Adults of both species were set up in wooden screened sleeve cages, 50 cm x 50 cm x 53 cm, and fed cut vines of the control plant, Paederia foetida, and its invasive relative Paederia cruddasiana Pain.
Trachyaphthona nigrita and Trachyaphthona sordida, 2 potential biological control agents of Paederia foetida L.
Life history traits and host specificity of Japanese Trachyaphthona species (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), candidates as biological control agents against skunk vine, Paederia foetida (Rubiaceae), in Southeastern United States and Hawaii.
Dulinius conchatus (Hemiptera: Tingidae), considered and rejected as a potential biological control agent of Paederia foetida, an invasive weed in Hawaii and Florida.
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the antihyperglycemic potential of Madhuca indica leaves and Paederia foetida stems in oral glucose tolerance tests in glucose-loaded mice.
The stems of Paederia foetida were collected from Dhaka during June, 2010.
Glucose tolerance property of methanol extract of Madhuca indica leaves and Paederia foetida stems was determined as per the procedure previously described by Joy and Kuttan (1999) with minor modifications.
For Paederia foetida stem methanol extract, mice were divided into six groups of ten mice each.
The stem barks of Aegle marmnelos (voucher # EPL- 106), Saraca asoka (voucher # EPL-624), Paederia foetida (voucher # BNH-25372), and Cassia sophera (voucher # BC-654) were also extracted with absolute ethanol and the obtained yields were 15.
2001), and with those of other plants, including Paederia foetida, Saraca asoka, Hemidesmus indicus and Cassia sophera.
In these assays, Emblica officinalis, Paederia foetida, Saraca asoka, Hemidesmus indicus and Cassia sophera extracts were compared.
These plants were Annona squamosa, Cocos nucifera, Erythrina variegata, Paederia foetida
, and Smilax zeylanica.
