Macrobrachium abrahami, new species is described from Vamanapuram River, Kerala, South India. DNA bar-coding using Cytochrome B gene sequences has elucidated the taxonomic status of the new species and the ML tree reveals that M. abrahami sp. nov., is phylogenetically close to M. prabhakarani, but morphologically more similar to M. scabriculum. However, the(More)
Macrobrachium snpurii sp. nov., collected from the Karamana River, in the lower reaches of Western Ghats, is described and illustrated. DNA barcoding using Cytochrome B gene sequences has elucidated the taxonomic status of the new species and the NJ tree reveals that M. snpurii sp. nov., is phylogenetically close to M. idella idella. However, morphometric(More)
Macrobrachium indianum new species is described from the Pambar River, Kerala, S. India. The species shares certain characters with M. gurudeve Jayachandran & Raji, 2004, M. bombayense Almelker & Sankolli, 2006 and M. kulkarnii Almelker & Sankolli, 2006, while it differs remarkably from these three species in distinctive diagnostic characters: rostral(More)

Macrobrachium aemulum madhusoodani, a new subspecies of M. aemulum (Nobili, 1906) is described and illustrated. The distinctive characters of the subspecies are: rostral formula 9-13/2, second pereiopods dissimilar in shape and unequal in size, movable finger of larger second pereiopod with 2 large denticles on the proximal part and 6 weak denticles on(More)
This paper estimates the effect of chemical additives like CuO on the interfacial thermal resistance of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) embedded in water. The investigation of thermal properties of CNT nanostructure is carried out using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. The nanotube was heated to a prescribed temperature, followed by the relaxation of the entire(More)
