  • Technological qualities of common winter wheat ( L.) grown in conditions
           of unconventional agriculture

    • Abstract: During the period 2019 - 2020, a study was conducted on soil type calcic chernozem with Venka 1 common winter wheat variety. The experiment is based on the block method, in four replications with a size of the experimental plot of 10 m2. Sowing was carried out in October with a sowing rate of 500 sprouts/m2 after the predecessor sugar beet. In the appropriate periods, treatments were made in 4 variants: 1) Control - untreated variant, 2) Treatment with biodynamic preparations: 500 + Fladen preparation + preparation 501, 3) Treatment with biological preparations: Heliosulfur + Free N. 4) Combined treatment with the same biodynamic and biological preparations.Preparation 500 was applied in the phase of autumn and spring wheat tillering - 5% solution. Preparation 501 was applied in the phase ear formation - 1.5 g for 30 l of water/da. Fladen preparation is applied in the phase of autumn and spring tillering - 1.5% solution. Heliosulfur was applied in the ear formation phase - flowering at a dose of 50 ml/da, at an appropriate date on the biodynamic calendar. Free N was applied to the soil in the phase of autumn and spring tillering at a dose of 50 ml/da, at an appropriate date on the biodynamic calendar.The analysis of the technological qualities is made according to the respective ISO methodology. The statistical data processing was performed with the STATGRAPH program.The application of biodynamic and biological preparations and their joint use leads to an increase in the yield of wet gluten, as well as an increase in the content of N, P, K and protein in wheat grain. It has been proven that the combined use of biodynamic and biological preparations increases the content of dry matter, organic matter and the content of nitrogen-free extracts in wheat grain. The content of crude proteins has been shown to increase only in the varieties treated with biodynamic and biological preparations.

  • subsp. (Renz) Soó & D.M.Moore (Orchidacea): a new subspecies for
           the Bulgarian flora

    • Abstract: Ophrys sphegodes subsp. helenae (Renz) Soó & D.M.Moore is a Balkan endemic, for which so far there are data for distribution only on the territory of 2 countries: Greece and Albania. During a study of the flora of the Voyvodsko plateau, located in the northeastern part of the Republic of Bulgaria, in April 2019 a locality of this species was discovered. The development of the population in the period April 2019 - May 2021 was monitored. The population consists of 3 individuals located on an area of 0.5 m2. Of these, 2 individuals are in a generative state and 1 individual is in a vegetative state. The abiotic and biotic conditions in the habitat are described. It is characterized by a rich floristic diversity: the associated species are 60 in number. Anthropogenic impact has been reported. The prospects for the existence of the population are indicated. It is proposed to declare the territory around the locality a protected area in order to preserve the habitat from negative anthropogenic impacts.

  • Hepatotoxicity and mitochondrial dysfunction after lead (Pb) exposure and
           the protective effect of fennel essential oil of this toxicity in Wister
           rats

    • Abstract: The present work focuses on evaluation of the toxic effects of an exposure to lead (Pb) on the liver mitochondria function in Wistar rats and the protective role of the fennel essential oils (FEO).The experiments were conducted on Wistar rats, which were treated daily through orally gavages during 21 days. 24 animals were divided into four groups of 6 rats each one: the control group received water, while group II received FEO (0.5 mg/kg); group III received Pb (25 mg/kg), and group IV received Pb + FEO in the doses of (0,5 + 25 mg/kg). The mitochondrial dysfunction induced by lead is expressed by reducing mitochondrial respiration (O2 consumption) associated with an increase in mitochondrial swelling and permeability compared to the control group. A disturbance in the rates of oxidative stress biomarkers was also observed. This disturbance was expressed by an increase of the MDA rate and the Cytochromes C activity associated with depletion in the GSH rate and GPx activity compared to the control group. The rat’s co-treatment with FEO restored all these parameters to values similar to the Control.The whole of these results shows well that the exposure to the lead causes disturbances on the level mitochondrion, which are attenuated by fennel essential oils.

