    The page book contains interesting and fact-packed text along with lots of close-up, color pictures of silkworms, silkworm moths, and other insects. Would make a great topic book to go along with insect studies, or even unit studies that touch on Asian history and silk-making. The oviposition number of G6 generation silkworm +Bmovo-1 increased % compared to wild type silkworms (Table 4). Investigation of gonad development showed that ovary weight in silkworm +Bmovo-1 (G7 generation) worms was increased compared to wild type, but testes of silkworm +Bmovo-1 were less heavy than wild type (Figure 5A and 5B).
