This study evaluated the Zooplankton Composition of Gadar Tamburawa river in Dawakin
Kudu Local Government, Kano State. Monthly variation and composition of zooplankton
parameters of the river were studied for a period of six months (July – December 2014).
Result showed monthly variations of means (lowest-highest) values ranges between
0.00±0.00 in December to 1.33±0.88 in August and September for Protozoa, 2.00±0.00 in
December to 8.33±3.84 in August for Rotifers, where Cladocera had 0.00±0.00 in July,

This paper studied the reliability characteristics of a two-dissimilar unit cold standby
system with three modes (normal, partial failure and total failure) by using kolmogorov
forward equation method, in which explicit expressions of the mean time to system
failure (MTSF ), steady state availability ( ) T A ¥ , the busy period ( ) P B ¥ and profit
function ( ) F P ¥ are derived. The failure rate and repair time are assumed to have
exponential distribution. It was found that (MTSF ), ( ) T A ¥ and ( ) F P ¥ decreases with
