ABSTRACT The healing effect of natural honey was evaluated in vivo using the excision wound healing model. Unpurified honey was used to treat burns inflicted on the experimental rats. The healing effects o the honey were compared to that of dermazine, honey-dermazine mixture, and methyla ed spirit. The burns healing agents all shown a progressive decrease in the wound, the healing effect of honey was more than any of the other agents used, w th 100% healed in he 15th day, dermazine atta ned 100% by 21st day, indicating that natural honey has healing property than formulated dermazine, methylated spirit gives 61% by 21st day...
ABSTRACT An investigation was carried out to study the bee le fauna of a cultivated farmland and tropical rainforest plot at the Permanent. Site of Nnamd Azikiwe University, Awka for a twelve-month period using the pitfall echnique. Eight pitfall traps made up of plastic containers with mouth diameters of 9.80 cm and 6.20 cm deep were set monthly at random in the two sampling sites. The traps, which were filled to one third with 5 % formalin, serving a preservative, were recovered after twenty-four hours and the insects caught sorted and counted under a dissecting microscope. Species of beetle obtained from the cultivated plot were Macrocheilus labrosus, Hyparpalus sp., Carpophilus fumatus, Podagrica uniforma, Tetragonothorax sp., Chlaenius sp., Pheropsophus parallus, Silidas apicalis, Tenebroides mauritanicus, Heteroderes sp., and Heterorynchus licas while only Hyparpa us sp., and Mylabris sp., were obtained from the fallow p ot. The result of Fisher's Least Significance Difference (F-LSD) test shows that the pitfall catches of beetles from the two samp ing si es were significant y di erent at p-value of 0.0002 and mean d ference of 3.417. The heterogeneity of the bee le species at the cultivated plot was traced to nature of vegetation and mode of life of the beetle species. The role of certain beetle families as faunal indicators was highlighted. Other factors, which influenced the beetle species at the arable plot and their nontrapping at the forest ecosystem, were also discussed.
In all parts of Igbo land, when death occurs, many steps (procedures) are taken by various categories of people - usually sons, daughters, relations, husbands, in-laws etc from the point of death up to the time of funeral.
STARTUPENUGU ACCELERATE CONFERENCE WAS A HIT BACK TO BACK As you know, the second edition of StartupEnugu which was held on Saturday 2nd December 2017, was a hit back to back. Due to the unexpected turn up experienced at the first edition, De-Dome Enugu, was chosen this time as the venue because of its large capacity to carry greater number of people and it turned out that, even much more persons than expected also turned up for the technology/startup Focused event.
