DNA Barcoding west African birds
DNA Barcoding has taken center-stage recently in helping to facilitate species identification; flag specimens that may represent new species; and provide insight into the evolutionary history of life on earth.
Spatio-temporal preference and variation in diet of tropical birds
Food resources are unevenly distributed in time and space, and at the same time season-bound (Oscillational-model). This compels most species to adjust food preference accordingly.
The interaction between avian malaria, immunity and gross sperm morphology
Few studies have shown the impact of pathogens on sperm ultra-structure. In birds, this understanding is limited including that of sexually transmitted diseases especially in the Afrotropical regions
Village weaver: a surrogate for understanding population genetics, pollutants distribution, microbial diversity and sperm behaviour in Afrotropical environment
Human-induced environmental changes have negatively affected most biological systems. These effects cut-across local adaptation of populations, genotoxicity, and decreased reproductive parameters and other impairments that directly reduce survival and fitness of species.
