1. Wild Edible Plants Consumed by Rural Communities in District Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh, India Sanjeev Kumar Plants are gifts of God for mankind and are the basis of life on earth. The tradition of consuming wild plants as a source of food still persists in rural communities, despite their primary reliance on agriculture and animal husbandry. District Bilaspur lies between 31° 12′ 30″ and 31° 35′ 45″ N latitude and between 76° 23′ 45″ and 76° 55′ 40″ E longitude with an altitude ranging from 300 – 1930 meter in Shivalik hills of the Himalayas in the basin of river satluj. A total of 103 species of wild edible plants belonging to 76 genera and 49 families have been recorded in district Bilaspur.Click Here To Read More 01-11 [DOWNLOAD PDF]

2. Metal Ion Extraction with Imino Diacetic Acid Immobilised Silica Gel Geeta Solanki, Vikas Malik and Munesh The sorption of Pd (II) on iminodiacetic acid (IDA) anchored silica gel was studied. The optimum pH range for quantitative sorption is 4.5-5.5. The sorption of Pd follows the Langmuir Model. It is useful to analyze Pd in synthetic material. The Padladium content of synthetic solutions cooresponding to standard reference materials was analyzed.Click Here To Read More 12-17 [DOWNLOAD PDF]

3. Population Status, Distribution, Antioxidant Properties and Antibacterial Activity of Threatened Herb Gentiana kurroo Royle Manohar Lal, Kiran Kumari, S. S. Samant, Shiv Paul and Sunil Dutt Sustainable utilization and conservation of the threatened species is a major challenge for conservationists. For the conservation and reintroduction of species, comprehensive information on the ecological elements, potential habitats and pharmaceutical importance of the species is essentially required. This has necessitated initiating studies on habitat and population ecology of the threatened species. In view of the above, the present study investigated populations of Gentian kurroo representing different habitats and aspects in Himachal Pradesh. Among the populations, mean density of G. kurroo 80.75 Ind per 100m2 and range varied from 63.0-110.0 Ind 100m-2.Click Here To Read More 18-27 [DOWNLOAD PDF]

4. Psoriasis and Its Treatment: A Review Avichal Kumar, Shammy Jindal, Mahendra Singh Ashawat, Vinay Pandit and Vishal Priya The psoriasis is chronic skin disease that causes the symptoms like abnormal skin cell growth, red circles, patches etc. It is also known as erythematous papules with silvery scales. The two types of study are used for the pathologic changes on the cellular levels. The most of cases comes in the age observed age in between the ages of 15 and 30. In the study, the reason for psoriasis disease is due to a genetic susceptibility as well as an environmental response. The estimated annual cost $32.5 billion for treating psoriasis in United States.Click Here To Read More 28-31 [DOWNLOAD PDF]

5. Species Diversity of Lichens in Balh Valley of Himachal Pradesh, North Western Himalaya Hem Chander, Sapna, Deepika and Sanjna During present investigation a total of sixty specimens of lichens were collected from Balh valley. The lichens were collected during November 2018 to February 2019 from twenty eight localities of Balh Valley in Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh, North Western Himalaya. A total of nineteen species of lichens were identified on the basis of morphological and anatomical characters. Relevant literature was consulted for confirmation of species identification. Out of the identified species, one species viz. Usnea longissima is being reported for the first time from Mandi district. Phaeophyscia hispidula is most common out of the nineteen species and is found in fifteen localities.Click Here To Read More 32-40 [DOWNLOAD PDF]

6. Azotobacter: A Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria a Biofertilizer for Wheat Crop Vijay Kumar, Poonam, Sapna Sharma, Anjana and Minakshi Thakur In the present context, the best alternative of chemical fertilizer is necessary because of its adverse effects on the soil health. There are several alternatives available to enhance the soil fertility one of them is Azotobacter. It is a free-living N2- fixer diazotroph that has several beneficial effects on the crop growth and yield. It helps in synthesis of growth regulating substances like Auxins, Cytokinins and Giberellic Acid (GA). In addition, it stimulates rhizospheric microbes, protects the crops from major phytopathogens, improves nutrient uptake and ultimately boost up biological nitrogen fixation. The abundance of these bacteria in soil is related to many factors, mostly soil pH and fertility.Click Here To Read More 41-47 [DOWNLOAD PDF]
