This study was conducted in March 2019. Data collection was carried out using the Purposive Random Sampling method in four deliberately determined stations, there are Pulau Kemang, Beringin Sanggul, Bukit Punjung and Sakai. These stations are villages that located in the Napal Licin watershed. The fishs sample were caught using nets, then it were identified in the laboratory. Observation of the semah fish habitat was carried out directly. Water quality parameters ware measured in the site and laboratory. The results showed that population abundance of semah fish at the Napal Licin river was very low, the abundance in the station 1 was 0.03 ind /m<sup>2</sup>, station 3 was 0.06 ind /m<sup>2</sup>, whereas at stations 2 and 4 the abundance were 0, 00 ind/m<sup>2</sup> because there are no semah fish found. The frequency of attendance&nbsp; category of semah fish at the Napal Licin river was very rare, at station 1 the frequency of attendance was 5.5%, station 3 was 11.1% while in station 2 and 4 the frequency of attendance were 0%. The Semah fish species that obtained only 1 species, Tor Tambroides. The degradation of semah fish habitat at the Napal Licin River was mainly caused by the illegal gold mining activities.</p> Andriyanto Copyright (c) 2019 BIOCOLONY 2019-06-20 2019-06-20 2 1 1 7 Eksplorasi Flora Potensial Sebagai Tanaman Hias Di Kawasan Wisata Air Terjun Talalang Jaya Desa Telentam Kabupaten Merangin <p>Research about exploration of potential flora as an ornamental plant in the Talalang Jaya Waterfall area is another aspect of forest product utilization. The forest plant has the potential as an ornamental plant is currently in great demand by the community. In addition to decorating homes or garden filler elements, ornamental plants have developed as export commodities. Exploration activities are proclaiming one of the first steps in the efforts of the conservative tumbling which began to be threatened by the great auction of building auctioneers and the development of industrial plants. This research is descriptive explorative with the roaming method represented randomly. Exploration of potential plants of seamless tanks in the area of Talalang Jaya Waterfall is obtained as many as 14 types, namely: <em>Sonerila oblique, Sonerila pulchella, Begonia sp, Dracaena surculosa, Macodes petola, Agrostophyllum sp, Spathoglottis</em> <em>sp, Costus speciosa sp, Amomum apiculatum, Aglaonema, Alocasia sp, Scindapsus sp, Homalonema sp, </em>dan <em>Dendrobium</em>.</p> Pitri Handayani Copyright (c) 2019 BIOCOLONY 2019-06-20 2019-06-20 2 1 8 14 Karakteristik Morfologi Tanaman Mentha spicata Hasil Induksi Ekstrak Etanolik Daun Tapak Dara (Catharanthus Roseus) <p>Mentha spicata is an herbal plant producing spearmint oil commonly used in the&nbsp; herbal medicine industry, soap, toothpaste and cosmetics. The main place for producing spearmint oil is leaves. To improve the quality of&nbsp; leaves can&nbsp; be achieved by increasing the size of&nbsp; leaf cells through the&nbsp; polyploidization&nbsp; technique with natural mutagen that is ethanolic extract of&nbsp; Tapak dara leaf. This research is an experimental research with Completely Randomized Design with ethanolic extract concentration of 0,1% with application frequency which were 2 drop per day for a day, 2 drop per day for 2 days, and 2 drop per day for 3 days. The observed parameters were number of shoot, number of leaf, stem diameter, leaf area and stem height. Based on the observations, application of ethanolic extract concentration of 0,1% with application frequency 2 drop for a day and 2 drop for 2 days against real controls on the number of root and leaf area parameter. In addition, T-test showed significantly differnt result from the control on stem diameters with ethanolic extract concentration of 0,1%, application frequency 2 drop for 2 days.