Glutathione Reductase Activity in Salinity Stressed Indian mustard supplemented with Putrescine and Cadavarine

Vikram Singh, Mishra SN

In the present study, the effect of putrescine and cadavarine on glutathione reductase (GR) was assessed in Brassica juncea (RH-30) seedlings under salt stress. The activity of GR with cadavarine and putrescine in either whole plant stressed under 7 and 14 days of salinity or excised tissues under salinity for 24 hours of stress was changed.

Van Panchayat forest management as option in conserving biodiversity and carbon storage

Vardan Singh Rawat

Many developing nations around the world have been promoting decentralization of natural resource management with the hope that by providing secure tenure to resource use, people dependent on the natural resources for livelihood will seek to conserve them. Forests managed by communities are not only contributed to overall improvement in forest conditions but has also resulted in positive impacts on biodiversity conservation.

Stronger Violation of Local Realism for Three Qubit Systems with a New Bell-type Inequality

Fatemeh Shirdel, Hossein Movahhedian

In this paper we show the new Bell-type inequality for three qubit systems (i.e a tripartite system with two measurements in each side and two outputs for each measurement). This inequality is violated by quantum theory with a factor violation of 3.5 tolerating 0.5 fraction of white noise. Our inequality includes only 19 different joint probabilities whereas in other works it is much more than this. We will also show violation amount of this inequality is 2.5.
