Chlorophyll production was slightly reduced when plants were exposed to high concentrations of Cu (> 500 mg/L), whereas all the plants growing in Pb-contaminated soils indicated low levels of chlorophyll. Significant amounts of Cu and Pb were accumulated in the roots, with corresponding bioconcentration factors of > 1. Translocation of Cu to the shoots was restricted for plants growing in > 500 mg/L Cu-treated soils, whereas Pb was translocated to the shoots for all treatments, with translocation factors > 1. The Cu and Pb tolerance mechanism was ascribed to chelation and free radical scavenging, through the production of phenolic compounds. Helichrysum splendidum is able to adapt to and ameliorate soils contaminated with low to high levels of Cu(II) and Pb(II) and has potential for application in phytoextraction and phytostabilization of contaminated soils.]]> Thu 08 Apr 2021 15:30:04 SAST ]]> Trophy hunting, conservation, and rural development in Zimbabwe: issues, options, and implications.

A total of 871 ROH island regions which include important environmental adaptation and hermo-tolerance genes such as IL10RB, IL23A, FGF9, IGF1, EGR1, MTOR and MAPK3 were identi􀂦ed (occurring in over 20% of the samples) in FS (n = 37), GP (n = 42), NW (n = 2) populations only. The mean length of ROH across populations was 7.76Mb and ranged from 1.61Mb KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) to 98.05Mb (GP and NW). Distribution of ROH according to their size showed that the majority (n = 1949) of the detected ROH were >5Mb in length than the other categories. Assuming two hypothetical ancestral populations, the population from KZN and LP are revealed, supporting PC 1. The genomes of KZN and LP shared an origin but have substantial admixture from the EC and NW populations. Conclusions: These 􀂦ndings indicated a greater negative impact of inbreeding in recent times which is important for planning conservation strategies. It was revealed that the occurrence of high Ne and autozygosity varied largely across breeds in communal indigenous goat populations at different recent and ancient events when a genome-wide SNP marker was used.]]> Fri 09 Apr 2021 12:26:16 SAST ]]> Optimization of heat treatment parameters of medium carbon steel quenched in different media using Taguchi method and grey relational analysis.
