Francis, Antonio - - 2012
Effect of temperature on the developmental and reproductive biology of the passionvine mealybug, Planococcus minor (Maskell) (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae), was investigated on sprouted potatoes. P. minor was able to develop and complete its life cycle at 20, 25, and 29 [degrees]C. No eggs eclosed at 15 and 35 [degrees]C. The developmental ...

Mesic flatwoods in Florida are increasingly threatened by anthropogenic activities, and although they are known to be important for many species of macrofauna, little is known of the arthropod assemblages that inhabit them. As arthropods can be utilized as indicator taxa, we characterized the assemblages of ground-surface spiders (Araneae) and ...

A new species of scarab beetle, Diplotaxis multicarinata sp. nov., is described from a relict montane forest in the northeastern region of Oaxaca, Mexico. The new species belongs to the simplex species-group, and a new key to this group is presented in order to include the new species.

An ecological life table for eggs and nymphs of Diaphorina citri Kuwayama (Hemiptera: Psyllidae) was constructed with data obtained from orange orchards (Citrus sinensis Osbeck) in 2 regions of the State of Sao Paulo, over 4 generations in the period from XI-2006 to V-2007, comprising spring, summer, and fall seasons. ...

Laboratory based experimental designs typically require large sample sizes of genetically related organisms at the same developmental stage. Several described methods for rearing damselflies have been published, but these methods require laborious techniques when rearing large quantities of damselflies simultaneously. We have developed a relatively easy and inexpensive method for ...

Variations in the conditions accompanying mosquito development and mating can result in females of variable size that have not been inseminated. In this study, we compared the host finding activity of mated and unmated large and small Aedes albopictus fSkuse) and the repellency to these mosquitoes of 25% DEET. The ...

Following registration and the wide-spread use of insect growth regulators (e.g. tebufenozide and novaluron) for control of sugarcane borer, Diatraea saccharalis (F.) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae), in Louisiana, larvae of the ground beetle, Leptotrachelus dorsalis (F.) (Coleoptera: Carabidae, have become more abundant in sugarcane fields. In a survey of the 18 parishes ...

Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR) play major roles in the fast synapse cholinergic transmission in the insect central nervous system, and they are recognized as potential target sites for insecticides. In this study, the full-length cDNA sequence of the nAChR alpha6 subunit (Bdor[alpha]6) was isolated and characterized from the oriental fruit ...

A new leafhopper species, Goniagnathus (Tropicognathus) keralaensis sp. nov., is described from Kerala, India with morphological description, illustrations and photographs. Aedeagal shaft convex at distal caudoventral margin and acute at apex with pair of small ventral subapical processes, pair of long subapical processes on posterior dorsal margin, gonopore large, and ...

Maternal complications are common during and following childbirth. However, little information is available on the psychological, social and economic consequences of maternal complications on women's lives, especially in a rural setting. A prospective cohort study was conducted in southern Rajasthan, India, among rural women who had a severe or less-severe, ...

The first postpartum week is a high-risk period for mothers and newborns. Very few community-based studies have been conducted on patterns of maternal morbidity in resource-poor countries in that first week. An intervention on postpartum care for women within the first week after delivery was initiated in a rural area ...

This paper assesses both out-of-pocket payments for healthcare and losses of productivity over six months postpartum among women who gave birth in Matlab, Bangladesh. The hypothesis of the study objective is that obstetric morbidity leads women to seek care at which time out-of-pocket expenditure is incurred. Second, a woman may ...
Hamadani, J.D. - - 2012
Little is known from developing countries about the effects of maternal morbidities diagnosed in the postpartum period on children's development. The study aimed to document the relationships of such morbidities with care-giving practices by mothers, children's developmental milestones and their language, mental and psychomotor development. Maternal morbidities were identified through ...
Naved, Ruchira - - 2012
This study explored violence against women with chronic maternal disabilities in rural Bangladesh. During November 2006-July 2008, in-depth interviews were conducted with 17 rural Bangladeshi women suffering from uterine prolapse, stress incontinence, or fistula. Results of interviews showed that exposure to emotional abuse was almost universal, and most women were ...

Women in developing countries experience postnatal depression at rates that are comparable with or higher than those in developed countries. However, their personal experiences during pregnancy and childbirth have received little attention in relation to postnatal depression. In particular, the contribution of obstetric complications to their emotional well-being during the ...
Khan, Rasheda - - 2012
Little is known about the physical and socioeconomic postpartum consequences of women who experience obstetric complications and require emergency obstetric care (EmOC), particularly in resource-poor countries such as Bangladesh where historically there has been a strong cultural preference for births at home. Recent increases in the use of skilled birth ...

The burden of maternal ill-health includes not only the levels of maternal mortality and complications during pregnancy and around the time of delivery but also extends to the standard postpartum period of 42 days with consequences of obstetric complications and poor management at delivery. There is a dearth of reliable ...

Worldwide, for an estimated 358,000 women, pregnancy and childbirth end in death and mourning, and beyond these maternal deaths, 9-10% of pregnant women or about 14 million women per year suffer from acute maternal complications. This paper documents the types and severity of maternal and foetal complications among women who ...

We examined 12 hog-nosed skunks (Conepatus leuconotus) from southern Texas and central Tamaulipas, Mexico, during 2004-2009. We amplified the entire mitochondrial-DNA control region (D-loop) from three individuals. Results indicated that these sequences were from distinct maternal lineages with 15 variable sites. However, when reduced and compared to previously published sequences, ...
