    » Abstract: The variation exhibited within populations of the Date Palm (Phoenix dactylifera, L) in Nigeria would appear to suggest that these populations originated from seedlings. The distribution of the palms in the arid and semi arid Sudan and Sub Sudan ecological zones of Nigeria suggests that climatic factors like low rainfall, low humidity and high temperature may have favoured their adaptati...Continue Reading »

    » Abstract: Evapotranspiration is a major component of the water balance in any ecological system. Several methods have been proposed to estimate potential evapotranspiration in different parts of the world. However, the success of most of them has been limited because of uncertainties in the reliability of the methods under subhumid tropical environment. A study was therefore undertaken at the Inst...Continue Reading »
