Pharmacognostical Screening Of Antibacterial Compounds From Leaves Of Alstonia Scholaris
Volume: 7 | Issue no: 1-2016 | Pagination: 20-24
Today, when every day a new pathogenic strain of micro-organism is evolving, to combat any and every fatal disease, we need to have a whole new set of drugs, for which that very micro-organism is yet not resistant. India is blessed with numerous medicinal plants, whose secondary metabolites are truly effective in many diseases. Alstonia scholaris has long been used in treatment of various disorders in Ayurvedic system of medicine. Standard phytochemical assay on Alstonia scholaris leaves extracts have showed that alkaloids, saponins, phenolics were present more in the middle of solvent extracts series. Further we have worked on gram positive and gram negative bacteria both to see our extract?s biological activity. There methanolic extract of leaves showed broad spectrum antibacterial activity against tested organisms. Maximum activity was exhibited against Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, followed by Staphylococcus aureus. These results show the possible way out to fight many deadly diseases.

Author:Preeti Pandey, Pradeep K. Shukla, Pragati Misra And Pramod W. Ramteke
Volume: 7 | Issue no: 1-2016 | Pagination: 14-19
Asparagus one of the most important medicinal plants, found in India, China and other parts of the world, known to produce steroidal saponins called Shatavarins, which is used in many Ayurvedic and Homeopathic drugs. It is recommended in Ayurvedic texts for prevention and treatment of gastric ulcers as galatogogue and nervine tonic. An experiment was conducted to optimize the concentration of phytohormone for multiple shoot induction from different explants of Asparagus racemosus. Sterile culture were obtained when the explants were treated with (0.1%) bavestine, for 5-10 min, (70 %) alcohol for 2 min, (20%) sodium hypochlorite 5 min, (0.1%) HgCl2 for 3 min, washed with sterile distilled water for 6 times. After proper treatment of explants with antimicrobial agent, explants were transferred to MS medium supplement with different combinations and concentration of auxins (2, 4-D and NAA) and cytokinins (BAP and Kinetin). Among the different combinations tested best shooting was found in MS medium supplemented with 2.0 mg/lit. Kn followed by 4.0 mg/l BAP.

Volume: 7 | Issue no: 1-2016 | Pagination: 5-13
Primitive human societies have always relied on plants and plant products for various remedies. In certain areas, these folk medical prescriptions are endemic and have survived through ages from one generation to the next through word of mouth. They do not exist as written knowledge. The present study was undertaken with an objective of documenting the ethnobotanical information of medicinal plants of Dachigam National Park taking the help of local herbalists, elderly and knowledgeable people. A total of 26 medicinal shrub species belonging to 19 genera and 16 families were recorded in the study area.

Volume: 7 | Issue no: 1-2016 | Pagination: 1-4
Photosynthetic pigments are responsible for conversion of light energy into a form of chemical energy in the plants. The most important pigment in the light harvesting machinery of the plant is chlorophyll and Carotenoids play an important role in photoprotection of chlorophyll molecules. Cowpea responds to survive under water-deficit conditions via a series of physiological, cellular and molecular processes culminating in stress tolerance. Most cowpea is produced in arid and semi-arid zone. This experiment was conducted in the research field of Department of Biological Sciences, Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agricultural Technology and Sciences, Allahabad. To study the chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and carotenoid content of three cowpea varieties (UU-0, VU-89 and KK-6) subjected to the different level of watering (daily watering, 2 days interval, 4 days interval and 6 days interval of watering). The experimental materials were arranged inRandomize Complete BlockDesign. The results indicate that the all photosynthetic pigments such as chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and carotenoid content maximum in daily watering whereas at 6 days interval of watering observed minimum.

Considering above facts, a herbal garden was established in Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Kaliapani, Teok in 2012, not only to encourage the farmers to introduce the home herbal garden but also to inculcate a sense of familiarity with surrounding biodiversity and its conservation, especially herbal plants. Awareness, the basic requirements of establishing herbal gardens, uses of herbs and the issues related to employment generation avenues are studied in nearby villages of KVK, Jorhat. Results showed that people are found to be interested in herbal medical tourism but lack of awareness and acquaintance people showed apathy to start as employment generation avenues.

Volume: 6 | Issue no: 1&2-2015 | Pagination: 43-45
The present study was conducted in Dantiwada taluka of Banaskantha district. Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University runs RKVY scheme. There are 16 villages under RKVY, out of 16 villages, 8 villages were randomly selected for the study. There are mostly five types of indigenous herbs of plant and plant materials were being used by rural women. Among which rural women gave first rank to other type of indigenous herbs material (i.e., jaggery, afim, mishri, green leafy vegetables, bajara and wheat flour, rice ,gunda and gunda fruits etc.) followed by seeds and spices (i.e., Dill seeds, clove, black cumin, omum, black pepper, fenugreek, mustard (oil) and castor etc.) and roots and tubers (i.e., onion, ginger, dry ginger, garlic and turmeric) for child health. Whereas, for maternal health rural women gave first rank to seeds and spices (i.e., dill seeds, clove, black cumin, omum, black pepper, fenugreek, mustard (oil) and castor etc.).
Ethno-Medicinal Plants In Five Forest Ranges Indang?S District, South Gujarat, India
Volume: 6 | Issue no: 1&2-2015 | Pagination: 33-42
An extensive field studies were undertaken in order to study the utilization of wild medicinal plants in five forest ranges in Dang?s district, southern Gujarat during September 2010 to August 2013. It resulted that the utilized 99 species of plants which included trees (49), herbs (29), climbers (4) and shrubs (17), distributed in 88 genera and 50 families. Family Fabaceae was found dominant species (12) and followed by Malvaceae (9), Asteraceae and Moraceae (6), Apocynaceae (5) and Combretaceae (4). Drink or decoction made out of plant parts were observed as the most common mode of intake, while leaves were the common plant part used as medicine. This study highlights the need for recording the local ecological knowledge of indigenous communities, which will help to formulate plans aimed at multiple-use-forestry.
