Abstract Worldwide distributed tropical savannas were established only in the Miocene, with climatic cooling and rise of C4 grasses. However, there is evidence for an earlier presence of savanna-like vegetation in southern parts of South America. Here we investigated the biogeographic history of a clade of solitary bees which have endemic groups in areas covered by savannas and other types of open vegetation as well as forested areas. We hypothesized that these bees originated in savanna-like bi...

Neocorynura Schrottky is one of the most speciose genera in the Augochlorini with about 80 species. Neocorynura is primarily distributed in the Neotropical region, from Argentina to Mexico. New species have been described recently, but the Brazilian fauna has not been studied at the same rate. Thus, the objective of this study is to provide a revision of Neocorynura species from Brazil. More than 2,500 specimens were studied along with the examination of primary type specimens and/or high resolu...

Abstract The Augochlora clade includes four genera: Augochlora Smith, Augochlorella Sandhouse, Ceratalictus Moure, and Pereirapis Moure. This is one of the richest and most widespread groups of Augochlorini bees. There are about 150 species, which occur from Argentina to Canada. The species of Augochlora clade are considered solitary to facultatively social, except Ceratalictus for which nothing is known. Wood nesting behavior arose once in the clade, in Augochlora sensu strictu. The objective o...

Augochlorine bees exhibit a large array of foraging and social behaviors, nest substrates and architecture. The huge diversity of behaviors is frequently linked with morphological traits. All levels of variation should be analyzed in order to provide a broader view of evoluton. Augochlora (Augochlora) amphitrite Schrottky occurs from northern of Argentina to southeastern of Brazil. The species nests in decaying wood and is facultatively eusocial. Color variation and head polymorphism were alread...

Urban ecosystems are growing rapidly and urbanization is an important cause of the loss of biodiversity. Bees are declining in abundance worldwide, including urban areas, and this decline is alarming because of their global importance as plant pollinators. Here we examine that decline by comparing a bee assemblage sampled in the 1980s and again in 2015, in an urban area of the city of Curitiba. Both studies sampled assemblages with hand-nets every two weeks during one year of study. Bee species ...

Summary RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) detects estrogen receptor alpha gene ( ESR1 ) fusion transcripts in estrogen receptor-positive (ER + ) breast cancer, but their role in disease pathogenesis remains unclear. We examined multiple ESR1 fusions and found that two, both identified in advanced endocrine treatment-resistant disease, encoded stable and functional fusion proteins. In both examples, ESR1-e6>YAP1 and ESR1-e6>PCDH11X, ESR1 exons 1–6 were fused in frame to C-terminal sequences from the partn...

Neoadjuvant endocrine therapy (NET) with Ki67-based response monitoring is a practical, cost-effective approach to the management of clinical stage II and III estrogen receptor-positive (ER+) breast cancer. In addition to marked improvements in rates of breast conservation, the identification of extreme responders on the basis of the preoperative endocrine prognostic index (PEPI) provides a rationale to avoid chemotherapy on the basis of highly favorable prognosis in some patients. Finally, samp...
