Tables with appropriate title should conform to the page size avoiding vertical lines.
 Measurements and Equations:
For all measurements, SI units must be used. Equations and formula should be presented properly in the text.
Scientific Names:
Scientific names should be given for all organisms. Chemical names and trade names should be given for all chemicals used e.g. herbicides, insecticides etc.
Standard abbreviations should be used.
Citations and References:
Citations should include author(s) and year of publication. Items inthe reference list should be referred to in the text by inserting within parentheses, the year of  publication after the author’s name. If there are more than two authors, the first author should  be cited followed by ‘
