Forest Biodiversity & Conservation

Posted on Updated on

Forests are biologically diverse systems, representing some of the richest biological areas on Earth. They offer a variety of habitats for plants, animals and micro-organisms. However, forest biodiversity is increasingly threatened as a result of deforestation, fragmentation, climate change and other stressors. Tropical, temperate and boreal forests offer a diverse set of habitats for plants, animals and micro-organisms. Consequently forests hold the majority of the world’s terrestrial species. However these biologically rich systems are increasingly threatened, largely as a result of human activity. To know more visit

Obesity is a common nutritional disorder in dogs and it has adverse effects on health and longevity. However, a simple and noninvasive method to assess the regional distribution of body fat is not available.. read more @ https://www.scitechnol.com/veterinary-science-medical-diagnosis.php

Warfare Ecology: Marine Crabs as Bio-indicators of Heavy Metal Pollution

Posted on

The comparative study of persistent toxic metal levels of two species of crab Cardiosoma armatum and Callinectes amnicola were studied. Work provided information on the concentration of Cd, Zn, Ni, Fe and Pb in the limb, shell, flesh and gills of the two species of crab, so also their environment- water and sediments. This analysis will help in assessing accumulation of metals in these organisms. Concentrations of metals observed in the crab samples were lower than the WHO permissible level for foods.

Walking Sideways: The Remarkable World of Algae

Posted on Updated on

The use of algal phycobiliproteins and polyphenols as food ingredients, supplement or antioxidants is very promising future trends for human health and for food stability. A group of scientist evaluated and compared the antiradical and antioxidant activities of extracts from Spirulina platensis. Three extracts (Water, absolute methanol and 50% methanol in water) were analysed for the total Phenolic compounds, phycobiliprotein content: Antiradical and antioxidant activities were evaluated using 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and 2, 2-azinobis (3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) radical scavenging methods.
