Salinization is increasing on a global scale, decreasing average yields for most major crop plants. Investigations into salt resistance have, unfortunately, mainly been focused on conventional crops, with few studies screening the potential of available halophytes as new crops. This study has been carried out to investigate the mechanisms used by quinoa, a(More)
The main purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of helminths of goats such as Fasciola hepatica, Haemonchus contortus, Paramphistomum cervi, Oesophagostomum columbian, Cotylophoron cotylophorum, Monezia expansa, Oestertagia oestertagi and Oestertagia circumcincta. The overall prevalence of all species of helminthes was 52% in goat. The(More)
DNA barcodes were obtained for 81 butterfly species belonging to 52 genera from sites in north-central Pakistan to test the utility of barcoding for their identification and to gain a better understanding of regional barcode variation. These species represent 25% of the butterfly fauna of Pakistan and belong to five families, although the Nymphalidae were(More)
Sequences from the DNA barcode region of the mitochondrial COI gene are an effective tool for specimen identification and for the discovery of new species. The Barcode of Life Data Systems (BOLD) (www.boldsystems.org) currently hosts 4.5 million records from animals which have been assigned to more than 490,000 different Barcode Index Numbers (BINs), which(More)
Parachute transplanting method of rice as compared to line transplanting and farmer’s method of random transplanting was studied at 10 different locations viz., Kamonki, Wazirabad, Daska, Pasroor, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Lahore, Hafizabad and Sheikhupura during 2003 and 2004. Super Basmati was used as test variety. Yield and yield components of three(More)
It is based on the experiments conducted for study of chromium removal and recovery from chrome tanning waste water of leather industry for chromium removal about 98.5% was achieved at pH 8.0 and at this pH reduction of COD is 61.5 % and percentage for removal of color from the wastewater of leather industry is 99.5% under applying the batch experimental(More)

The use of composite materials has been increased in strengthening of concrete columns in recent years. One of the applications is to use FRP (fiber reinforced polymer) reinforcement instead of steel reinforcement in concrete columns. In this paper, the results of an analytical investigation on the behavior of RC column reinforced with Steel rebar and Glass(More)
