STUDY OF THE BOWEN RATIO IN AREA A FOREST NO SOUTHWEST AMAZON
Keywords:Sensible heat. Latent heat. Amazon. Climate interactions. Hydrological cycle.
The changes mainly occurred in the hydrological cycle are associated with anthropogenic changes. In Brazil are already seen possible changes in the southwestern region that has suffered from water scarcity in their reservoirs. Understanding the Bowen ratio in the Amazon region becomes important to try to understand this ecosystem, since such information connect regional climate change. The latent heat fluxes were analyzed (λE) and sensible heat (H) in REBIO Jaru to determine the reason for Bowen and seek possible climate interactions in humid, wetdry, dry, dry-wet periods in 2009. The results observed in these periods in the Bowen ratio were 0:21; 0:24; 0:30; 0:21, and show that the forest little changes with seasonality during the year unlike the transition of biomes (Amazon - cerrado) and pasture area.

Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication
The Ciência e Natura journal is committed to ensuring ethics in publication and quality of articles.
Conformance to standards of ethical behavior is therefore expected of all parties involved: Authors, Editors, Reviewers, and the Publisher.
Authors: Authors should present an objective discussion of the significance of research work as well as sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the experiments. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.

The Authors should ensure that their work is entirely original works, and if the work and/or words of others have been used, this has been appropriately acknowledged. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. The corresponding Author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all Co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication.