</p> Rivo Yulse Viza Copyright (c) 2019 BIOCOLONY 2019-06-20 2019-06-20 2 1 15 20 Identifikasi Bakteri Coliform Pada Lalapan Kubis Yang Dijual Pedagang Pecel Lele Kaki Lima Di Sekitar Kampus Stkip Ypm Bangko <p>Food is important both for growth and maintaining life vegetables have nutritional advantages because they are consumed in a raw state so that the nutrients contained in them do not experience denaturation or change. But the benefits of vegetables will not be useful if the vegetables contain E. coli bacteria that enter the digestive tract. The study is a laboratory descriptive experimental research. The study was conducted at a street , treders pecel lele found on Bangko City's Sumatra Cross Road. The number of samples in this study were 13 street treders selling pecel lele. Sample examination was carried out in the STKIP YPM Bangko Biology Education Laboratory. Data were analyzed by univariate. From the results of the study found two positive E. coli cabbage and positive Coliform in all samples of cabbage / cabbage.</p> Rozana Zuhri Copyright (c) 2019 BIOCOLONY 2019-06-20 2019-06-20 2 1 21 28 Studi Populasi Siamang (Symphalangus Syndactylus Raffles, 1821) di Hutan Adat Guguk Kabupaten Merangin Provinsi Jambi <p>This research was motivated by the lack of research on the siamang in hutan Adat Guguk of Merangin Regency, Jambi Province. The purpose of study was to determine and describe the siamang population based on the size of the group, the composition of age and sexual rasio in the forest of Adat Guguk Merangin Regency, Jambi Province. The method used is a concentreated area method with three observation stations and used the Rappid Assesment to record food and rest vegetation of siamang. Data was analyzed descriptively. The result showed that the siamang group found in the study area were 2 groups (5 individuals ) and 1 solitary male. The distribution of age classes in the individual adult phase is 5 individuals the sapling phase was 1 individual and the baby phase werw not found in the siamang group in the hutan Adat Guguk. The seksual ratio value of the siamang group in the adult phase is 1:1, for the solitary male the sexual ratio is 1:0 and ato the juvenile&nbsp; phase could not identyfied the sex of simang because the sexual chaarteristic of had not developed perfectly.</p> Ratna Sari Gultom Apriza Hongko Putra Rozana Zuhri Copyright (c) 2019 BIOCOLONY 2019-06-20 2019-06-20 2 1 29 31 Keanekaragaman Jenis Semut (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) di Hutan Adat Guguk Kabupaten Mrangin Provinsi Jambi <p><em>This study aims to determine the diversity of ants in Hutan Adat Guguk. Research type applied is descriptive quantitative research. This study was conducted on April 2018, in two stages. The first stages is sampling which is done in the Hutan Adat Guguk by making&nbsp; four plots.&nbsp; The second stage is identification of ants carried out by purposive sampling technique, which is by considering the type of vegetation and altitude. The method used is bait trap, pitfall trap, and hand collecting. Collected samples were analyzed with Shannon-Wiener diversity&nbsp; index (H`), index of richeness (DMg), and evennes index (E). The result showed the ants with 2633 individuals were clasified in to 22 species, consisting of 7 genera and 3 subfamilies. The result of data analysis showed the value of the Shannon-Wiener diversity index (H`) is 2,21 (medium criteria), index of richeness (DMg) is 17,05 (high criteria), and evennes index (E) is 0,41 (stable criteria).</em></p> Fajar Ahmad Apriza Hongko Putra Rivo Yulse Viza Copyright (c) 2019 BIOCOLONY 2019-06-20 2019-06-20 2 1 32 42 Analisis Kualitas Air Sungai Batang Merangin Provinsi Jambi <p>The water quality of&nbsp; Sungai Batang Merangin can be monitored through physical, chemical and biological parameters. Water quality research was conducted with temperature research parameters, TSS, PH, DO, COD, metal (Pb, Cd and Hg) and plankton. Water samples were taken in July and August 2017. The result of measurement of water quality parameter of Batang Merangin river was obtained by temperature data of 26-29,5 ° C, maximum TSS 474 mg / L, maximum pH 7, DO maximum of 7.6 mg / L, maximum COD 61.2 mg / l, cadmium metal (Cd) maximum 0.031 mg / l, metal timbale (Pb) averaging &lt;0.02 mg / l, mercury (Hg) averaged &lt;0.001 mg / l, plankton abundance ranged from 31.2-123.2 ind / L, plankton diversity ranged from 0.204-0.672, plankton uniformity between 0.294-0.423, plankton dominance ranged between 0,226-0,706. All physical, chemical and biological parameters are still below the maximum level except for Cadmium metal value at one point according to PP 82 of 2001 and the index value of Diversity is categorized as heavily polluted according to Shannon-Wieners index.</p> Vivi Sisca Leni Marlina Copyright (c) 2019 BIOCOLONY 2019-06-20 2019-06-20 2 1 43 51
