Introduction
Research on the topic related to the Golden Apple Snail in Malaysia. First study was on the temperature and photoperiodism effects on the egg hatchability of the snail. Later, we extend our research on the toxicity effect of several plant extracts to the egg hatchability. Now is working on the feeding rate of the snail fed on several types of plants and estimating the spread potential of the invasiveness of the snail in the rice field using ArcGIS and hydrodynamic model, MIKE 21.

Article
Full-text available
Food connoisseurs have consumed rabbit meat that is popularly known as broilers or roasters for centuries. The literature shows that China, North Korea, Italy, Russia, and Ukraine are the five countries with the highest rabbit meat production. On the other hand, cuniculture entrepreneurship in South East Asia, particularly Malaysia, has been slow i...

Wetland ecosystems act as natural freshwater purification systems, but their rich biodiversity is being threatened with the introduction of the non-native freshwater snail, Pomacea canaliculata. This study was conducted to measure the herbivory effects and growth rate of P. canaliculata on common macrophytes: Ipomoea aquatica, Ipomoea batatas, Pand...

Malaysia's giant freshwater prawns, locally known as udang galah (Macrobrachium rosenbergii), have never dwindled in demand. From aquaculture reports, udang galah farming is a lucrative endeavor resulting in many udang galah farming ventures, including hatcheries for larvae production. The supply of prawns has been limited for various reasons. Udan...

In anticipation of post-pandemic economic growth, alternative agriculture provides another source of side income for farmers who want a different crop to cultivate. In the case of the Kaempferia parviflora, the economic feasibility indicates a positive venture. The paper discusses how alternative agriculture can establish the capacity building as a...

The Pomacea canaliculata, locally known as siput gondang in Malaysia, is considered a pest in agriculture. However, the internet searches revealed that the pestle-prepared recipe using siput gondang is a delicacy and a food source for some rural communities, although the snails are known parasite carriers. Therefore, the paper aims to provide narra...

Dye is extensively used in industries, such as textile, paper printing, food, and leather. Dye causes significant effects on living organisms and the environment. Current dye treatment methods are inefficient in decolourization as the dye is highly persistent. Efficiency in the decolourization of dye is a challenge for industries as well as for was...

The study was conducted to assess the effect of Zingiber officinale and Carica papaya extract on the egg hatchability of the golden apple snail, Pomacea canaliculata. This is a freshwater snail that is considered a pest in agriculture as well as natural ecosystems. In combating the population of the aforementioned pest, this study evaluates the use...

The Golden Apple Snail (GAS), Pomacea canaliculata is an invasive species that has become a serious pest organism in rice fields in Southeast Asia since 1980s. This study was conducted to assess the hatchability of eggs under a combination effect of temperature and light. The clusters of eggs were exposed to different temperature (28 o C, 30 o C, 3...
Article
Zooplankton communities are an essential component of marine and freshwater food webs. However, there is still a relative lack of information on how these organisms behaviourally respond to a range of abiotic and biotic stressors. Specifically, the behaviour of the cladoceran Daphniopsis australis, a species endemic to South-eastern Australian sali...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The biological responses of tropical cladoceran, Ceriodaphnia cornuta fed on different algae diets were investigated under laboratory conditions. Two types of microalgae, Chlorella (C) and Scenedesmus (S) were given as mono-algal diet and multi-algal diet (CxS). The different types of algae diets have significantly altered the biological responses...

Background: Medium is one of the majorfactors for controlling the growth performance of microalgae. Growth performances of microalgae are very important for production of essential nutrients by these organisms. In this study,two different species of freshwater microalgae, Chlorellasp. and Scenedesmussp. were cultured in different media at 28±2 ºC u...

Antimicrobial and antifungal are the most significant weapons in fighting infections and have greatly benefited the healthrelated quality of human life. In this study, antimicrobial and antifungal effects of Local Lawsonia inermis against bacteria isolated from human mouth and scalp fungus isolated from human head (dandruff) were investigated by us...

The effect of algal species on the life history of the euryhaline cladoceran. Daphniopsis australis was investigated under laboratory conditions. Three algal species. Tetraselmis suecica (T). Nannochloropsis oculata (N) and Isochrysis tahitian (I) were used to form three mono-alga species and four multi-algae species (T x N, I x N, I x T and I x T...
Article
Temperature and salinity variations affect aquatic biodiversity by altering the life history of poikilotherms and regulating their population dynamics. This study aimed to reveal the response of the brackish cladoceran, Daphniopsis australis exposed to three temperatures (16, 20 and 25 degrees C) cross-classified with three salinities (17, 22 and 2...
Article
Full-text available
The roles of male and food density in regulating female performance were investigated in the brackish cladoceran, Daphniopsis australis. Parthenogenetic females and ephippial females were tested using a 2×4 factorial experiment involving the presence and the absence of a male cross-classified with nil, low, medium and high food densities. For parth...
Book
The thermal and halo tolerances of Daphniopsis australis were investigated with individuals from a single clone under laboratory conditions. Measurements of acute tolerance were used to estimate the range of tolerance and indicate the optimum range of survival. Acute tolerance was compared between adult and juvenile over time. In both temperature a...
