Mating Order Establishes Male Size Advantage in the Polygynandrous Millipede Centrobolus inscriptus Attems, 1928 | Chapter 7 | New Visions in Biological Science Vol.9

The size assortative mating of a forest species of millipede belonging to the Order Spirobolida found along the eastern coast of southern Africa was investigated. The goals are to test for size benefits in mating by controlling for SSD in multiple mating. The duration of the first mating was positively related to male length (rs=0.30,…

Length and Width Correlations in Centrobolus Cook, 1897| Chapter 6 | New Visions in Biological Science Vol.9

The size correlations of a forest genus of diplopods belonging to the order Spirobolida found along the eastern coast of southern Africa were investigated. The Pearson Correlation Coefficient Calculator was used to assess for correlations between four morphometric parameters for male and female lengths (mm) and widths (mm) collected from literature. In a study of…

Copulation duration Allometry in Worm-like Millipedes (Diplopoda: Chilognatha: Helminthomorpha) | Chapter 5 | New Visions in Biological Science Vol.9

Copulation duration variance in mate-guarding worm-like millipedes was examined as one of many determining factors of copulation duration across arthropods. In worm-like millipedes, the goal was to compute copulation duration allometry. The null hypothesis was that mean copulation duration and variance were unaffected by body mass. The length of copulation and the standard deviation squared…

The Copulation duration Allometry in Centrobolus (Diplopoda: Spirobolida: Pachybolidae)| Chapter 4 | New Visions in Biological Science Vol.9

Copulation duration variance in forest millipedes was examined as one of the deciding elements of copulation duration across arthropods. The goal was to figure out how much variance there was in copulation time. The null hypothesis was that mean copulation duration and variance were unaffected by body mass. In the literature, copulation duration and standard…

A Captured Adult Female Mantis Religiosa (Insecta: Mantodea) Laid Four Oothecas under Laboratory Conditions: An Observational Approach

The Mantodea (Insecta) (Burmeister, 1838) is a well-studied insect due to its numerous outstanding traits. The quantity of oothecas laid by a female Mantis religiosa (Linnaeus, 1758) has not been documented, to the author’s knowledge. A collected female Mantis religiosa was bred in the laboratory of Hacettepe University, Faculty of Biology, Department of Forensic Entomology,…

Assessment of Rhesus D Distribution in Blood Group of Individuals and the Relationship with Bleeding Time

In randomly selected subjects from Niger Delta University, Bayelsa State, Nigeria, the relationship between rhesus factor and bleeding time in blood group O was investigated using standard antisera and Duke’s system. The O+ group had a shorter bleeding time (1.32 ± 0.41 min) than the O- group (1.33 ± 0.37 min). Gender-wise, females in the…

In vivo Propagation of Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba)

Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) is a semi-hard wood perennial shrub grown on arid and semi-arid regions of the world. The stem cutting method is simple and efficient method for semi-hard wood plants to propagate vegetatively. The aim of this study was to investigate the best method of in vivo propagation through stem cutting of Simmondsia chinensis.…
