The influence of different nitrogen source of varying concentrations on biomass production of green algae Scenedesmus was investigated. The result revealed that there was a significant difference among nitrogen sources in promoting algal biomass growth at lower concentrations of 5 and 10 mM. Nitrate was found to be a preferred form of nitrogen source and(More)
Photosynthetic parameters including net photosynthetic rate (P N), transpiration rate (E), water-use efficiency (WUE), and stomatal conductance (g s) were studied in indoor C3 plants Philodendron domesticum (Pd), Dracaena fragans (Df), Peperomia obtussifolia (Po), Chlorophytum comosum (Cc), and in a CAM plant, Sansevieria trifasciata (St), exposed to(More)
The antimicrobial efficacy of seed extracts (methanol, ethanol, propanol, acetone and sterile deionized water) of Camelina sativa cv. Calena (EC643910) against different microbial cultures causing infections/diseases was investigated by agar disc diffusion method. Kanamycin (1000 μg/ml) and clotrimazole (100 μg/ml) were used as standard drugs for(More)
A study was conducted to examine the low temperature (LT) induced osmatic adjustments and antioxidant properties in indoor plants, viz., Philodendron domesticum, Dracaena fragans, Ficus elastica, Chlorophytum comosum and Sansevieria trifasciata for selecting the best candidate plant to be pot-transplanted in closed environments for oxygen enrichment at high(More)
A study was conducted to estimate the effect of UV-C (200–280 nm) radiation stress on growth and physiochemical responses of Camelina sativa L. cv. Calina (EC643910; a potential bio-fuel crop) for its possible mass multiplication at high-altitude under high radiations. The germination percentage in terms of radicle protrusion and opening of cotyledonary(More)
