Chromosomes and their Meiotic Behavior in Two Families of the Sub-order Heteroptera
TLDR
X undergoes equational division at metaphase-I while at metaphases-II it remains outside the metaphase plate and is added to one of the pole as a precocious element in Cletus bipunctatus and as a laggard in Serinetha augur.
Karyotypic Variations in the Chromosome Complement of Pantala flavescens (Fabricius) of the Family Libellulidae (Anisoptera: Odonata)
TLDR
Male germ cell complement of Pantala flavescens belonging to the family Libellulidae has been investigated and variations in the chromosome number and behaviour of m chromosomes indicate that the species is under the process of karyotypic evolution.
COI-based DNA barcoding of some species of Pentatomidae from North India (Hemiptera: Heteroptera)

    Mitochondrial DNA. Part A, DNA mapping…
  • 1 September 2017
TLDR
This is the first ever molecular study which has generated distinct barcodes for each species of family Pentatomidae, indicating a hierarchical increase in K2P mean divergence across different taxonomic levels.
ERYTHROCYTE ABNORMALITIES IN A FRESHWATER FISH , LABEO ROHITA EXPOSED TO TANNERY INDUSTRY EFFLUENT
TLDR
The increase in erythrocyte abnormalities indicated that tannery industry effluent increased the clastogenic effects on peripheral ery Throthrocytes of Labeo rohita and may have similar effects on the human population located around the river and consume fishes.
Status of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Infections and Evaluation of PVL Producing Strains in Belgaum , South India
TLDR
High percentage of PVL positive MRSA and MSSA, higher than the most reports worldwide, is showed, in the backdrop of bacterial strains gaining multiple drug resistance, and warrants further epidemiological studies in hospitals and community levels in the region.
DYEING INDUSTRY EFFLUENT INDUCED BEHAVIORAL AND MORPHOLOGICAL CHANGES IN THE FISH , C IRRHINUS MRIGALA
Cirrhinus mrigala was employed to assess the behavioral and morphological changes exposed to dyeing industry effluent. The 96h LC50 of dyeing industry effluent was calculated by Finney method (1971)
Faunal diversity of terrestrial Heteroptera (Insecta: Hemiptera) in Punjab, India
TLDR
During exhaustive study on the Heteropteran fauna from Punjab, 85 species belonging to 61 genera representing 13 families were collected, dominated by Pentatomidae followed by Lygaeidae, Reduviidae and Coreidae.
Ecotoxicological studies on fish, Labeo rohita exposed to tannery industry effluent by using micronucleus test
TLDR
Results revealed that discharge of tannery effluent caused clastogenic effects in fish erythrocytes, which may lead to stock depletion of fishes and aquatic organisms living in rivers and human population living around rivers using contaminated water and consuming contaminated fishes.
Meiotic behaviour of chromosomes in three predator species of the subfamily Asopinae (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
The study of chromosome behaviour has been carried out on males of three species of the Asopinae (Pentatomidae) bugs Andrallus spinidens, Canthecona furcellata Wolff and Perillus bioculatus collected in India.
Studies on internal male reproductive organs and course of meiosis in a predator species Repipta taurus (Fabricius, 1803) (Heteroptera: Reduviidae: Harpactorinae)
TLDR
Male reproductive organs of Repipta taurus (Heteroptera: Reduviidae) consist of heart-shaped bipartite testes lying on the sides of the alimentary tract and shows a unique pattern of chromosomal arrangement at metaphase-I.
