The BTNP is most used by primary care health professionals to obtain asynchronous second opinions, usually performed in the regional telehealth centers and has been recommended before authorizing the removal of a patient to a secondary health (10,11).
Local structural changes to establish and integrate TMH activities (i.e., video-conference environments) occur in many centers with mental health teams involved in the BTNP. The integration of mental health care into primary care is restricted to academic initiatives associated with the following areas and objectives:
Fontanive (24) described the relevance of mental health education in the BTNP. Of the top 5 medical education needs, 4 lie within the mental health field (i.e.
Understanding how Sapium utilizes mycorrhizal associations in its introduced range may help explain the mechanisms underlying its invasion in the BTNP and increase general knowledge of the role of mycorrhizae in affecting plant community dynamics.
A greenhouse experiment was conducted to test the effects of mycorrhizal inoculation, fungicide application, and fertilization on the growth of Sapium and five tree species native to the BTNP. If mycorrhizae contribute to Sapium invasion, then the performance advantage of Sapium compared to natives should be greater with mycorrhizal inoculation than without.
Seeds of five native tree species that are common in mesic and hydric forests in the BTNP and may potentially be outcompeted by Sapium sebiferum (Liquidambar styraciflua L.