  • Chemical and geochemical modeling. Thermodynamic models for binary
           

    • Abstract: In this study we developed well validated thermodynamic models for solution behavior and solid-liquid equilibrium for all fluoride binary systems, for which activity data are available. The subject of modeling study are 5 fluoride systems of the type 1-1 (HF-H2O, NaF-H2O, KF-H2O, RbF-H2O, and CsF-H2O) and one of 1-2 type (H2SiF6-H2O) from low to very high concentration at 298.15 K. Models are developed on the basis of Pitzer ion interactions approach. The recommendations on mean activity coefficients (γ±) have been used to construct the model for HF-H2O system. To parameterize models for all other 5 binary systems we used all available raw experimental osmotic coefficients data (φ) for whole concentration range of solutions, and up to saturation point. The predictions of new developed here models are in excellent agreement with experimental osmotic coefficients data, and with recommendations on activity coefficients in binary solutions from low to very high concentration: up to 20 mol. kg−1 in HF-H2O, and up to 35.6 mol.kg−1 in CsF-H2O. The Deliquescence Relative Humidity (DRH (%)) and thermodynamic solubility products (as ln Kosp) of 4 solid phases [NaF(s), KF.2H2O(s), RbF(s), and CsF(s)] have been determined on the basis of evaluated model parameters and using experimental m(sat) solubility data.

  • Technological properties of triticale ( L.) grown under unconventional
           agriculture

    • Abstract: During the period 2019 - 2020, a study was conducted on soil type calcic chernozem with Kolorit triticale variety. The experiment is based on the block method, in four replications with a size of the experimental plot of 10 m2. Sowing was carried out in October with a sowing rate of 500 sprouts/m2 after the predecessor sugar beet. In the appropriate periods, treatments were made in 4 variants: 1) Control - untreated variant, 2) Treatment with biodynamic preparations: 500 + Fladen preparation + preparation 501, 3) Treatment with biological preparations: Heliosulfur + Free N, 4) Combined treatment with the same biodynamic and biological preparations.Preparation 500 was applied in the phase of autumn and spring triticale tillering - 5% solution. Preparation 501 was applied in the phase of ear formation - 1.5 g for 30 l of water/da. Fladen preparation was applied in the phase of autumn and spring tillering - 1.5% solution. Heliosulfur was applied in the ear formation phase - flowering at a dose of 50 ml/da, on an appropriate date on the biodynamic calendar. Free N was applied to the soil in the phase of autumn and spring tillering at a dose of 50 ml/da, on an appropriate date on the biodynamic calendar.The analysis of the technological qualities is made according to the respective ISO methodology. The statistical data processing was performed with the STATGRAPH program.The application of biodynamic and biological preparations and their joint use leads to an increase in the content of Nitrogen-free Extracts, an increase in the content of Minerals and Ca in the variant treated with a combination of biodynamic and biological preparations. Treatment with biodynamic preparations has been shown to increase the dry matter and organic matter content of the grain, while when compared to the control one, a difference in the same indicators has been observed only in the second year of the experiment with biological preparations. Treatment with biodynamic and biological preparations and their joint use did not affect the content of N, P and K.

  • Biochemical parameters variations with season, age, sex, parity and
           pregnancy in crossbred goats raised in Tiaret, Algeria

    • Abstract: The aim of this study was to determine the influence of season, age, sex, parity and gestation status on some biochemical parameters in local cross-bred goats raised in Tiaret, Algeria. Ninety cross bred local goats, from 2019 to 2020, aged between nine and seventy-two months at different physiological stage were used. Animals belong to different farms in Tiaret located at the north-west Algeria (35°22’ N, 1°19’ E). The mean values of triglycerides, creatinine and calcium were significantly (p<0,05) higher in winter than in spring. The physiological state of the goat had a significant influence (p<0,05) on cholesterol, urea, total proteins, calcium and phosphorus, with a high average values in non-pregnant goats, while triglycerides and globulin had significant higher values in postpartum and pregnant femals, respectively. In our work, parity had a significant influence (p<0,05) on cholesterol, calcium and phosphorus, with high average values in young goats and a significant influence (p<0,05) on triglycerides and creatinine with high average values in primiparous ones. Age significantly influenced (p<0,05) cholesterol, triglycerides, total protein, calcium and globulin. The results obtained from this study could serve as reference values for the local goats and other regions or countries with similar climatic and nutritional conditions.

  • Status of a collection from common wheat varieties ( L.) of Bulgarian
           origin after a ten-year storage period

    • Abstract: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the condition of a collection of Bulgarian common wheat varieties under ex situ controlled storage after a ten-year period. The studied materials are characterized by high vitality, without negative changes that will lead to the loss of original germplasm. The established moisture in the seeds is high for the purpose of controlled storage. When it rises above 12,5%, a decrease in the values of germination energy is observed. Higher control of initial moisture and germination is required prior to entering the seeds for storage under ex situ conditions.

