  1. Abstract,International Conference on Mechanical Engineering, 2019 This research aims to develop a burning tank for making charcoal and experiment for the wood vinegar burning process using wood as raw material. To design, and operation of such a burning tank for making charcoal require a detailed...
     
  2. Abstract,International Journal of Research and Review, 2019 Natural extracts like pyroligneous acid (wood vinegar) is evaluated for pest repellant action of Abelmoschus esculentus and Solanum melongena. Wood species as Gliricidia sepium, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Acacia leucophloea, and Azadirachta...
     
  3. Abstract,International Journal of Plant, Animal and Environmental Sciences, 2019 Wood vinegar (WV), a byproduct from wood pyrolysis, is a natural, safe, nontoxic, cheap and versatile product suitable for use as additive on animal diets, as growth promoters and preventive antibiotic. This study...
     
  4. Interactive key and information resources for flowering plants of the Neotropics Neotropikey is an international project based at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, developing identification and information resources for the flowering plants of the Neotropical region (tropical South and Central...  
  5. Abstract Leaf‐cutter ants are a prominent feature in Neotropical ecosystems, but a comprehensive assessment of their effects on ecosystem functions is lacking. We reviewed the literature and used our own recent findings to identify knowledge gaps and develop a framework to quantify the effects of...
     
  6. Abstract,Molecular Ecology, 2017 Leafcutter ants propagate co-evolving fungi for food. The nearly 50 species of leafcutter ants (Atta, Acromyrmex) range from Argentina to the USA, with the greatest species diversity in southern South America. We elucidate the biogeography of fungi cultivated by...
     
  7. ‘Bio-irrigation’ - How it works The shrubs have deep tap roots that suck up water from the wet deep sub-soil and deposit this small amount of water in the dry upper soil layers at night when photosynthesis stops. Surrounding crops take advantage of some of this water that is drawn up. This is...  
  8. Two long-term experiments (11 years) showed the intriguing ability ofG. senegalensis and P. reticulatum(optimized at ~1000 to 1500 shrubs ha-1 with residue returnedto soil) to dramatically increase yields of groundnut and millet, with or without fertilizer additions and maintain yields in drought...  
  9. On the face of it, a leafcutter ant’s nest is a perfect picture of harmonious relationships. Worker ants go out to forage for fresh leaf material that they use togrow a fungus(Leucoagaricus gonglyophorous). In return for a mulchy compost of fresh leaves, the fungus breaks down the plant material...
     
  10. Brochure Worms you buy from a worm farm or supplier are generally either Red Wiggler Worms, Eisenia fetida, or European Night Crawlers, Eisenia hortensis. But many worms are called Composting Worms. The Red Wiggler, Eisenia fetida, is best as is lives in the top 18” of the soil and eats 1/2 its...
