Abstract

The coastal zone of Chittagong is receiving waste and industrial effluents owing to the industrialization and population growth. The physico-chemical parameters pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, total dissolved solids, salinity of water bodies near the coastal belt of Chittagong provides valuable information on the quality of water. From the coastal belt of Chittagong, six areas (Banskhali, Anowara, Bandar, Sagorica, Vatiary and Kumira) were selected and studied during March-April 2016. The researcher revealed the water bodies was still conducive since most of the physico-chemical parameters investigated fell within the tolerable limits. Moreover, present socio-economic status was also investigated through the coastal belt of Chittagong.

Abstract

The Eastern Himalayas have significant impact on the climate and biodiversity of the Indian Subcontinent. The Himalayan region has shown consistent warming trends in recent times, which can significantly affect the biodiversity, agriculture and local livelihoods. Many scattered hamlets are found in this zone and some of them are proximate to the forests enriched with endemic biodiversity. Icchey Gaon (27.1336oN, 88.5657oE; Altitude 5,600 feet) is a small village situated in Kalimpong district, India in the Eastern Himalayas. Icchey Gaon is situated proximate to Neora Valley National Park, which is located in the Eastern Himalayas as a global ‘biodiversity hotspot’. The village is one of the newest tourist destinations in the Eastern Himalayas. The village area is also a centre of Cinchona plantation since 19th century. The adjacent areas of Icchey Gaon have extensive coverage of Cinchona plantation. The survey work was done in April, 2017 by visiting Icchey Gaon village in Kalimpong, West Bengal. The study focuses on an interdisciplinary understanding of the physical and cultural environment of the forest and mountain areas. The survey work integrates the perspectives of human and social ecology, ecosystem services and sustainable development. Primary data were gathered through field survey and direct contact with common people and authorized centres of the region. Structured questionnaires and semi-structured interviews supplemented by field notes were arranged to collect data from the village areas in Icchey Gaon. The length of each interview was about 40–50 minutes and was supplemented by field notes. Focuses were given on demography, agriculture, livestock management, traditional water management, education, culture, health, waste management, disaster management, biodiversity, joint forest management, ecosystem services and human animal conflict. Biodiversity of the region was documented by visiting the forest areas and the nature interpretation centre situated in Neora Valley National Park. There is an urgent need for implementing an integrated sustainable development system for the conservation of forest ecosystems and traditional human settlements in and around Neora Valley forest. Management strategies have been suggested for conserving the forest biodiversity and socio-economic condition of the hamlet. Bringing local communities into protected area management can have significant positive impact on long-term biodiversity conservation in the transboundary Himalayan landscapes. Extensive study is necessary in the Eastern Himalayas to explore the socio-ecological conditions in the context of climate change.

Abstract

Metal cookware has been used many people for its better thermal conductivity. However this material also has some weaknesses for its reaction with acidic food which will contaminate the food. Metal-base material coated with enamel is one of the solutions. The hard and non-reactive surface has cause this material has been widely used for processing food. Lower thermal conductivity is one of the problems of enamel cookware. The experimental analysis has been conducted to investigate energy efficiency, emission rate and thermal conductivity. The efficiency is calculated by comparing the useful energy (work) with the input energy. The emission rate is calculated by multiply energy consumption with emission factor. Meanwhile the thermal conductivity is calculated by using simply conduction heat transfer equation. Based on the analysis, enamel cookware has much lower thermal conductivity than aluminum cookware. However this physical property does not much affects the efficiency. The most dominant factors which should considered are type of fuel and technology of stove which consume higher energy inefficiently and emits much higher hazardous gas

Abstract

Endophytic fungi can produce secondary metabolites of endophytic fungi isolated from host plants. The purpose of this study is to identify and analyze the sequencing of endophytic fungi isolates with ITS and Beta-tubulin markers and phylogenetic trees. The endophytic fungi isolate DKJ1, DKJ3a, DKJ3c and DKJ4 were successfully isolated from the cardia plant (Bellucia pentamera Naudin) indicated by Aspergillus niger group, Aspergillus fumigatus group and Penicillium sp. The results of the sequencing analysis of isolates DKJ1, DKJ3a, DKJ3c, and DKJ4 were successfully amplified with an annealing temperature of 54ºC with a pair of ITS1-ITS4 primers with a molecular weight of 570 bp and a Beta-Tubulin primer with an annealing temperature of 56.1ºC molecular weight of 550 bp. From the results of identification and analysis of DNA sequencing of endophytic fungi DKJ1, DKJ3a, DKJ3c and DKJ4 with the primary pair of ITS and Beta-tubulin shows that the phylogenetic tree is different from the species obtained. ITS DKJ1 isolates have similarities with the species Aspergillus piperis CBS 112811, ITS DKJ3c has similarities with the species Aspergillus flavus var flavus strain ATCC 16833, ITS DKJ3a has similarities with Penicillium rolfsii strain NRRL 1078 species and ITS DKJ4 has similarities with Penicillium oxalicum NRRL 787 species. Whereas isolate from DKJ1 Beta-Tubulin has similarities with NRRL 4875 Aspergillus tubingensis species, DKJ3c has similarities with species of Aspergillus novoparasiticus strain DTO 223-C4 and DKJ4 has a similarity with Penicillium guaibinensis species. But there are similarities based on Cluster A (Aspergillus Group) and Cluster B (Penicillium Group) on phylogenetic trees.

Abstract

Groundwater iron concentrations were monitored from rural area of the Chandrapur district, Central India during winter, summer and post-monsoon at 36 sampling locations so as to map and quantify its levels. Grab sampling was carried out for groundwater sampling from dug wells (DW) (n=2, 5.55%) and hand pumps (HP) (n=34, 94.44%). Iron concentration was determined by acid digestion method and further analysis by using ICP-OES. Maximum iron concentration in winter was 47.100 mg/L (Ballarpur, HP), 3.825 mg/L (Ballarpur, HP) in summer and 3.714 mg/L (Visapur, HP) in post-monsoon. Average iron concentration in winter, summer, and post-monsoon was 3.522 mg/L, 0.730 mg/L and 0.582 mg/L respectively, which were above the acceptable limit of the Indian Standard (IS) and WHO aesthetic limit for iron (0.3 mg/L). Seasonal variation in groundwater iron concentration was observed in the order of winter>post-monsoon>summer. Distribution of iron with IS revealed a number of samples above the permissible limit and in the order of summer>winter>post-monsoon. In case of a distribution on WHO, JECFA and IOM recommendations, number of samples in high to very high category was in the order of winter>summer>post-monsoon. It can be concluded that seasonal elevated and variable groundwater iron concentration was observed from the study area. A number of samples had the concentration several times above the IS acceptable limit and WHO aesthetic cut-off. The plausible reasons for these observations can be assigned to geology, water source type (HP/DW), space and time, the proximity of water source to minerals and ores present in the earth crust, physicochemical characteristics of water and dissolution and leaching of metal in groundwater
