Mautam (Mizo for "bamboo death") is a cyclic ecological phenomenon that occurs every 48–50 years in the northeastern Indian states of Mizoram and Manipur, which are 30% covered by wild bamboo forests, as well as Chin State in Myanmar, particularly Hakha, Thantlang, Falam, Paletwa, and Matupi begins with a rat population boom, which in turn creates a widespread famine in those.

Caused by the Rattus rattus species, outbreaks erupted 2 months after bamboo flowering. At IRRI, Dr. Htwe studied the biology and population dynamics of Rattus tanezumi and Rattus argentiventer in two provinces in the Philippines as a basis to develop ecologically based rodent management.

She also studied the factors that influence the. In western Argentina, the bamboo, Chusquea culeou, flowered massively last spring (October-November, ), from San Carlos de Bariloche to Lago Puelo (° to °S).It also flowered in a separate area further to the south in the Aysen-Coihaique area of Chile (≈45°S).

She studied the impacts of rodent outbreaks throughout Chin State in Myanmar inwhich were believed to be the most serious in 50 years. Caused by the Rattus rattus species, outbreaks erupted 2 months after bamboo flowering. Rodent Pests in Southeast Asia Grant R. Singleton and David A. Petch Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research Canberra p13 After visiting the areas affected by the plague and talking to government officials and villagers, we were not convinced of this link be-tween the bamboo flowering and rodent outbreaks.

MAS said that rodent damage to upland rice started in August following massive bamboo flowering, similar to the and occurrences. Working and learning together. Rodent outbreaks are not confined to the upland regions. This year, high crop losses because of rats were also reported in the Philippines and Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Catching Rats (on Film) rodent outbreaks caused by mass bamboo flowerings aren't well studied. For us filmmakers, it was an exciting opportunity to capture new scientific discoveries in real.

Bamboo is a perennial flowering plant with a distinctive life cycle: many bamboo species remain in the vegetative phase for decades, followed by mass synchronous flowering and subsequent death.

The phenomenon of bamboo flowering is not fully understood, but its periodicity is a major research focus. Here, we collected information on bamboo flowering events by investigating historical documents.

The local farmers call it a flood; an inundation that happens every 50 years. Others believe it to be an act of God, an inevitability. It isn't water flooding the precious farmland in north-eastern India, but rats. A once in a generation, gigantic plague of rats, that ruins crops and leaves people starving.

A rat army so big, so mythical, that until now some scientists did not believe it was. The next bamboo flowering related rodent outbreaks are expected somewhere during the period – Large-scale devastation of crops has also been reported from other regions. For example, rodent upsurges in Gujarat and Rajasthan during –02, –14, –71, –76 and –98 have been documented by Mittal and Vyas ( Cited by: 1.

Mautak will flower. The abundance of seeds in moist areas then invites rats and rodents, whose fertility, as nature would have it, increases when they feed on bamboo seeds.

records a clear relation between rodent outbreaks in South America since in the 16th century and bamboo flowering and high rainfall.

The linkage between Melocanna bamboo flowering and rodent outbreaks: an The impact of rodent management on rice yield in lowland irrigated areas The effects of population bottlenecks on dental variation in arvicoline The effect of urbanization on the growth indices and parasite infestation.

In Bangladesh, Belmain's research included the causes and effects of rodent population outbreaks, an infrequent year phenomenon driven by semelparous bamboo flowering. The most recent cycle started in in India, reaching Bangladesh in   Bamboo flowers gregariously, which means that all the culms of a particular species flower together.

The hills are dominated by two species: mau, which flowers approximately every thirty years; and thing, which flowers every forty-seven. Flowering triggers a spike in rodent populations, which thrive on the explosion of seeds.

Testing among evolutionary scenarios for the invasion of Black rats Rodent population outbreaks associated with bamboo flowering in Chin State, Myanmar. The phenomenon of rodent outbreaks linked with gregarious bamboo flowering in North East India was illucidated and methods of their management through surveillance methods are indicated to benefit the field extension functionaries.

Context Rodents are one of the major constraints in Asian rice production, both in pre- and post-harvest. Rodents are often perceived by farmers in developing countries to be consistently outsmarting humans – a belief that needs to be overcome.

Ecologically based rodent management (EBRM) is a possible solution to manage rodent populations effectively, which in turn can help sustain food Cited by:   Rodent population outbreaks following gregarious bamboo flowering is a real and scientifically accepted phenomenon occurring in the Bengal Bay eco-region (India, Bangladesh, Myanmar) as well as in other parts of the world where bamboo naturally grows.

The dominant bamboo species in the region flowers on a year cycle. Following the rats' sudden eruption, destruction and famine devastate the villages in their wake.

Captured for the first time on film, NOVA and National Geographic document this rodent population explosion in vivid detail. You ll also explore how scientists are unraveling the connections between the bamboo flowering and rat outbreaks.

Additionally, focal observations on bamboo clumps and seed traps were used to verify the predatory impact of S. frontalis on M. neesii seeds. frontalis was present in 6 out 18 point counts in M.

neesii clumps. The seedeater behaved territorially in bamboo clumps and presented a mean predation rate of bamboo seeds/minute. F.M. Jaksic, M. LimaMyths and facts on ratadas: Bamboo blooms, rainfall peaks and rodent outbreaks in South America Austral Ecol., 28 (), pp. Google ScholarCited by: 5.

Microorganisms, insects, and rodents represent the majority of pests affecting cultural heritage. These three subtypes are significant risks in the north-temperate Canadian environment. Other pests, such as roosting birds, molluscs (marine borers), bats, other invasive mammals, lizards, etc., may be significant despoilers in specific locations.

The book is completed by a comprehensive presentation of the properties of bamboo, its utilization and its preservation. Bamboo is the fastest-growing and most versatile plant on Earth.

For centuries it has played an indispensible part in the daily life of millions of people in tropical countries. Beekeeping and gardening go naturally together. Squash, cucumbers, apples, melons and strawberries are just a handful of the many crops that rely on bee pollination.

And then there's the honey. A single, healthy hive can yield 50 to pounds of this sweet, golden elixir. I'm proud to say that my first "bee installation" went smoothly. I kept. Since the recognition of hantavirus as the agent responsible for haemorrhagic fever in Eurasia in the s and, 20 years later, the descovery of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in the Americas, the genus Hantavirus has been continually described throughout the World in a variety of wild animals.

The diversity of wild animals infected with hantaviruses has only recently come into focus as a Cited by:. However, there is a difference in flowering cycle/period on different bamboo species found throughout the country.

The bamboo flowering is such a natural phenomenon which cannot be checked and predicted accurately by human being. Basing on the flowering habits, bamboo has been classified into three types. (1).Bambu adalah tanaman jenis rumput-rumputan dengan rongga dan ruas di batangnya.

Bambu memiliki banyak tipe. Nama lain dari bambu adalah buluh, aur, dan eru. Di dunia ini bambu merupakan salah satu tanaman dengan pertumbuhan paling cepat.(tanpa takson): Angiospermae.
