December special webinar: phytophagous mites in the Americas

Dear Members, we invite you to a new SLA webinar:

News about phytophagous mites in the Americas: a tremendous challenge!

The number of known species is very poor to the number of species estimated by molecular techniques, calculated in millions of species not yet discovered. The most problematic thing is the understanding of new species, possible new families, and genera, not yet discovered or studied. The importance of using molecular and microscopic techniques that help understand this mite biodiversity is highlighted. Knowledge of these species, in diverse environments as well as their interactions with their hosts and predators, represents a challenge for the Americas.

Speakers: Dr. Ronald Ochoa (SEL-ARS-USDA-EAU Researcher) and Mg. Javier Huanca (National University of San Agustín, Arequipa, Peru)

Date: December 15, 2023

Time: 7:00 p.m. ARG/BRA/URU (check local time)

Transmission: Channel of the Latin American Society of Acarology

The SLA August webinar will discuss “Fossil caeculid mites: their contributions to the systematics and phylogeny of the family”. Mag. Andrés Porta will be in charge of presenting updated information on the Caeculidae family, with an extensive fossil record, with the oldest described species coming from Myanmar amber (upper Cretaceous, age 99 Ma) and three other described species from other more recent amber deposits. In this presentation, the fossil record of this family will be reviewed and its importance in the development of phylogenetic hypotheses at intrafamilial and intrageneric levels (Procaeculus and Andocaeculus genera) will be shown using morphological and molecular data of current species.

Date: Thursday, August 31

Hours:

                      19 hs: ARG/BRA/URY

                      18 hs: BOL/CHL (STGO)/CUB/DMA/PRY/VEN/USA

SLA July Webinar: Brazilian Spotted Fever

In our July webinar we will talk about the “Brazilian Spotted Fever” with the presence of three of the researchers who were part of the project to determine, through a protocol, the priority areas for action by public entities dedicated to mitigating and preventing the occurrence of Brazilian Spotted Fever: biologist Luis de Queiróz, student André Pinheiro and researcher Joao Pedro Martin (Luiz de Queiroz Higher School of Agriculture – ESALQ, University of São Paulo, Piracicaba/SP).

Spotted fever is a disease that can become lethal in a few days if left untreated (it can be cured, but the mortality rate is high). In South America, the causative agents of this disease are bacteria of the genus Rickettsia and the main host organisms for these bacteria are some types of ticks.

In Brazil, most cases of this disease occur in the Southeast region, mainly in the interior of the state of Sao Paulo, where the disease is associated with the bacterium Rickettsia rickettsii and the star tick (Amblyomma sculptum).

We are waiting for you on July 20, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. (BR)
