Intensive surveys conducted at Samaru and its environs in the northern Guinea Savanna of Nigeria between October 2000 and September 2002, indicated that Bemisia tabaci (Genn.) infests forty two (thirty three cultivated and seven wild) species of plants. Twenty nine of the plants were found in upland, two in the lowland and eleven in both upland and lowland (fadama) areas. Heavily infested plants were distorted, chlorotic and stunted. Symptoms of virus infection were associated with some of the infested plants. This is the first comprehensive report of hosts of B. tabaci in Nigeria.

Since the incorporation of the Nigerian economy into the World Capitalist System, the indigenous social structure was fundamentally restructured. This restructuring was (and is still) affecting the family institution in its performance of the most important task of youth socialization leading to cases of what have been described as child abuse, urban violence, working children and, even, sexually deteriorating/ transmitted infections as a result of irresponsible sexual behavior among the youth. If the situation persists, what are the implications for the future of the individual youth and the family? How can the transition being experienced by the family be controlled to positively influence the future of the youth and, by implication, the society as a whole? This paper attempts to provide answers to these questions.

An investigation of harmful algae in Nigerian coastal waters was made between 1996 and 2004. Samples were collected from the coastal states of the Atlantic Ocean in the Gulf of Guinea. The states were Lagos, Ondo, Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers states. A total of 24 taxa were identified and classified into three divisions, namely Bacillariophyta, Cyanophyta and Dinophyta. The Dinophyta represented the bulk of the algae comprising 18 taxa in the genera Ceratium, Dinophysis, Gymnodinium, Peridinium, Protoperidinium and Prorocentrum. Some of the species are capable of producing noxious blooms with attendant negative implications for the ecosystems, ecology, economy, recreation and human health.

In vitro susceptibilities of Scedosporium apiospermum isolates recovered from clinical and environmental samples in Nigeria were tested against ten conventional antifungal agents, namely: amphotericin B, nystatin, flucytosine, itraconazole, posaconazole, fluconazole, voriconazole, micafungin, ketoconazole, and terbinafine using the CLSI M38-A broth dilution reference method. The isolates showed varied response/sensitivities to the antifungal agents tested. This is probably the first documented testing of Scedosporium apiospermum isolates from Africa in general and Nigeria in particular against a broad range of conventional antifungal agents.
