Similar to efforts for other invasive weeds, insects and disease pathogens, surveys are sometimes used to delineate the extent of population growth or the expansion of new herbicide-resistant weed biotypes. Because there often are a few escaped weeds in herbicide-treated fields, herbicide resistance may not be recognized until the resistant biotype makes up a significant portion of the local population (Vencill et al.

The B and Q biotypes have been introduced recently in Pakistan as none of them were present before 2009[20].But from the results of our study it is clear that the B biotype is found more than 50% in Punjab province of Pakistan.

There seems to be a lack of scientific literature focusing on the relationship between DGC dimensions and gingival biotypes. Therefore, the aims of this study were to estimate the DGC dimensions and determine whether the DGC dimensions vary by gingival biotype.
The Creole biotype showed a smaller body architecture than the two beeds and hybrids with which it was compared, which could be an adaptive response.
But neither Bleuler nor Kraepelin, both of whom relied on clinical observations without any biologic studies, could even imagine the spectacular complexity of the neurobiology of the schizophrenia syndrome and how difficult it is to identify its many biotypes. The monumental advances in neuroscience and neurogenetics, with their sophisticated methodologies, will eventually decipher the mysteries of this neuropsychiatric syndrome, which generates so many aberrations in thought, affect, mood, cognition, and behavior, often leading to severe functional disability among young adults, and untold anguish for their families.
Plants of each biotype were sent to the Herbarium of the Department of Botany of the Federal University of Pelotas to identify the species of Echinochloa.
