Conclusion: Targeting the man-made and temporary larval habitats could results in the effective anopheline mosquitoes larvae control.
Mortensen documented larval musculature in the cidaroids Eucidaris metularia (Lamarck, 1816) (subclass Cidaroidea) (1937) and Prionocidaris baculosa (Lamarck, 1816) (subclass Cidaroidea) (1938).
Nevertheless, in other previous studies alsoshowed that salinity has the greatest effects on the survival, embryonic as well as larval development of sea urchins (Roller and Stickle, 1993; Metaxas, 1998; Forcucci and Lawrence, 1986).
In this study, 6 larval groups from 30 eggs were surveyed and also predator oviposition date, incubation period, larval stages, pupa and adult period were determined (Table I).
The data collected on the effect of different hosts on total larval duration, pupal period, adult longevity and total developmental period were summarized in Table 1 and Figure 1 clearly suggested that larval duration was highest in case of C.
larval mortality, development and larval dispersal, during the rearing of codling moth and to quantify toxicity of various Bt concentrations in maize meal diets.
To measure both larval food and its pollen content, we collected food stored in 20 randomly selected brood cells per colony.

Fish larvae from the upper Parana River: do abiotic factors affect larval density?
During the larval survey, environment variables recorded for each habitat were: (i) habitat type, (ii) substrate type--classified as clear, clear with debris, muddy, greenish, brownish, pinkish and reddish (iii) canopy cover--classified as open, shaded or partially shaded, (iv) water conditions--pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen and turbidity.
Closed estuaries experience greater seasonal variation in environmental conditions than is seen in estuaries perennially open to marine influence, and such variation is known to significantly influence larval development (McCormick and Molony 1995, Green and Fisher 2004).
