      This paper reviews rules and regulations implemented by introducing a state policy of Joint Forest Management (JFM) in the forest fringe villages of Odisha, a coastal state of India. It critiques the guidelines and amendments associated with JFM in Odisha that seem not to be examined previously. Several questions are revealed right here relating to the formation of an institution like Vana Surakhya Samiti (VSS) or Eco Development Committee (EDC), the role of villagers, community members, and the Forest Department in building these institutions at the local level, the meetings, resolutions needed, people of the village associated, MOU required between a Divisional Forest Office and these institutions following the resolution of JFM, 2011 and amendments of 2015, and so on. This comparison of the resolution and amendments concludes; that the participation of villagers increases with the initiatives of the JFM in the protection of their own area. JFM has a larger role function in building trust among the forest department officials and villagers of the nearby forest. The necessary modifications in the JFM amendment, of 2015 have made the financial processes transparent, the inter-village and intra-village conflicts are reduced to different projects implemented following this JFM policy. The forest fringe village individuals and their participation in managing the forest resources is a mandatory need. JFM has catered to these needs with different resolutions and amendments. It has not only helped the Government to manage the forest resources in a sustainable way but also enhanced the livelihood of the people making their future better.

      Lake Bosomtwe has been subjected to anthropogenic perturbations that provide different scales of environmental stimuli in response to seasonal variation. This situation can overwhelm the capacity of lake to mitigate the impact on the water quality. Knowledge of seasonality will enhance the predictability of the water quality trends to advance management of the lake. The seasonal pattern of levels of physicochemical and nutrient parameters was examined, from March 2018 to February 2020, using the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment Water Quality Index model. Temperature, pH, alkalinity, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, total hardness, total dissolved solids, total suspended solids, biochemical oxygen demand, nitrate, phosphate, sulphate, iron, lead, and zinc were studies. The results showed a decline in water quality from ‘fair’ status in the pre-rainy (65.7%) and rainy (67.2%) seasons through ‘marginal’ in the pre-dry seasons (46.5%) to poor in the dry seasons (44%). The lake is therefore losing its natural protection to the extent of occasional for the pre-rainy and rainy seasons, frequently for pre-dry seasons, and almost all the time for dry season, the period of low lake water volume and availability and hence high dependence. Thus, the threat of human and ecological health hazard associated with aquatic pollution is ordered by seasonality; being heightened in the dry season with alkalinity, sulphate, iron, temperature, total suspended solids and turbidity as the parameters of more concern. This provides adequate ground for a call for elaborate and systematic plan of action to manage the lake for sustainability.

      GENETIC DIVERSITY OF NATURAL AND RESTORED API-API PUTIH (AVICENNIA ALBA) POPULATIONS IN THE WEST COAST OF PENINSULAR MALAYSIA

      A large tract of mangrove forest in Malaysia has been lost due to increased anthropogenic activities. Restorative practices of mangrove forest have been adopted nationwide to re-establish ecosystem services in combating coastal erosion. However, genetic considerations in local mangrove restoration practices are still far lacking despite the vast literature on their genetic diversity. To understand whether the restored mangroves can impact the genetic diversity distribution among natural populations, we used eight microsatellite markers to assess the genetic diversity of the Api-api putih (Avicennia alba) between the natural and restored populations along the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. We found no difference in terms of genetic diversity between these populations. Two genetic clusters were detected among A. alba along the west coast based on Bayesian clustering and discriminant analysis of principal components (DAPC). The southwest monsoon current circulation that coincides the timing of seed dispersal of A. alba may explain such pattern of genetic differentiation. Despite the minimal genetic structure, our results suggest that seed sourcing from either population is viable for the local mangrove restoration programs in the future.

