Effect of Freezing on Some Plant Toxins and Micronutrients in the Leaves of Amaranthus Cruentus

Amaranthus cruentus is an important leafy vegetable, grown throughout the temperate and tropical regions of the world. It is an herbaceous annual leafy vegetable that can be produced for fresh market in 4 – 6 weeks after planting (Schippers, 2000). The vegetable can be produced all the year round depending on the availability of water. …

Green Communications and Networking

Global warming and climate change have been a growing worldwide concern. Six sources, i.e., transportation, power, buildings, industry, agriculture and forestry, and land use, have been identified as major contributors to the rise of global carbon dioxide (CO2). The mobile industry is seen as a potential enabler to reduce greenhouse gases contributed by these six …

Macrozoobenthos Soft Soils of the Far Eastern Marine Biosphere Reserve

Composition and distribution of the benthic fauna of the soft soils of the Far Eastern Marine Biosphere State Nature Reserve are still not sufficiently explored. In 1963, the hydrobiological monitoring in this area were conducted only in waters of the bays Sivuch’ya and Kalevala (Mikulich & Biryulina, 1970). Expedition of the Pacific Research Institute of …

Experimental Verification of Formulae for Natural Seiche Frequencies in a Two-layer Fluid with the Free Surface

A seiche is a standing wave in an enclosed or partially enclosed body of water (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seiche). Seiches generate significant horizontal and vertical velocities of water movements. It is unpleasant for ships and is essential for ecology. Both surface and internal seiches exist in water with stable density stratification. There are the explicit theoretical formulae for …

Administration of Hot Water Extract Diatomae Caetoceros Ceratosporum via Injection Enhances the Immune Resistance of White Shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei against Infectious Myonecrosis Virus

Main problem to the shrimp culture failure is disease attack caused by parasites, viruses and bacteria. One of the efforts done for disease control in the shrimps culture is by disease prevention by means of increasing shrimp immune system. Increasing shrimp immune system against disease could be done through immunostimulant administration (Treves-Brown, 2000), one of …

Zoning Model on Conservation in the Ecosystem Islands Southeast Aru

Ecosystem conservation was an effort to protect, to preserve, and to utilize the ecosystem function as the supporting habitat for the living of fish resources either for recent or future days (Adams et al, 2004). Indeed, ecosystem conservation was realized through the protection of habitat and population of the fish, the research and development, the …

Impact of Anthropogenic Activities on Genetic Variability of Yeasts inhabiting Mangrove sediments of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Mangroves are coastal wetland forests established at intertidal zones of estuaries, deltas, creeks, lagoons, marshes and mudflats of tropical and subtropical latitudes (Ananda & Sridhar, 2004). Approximately one fourth of the world’s coastline is dominated by mangroves that are distributed in 112 countries and cover about 180,000 km2 of the globe’s surface in subtropical and …

The Reproductive Aspect of Tropical Abalone (Haliotis asinina L.) in the Waters of Tanakeke Islands at South Sulawesi

Abalone (Haliotis asinina) is a mollusk species that belonged to gastropode/snail class. It was identified by its shape of ear, and thus, it was called as ‘donkey ear’. This abalone was a popular export commodity. It was favorite food among people in other countries such as Japan, United States, Europe Countries, Columbia and Canada. Because …
