The present paper deals with relation between zooplankton and physico-chemical parameters.The physico-chemical parameters investigated were temperature, pH, TDS conductance, DO, COD, chloride, sulphate, nitrate, phosphate, carbon dioxide and hardness. The study also shows the significance of the Pistia species of the lake with phytoplankton blooms have been shown to influence the water quality. Zooplankton have also been the focus of several ecological and physiological studies. For the present work Kutlaq Lake, situated between Daulatabad and Khuldabad was selected. Total 15 genera of phytoplankton were found to be attached to Lemna species and Pista species, Chlorella Spp. © 2012 - Kalpana Corporation. Source

India is a rich storehouse of medicinal plants. All natural products can be termed bioactive molecules, as every diverse molecule possesses one kind or multiple kinds of biological oblique pharmacological activities. The beauty about Natural Products (Herbal Drugs) libraries is the uniqueness in their chemical structural diversity and innovativeness that in compasses varied biological actions. Herbal drugs played an important role in drug discovery and were the basis of most early medicines. The major role of this is also seen in ontological, antihypertensive, immunosuppression and metabolic diseases. Since ages passed over traditional systems of medicine have depended on natural products derived from plant sources. There is a tremendous historical legacy of folklore uses of the plants in medicine. They have been used for the treatment of diseases in almost all the ancient civilization. 80% world population for the health care throughout the world is used nearly only 4% medicinal plants, while only a small percentage of which have been chemically investigated. Today India is a formidable force in generic world pharmaceutical market in the last 20 years, Indian chemist have made great contribution in developing cutting edge technology of active pharmaceutical ingredients. Hence taking all these things into consideration it create sufficient interest to carry out phytochemical analysis of leaves of Catharanthus roseus A. from Benoda region, due to the important pharmaceutical and medicinal properties of Catharanthus roseus A.

The geophytes in the northern Western Ghats are a significant component of the herbaceous flora, both in terms of abundance and diversity, and comprise approximately 10% of plant species. About 186 geophytic taxa were here recorded from northern Western Ghats of India during the present work. Of them, 62 geophytes are known only from northern Western Ghats. At least 22 plant families exhibit this life form. In the study region, geophytes have adapted to a monsoon seasonality. They sprout new foliage with the onset of monsoon rain in June and complete their life cycle in October when monsoon rains halt. Many of them produce flowers during the vegetative growing season but some charismatically flowers in summer season (April–May), often without leaves. A few taxa have abandoned their geophytic habit and grow in seasonal water bodies, and possess leaves without stomata and non-buoyant seeds. © 2015 Check List and Authors. Source

A checklist of endemic flowering plant species of the northern Western Ghats (Sahyadri Ranges) of India is provided along with their IUCN threatened category. There are 159 flowering plant taxa belonging to 81 genera and 31 families found to be strictly endemic to the Sahyadri Ranges. The genus Ceropegia has the largest number (17) of endemic species. Five monotypic genera are restricted to the Sahyadri Ranges. Most of these endemic taxa are restricted to small biogeographical areas and are rare in occurrence. Field assessment has shown that 34 endemic taxa fall into IUCN category Critically Endangered, 18 into Endangered and 20 into Vulnerable. A large number of endemic taxa (34) are known only by their type collection, which could not be recollected even after repeated field explorations undertaken by several workers in their habitat of occurrence in last two decades. Hence, they are put in the category ‘Data Deficient’. © 2014 Check List and Authors. Source
