Objective: To survey and document the traditional knowledge related to medicinal uses of animals among the ethnic groups in Karbi Anglong district of Assam.Methods: A long term field survey was conducted from July 2008 to October 2009 by performing personal interviews through structured questionnaire with more than 500 respondents, who provided information regarding the use of different animals and their products in their traditional medicine. Most of the information on the use of various animals in traditional medicine by them was provided by elderly people in the age groups of more than 50 years.Results: A total of 48 different animals were recorded to be used for different ethno-medical purposes against various diseases, including tuberculosis, asthma, cancer, paralysis, jaundice, leprosy, toothache, rabies, dysentery, baldness, rheumatism, arthritis, weakness, piles etc. The highest percentage of animals used for traditional treatment is mammals (about 40%) followed by insects (about 21%) and birds (about 19%).Conclusion: The findings reveal a rich traditional knowledge of indigenous people of Karbi Anglong about the use of animals and their product in traditional medicine. It is suggested that this kind of traditional knowledge should be included into the scientific literature for the conservation and management of medicinal faunistic resources. © 2014, IJPPS.

Iron is an essentially a trace element which is one-fourth largest abundant element. This iron occurs in domestic water as, it lies in the earth crust as rocks, soils, clays, organometallic compounds. This iron present in water sources not only due to manual pollution and may be due to currents, erosion, weathering, precipitation, etc. Of course with the development of the society use of iron alone or along with other metals as alloys is increasing and iron obtained in various water sources used in domestic purposes exists as ferrous, ferric, colloidal form, organic, inorganic or in suspended form (De, 1989). The present study is intended to find out water interactions and monitoring the quality of the various sources of water at several locations and its impact in various fields. The finding reveals that iron present many of the sources is greater than permissible limit (WHO, 1989). © 2010 - Kalpana Corporation.

North Cachar Hills district of Assam, Dimasa, a type of tribal people prepared their indigenous rice beer called Judima. The fermentation of Judima is usually carried out in earthen/aluminum pots at room temperature and takes about 4-5 days for completion of the fermentation. The authors visited some of the rural areas where judima is prepared and the process of preparation was observed and documented. The Carbohydrate, protein, free amino acids and alcohol percentage of the particular tribal wine was estimated to evaluate their nutritional status. Antioxidant activity of Judima along with different plants used for the preparation of Judima was also studied. A short term cytotoxicity study on peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) was carried out to determine its cytotoxic effect on the cells keeping ethanol (50% and 100%) as a standard. The result of present study showed that Judima contains good amounts of protein, carbohydrate and free amino acids with high antioxidant activity.

Phytoplankton and Zooplankton composition and some water quality parameter were investigated in a pond of Lumding town of Assam between 2009 to Sept. 2010. Water Temperature, pH,DO,Free CO 2, acidity, alkalinity and TDS were analyzed. A total of 41 species belonging to chlorophycae. cyanophycae, Macrophytic filamentous algae were identified and a total of 20 species of Rotifera, 2 species of Cladocera and 1 genus of copepods were found. The highest phytoplankton abundance was found in August. The highest abundance of Zooplankton were recorded in July and lowest value in November. Various physico-chemical parameters were studied. The pH of water ranged from 7.57-8.0. The DO ranged from 4.0-4.9 mg/L. Acidity ranged from 30-31 mg/L. Alkalinity ranged from 28-30 mg/L. TDS ranged from 250- 260mg/L. free carbon di-oxide ranged from 30-32.56 mg/L. Temperature ranges from 24-28°C. Copyright © EM International.

Surface water samples were taken and collected from pond and river samples in and around of Lumding Town of Assam and analysed for temperature, pH, conductance, TS, TDS, TSS, turbidity, hardness, total alkalinity, D.O., C.O.D., F -, NO 3 -, HCO 3 -, Cl -, SO 4 -2, Na +, K +, Ca +2, Mg +2, Fe. The results were considered for correlation analysis and it was observed that many of the parameters bear a good positive correlation and some bears a negative correlation.

Ground water samples were collected and analysed from Dug well, Railway supply water (RSW), Public Health Engineering (PHE) supply water and Ring well water samples. The samples were collected from Railway Township area and its adjoining areas for temperature, pH, conductance, TDS, TSS, TS, turbidity, hardness, total alkalinity, D.O., C.O.D., F -, CI -, NO 3 -, HCO 3, -, SO 4 -2, Na + K + Ca ++, Mg +2, Fe. The results were considered for chemical correlation analysis and it was observed that many of the parameters bear good positive correlation but some bears a negative correlation. © EM International.
