  The proximate and mineral composition of raw and boiled African locust bean (Parkia biglobosa) was determined. The termicidal properties of the aqueous and acetone extracts of the beans were also investigated. There were variations in the proximate and chemical composition of the raw and boiled samples. Cadmium, nickel, lead, cobalt and copper were leached out of the seed during boiling. The aqueous and acetone extracts of boiled P. biglobosa had no effect on termites, while they were affected by extracts of raw P. biglobosa. The aqueous and acetone extracts exhibited concentration dependent termicidal activity. However the aqueous extract was more active than the acetone extract. Termites died within 40 and 110 min when exposed to paper pads treated with 0.4 g mL-1 of aqueous and acetone extracts, respectively.

  Serological diversity of 178 RYMV isolates was determined by phylogenetic analysis of Serological Differentiation Indices (SDI) data generated from antigen coated-plate enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ACP-ELISA) using 26 RYMV Polyclonal antisera. These RYMV isolates were obtained from northern, southern, eastern and western Cote d`Ivoire. All the RYMV isolates was classified into three main serogroups (Sg1, Sg2 and Sg3) and six subgroups (Sg1a, Sg1b, Sg2a, Sg2b, Sg3a and Sg3a). This indicates the existence and levels of serodiversity among RYMV isolates in Cote d`Ivoire. These results provide evidence of a possible relationship between serological property, host plant and ecological origin of RYMV isolates. Phylogenetic classification of each RYMV isolate defined by SDI data in ACP-ELISA is potentially useful in epidemiological studies to assess isolate identity and interaction as well as to assist breeding programs aiming at the development of cultivars with durable resistant to RYMV in Cote d`Ivoire.
