Use of a barbed tool by an adult and a juvenile woodpecker finch (Cactospiza pallida). - Behavioural processes
Here we describe the modification and use of a new tool type in the woodpecker finch (Cactospiza pallida). This species is known to habitually use twigs or cactus spines to extract arthropods out of tree holes. We observed an adult and a juvenile bird using several barbed twigs from introduced blackberry bushes (Rubus niveus) which the adult bird had first modified by removing leaves and side twigs. The barbs of blackberry tools provide a novel functional feature not present in tools made from native plants and de-leafing of twigs never has been observed before. Both birds were observed using several of these tools to extract prey from under the bark of the native scalesia tree (Scalesia penduculta). They oriented the twigs such that the barbs pointed towards themselves; this rendered the barbs functional as they could be used to drag prey out of a crevice. The juvenile bird first watched the adult using the tool and then used the tool that the adult bird had left under the bark at the same location and in the same way as the adult. Our observation highlights the fact that opportunities for the transmission of social information do occur in the wild and indicates that woodpecker finches are flexible in their choice of tool material and tool modification.Copyright © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

The prognostic impact of tumor size in resected stage I non-small cell lung cancer: evidence for a two thresholds tumor diameters classification. - Lung cancer (Amsterdam, Netherlands)
The current TNM staging system for non-small cell lung cancer subdivides stage IA and IB according to a tumor size threshold of 3 cm. Some authors have suggested that tumor size behaves as a continuous, but the optimal diameter thresholds to be adopted remain debated.We conducted a retrospective study on 548 patients who underwent a complete surgical resection at our institute for stage IA and IB non-small cell lung cancer according to the current TNM staging system. Univariate and multiaviate analysis of overall and disease-specific survival were performed.Stage IA had an overall 5 years survival of 67% and a 5 years disease-specific survival of 85%. Stage IB had an overall 5 years of 49% and 5 years disease-specific survival of 53%. Tumors <2 cm had a significantly better survival than tumors > or =2 cm (overall survival: p=0.007; disease-specific survival: p=0.026), as well as tumors ranging from 2 to 5 cm in comparison with larger ones (overall survival: p=0.031; disease-specific survival: p=0.013). No significant difference was found between groups ranging from 2 to 5 cm. Tumors of 2-5 cm had 57% higher probability of death in comparison with tumors <2 cm and tumors >5 cm had a probability of death 60% higher than tumor of 2-5 cm. Age and tumor size (two thresholds diameter classification) resulted independent variables at multivariate analysis.the definition of T factor in the staging system of non-small cell lung cancer should consider two cutoffs according to tumor size. Two and 5 cm represent appropriate thresholds diameters that define subgroups with significant different prognosis.
Solid olive residues: insight into their phenolic composition. - Journal of agricultural and food chemistry
Solid olive residues (SOR) are byproducts of the olive-milling process, but they have an increasing importance in the pharmaceutical industry due to their rich content of biophenols. Such compounds are studied widely for their antioxidant and antimicrobial activities, but there is a lack of information about their quantitative recovery. This research highlighted the key role played both by the selection of the cultivar and by the degree of olive fruit ripening on the phenolic content on the SOR. The extraction methods were selected to reach the best quantitative results mainly using a safe food solvent. In light of the results the Soxhlet extraction with ethanol could be proposed as preferential for a higher recovery of verbascoside and its analogues.
