Isolation, Characterization And Symbiotic Performance Evaluation Of Soybean (glycine Max) Nodulating Rhizobia From Different Districts Of Bangladesh
Rhizobia can meet up nitrogen requirement of legumes by biological nitrogen fixation through symbiosis. The main objective of this study was to find out the morpho-physiological diversity of indigenous soybean nodulating rhizobia and to find effective rhizobial strains for enhancing better soybean production at different environmental conditions. Fourteen... Continue here

Strategies For Pollen Harvest And Storage For Increasing Pollination And Yield In Hybrid Rice Seed Production Of Mestiso 19 Cultivar
Attainment of high seed yield in hybrid rice seed production is a function of the amount of pollen that the male parent can shed during pollination. Low pollen load of the male parent (TG101M) of hybrid rice, Mestiso 19 leads to low seed yield which limits the number of hybrid rice seed growers engaged in its hybrid seed production. Artificial pollination, through... Continue here

Application Of Microbial Fuel Cells In The Degradation Of 2,4,5,6-tetrachloroisophthalonitrile (chlorothalonil)
Pesticide’s persistence in the environment due to the relatively slow degradation mechanism leads to their bio-accumulation which in turn has adverse impacts on human health. Bio-remediation involves utilization of microbes from nature to the breakdown of organic molecules. The purpose of this study is to investigate the potential of microbes in degrading...

Adsorption, Kinetics And Thermodynamic Studies Of Lead (ii) Ions From Aqueous Solutions Onto Bio-adsorbent Prepared From Locust Bean Seed Shell
Adsorption has been widely used for the removal of heavy metals from waste water due to its availability, efficiency, profitability and its low cost of operation. In this study, locust bean seed shell powder prepared from locust been seed shell (LBSS) was used as adsorbent. Batch adsorption experiments were carried out in order to study the effect of process... Continue here

Impact And Control Of Anthropogenic Pollution On The Ecosystem – A Review
An ecosystem borders on overall complex network of interconnections between the environments within a habitat. To make the ecosystem substantially habitable for both plants and animals, contaminations into the natural environment that could result to adverse changes to it must not be introduced. Human activities can influence nature generally and, on an... Continue here

Morphological And Physiological Characterization Of Nitrogen Fixing Rhizobia Isolated From Country Bean (lablaba Perpureus) Of Narail, Bangladesh
Nitrogen is one of the important constituents of the plants. It is fixed in legume plants from the atmosphere by the association of beneficial gram negative soil bacteria named rhizobia. This study aimed to distinguish the morpho-physiological characteristics of naturally growing rhizobia having higher environmental and external stress tolerance. Twenty-two... Continue here

Qualitative Assays And Quantitative Determinations Of Xylanolytic Enzymes Of Wood Rot Fungi From Dagaga And Gambo Forests, Ethiopia
Xylan is a second widely available polysaccharide in nature and can be enzymatically degraded for the production of sugars. The complete biodegradation of xylan needs synergistic action of different xylanolytic enzymes. In this research, potential xylanolytic activities of the wood rot basidiomycete fungi from Dagaga and Gambo forests were screened. Xylanases of... Continue here

Quality Assessment Of Local And Imported Honey Sold In Katsina State, Nigeria
The quality of different brands of honey sold in Katsina state was investigated. The samples were obtained from supermarkets, local shops and local homes, as part of local and imported brands. Several physico-chemical parameters such as water content, sugar content, pH, ash content, hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF), acidity and refractive index were evaluated.... Continue here

Study On Prevalence Of Ovine Paramphistomiasis In Kutaber Woreda, South Wollo, Amhara Region, Ethiopia
A study was conducted to identify the current status of Paramphisthomum infections in small ruminants in Kutaber. A total of 384 fecal samples from small ruminants were collected and subjected to sedimentation technique. Out of 384 fecal samples inspected, 150 (39.1%) were positive for Paramphisthomum. The prevalence rates of 36.5 and 30.8% were observed in good... Continue here

Characterization, Antimicrobial And Toxicological Properties Of Silver Nanoparticles Synthesized From Ocimum Gratissimum Leaves
Ocimum gratissimum leaves were used in the synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNps) that were non-toxic and also possessed antimicrobial properties against clinically isolated pathogenic strains. Some bioactive agents in the aqueous extract of Ocimum gratissimum leaves (AEOgL) were identified. AgNp synthesis was carried out by incubating the AEOgL and 1 mM AgNO3.... Continue here

Genotoxicity, Behaviour And Erythrocytic- Oxidative Stress Modulation Of Clariid Catfish To Acetamenophen N-(4-hydroxyphenyl) Ethanamide Ec Number: 203-157-5 | Cas Number: 103-90-2
This study was undertaken to evaluate the acute toxicity and sub-acute paracetamol toxicity-induced nuclear aberration, antioxidative stress enzyme activities such as CAT, SOD, LPO, GPX of Clarias gariepinus. Three hundred (300) juveniles with average weight of 50.96±1.3g were procured from a reputable fish farm in Enugu to the Fisheries Research Laboratory... Continue here

Assessment Of The Toxicity Of Carica Papaya Plant Powders Against Sitophilus Zeamais (mots) (coleoptera: Curculionidae) On Maize Seeds During Storage
The toxicity of Carica papaya plant parts powder (leaf, stem bark, root and flower) at different dosages (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 g) against Sitophilus zeamais infesting stored maize grains were assessed at the Biology Laboratory of the Federal College of Agriculture, Ibadan. Treatments were admixed with 30 g of maize grains, infested with 10 teneral adults of... Continue here

Assessment Of Population Structure And Genetic Diversity Study Of Landraces And Elite Rice Varieties Commonly Grown In Nigeria
A set of 21 rice genotypes including both elite varieties and landraces were characterised based on their population structure using genomic simple sequence repeat (gSSR) markers. A model-based method was used to delineate clusters of individuals based on their genotypes at multiple loci using a Bayesian approach. The population structure analysis separated the 21...
