A peculiar roosting habit of bats

, : A peculiar roosting habit of bats. Quart Rev Biol 7(3): 307-312

Palm leaves are cut symmetrically on the under-surface so that the distal zone of the leaf droops to form a shelter. This cutting is done by the teeth of bats (Uroderma). Several spp. of introduced palms in the Panama Canal Zone have been affected. No similar habit has been reported previously for bats, and no bat has been known hitherto to make a shelter for itself.

Ceramidase, an enzyme which both hydrolyzes and synthesizes the amide bond of ceramide (N-acyl sphingosine), was isolated from rat brain and purified (about 300 fold) by salt fractions, proteolysis and gel filtration. To test whether the hydrolyti...

A simple, rapid and sensitive flow injection chemiluminescence (CL) method is described for the determination of naproxen. It was found that strong CL signal was generated when naproxen was mixed with KMnO4 and Na2SO3 in neutral aqueous medium. Un...
