-Larios, Daniel Enrique Godínez-Siordia
      Pages: 19 - 25
      Abstract: Tilapia (Oreochromis spp.) aquaculture is often developed in controlled or extensive systems, which present a diversity of problems whose causes need to be determined to offer solutions oriented to the sustainable development of this activity. The main problems in the majority of farms are reduced growth and high mortality, associated to inadequate management. In this article a tilapia recirculation aquaculture system, with low environmental impact and high productivity, is proposed. The use of medicinal plants and probiotics are suggested as a preventive or corrective measure against pathologies, as well as floating treatment wetlands and sludge digesters, as an alternative to avoid environmental impact. Furthermore, this could generate additional profit in the system. In general, in terms of the proposed Remedial Action Scheme (RAS), this is an environmentally friendly project achieving high productivity.

  • Effect of physical pretreatment of wheat straw on the biomass yield and
           the production of a cellulolytically active extract employing Pseudomonas

    • Authors: Eduardo Bazán Lugo, Cristian Gilberto Álvarez Cárdenas, Alfonso Totosaus Sáchez
      Pages: 26 - 33
      Abstract: Agroindustral residues represents an alternative source for obtaining fermentable products, such as glucose, with higher energy value. Therefore, in this work the isolation of a microorganism with cellulolytic capacity is carried out. A fermentation test of wheat straw with physical pretreatments (grinding), and the combination of a chemical pretreatment —using a saturated solution of Ca(OH)2— with a physical one, combining three particle sizes for the wheat straw were proposed. The results showed that the combination of particle size (141 µm ~ 250 µm) with the chemical pretreatment  had a positive effect on biological consumption-degradation of 79.5% and a biomass/substrate yield of 0.49 g/g was observed. Both particle size and alkaline treatment had no significant effect on the cellulolytic activity of the obtained extract (p > 0.05).

  • Micropropagation of chiltepín (Capsicum annuum L. cv.
           'glabriusculum') by applying a pectic oligosaccharide

    • Authors: Humberto Izquierdo Oviedo, Lilia Alcaraz Meléndez, Margarito Rodríguez-Álvarez
      Pages: 34 - 43
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a pectic oligogalacturonide (PectiMorf®) in the micropropagation of chiltepin (Capsicum annuum L. cv. 'glabriusculum') and its adaptation to transplant. Multiple shoots were obtained by in vitro culture of nodal segments of 30-day-old plantlets from chiltepin, using a MS medium supplemented with BAP 10-5 M. The highest number of shoots, measuring fresh and dry mass per explant, was obtained in MS medium enriched with Pectimorf (1 mg.L1). At the time of lifting and reseting plantlets with Pectimorf (1 mg.L-1-10 mg.L1) in vitro to ex vitro, the survival rate was of 100%, which was maintained thereafter, obtaining a greater number and length of roots, as well as vigor, than in control plants and those treated with BAP. Also, plants obtained with these oligosaccharides generally showed higher content in chlorophyll α and β, and phaeopigments. The best results were achieved in plantlets treated with Pectimorf (10 mg.L-1).

  • Evaluation of antagonist capacity of bacillales strains isolated from
           vermicompost leachate on phytopatogenic fungi

    • Authors: Bruce Manuel Morales-Barrón, Francisco J. Vázquez-González, Raquel González-Fernández, Antonio De La Mora-Covarrubias, Miroslava Quiñonez-Martínez, Ángel Gabriel Díaz-Sánchez, Alejandro Martínez-Martínez, Virginia Nevárez-Moorillón, José Valero-Galván
      Pages: 44 - 54
      Abstract: The Bacillales order has been reported to exhibit an antagonistic activity toward some phytopathogens. In addition, several studies have mentioned the presence of some species of this order in the vermicompost leachate. In the present study , the antagonistic effect of five Bacillales strains on the mycelial growth of Phytophthora capsici, Fusarium oxysporum, Alternaria solani and Rhizopus sp. was evaluated. Five bacterial strains were isolated from vermicompost leachate and identified by their morphological and biochemical characteristics. Subsequently these strains and a standard Bacillus subtilis strain were used to observe the competition against four fungi strains by determining the percentage inhibition of mycelial growth. Significant differences in percentage inhibition were founded among strains. The greatest antagonistic capacity was observed in Bacillus licheniformis and B. badius. Results showed that vermicompost leachate containing Bacillales strains could be used as a biocontrol agent of various pathogenic fungi, runing to a more effective and environmentally-friendly product to control those phytopathogens.

