Fruit Fly Research and Development in Africa - Towards a by Sunday Ekesi, Samira A. Mohamed, Marc De Meyer PDF

Horticultural area provides many possibilities for monetary improvement and enhancing livelihood of growers yet numerous components constrain creation and restrict the potential of exchange of fruit and veggies. Tephritid fruit flies represent an incredible constraint. They reason huge, immense losses via direct feeding harm and lack of marketplace possibilities via imposition of quarantine regulations via uploading international locations to avoid access and their institution.

Sample text

This study has attempted to compile data from 44 S. M. Klofak et al. members of the most primitive ammonoid clade. These data, based both on internal and external features show that these ammonoids share homologies with the rest of the Ammonoidea, in possessing similar embryonic shell characters. The actual character states are different, allowing for further phylogenetic analysis. The presence of similar features supports the notion that all ammonoid shells probably shared a common mode of formation; as one would expect in a monophyletic clade.

The spacing of the lirae offers another important clue to the mode of embryonic formation. While there is some variation in the spacing of Iirae from the embryonic to the postembryonic part of the shell, the average spacing of lirae on both the embryonic and postembryonic shell is generally larger than that attributed to fine growth lines (-I tim) and is more consistant with spacing of ornamental features. Furthermore, we have found the presence of traces of what appear to be growth lines between the Iirae on the postembryonic shell (Fig.
