Division of Acarology Department of Zoology University of Calicut Kerala, India 673635
Bambusa gigantea rare species feeding trials life stages development duration


The importance of oribatid mites in soil ecosystem for biodegradation of plant litter to increase soil fertility and crop development is a known fact. However, biodegradation of woody plant materials  appears to be a difficult task to most mites. This study concentrated on the developmental biology of a mite which prefers plant material of woody nature.