  • Dipters from the sub-basin of Boumerzoug (Constantine - Algeria)

    • Abstract: In order to evaluate the Diptera biodiversity in the Boumerzoug sub-basin, samples were performed at five permanent oueds: El Berda Oued, Boumerzoug Oued, El Guareh Oued, Hmimime Oued, and Sigus Oued. Sampling was carried out monthly during the period from December 2014 to November 2015. The samples were taken using a Surber mesh for the lotic face with size 25 cm * 20 cm * 65 cm, 500 µm net. In total, 53484 individuals comprising 24 families were collected. The Chironomidae family is the most dominant with a population of 43553 individuals (Fc % = 81.43%), followed by the Simuliidae (5137 individuals, Fc % = 9.61%), Psychodidae (1907 individuals, Fc % = 3.57%), Ephydridae (1509 individuals (Fc % = 2.81%) and Sciaridae (313 individuals, Fc % = 0.59%). However the remained families (Culicidae, Asilliidae, Mycetophilidae, Tipulidae, Syrphidae, Tabanidae, Muscidae, Calliphoridae, Ceratopogonidae, Fanniidae, Cecidomyiidae, Anthomyiidae, Sphaeroceidae, Sciomyzidae, Stratiomyidae, and Phoridae) weree poorly represented (between 1 individual (Fc % <0.00%) to 281 individuals (Fc % = 0.53%) were collected with predominance. Finally, compared to the other families, the predominance of the Chironomidae family can be explained by the fact that this family plays an important ecological role in wetlands rich in organic matter, even clearly polluted.

  • Contribution of ecological restoration in preservation of forests
           ecosystems in Algeria

    • Abstract: Under the combined effect of anthropogenic pressures and climate change, forest ecosystems can no longer play their ecological and economic role if nothing is done to adapt them. The impacts of fires, overgrazing and overexploitation are that over 60% of forest ecosystems are in an advanced stage of degradation. It is in this context that a new strategy focused on ecological restoration must be quickly put in place. It must be based on ecological alternatives designed to adapt the composition and structure of these plant formations to environmental conditions. The concept of stable species, living space, keystone species, natural attributes and habitat identification. The ecological restoration proposed will allow preserving the vegetal cover at first time and then developing the species with resilience through a list of species that could develop under different pressures, both natural and anthropogenic.

  • Geological-geomorphological characteristics and petrographical composition
           of the St. Anastasia Island

    • Abstract: St. Anastasia Island is one of the symbols of the cultural and historical heritage of the Republic of Bulgaria. This raises the need for the study of risky oceanographic factors, climatic phenomena, risky geological processes as well as detailed petrographical characteristics of the Upper Cretaceous volcanic rocks forming the islands. The results of the petrographical study show that the island was built by Alkali feldspar trachytes. The volcanics from St. Anastasia Island shows a close petrochemical similarity to the volcanics from Alatepenski paleovolcano belonging to the “Peripheral Volcanic Centers” in the region.

  • High production of L-glutamic acid from date juice extracts by using
           fed-batch cultures: pulsed and continuous feeding modes

    • Abstract: In the present work, L-glutamic acid production by Corynebacterium glutamicum fermentation on date juice extracts applying two fed-batch feeding modes, pulsed and continuous, were investigated. According to the obtained results, the continuous feeding fed-batch mode was found to be the most efficient process. Moreover the continuous feeding rate mode with a feeding medium containing date juice sugars enriched with ammonium sulfate was found even more favorable as it enhances the L-glutamic acid production by approximately 2.35 fold more than the batch culture and by about 1.17 fold more than the pulsed feeding. In this respect, comparing the traditional batch culture to the continuously fed culture with a medium containing date juice sugars with ammonium sulfate showed increases of 135.47% in L-glutamic acid production, 104% in productivity, 39.09% in biomass, and 47.69% in the yield respectively allowing us to reach a final L-glutamic acid concentration of about 138 g/L, the highest ever published.

