Biolarvicidal and pupicidal potential of silver nanoparticles synthesized using Euphorbia hirta against Anopheles stephensi Liston (Diptera: Culicidae)
Results suggest that synthesized silver nanoparticles are a rapid, eco-friendly, and single-step approach; the AgNPs formed can be potential mosquito larvicidal agents. Expand
Larvicidal, pupicidal, repellent and adulticidal activity of Citrus sinensis orange peel extract against Anopheles stephensi, Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae)
The results suggest that the orange peel extracts of C. sinensis have the potential to be used as an ideal eco-friendly approach for the control of the vector control programmes. Expand
Evaluation of leaf aqueous extract and synthesized silver nanoparticles using Nerium oleander against Anopheles stephensi (Diptera: Culicidae)
The results could suggest that the use of plant N. oleander to synthesize silver nanoparticles is a rapid, environmentally safer, and greener approach for mosquito control and lead to a new possibility in vector-control strategy. Expand
Adulticidal and repellent properties of Cassia tora Linn. (Family: Caesalpinaceae) against Culex quinquefasciatus, Aedes aegypti, and Anopheles stephensi
The results suggest that the leaf solvent plant extracts have the potential to be used as an ideal eco-friendly approach for the control of mosquitoes. Expand
A trophic model for Kuosheng Bay in northern Taiwan.
Using the Ecopath with Ecosim software system, a mass-balanced trophic model of Kuosheng Bay, where the Second Nuclear Power Plant is sited on the coast, was constructed. This model comprised 17Expand
Larvicidal Efficiency of Aquatic Predators: A Perspective for Mosquito Biocontrol
Ram Kumar and Jiang-Shiou Hwang (2006) Larvicidal efficiency of aquatic predators: a perspective for mos- quito biocontrol. Zoological Studies 45(4): 447-466. Biological control of mosquito larvaeExpand
Green synthesis of silver nanoparticles using Murraya koenigii leaf extract against Anopheles stephensi and Aedes aegypti
The results suggest that the use of M. koenigii synthesized silver nanoparticles can be a rapid, environmentally safer biopesticide which can form a novel approach to develop effective biocides for controlling the target vector mosquitoes. Expand
Host selection by shrimps symbiotic with sea anemones: A field survey and experimental laboratory analysis
It is inferred that shrimp use more than one sensory modality to locate a host anemone, as in the preference experiments, source of the shrimp affected the results for P. brevicarpalis and T. amboinensis. Expand
Changes in the swimming behavior of Eurytemora affinis (Copepoda, Calanoida) in response to a sub-lethal exposure to nonylphenols.
It is observed immediate alterations of the free swimming activity of the calanoid copepod Eurytemora affinis from the Seine estuary in response to a sub-lethal concentration of nonylphenols (4-NP and NP1EC) at environmentally realistic concentrations. Expand
Bioefficacy of larvicdial and pupicidal properties of Carica papaya (Caricaceae) leaf extract and bacterial insecticide, spinosad, against chikungunya vector, Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae)
The results show that the leaves extract of C. papaya and bacterial insecticide, Spinosad is promising as good larvicidal and pupicidal properties of against chikungunya vector, A. aegypti as target species of vector control programs. Expand