      Coastal zone of Bangladesh is vulnerable to different disasters due to global climate change. However, the vulnerability magnitude and impact of climate change has been hardly assessed focusing livelihood issues. Thus, this study was carried out to assess the impacts of the climate change and to find out the existing adaptation strategies at two villages of Dacope upazila in Khulna district of Bangladesh involving purposively selected 100 farmers. A survey was conducted using a pre-tested structured interview schedule. It was found that the highest proportion of the respondents (77%) belonged to low-income group (˂50,000 BDT i.e., 587.98 USD family-1). Villagers faced water stagnation, flood, high salinity, and severe drought during summer. These natural disasters damaged the crops, livestock, poultry, trees, houses, roads and shrimp water bodies. Probable solutions to mitigate the disasters would be construction of strong bunds, collecting and storing fresh water through digging small farm ponds, using the stored water for irrigation, training for awareness building, invention of alternate sustainable technology, excavation of canals and GO-NGO collaboration. Farmers reported that rainwater harvesting, hanging vegetable gardening, gher/embankment gardening, domestic animal rearing, handicrafts, etc. were some viable livelihood options. Development and release of new crop varieties, protection of the Sundarbans and awareness building through motivation might be some coping strategies for future extreme weather events.

      The current pandemic situation impacted severely many spectrum (spheres of life) including the education sector. Nevertheless, there was the use of online technology and methods, but spur in the impetus has been in the recent times. It is paradigm shift from face-to-face class to moving classes online: with lot of opportunities and challenges countered by educator and manifested its effectiveness in learning objectives. This research paper attempted to evaluate the new tools & techniques adopted by the educator. Further the opportunities and challenges faced by educator were recognized. This paper attempted to find the teaching effectiveness using the new pedagogy. An ‘Effective Teaching Methods (ETM) Model’ has been developed to measure the teaching effectiveness towards meeting the learning objectives. Methodology: Quantitative method of data collection was followed; 13 variables were identified for analysis of the opportunities and challenges by the educator. Multivariate Regression (SEM) was used to develop the ‘ETM Model’ along with construction of hypothesis. The results showed that there is a high value in the use of tools and methods by educator, while moving classes online. The ‘ETM Model’ revealed that there exists a convergence between opportunities and challenges for teaching effectiveness.

      Modern soft drinks constitute a variety of different products. The high temperature in most nations necessitates a substantial intake of liquids to compensate for the predicted losses from respiration. Fruit juices aid detoxification in humans by utilizing acid, which is an essential universal ingredient of juices. Citric acid is the most widely used acid in juices. Physicochemical and microbiological assessments of packed juices have been conducted in the Chemistry Lab of Bahria University Islamabad. A set of eleven locally manufactured packed juices and nine imported juices samples were collected from four different shopping malls and roadside shops in Islamabad. All the twenty samples were quantitatively analyzed for their microbial contamination and physicochemical properties. First, the samples were subjected to the microbial analysis where they were tested for the total bacterial count, total coliform count, and salmonella and shigella count using Nutrient agar, EMB agar, and S.S agar, respectively. All the collected 20 juice samples were examined separately and individually and then compared with water quality standards given by World Health Organization (WHO) and PAK-EPA. After microbiological assessment of juice samples, they were further analyzed with physical and chemical parameters. Physical parameters such as pH, salts, temperature, electrical conductivity, etc. of the juices have been tested. Chemical parameters such as chlorides and alkalinity of the juice samples have been tested. After the testing, the results have been noted down and further calculations have been generated.

      Ants, because of their diversity, abundance, and functional roles in the ecosystem, play a crucial role in understanding the effects of habitat loss and fragmentation on community ecology. Thus, the influence of the structural complexity of the environment on the richness and diversity of ants makes them a potential ecological indicator. Although there exist numerous studies on ant species richness in different countries, such studies are rare in Bangladesh. To fill-up this information gap, the present study was conducted in Lawachara National Park, Bangladesh, a conservation site with abundant natural resources. The purpose of this study was to describe the richness and composition of local ant assemblage in the forest ecosystem and understand their structural diversity on different types of plants and disturbance patterns. Time unit sampling and pitfall traps were used to perform sampling from two different areas, viz, primary forest and secondary forest. A total of 843 ant individuals was identified from 48 species of 17 genera distributed among 6 subfamilies. Myrmicinae was the most abundant ant subfamily in the study area. Most of the species found were from the genus Pheidole. The rarefaction curves showed higher species richness in areas with reforestation. The richness pattern of species found in two areas denoted that vegetation and soil conditions may affect the overall diversity and composition of ants. This can be considered as the first extensive list of ant assemblages from Lawachara National Park. These findings will provide comprehensive data for using ants as bioindicators in natural protected areas.