  • Carbon capture by a green facade

    • Authors: Jazmin Carbajal Avila, Antonio Alfonso Rodríguez Rosales, Luz Patricia Ávila Caballero, América Libertad Rodríguez Herrera, Heriberto Hernández Cocoletzi
      Pages: 55 - 61
      Abstract: Vegetation in large land area plays the role of a natural carbon sink which eliminates high concentrations of greenhouse gases; for this reason, it is necessary to maintain the balance between the built and vegetated surfaces in the cities. Green infrastructure systems are used as an answer to this urban problem and green facades are part of them. This study aimed to determine the amount of C and CO2 captured by Pentalinon luteum and Clitoria ternatea species, used in a constructed model. Both capture similar amounts of carbon. The obtained data are useful for further investigation because there is not a specific record of CO2 capture to date for the species recommended species for walls and vegetated roofs.

  • Unprecedented and Scalable Copper (I)-Catalyzed Oxidation of the Csp2-H
           bond on 2-phenyl-naphthalene-1,3-diol with Atmospheric Oxygen: synthesis

    • Authors: Sheila Teresita Guardado-Cruz, Rafael Ortiz-Alvarado, Claudia de León, César Rogelio Solorio-Alvarado
      Pages: 62 - 68
      Abstract: The Csp2-O bond formation via direct oxidation of the Csp2-H bond on electron-rich compounds such as naphthols, is a process that generally requires drastic reaction conditions like high temperature or pressure. Addition of strong oxidants as H2O2, hypervalent iodine reagents (λ3 o λ5), expensive transition metals or rare earth elements, such as Mo, Ru Pt or Ce, is usually necessary. As part of this study on oxidative dimerization of phenols towards the total synthesis of ningalin D, 1,3-naphthalenediol was explored as starting material using stoichiometric amounts of Cu(I) and atmospheric molecular oxygen. A novel two-step sequence reaction for the formation of a 1,4-naphthoquinone was found instead of a dimerization product. The synthesis of this compound involves two consecutive oxidation processes.

  • Evaluation framework for small-dimension solar cookers

    • Authors: Mauricio González-Avilés, Luis Bernardo López Sosa, Hermelinda Servín Campuzano
      Pages: 69 - 75
      Abstract: The present work introduces an evaluation framework for small-dimension solar cookers based on three parameters: energy efficiency, ease of use, and economic accessibility. Each parameter evaluates various quantifiable indicators, as a) energy efficiency: standardized cooking power, heating time, and thermal performance, b) ease of use: load capacity in the pot, mass in relation to collector area, orientations per hour, and c) economic accessibility: cost per watt generated and durability of the reflector and/or thermal accumulator. Each indicator has been assigned a maximum and minimum evaluation; data obtained from these indicators were integrated in a radial graph. The sum of the indicators constitutes the aspect to be compared, but the graph also allows us to interpret the strengths and weaknesses described above. This framework requires two or more devices, since it is a comparative tool.

    • Authors: Perla Jannet Jurado García, Zuliana Paola Benitez Henández, Fernando Mondaca Fernández, Judith Margarita Rodríguez-Villalobos, José René Blanco Ornelas
      Pages: 76 - 82
      Abstract: The present study aims to investigate whether the psychometric results proposed for the Spanish version of the scales of Psychological Well-being Ryff. The total sample was 1528 Mexican university, with an average age of 20.56 years (SD = 1.87). The factorial structure of the questionnaire was analyzed through exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis. Analyses show that three factors is feasible and appropriate. The structure of three factors (personal growth, positive relationships and self-acceptance), based on statistical and substantive criteria, and has shown adequate adjustment indicators of reliability and validity. However, the model does not match the obtained raised by the reference version. Future research should replicate these findings in larger samples.
