Authors: LAHAI KOROMA, T.B.R. YORMAH, L.M. KAMARA, G.M.T. ROBERT

Abstracts: Pharmacognostic investigation was carried out on dried powdered Leaves of traditional medicinal plant Microdesmis puberula used for stopping excessive bleeding of women during menstruation in Eastern Province of Sierra Leone. The powdered stem bark was found to be dark green in colour with a characteristic grass flavour and bitter taste indicating that the plant organ investigated contained alkaloids. Some constituents gave fluorescence colour changes with the reagents 1M NaOH(aq.), 1M NaOH(alc.), Ammonia, 50% HCl, and 50% HNO3. Fluorescence analysis has been reported to be one of the parameters for pharmacognostic evaluation of crude drugs in traditional medicinal plants. The results phytochemical screening indicates that carbohydrates, alkaloid, flavonoids, tannins, proteins, sterols/terpenes and saponins are present in the ethanol, methanol and aqueous extracts. The petroleum ether and acetone extracts gave the least concentration of the phytoconstituents investigated. The detection of the above secondary plant metabolites support the use of the plant in traditional medicine Elemental analysis on the dried powdered Leaves of Microdesmis puberula was performed with a Niton XL3t GOLD + Hand held X-ray Fluorescence (Thermo Fisher). The Niton Hand held XRF Instrument uses Ag-anode X-ray tube with a voltage of 50kV and equipped with a Si-drift detector (SDD). Accurate energy and efficiency calibrations of the spectrometer were made using a certified reference material – SRM 1573a – Tomato Leaves supplied by the International Energy Agency (IAEA), Vienna, Austria. The spectrum acquisition time was 480sec for the sample and the dead time was around 50%. A total of fifteen elements (K, Ca, Mg, Al, Ti, V, Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn, Rb, Sr, Zr, Mo, and Sc) were investigated using EDXRF. The results indicated that plant organ contained large amounts of nutrients and were rich in K (31614 ± 178.00 ppm), Ca (10872 ± 147.00 ppm), Mg (8122 ± 1434.00ppm), Al (5727 ± 258.00 ppm) and Fe (2670.7± 25.46ppm). The other elements present in smaller quantities were Ti (875 ± 21.00 ppm), Zr (129.36 ±1.29 ppm), Mn (126.34 ± 13.31 ppm), Zn (119.53 ± .33ppm), Sr (68.88 ± 0.94ppm), Sc (68.00 ±12.00ppm), Rb (45.01 ± 1.00 ppm), Cu (23.57 ± 4.46ppm), V (11.99 ± 7.50 ppm) and Mo (4.46 ± 0.81ppm). The presence of potassium, iron, calcium and magnesium in the dried powdered Leaves of Microdesmis puberula plant also support the use of the plant in controlling excessive blood loss during menstruation in women.

Authors: TARIKU HAILU, SHIMELIS AYNALEM, DEREJE YAZEZEW

Abstracts: The ecology, behavior and breeding biology of most of the endemic bird species of Ethiopia have not been fully documented. Yellow Fronted Parrot is one of endemic birds of Ethiopia which is poorly known thus information an observer discovers about it will be new to science. The study was carried out from August 2017 to March 2018 in Zegie peninsula forest to identify Activity Pattern, Flocking Behavior and Habitat Preference of Yellow Fronted Parrot (Poicephalus flavifrons). A systematic random sampling technique, with the variable circular plot method was used. The study plots were selected according to the area in which Yellow-Fronted parrots were observed during the preliminary survey and on the basis of vegetation type. Visits were made two months (August and September) in wet season and two months (January and February) in dry season with ten days in each month and on each visit the area was surveyed from dawn to dusk (6:oo am to 6:00 pm) 50 minutes on each plot. Yellow Fronted parrots were selected randomly during the surveys of the study area and their behavior was observed by using binocular. One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), mean, descriptive statistics and Kruskal-Wallis test were used to analyze the collected data. The time spent by the species on feeding, courtship and resting behaviors was significantly different. However, the time spent by the species on scanning, preening and moving behaviors was not significantly different in the study area regarding to season. Except resting daily time budget of the activity pattern of Yellow Fronted Parrots has no significant difference according to hours of day. In the wet season flocks that were composed of 1 to 6 individual parrots were observed. In the dry season flocks that were composed of 1 to 9 individual parrots were observed. Tree species particularly Juniperus procera, Ficus vasta, Cordia Africana, Celitis africana, Podocarpus falcatus, Prunus africana, Albizia gummifera and Croton macrostachyus were selected by Yellow-Fronted Parrot. In general activity pattern, flocking behavior and habitat preference of Yellow Fronted Parrots showed diference regarding to season and hours of the day. In the study area plantation of indigenous trees like J. procera, F. vasta, C. Africana, C. africana, P. falcatus, P. africana, A. gummifera and C. macrostachyus which are important for Yellow Fronted Parrots has to be strengthened.

RASAYANA THERAPY: A PART OF DAILY REGIMEN FOR HEALTHY LIVING

Authors: DR. ANSHIKA GUPTA, DR. SUMAN MEEENA, PROF. (DR.) VIDULA GUJJARWAR

Abstracts: Ayurveda is perceived as one of the most ancient and well documented system of medicine. Its holistic approach whether for healthy individual or for diseased ones remains unparalleled. The main aim of Ayurveda is prevention of disease and promotion of health for which there are many herbs for daily use. As per Ayurveda the tissues of the body undergo a continuous process, process of decay created by the interaction of Agni (enzymes). If the process is allowed to continue, uninterrupted, the aging comes in early. In young age decay is slow and much less but in old age, normally the destructive activities are enhanced leading to disease and ultimately death. If this decay of cells is somehow slowed down the person leads a better quality of life, free from diseases. To achieve this, individual should adapt to a good quality of diet and regime along with which certain drugs can be taken which will further decrease the decay and enhance the quality of Sapta dhatu(tissues). This can be achieved by including Rasayana as a part daily regimen. Rasayana therapy can be administered to individual either through selected diet, drugs or regime. Apart from healthy individuals, even patients who are suffering from disease can be benefited from this therapy. Here an attempt has been made to throw some light on the role of Rasayana therapy in daily life for healthy living.
