Transmission electron microscopic observation showed deformation in nucleus and mitochondria (Figure 1.7), damage in rough endoplasmic reticulum, and vacuolations in stomach of A. testudineus (Figure 1.8), but only deformed mitochondria and vacuolations were observed under field condition and damages were less than laboratory condition (Figure 1.9).
Present study is reporting first time the toxicity of the sulfonylurea-based commercial agrochemical, Almix with regard to histological and ultrastructural observations through scanning and transmission electron microscopy in A. testudineus under field and laboratory conditions on comparative basis, although Senapati reported histopathological alterations under laboratory condition in oesophagus, buccopharynx, stomach and intestine of A.
Therefore, based on this finding and supported by several previous studies, it was approved that malathion, dichlorvos and temephos were poisonous to A. testudineus and these pesticides exert their action by inhibiting AChE activity.
2) in analysed samples was 0.95 [+ or -] 12, whereas, Nargis (2006) foundthat ash content was foundto vary from 1.32 to 2.15% with an average of 1.72 [+ or -] 0.07% formales and 1.45 to 2.21% for females (1.78 [+ or -] 0.06%) A. testudineus.