  • Ability of metal trace elements accumulation by Lichens, and , in Megres
           area (Setif, Algeria)

    • Abstract: The accumulating ability of the atmospheric Metal Trace Elements (MTE) of two lichenic species thalli; Xanthoria parietina and Ramalina farinacea were evaluated in the region of Megres. The recorded concentrations of MTE (Fe, Cu, Mn, Cd, and Pb) were determined by atomic absorption spectrophotometry (AASF). The ability to accumulate MTE in X. parietina thalli is considerably greater than that of the fruticulous lichen R. farinacea in all stations studied. The general pattern of the elements accumulated in the thalli of the two species in decreasing order of their concentrations was Fe> Mn> Pb> Cu> Cd. The Fe values are very high in X. parietina thalli with an average of 35237.5 ± 3394.2 mg/kg dry wt. In contrast, the Pb concentrations are high, especially in the southern station of the Megres region. The results showed that X. parietina is a hyper-accumulating species of MTE, compared to R. farinacea. This work highlights the ecological importance of this species as a stable and resistant pioneer in this fragile region.

  • and hepatoprotective effect of three endemic plants against carbon
           tetrachloride-induced liver damage in rats

    • Abstract: The aim of the study was to investigate in vitro potential antioxidant and hepatoprotective effects of methanolic extracts from the aerial parts of Matricaria pubescens, Centaurea incana, and Santolina africana, against carbon tetrachloride induced liver damage in rats. The different aerial parts of three methanolic extracts, exhibited antioxidant activity in the DPPH free radical (IC50, 0.032, 0.087 and 0.044 mg/ml) respectively. The reducing ability of the extracts showed a dose-dependent trend increasing with increase in the concentrations of the extracts.The antioxidant activity of samples at the concentration of 2 mg/ml was reflected in their ability to inhibit the bleaching of β-carotene. Treated groups with extracts of studied three plants showed decrease in plasma levels of AST, ALT, ALP, and an increase in plasma catalase levels activities, while hepatic MDA decreased and catalase increased as compared to carbon tetrachloride treated groups. In consistency with in vivo and in vitro results, extracts of all three plants ameliorated the carbon tetrachloride extensive damage to liver tissue of treated animals, but, Santolina africana extract was the most efficient.

  • Physico-chemical and biological characterization of the edaphic substrate
           of L. Case of the Tamalous forest (Skikda, Algeria)

    • Abstract: The understanding of the ecological behavior of Arbutus unedo L. in the context of its valuation is the objective assigned to this work. Two different observation sites were selected in Tamalous forest (Skikda) presenting different habitat contexts along a north-south transect. The methodological approach adopted is that of the comparative analysis of the physico-chemical and biological characteristics between a soil under cover of Arbutus unedo L. and bare control soil. The results obtained highlighted quite significant differences between the soils covered with strawberry tree, show that they are acidic in nature, an increase in the rate of organic matter, of the CEC which increases significantly as well as the concentration of exchangeable cations. As for the soil fauna, we observe a clear increase in biomass than in density at the level of all families of individuals, in particular the stations under the strawberry tree cover.

  • Protective effect of zinc and Pine barks extract supplement against
           Indometacin-induced gastric ulcer in rats

    • Abstract: This investigation was aimed to study the effect of Pinus halepensis aqueous bark extract and zinc to prevent indomethacin induced gastric ulcer in rats. Thirty female albino Wistar rats were divided into 6 groups of 5 animals each (n=5); Group 1: normal control, Group 2: ulcer rats received normal saline, Group 3: ulcer rats treated with P. halepensis, Group 4: ulcer rats were treated with zinc, Group 5: ulcer rats were treated with P. halepensis + zinc and Group 6 ulcer rats were treated with Ranitidine for 15 days. Stomach ulcer was induced by a single oral administration of indomethacin (30 mg/kg). Various biochimical, physiologic and histologic parameters were estimated. Obtained results show that the ulcer index, pH and total acidity level were significantly reduced (p<0.05) and Pepsin activity was significantly increased (p< 0.05) in ulcer induced rats pre-treated with extract of P. halepensis, zinc and ranitidine when compared with indomethacin treated rats. The MDA level was significantly decreased and GSH level was increased (p< 0.05) in rats treated with plant extract and zinc. Histopathology of gastric mucosa confirmed the gastro-protection by plant and zinc treatment. The study reveals anti-ulcer and antioxidant properties were observed in bark aqueous extract of P. halepensis groups with a benefic effect of zinc to reduce oxidative stress and gastric ulcer induced in the rat.
