Characterization and Leaching Assessment of Ferronickel Slag from a Smelting Plant in Iligan City, Philippines
Iligan City ferronickel smelting plant is producing more than 500,000 metric tons (MT) of ferronickel slag annually which are deposited in the plant's premises since it has no economic value.Expand
Medicinal plants used by the Higaonon tribe of Rogongon, Iligan City, Mindanao, Philippines
This paper presents the ethnobotanical study conducted in Rogongon in Iligan City, Philippines on the indigenous medicinal plant utilization and healthcare practices among the Higaonon tribe.Expand
Variations in Scale Morphology between Sexes of the Spotted Barb, Puntius Binotatus (Valenciennes, 1842) (Actinopterygii: Cyprinidae)
Scale morphology provides new and useful information for systematics. Scales have numerous hidden details in their structures that contribute effectively to fish identification and classification. AExpand
Sexual Dimorphism in the Shell Shape of the Golden Apple Snail, Pomacea canaliculata (Lamarck) Using Geometric Morphometric Analysis
Results clearly indicate that geometric morphometric methods are useful in detecting subtle differences between sexes in P. canaliculata and demonstrate sexual differences in size, spire height, and shell opening. Expand
Describing variations in scales between sexes of the yellowstriped goatfish, Upeneus vittatus (Forskål, 1775) (Perciformes: Mullidae)
It is demonstrated that scale characteristics can provide useful taxonomic information on the morphological differences between sexes of U. vittatus and that elliptic Fourier analysis and principal Component analysis are good tools to discriminate variation in scale shapes. Expand
Sexual dimorphism in the shape of the primary wing and tail feathers of the sky blue parakeet (budgerigar), Melopsittacus undulatus (Shaw, 1805) (Psittaciformes: Psittacidae)
It is suggested that based from this study, a more complete understanding and proper identification on the biological basis of the observed wing shape differences are needed which could be elemental in the proper and effective conservation of this species. Expand
Shell Shapes of the Chinese Pond Mussel Sinanodonta woodiana (Lea, 1834) from Lawis Stream in Iligan City and Lake Lanao in Mindanao, Philippines
This study aimed to determine morphological variation within and between two populations of S.woodiana (Lea, 1834) from Lake Lanao, Marantao and Lawis stream, Iligan City using elliptic FourierExpand
Complete mitochondrial genome of Atergatis integerrimus (Decapoda, Xanthidae) from the Philippines
The result of the phylogenetic relationship study showed that A. integerrimus was closest to Leptodius sanguineus, and the position of A. intergerrimus in the superfamily Xanthoidea was determined based on the mitochondrial protein-coding genes. Expand
Variability in head shapes in three populations of the Rice Bug Leptocorisa oratorius (Fabricius) (Hemiptera: Alydidae)
The rice bug, Leptocorisa oratorius (Fabricius) is an insect pest of rice that feeds on developing rice grains reducing the yield and quality of rice. Identification of this pest has been vague owingExpand
