The evolution and development of tropical agriculture


, : The evolution and development of tropical agriculture. Marches Tropicaux Mediterraneens. Paris, 26: 1306, 267-272

A concise review is presented of the development of agriculture in the former French African territories. The agricultural production in these countries increased by 115 per cent. in the period between 1945 and 1970. Export products increased by 200 per cent., whereas food crops increased only by 50 per cent., compared to an increase in population of 55 per cent.

The n-alkane method was developed in temperate areas as a tool to estimate voluntary intake (VI) at pasture. The present study aimed to investigate the performance of n-alkanes as markers for estimating VI of steers (mean live weight 213 kg) offer...

We report on the spectra and fluorescence lifetimes of four commonly used fluorophores: lissamine rhodamine (LRSC); tetramethyl rhodamine isothiocyanate (TRITC); Texas Red; and cyanine 3.18 (Cy-3). Fluorescence lifetime recordings revealed that th...

Background In this study, we investigated the quality of autologous mononuclear cells (MNC) collected with two different cell separators using standard MNC-apheresis procedure modalities. MNCs were purified by density gradient centrifugation and...
