A framework for categorizing risks in High Speed Train (HST) projects: the example of the first HST in Brazil

effects on the project. This process should consider the project uncertainty elements in order to generate specific results. In the case of HST projects, examples of uncertainty elements are: politics, economy, environment, human resources and technology. Therefore, this study aims to present a framework for categorizing risks to be used in HST projects. Also, for each category proposed some risk examples are suggested. An overview of the first Brazil HST project is showed and the risk framework is

First report of the root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne morocciensis infecting peach in Southern Brazil

The peach tree (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch) is the third most cultivated temperate fruit species in Brazil. In August 2017, peach seedlings showing symptoms of stunting and multiple galls on the roots (Fig. 1A) were detected in a nursery in Pelotas, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Samples of peach roots were collected and subsequently processed (Hussey and Barker, 1973) to obtain eggs and second-stage juveniles (J2) to determine the number of nematodes per gram of roots and to for morphological

Identification of rare blood types in southern Brazil: impact on transfusion support

requires access to a blood inventory widely phenotyped, as well as a rare donor registry. A way of accomplishing this initiative is by screening routinely for rare phenotypes in blood donors.6 In Brazil, there are few studies about the prevalence of rare blood types in the population, and the existing results reveal that within the same state, differences occur depending on the region.7 Until 2014, there was no national rare donor program, and the inventories of frozen RBCs were kept in two centers

First report of Meloidogyne javanica infecting Zinnia elegans in Ceará State, Brazil

Zinnia (Zinnia elegans Jacq.), a herbaceous plant of the Asteraceae family, is among the species use in Brazil for flower production. This species, originally from Mexico, has a broad diversity of flower colors, a wide variety of petal shapes, and the possibility of being cultivated throughout the year (Torres, 1963; Stimart, 1987). The Zinnia genus comprises 17 species and in Brazil it is known by common names as captain, young, and old, cinnamon sticks or zinnia, being grown in regions of

In October 2020, samples of South American reeds showing many galls on the roots (Fig. 1A, B) were collected in rice fields, before sowing the crop from the municipality of Agudo (29° 34′16, 7″S; 53° 17′17, 4″ O; 53 m), state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. No symptoms were observed in the aerial part of infected South American rush plants. Figure 1: Meloidogyne

In Brazil, it has a wide distribution, present in all regions, also parasiting native plants, which can act as alternative hosts and source of inoculum (Gonzaga et al., 2016). In August 2019, samples of roots and rhizospheric soil were collected in caatinga areas of the plants of Cereus jamacaru, Myracrodruon urundeuva, Caesalpinia pyramidalis

First Report of Meloidogyne ethiopica and M. javanica in Rumex spp. in Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil

Rumex spp. is a common weed in the southern of the Brazil, where it infests pastures, annuals crop and orchards. In September 2017, Rumex plants with root-knot disease were collected in the municipality of Pelotas, state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Initially, specimens were obtained by Coolen and D’Herde (1972) and later identified through morphological studies and esterase phenotypes (Carneiro and Almeida, 2001). Perineal patterns were consistent with Meloidogyne ethiopica (Whitehead, 1968

First report of root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita, infecting hops, Humulus lupulus, in São Paulo, Brazil

Humulus lupulus L. (Cannabaceae) is a creeping, herbaceous, perennial, and dioecious plant used mainly as a raw material in the beer brewing industry. Furthermore, this plant has medicinal properties and is used to treat insomnia, stress, and anxiety (Kyrou et al., 2017). Humulus lupulus has been cultivated in temperate regions for centuries, mainly in the Northern Hemisphere. However, after farmers efforts and management improvements, hop plants have been successfully cultivating in Brazil

Easy method for determining the frequency of O1 and O2 alleles in Brazilian blood donors by PCR-RFLP analysis

Serologic ABO blood typing is routinely performed using anti-A and anti-B sera to distinguish four phenotypes (A, B, AB, and O). Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) and DNA sequence studies offer the possibility of direct ABO genotyping. We used polymerase chain reaction-RFLP analysis to determine the frequency of O1 and O2 alleles in 82 unrelated blood donors in São Paulo, Brazil, known to be group O. Genomic DNA was extracted from blood leukocytes by a modified salting

These nematodes cause injuries to outer layers of cortical tissue (observed as brown–reddish to black discrete spots), as well as disruption and progressive deterioration of the roots system and, as a consequence, the plant’s capacity for the uptake of water and nutrients is affected negatively (Orbin, 1973; Ngoc Chau et al., 1997; Crozzoli