      Aquaculture has become one of the fastest-growing economic sub-sectors of the Bangladesh economy, providing protein-rich food, the source of employment and foreign currency earnings. Therefore, shrimp farming is very much common in the brackish water which affects the coastal natural ecosystem and livelihood of the coastal communities, prticularly in Chakaria Upazila of Cox’s Bazar district. Due to rapid and unplanned growth of this farming, socio-ecological systesms has been changing. This study aims to assess shrimp farming’s environmental, social, and economic impacts in Chakaria upazila in Bangladesh. Soil sample was collected to determine the environmental impacts of shrimp farming. Besides, we selected the shrimp farmers, rice producers, and alternative shrimp-rice producers through simple random sampling. Purposive sampling was conducted to choose the other stakeholders. A semi-structured questionnaire was developed for interviewing different stakeholders. We found that, because of the high economic benefit, high production rate in short time, and availability of brackish water, the people in this Upazila are attracted to continue the shrimp farming. As a result, mangrove forest and agricultural land converted into shrimp farming. Our soil analysis showed that organic matter content in was low (0.25-3.56%). In addition to this, most people suffer from water-borne diseases during the flooding period. We also found clear evidene of shortage of safe drinking water due to salinity intrusion in grounwater. The tendency of raring livestock such as cow, goat, and buffalo decreased due to insufficient grazing land. The study also revealed that some internal conflicts exist between different stakeholders in Chakararia Upazila. Most local shrimp fry collectors collect fry from the tidal river and use an unscientific traditional method which was harmful for the other aquatic fish population. Poor quality of larvae supply from hatchery caused various diseases in cultivated ghers and ponds. The findings from this study provide useful information for sustainable coastal zone management in Bangladesh to build a more resilient coastal communities.

      Temperature and precipitation variations have huge environmental, socio-economic impacts. This study aims to detect the trend of temperature, precipitation, and discharge from 2000-2020 in the district Ghotki. Mann Kendal test and Sen’s slope were applied by using XLSTAT in MS Excel to investigate the significance of all trends. The results showed that the annual rainfall trend was increased with the highest intensity noted in 2003; 275mm and 2010; 271 mm. The trend in the monsoon season was increased with the highest slope 0.863 by comparing with non-monsoon which showed the slope was 0.642. The annual temperature was increased an average temperature recorded in 2016; 28.5 & 2018; 28 °C. Further, the summer-autumn season’s trend has sharply increased. While the trend of Ghotki feeder discharge was slightly increased in January due to the continuous flow of water and less demand for water during the Rabi season. But in July, the highest discharge was recorded in 2010 due to heavy rainfall and flood situations over the study area. The trend in Kharif was continuously declined due to farmers started sowing sugarcane crops instead of rice and cotton which need less irrigation water. It is concluded that the performance of MK and SS tests was consistent at the verified significance level.

      Increased population density has led to a lot of pressure on the limited natural/land resources of south-eastern Nigeria. This includes the need for laterite, sand, kaolin, gravel and clay for buildings, backfills and road construction. This has led to extensive unmoderated excavation of these resources, particularly in Anambra state. The excavation has in turns, culminated in increased intensity of land degradation in the state, underscoring the need to characterize and evaluate the land use potentials of such sites to better understand the nature of the soils and the impacts of the attendant land use. Samples were collected from the different horizons of the profile to evaluate the physical, chemical and morphological properties of the soils. Coefficient of variation was used to measure the soil variability within the profile. Land capability class was determined, which informed the land use and management recommendations. The results show that the soil is very deep (>21.5m). The soil texture ranged from sandy clay loam to sandy. Infiltration rate and saturated hydraulic conductivity decreased by up to 300 to 560 % with excavation. The soils were strongly acidic; organic carbon and total nitrogen was low but highly variable; Al, H, Ca, Mg, K, Na, and phosphorus were moderately variable while pH, CEC and base saturation (BS) were the least variable. The land capability class was IIIes. Given the evidence of erosion and preponderance of erodible Nanka sands in the subsoil, the site should be reclaimed as soon as the mining activities are discontinued.
