      An agricultural field located in the vicinity of the Hattar industrial Estate irrigates with industrial wastewater containing potentially toxic metals and excessive nutrients. In this study, onion field soil, wheat field soil, and edible parts of the wheat and onion were sampled from the field irrigated with long-term industrial wastewater to evaluate the potentially toxic metals (Cr, Cd, Ni, Fe, Zn, Hg, Cu) and excessive nutrients (K, Ca, Mg). Lake sediments were also sampled to examine the effects on polluted soil and edible plants. The results indicate that concentration level of potentially toxic metals are high in the soil and nutrients in the sediment. The plant component study shows that potentially toxic metals and nutrients are maximum in onion (root vegetable) than in wheat. During analysis of sediment’s effects on contaminated soil and spinach, it was concluded that potentially toxic metals were very high in spinach of contaminated soil than in sediments amended soil, while nutrients were high in sediments amended soil. A leafy part of spinach was more vulnerable to the accumulation of potentially toxic metals than other parts. The column leaching experiment shows that the concentration of metals and availability of nutrients in sediments amended soil is higher than in contaminated soil due to less uptake of nutrients and potentially toxic metals by spinach. It is concluded that sediments are suitable in polluted soil for reducing potentially toxic metals and excessive nutrient uptake by edible plants.

      Shipbreaking industry has turned out to be dominant sector in Bangladesh without considering the environmental issues. However, to date, extremely limited studies have been performed to monitor the air and noise level around shipbreaking sites of Bangladesh. This study is conducted to assess the air and noise level with associated health risk vicinity to selected shipbreaking areas of the country. Herein, data on various air pollutants, noise level, and meteorological factors were collected from six prominent shipbreaking yards in Chattogram. Findings of the research work revealed that some air quality parameters and noise level adjacent to shipbreaking areas are exceeded the permissible level set by the WHO. The values of Air Quality Index (AQI) is found in the unhealthy category for human health perspective. The average noise level was also recorded beyond the permissible limit in every sampling sites, following descending order: S3 > S4 > S5 > S6 > S1 > S2. From the statistical analysis, the authors explored that there are significant correlation with poor to strong (0.0.026 to 0.97) among the climatic parameters and air pollutants. Both particulate matters and AQI demonstrate a moderate correlation with the meteorological parameters (humidity and wind speed), and gaseous air pollutants (CO2 and TVOC) also have considerable correlations. The moderate correlation between AQI and noise level is also observed in this study. The authors recommended for effective control actions to alleviate the detrimental environmental pollution arises due to the consequences of shipbreaking activities for ensuring health safety of workers.

      Polymesoda spp., which represent bivalves in the mangrove ecosystem, inhabit the mangrove forests of the Indo-Pacific region. They are edible bivalves consumed by inhabitants located around the mangrove forests in the region. The bivalves also have a cultural significance because their shells are used for religious ceremonies on the Yaeyama Islands in Japan. However, detailed studies of these bivalves is scarce and their biology is not well understood. We conducted this study in the mangrove forest along Urauchi River of Iriomote Island, Japan. The spatial distribution patterns of the bivalves and the forest floor environment were surveyed. We used 75 large (10m2 quadrat) plots to survey plant species and above-ground root density, and small (1m2 quadrat) plots to count the number of bivalves and measure median particle diameter, sediment temperature and Oxygen Reduction Potential (ORP) in each large plot. In addition, the relationships between these forest floor environmental factors and the spatial distribution patterns of the bivalves were analyzed. Polymesoda spp. was present in 34 plots. Bruguiera gymnorhiza was dominant in 79.4% of plots. A correlation between the distribution and median particle diameter and ORP and sediment temperature was not found. In 94% of the plots, the above-ground root density was over 50% of the large plot. The relationships between the spatial distribution patterns of the bivalves and plant species and the above-ground root density were revealed.

      IMPACT OF PINCHING ON GROWTH AND YIELD OF MARIGOLD (Tagetes erecta L.)

      Marigold, a member of the Asteraceae family, is a popular ornamental plant grown throughout the world, including Nepal. The color and size of the flowers on marigold plants vary. Marigold plants can reach a height of 5 feet, but pinching procedures can lower this, allowing the intercultural operation to continue. Tagetes erecta L. is one of the most well-known marigold varieties in Nepal. Pinching is a technique for breaking apical dominance and redirecting energy to increase blossom production. Different experiments including treatments like no pinch, single pinch, and double pinches were reviewed to evaluate the effect of pinching on the growth and yield of marigolds. The effect of pinching on marigold growth and yield was investigated by comparing parameters such as plant height, number of branches per plant, number of flowers per plant, and flower size of pinched and unpinched (healthy) plants. The height of the unpinched plant was found to be 25% higher than that of the pinched. When plants are pinched, their apical dominance is broken, which encourages the plant to generate lateral branches and become bushy Because the majority of the nutrition is dislocated from the apical region of the plant when it is pinched; no pinched plants have fewer branches than pinched plants. Pinching stimulates cell division, cell size, leaf area, and photosynthetic compound production, which affects branch formation and, as a result, flower production. According to the results from various trials, double pinching resulted in the highest increase in plant height, number of branches, number of flowers per plant, and bloom size when compared to no pinching.

      Construction sites are often blamed for dengue outbreaks in surrounding localities. The environment is suitable for immature mosquitoes to develop without predators and the convenience of female mosquitoes to feed on the exposed construction workers. The purposes of this study were to identify the species of mosquitoes present at construction sites and the types of their preferred breeding habitats, and also to determine the vertical distribution of the mosquitoes. Nineteen construction sites in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur were cross-sectionally surveyed for the presence of immature mosquitoes in 2018. All water-holding containers were inspected for the presence of immature mosquitoes. Types of water-holding containers were recorded and counted. The number of immature mosquitoes was counted from each positive container and then transferred to the laboratory for species identification. A total of 1,643 immature mosquitoes were collected, comprising 1,287 larvae and 356 pupae. Aedes aegypti immature was the most abundant mosquito species (76%), followed by Culex quinquefasciatus (19%), and the Aedes albopictus (5%). The most productive breeding sites were flooded floors, drains, plastic containers, elevator shafts, water drums, and pails. We discovered that the immature mosquitoes were most abundant from the ground floor to the second floor, with Ae. aegypti immature could disperse up to the thirteenth floor. This study has provided useful information to the health department regarding the preferred breeding habitats of vector mosquitoes at construction sites. Consequently, it contributes to effective and efficient vector prevention and control measures, thus saving time and manpower.

      Water ecosystem is an important factor determining regional social and economic development. It is an irreplaceable natural resource for human survival, productivity and development. This study takes the TOPSIS method to identify high weight indicators and measure the closeness of the evaluation objects, and tries to use it as a reference to further classify the water resources carrying capacity of the research objects into superior and inferior levels by the Adversarial Interpretative Structural Model (AISM), with 11 provinces in the Yangtze River Economic Belt as the study area. The findings reveal that the regional water resources carrying capacity is influenced by GDP per capita, the proportion of tertiary industry, ecological water consumption rate, and urbanization rate. Zhejiang and Shanghai have a high water carrying capacity, while Guizhou, Jiangxi and Hubei provinces rank low. The TOPSIS-AISM model outperforms the traditional TOPSIS model and can be applied to similar comprehensive evaluations.

      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.
