Bio-logical investigations on a Saharan species of Solpugida, Othoes saharae Panouse


, : Bio-logical investigations on a Saharan species of Solpugida, Othoes saharae Panouse. Mem Mus Nat Hist Natur Nouv Ser Ser A Zool 43: 1-124

A consideration of the ecol-ogy and ethology, growth and reproduction of O. saharae reveals that 6 or 8 days after exuviation, the animal enters a period of activity, with a nycthemeral rhythm of activity and hunting at night. During this period, it eats incessantly, as rapidly as it can catch the prey. After a period of 2 or 3 days it reaches repletion and refuses nourishment. This lasts for about 20 days, the body temperature being maintained at 40[degree]C. Subsequently, a molting position is adopted and another exu-viation takes place. A discussion of the central nervous system; the hematocytes and hematopoiesis and nephrocytes; the muscles; the coxal glands; and the digestive tube and digestion includes details on changes in the nervous system which occur at different developmental stages based on histophysiological studies.

The effects of intraperitoneal insulin on the food intake have been determined in infant rats up to weaning. It was found that intraperitoneal (IP) insulin reduced the milk intake of 13 and 17 day-old pups for three hours after treatment. In 5, 9...

To study the effects of smoking on wound healing, the authors retrospectively analyzed the records of 132 patients (121 women and 11 men) who had undergone abdominoplasty in the previous 5 years. All patients had received a full abdominoplasty, wi...

In this paper, we consider the problem of extracting the desired signals from noisy measurements. This is a classical problem of signal recovery which is of paramount importance in inertial confinement fusion. To accomplish this task, we develop a...
