    Abstract: Objective: The Antimicrobial activity is the potential to inhibit the growth of microbes such as bacteria and fungi. The present study was carried out to investigate the antimicrobial activity present in the leaves, stem and pods of Prosopis cineraria. Methods: The Agar well diffusion method was used to test the antimicrobial activity of various pa... Show More

    Abstract: The relationship between the high heating values (HHVs) and the elemental contents of some freshwater biomass were studied. The results obtained from the ultimate analysis show that the HHVs of the freshwater biomass is a function of total carbon and hydrogen contents but, a weak function of oxygen, nitrogen and sulphur. Analyses of the experimenta... Show More

    Abstract: Polychaetes nereids groups are the most common in shallow marine habitats and abundant in benthic communities. This group was proved to tolerate a high burden of heavy metals within their tissues. The current work assesses the effect of water criteria; sea water temperature, hydrogen ion concentration (pH), dissolved oxygen concentration, turbidity... Show More
