The present study includes ethno-medicinal survey of tribal pockets of south east Rajasthan for the documentation of various hepato-protective and hepato-curative plants and their mode of usage. The reported plants were tabulated on frequency coefficient mode as per used by different tribes and localities. These documented plants were also sorted on the basis of secondary data and 20 plants were selected for preliminary screening. For initial screening pyridoxal phosphate (PLP) dependent SGOT/AST (EC 2.6.1.1) was used as a marker enzyme to indicate hepatocytic bio-chemical profile. The protocol included wistar rats of eithes sexes and was grouped as control vehicle, hepato-toxicated, reference and phyto-treated group. The observations were carried out after 24hrs, 48hrs and 72hrs of the last dose. Among screened plants Acacia catechu, Aegle marmelos, Andrographis paniculata, Citrullus colocynthis and Phyllanthus amarus were found to be at par as compared to reference group, treated with silymarin. Selection of such effective hepato-curative plants can be used for further investigations and will assist in opening new avenues for developing a new hepatic drug with low frequency of relapse and side effects.

Visible light-based photo-Fenton-like catalytic performance of Cu3V2 (OH)2O7.2H2O is investigated using methylene blue as the target pollutant. Specific surface area, structure, and particle size distribution of the catalysts and its components are investigated by techniques such as standard Brunauer-Emmett-Teller isotherms, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscope and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy Under optimized conditions in the Cu3V2 (OH)2O7.2H2O-H2O2-visible light system, the degradation efficiency and the pseudo first-order rate constant are found to be 69.07% and 4.23×10-4 s-1 respectively. The new bifunctional material is found to be a promising material for use as a Fentonlike catalyst for the degradation of organic contaminant in waste water. Copper and vanadium leaching from the catalyst is almost negligible, which demonstrates the stability of the catalyst; the catalyst is very stable and can be reused for at least four cycles when operated under near neutral pH.

The present study provides a comparative morphological analysis of spikes in different Indian species of Selaginella. The salient features of spikes including their types and also the shape and margin of sporophylls of the closely related taxa are characteristically useful in taxonomic delineation. We have used the term Leaf-flap, for the first time, and the Sporophyll-pteryx to denote the occurrence of vertical/oblique projection on the dorsal surface of leaf and sporophyll, respectively. The shape and colour of both mega- and micro-sporangia are also helpful in taxonomy; however, their size is not much significant as these are variable within the same spike of the species. A new pattern of sporangial distribution is being reported for the first time in the spike of S. plana (Desv. ex Poir.) Hieron. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Wien.

Twenty Indian species of the lycopod genus Selaginella are studied using both light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy to resolve the variability in the number of megaspores per megasporangium and size, surface ornamentation and micro-sculpture of the megaspores. Comparisons between the new results and previous findings suggest that spore morphology and size are consistent for some species but variable within others. © 2014 © 2014 Collegium Palynologicum Scandinavicum.
