Study of the Habitats, Burrowing Behavior, Physiological Adaptation and Life Cycle of Spadefoot Toad (Pelobates syriacus, Boettger, 1869) at the Southern Limit of Its Distribution in Israel

Based on observations and data collected over more than 30 years in northern Israel, this study describes the habitats, life cycle, larval growth, burrowing behavior, and terrestrial adaptation of spadefoot toads (Pelobates syriacus) in Israel. In Israel, the distribution area extends from the north in the Upper Galilee and Golan Heights (annual rainfall range of […]

A Detailed Study of Pesticide Induced Puffs in Chironomus striatipennis

Because of their efficiency against a wide range of insect pests, pesticides are widely employed. It has an effect on the aquatic vegetation and fauna. The current study looks at the acute toxicity of endosulfan to 4th instar larvae of Chironomus stratipennis, a common and widespread Indian species. For analysing polytene chromosomal band maps and […]

Study on Irrigation of Spinach Plant with Reversed “Osmosis” Desalinated Sea Water

A method for reclaiming used saltwater The leftover water is desalinated using the reverse osmosis process after treating magnesium metal with citric acid to produce hydrogen gas and precipitating magnesium as magnesium gluconate. Magnesium gluconate was manufactured as a medicine under normal conditions and is water soluble. A wound that is spiralled In the prototype […]

Synthesis, Optical and Electrical Properties of PANI-MWCNT-ZnS Nanocomposites

Polyaniline (PANI)-MWCNT-Zinc sulphide (ZnS) nanocomposites were created by in situ polymerization of aniline in the presence of MWCNT and negatively charged ZnS nanoparticles. The nanocomposites were classified using HRTEM, FTIR, UV-VIS absorption spectroscopy, and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy. HRTEM was used to determine the particle sizes of several nanocomposites, which were found to be about 3.21 […]

Overview of the Centrifugal Visual System in Mammalian Species

It is well known that the retina and the central nervous system have a bidirectional neural connection. The classical visual system and the retinohypothalamic tract make up the retinofugal link. There are various subsystems that make up the retinopetal linkages. The centrifugal visual system refers to a group of routes that originate from various parts […]

Management of Brain Metastases with Preoperative Radiosurgery

Nearly 30 percent to 54 percent of all patients are diagnosed with the most common intracranial tumor brain metastases (BMs) during or after their solid cancer treatment courses. Although the prognosis is extremely poor for BM patients, the estimated median OS is usually less than 7 months. However, nowadays, after the implementation of effective systemic […]

Reporting a Rare Case of Plasmacytoid Myoepithelioma of Hard Palate

Myoepitheliomas are rare salivary gland tumours that make up less than 1% of all salivary gland tumours. The growth patterns may be solid, myxoid or reticular, and spindle-shaped, plasmacytoid, hyaline, transparent or epithelioid may be the component cells. Objective: Salivary gland myoepithelioma is exceedingly rare, representing just around 1-1,5 percent of all salivary gland tumours. […]

Assessment of the Capability of Poultry Association of Nigeria for Extension Services Delivery to Poultry Farmers in Kwara State, Nigeria

Poultry farming in Nigeria creates business opportunity for entrepreneurs and provides employment. The small scale poultry producers are responsible for the bulk of poultry production in Nigeria. The findings revealed that 63.7% of the respondents were males within the age bracket of 40-50 years and were literate. Extension services delivery to poultry farmers by Kwara […]

Island Universes: Galactic General Relativity without Dark Matter

We apply the perturbative technique which was previously developed in cosmology to now describe the gravitational field of a galaxy with arbitrary rotation curve. We use a Schwarzschild background as starting point, however with the correct physical coordinates. In the perturbation theory we find two classes of metric perturbations, (i) stationary perturbations in a 3‐dimensional […]

Soil Fertility Nutrition and Size of the Fruit of Guava with Liquid Organic Fertilizers

In Calvillo, Aguascalientes, guava is produced more than 100 years ago. In order to improve soil fertility, promote plant growth and improve fruit quality, during 2014-2016 the experiment was carried out. The fruit manure was prepared, manure tea and compost tea, each applied to the soil, foliage and soil and foliage plus a witness, each […]
