Phylogeography of Dusky Fruit Bat (Penthetor lucasi) in Malaysia ab 68 EURO On species diversity morphological and genetics perspectives
The book introduces the reader to the variety of fishes strictly found in the freshwater habitats of Peninsular Malaysia. A total of 289 native species are presented making it the most comprehensive account of freshwater fishes of Peninsular Malaysia to date. This book provides keys, descriptions and illustrations for identifying them and information on their distribution throughout Peninsular Malaysia. Simple morphological features, taxonomical terms, current taxonomical classification and nomenclature are presented. The non-technical approach of the book, but with an accurate and reasonably complete treatment of the subject, facilitates readers with varied background and interests. Special terms have been kept to a minimum. Those which seem essential for clarity or conciseness are defined where first used. The information on each species follows a uniform arrangement - scientific name, original description, recommended Malay name, diagnosis and habitat. It is hoped that this book will stimulate further studies to uncover new facts about the freshwater fishes of Peninsular Malaysia in particular, and Malaysia and the surrounding region in general.
Creativity potential is the inner ability of a person that generates new and original ideas. However, creative thinking is more than just using imaginative power to produce ideas, it is a new lifestyle of doing things and perceiving the world. This book presents the findings of an in-depth study on the implementation of a computer-based creative thinking tool on participants from a public university in Malaysia. The technique, well known as Morphology Analysis Method, is a platform for creating lots of new ideas via the morphological matrix. The observed creativity traits: fluency, elaboration, flexibility and originality are based on definitions by Dr. E.P. Torrance. The implementation of a multimedia training for nurturing creativity is also presented. The study also explains the influence of learning styles defined by Honey and Mumford LSI such as activist, reflector, theorist and pragmatist for possible relationship with creativity performance. This book is particularly useful to anybody interested in computer-based creativity technique, multimedia training and learning styles study for documenting creativity performance progress.
Basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) is one of the aromatic plants that show great morphology diversity such as inflorescence, leaf and aroma profiles. In world scale, basils have been widely used as a culinary herb. The essential oils of basils were used as food flavourant, medicines and in perfumery industry. In this study, different accessions of Ocimum basilicum L. from different regions were introduced and cultivated in Malaysia. The morphological variability, chemical compositions and antibacerial activity of the basil essential oils were studied. Morphology of the basils is distinctly differed. The yield of basil essential oils varied. The chemical variability among abroad basil essential oil was extremely broad. Chemical compositions of fixed oil revealed that basil seeds oil contained high linolenic acid. The chemical and biological studies of the basil plant are important in helping to protect the plant biodiversity by introducing as a new agricultural crop in Malaysia which can be used as one of the natural resources in producing medicine and hygienic product.
Shorttitle: The present report is the first thorough study of morphometric variation of 50 species of the genus Odontotermes from Bangladesh, Burma, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore and Sri Lanka. In all 50 species, measurements of 10 parameters were taken and statistically analyzed. The fungus growing termite genus Odontotermes was selected for the present study because it is one of the largest termite genus, widely distributed in the Ethiopian and Oriental zoogeographical regions, of which 50 species are represented in Prof. Muzaffar Ahmad s Collection, presently in the custody of Prof. Dr. Muhammad Saeed Akhtar, Department of Zoology, University of the Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan. The morphometric analysis presented in this report will provide a standard of comparison for specimens from different localities of the range of distribution of that species and other species of the genus Odontotermes. Besides, camera photographs of the specimens have been presented to show variations in morphological attributes of various species.
Bitter Gourd(Momordica charantia L.)belong to family Cucurbitaceae.It originated in India(Indo-Burma Centre of origin)It is cultivated in Malaysia,China,Tropical Africa,North and South America.It is monoecious and highly cross pollinated crop in which a large amount of Variation.The fruits are pickled, canned and dehydrated also.The fruits and seeds of bitter gourd posses cooling, appetitising, stomachic, antipyretic, carminative, antiheliminthic, aphrodisiac and vermifuge properties.They have tremendous application for antiviral therapy especially against HIV infection and act as acytostatic in certain cancers.The breeding objectives can be addressed to satisfy the growers and the consumers must be considered in terms of crop improvement and product improvement. The main criteria for crop improvement are yield, earliness, disease resistance, abiotic stress tolerance, uniformity in size and increase in fruiting period. A speedy crop and product improvement can be brought about bitter gourd by assessing the genetic variability.The morphological characterization and assessment of the variability parameters like coefficient of correlation, path coefficient and genetic divergen.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Rafflesia tengku-adlinii is a parasitic plant species of the genus Rafflesia. It was discovered on Mount Trus Madi, Sabah, Malaysia in 1987. This species was named after Tengku D. Z. Adlin, conservationist and president of the Sabah Society. Rafflesiaceae is a family of parasitic plants found in east and southeast Asia, including Rafflesia arnoldii, the plant with the largest flower of all plants. The plants are endoparasites of vines in the genus Tetrastigma (Vitaceae) and lack stems, leaves, roots, and any photosynthetic tissue. Only the flowers emerge from the roots or lower stems of the host plants. Past taxonomic works have varied as to the classification of Rafflesiaceae. Most traditional classifications that were based entirely on morphological features considered Rafflesiaceae sensu lato (in the broad sense) to include nine genera.
This study mainly investigates the effect of talc and calcium carbonate (CaCO3) as monotonic and hybrid fillers on the thermal, mechanical and morphological properties of polypropylene (PP). The hybrid composites, through the synergistic coalescence of positive characteristics from both fillers, have exhibited exceptionally good strength and toughness as compared to the monotonic composites. The nucleating ability and high aspect ratio of talc contributed towards the increment in strength while the isotropic nature of CaCO3 enhanced the toughness of the hybrid composites. Titanate surface treatments on talc and CaCO3 dramatically enhanced the ductility of both monotonic and hybrid composites. The composites were also subjected to natural weathering in Penang, Malaysia for 6 months. After exposure, the mechanical properties of monotonic composites deteriorated due to severe physical and chemical degradation. However, the hybrid composites exhibited better retention in mechanical properties albeit having undergone some degree of surface-degradation. Filler surface treatments were also effective in preventing further deterioration in composite performance during natural weathering.
