    • Abstract


      In recent years increasing number of studies have been undertaken involving modern techniques like DNA hybridization, analysis of enzymic and chromosomal polymorphism in conspecific populations, ecophysiology and behaviour in individual species etc with far reaching implications in the systematics of Entognathous Apterygota, particularly the Collembola. Both scanning and transmission electron microscopes have been used extensively for the study of surface structure, sense organs, spermatozoa and gut providing considerable insight into phylogenetic relationship of higher taxa as well as interrelationships at the generic and lower taxonomic levels.
