In the present investigation the effect of stone crushing dust pollution on the growth performance and yield status of Rice (Oryza sativa) was studied in specified land areas of village Arap, Patna. The results indicated that the germination frequency of seeds, shoot length, root length, chlorophyll content, total carbohydrate and protein contents, and grain yield of Rice (Oryza sativa) were severely affected by stone dust pollution.

This study aimed to determine the epidemiological characteristics of imported malaria infections in Al-Ahsa, Eastern province of Saudi Arabia, based on a retrospective analysis of central laboratory records over the last ten-year period from 2005 to 2015. Records showing details of all positive slides for malaria blood films over a 10-year period were analysed. The focus was on identifying the common types of malarial parasites in the area, the nationality and the age of the patients.

The effect of the immunomodulator Natstim ® (lyophilised killed bacterial cells from Escherichia coli 29, Escherichia coli J5, Staphylococus aureus 27/58 at amounts corresponding to 10 10 cells of each species, stabilized with Dextrane 40) on growth performance and two factors of natural humoral immunity serum lysozyme concentrations and the activity of the alternative pathway of complement activation (APCA) was investigated. The results for the experimental group showed a tendency towards higher live weight at 35 and 49 days of age.

Marine litter pollution is common all around the marine and coastal environments. This can affect the normal life of marine fauna as entanglement, over growth of sessile organisms, consumption of micro litters as food particles etc. In the Gulf of Mannar, India, the redundant growth of sponges around the anthropogenic wastes such as fishing lines (nylon rope) and e-waste (Computer RAM) has been reported in August 2014.

A study based on farm household survey was conducted in mid-hills of Himachal Pradesh to gain insights on people s perceptions and adaptations to climate change and variability. Results of the study indicated that 88.9 % of people perceived rise in temperature of the region while 88.4 % perceived a decreasing trend in amount of rainfall. People s perceptions for both maximum temperature and rainfall were in accordance with results of linear regression analysis of weather data of the period from 1995- 2011 collected from meteorological station in the region.

Water is one of the most important precious natural resources required essentially for the survival and health of living organisms. Tungabhadra River is an important tributary of Krishna. It has a drainage area of 71,417 sq km out of which 57,671 sq. km area lies in the state of Karnataka. The study was conducted to measure its
various physico-chemical and bacteriological parameters including levels of algal community. Pollution in water bodies may indicate the environment of algal

Pesticidal stress is very common factor today in human health and animal health. Most of the world s population depends upon fish food. Fishes can serve as bioindicators

The prime objective of the study is to understand the forest diversity in the degraded forests of Burna, Baliagam reserve forests of Srikakulam and Mallavaram Reserve Forest of East Godavari districts of Andhra Pradesh, India.

In the present study larvicidal efficacy of methonol leaf extract of Thevetia peruviana was tested against the aquatic stages of Aedes aegypti.

Surface and ground water are systems linked with each other. In coastal region salanization problem is significant for groundwater contamination. The transition of ground water in to the surface waters contributes a noticeable change in teh ground water environment besides heavy metal cycling. Due to natural and anthropogenic activities the surface waters become contaminated which in turn depletes the ground water quality in the nearby areas of estuaries.
