Evaluation of in vitro Spermicidal Potential of Mimusops elengi Linn. (Bakul) in Wild Mice
Different extracts (aqueous, 95% ethanolic and petroleum ether) prepared from fruits were used at different concentrations (10, 20, 40, 80 and 160 mg/ml) and alterations in motility, viability, plasma membrane integrity and morphology of cauda epididymal sperm were studied to evaluate the in vitro spermicidal potential of Mimusops elengi Linn. in wild mice.

Ranking Murrah buffalo Sires using average daily milk yield
Vijay Kumar, Chakravarty AK
Data on first lactation traits of 832 Murrah buffaloes sired by 95 bulls were used for the study. Farm had significant effect on average first lactation daily milk yield (MY/FLL), while season and year of calving did not affect significantly in the present study. Breeding value for MY/FLL was estimated using simple regressed least-squares (SRLS) method.

Carbon Accumulation, Nitrogen Uptake and Mycorrhizal Root Colonization in a Tropical Rice-Wheat System in Northern India
Pushpa Devi, Aggarwal A, Gupta SR
The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of conservation tillage on crop biomass production, carbon accumulation, nitrogen use efficiency, soil carbon storage, and AM mycorrhizal root colonization in a rice-wheat cropping system (located at Mirzapur; 30º16' 15.7''N, 76º 46' 21.3'' E, 252 m) in Ambala district in northern Haryana.

Removal of Fluoride from Drinking water using Fly Ash of Chulhas
Soni R, Modi S
The adsorption capacity of fly ash is much higher than the other adsorbents. The Fly ash was an effective adsorband especially at high concentration of fluoride. This may be because of the presence of unburnt carbon particles in the fly ash which are known to be very efficient adsorbing materials.

Investigations on the Effect of Tungsten Resistant Soil Bacteria against the Toxicity of Tungsten on Spinacea oleracea: a Case Study
Shanware AS, Priya Phadtare
A vegetation experiment was performed to test the bioaccumulation capabilities of two Tungsten Resistant Soil Bacteria (TRSBs) as a consortium - Proteus mirabilis (2K) and Bordetella sp. (3K) – based on their tungsten tolerating and accumulating capacities measured by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) in a previous study.

The proton affinities of a series of heterocyclic compounds pyrrole, furan, thiophene and pyridine in their low-lying excited triplet state: A DFT based comparative study
Biswarup Mandal, Umasankar Senapati, Bikash Kumar Panda, Suman Sengupta
Gas phase proton affinities(PAs) and transition energies of a series of heterocyclic compounds (pyrrole, furan, thiophene and pyridine) and their protonated counterparts have been performed using density functional theory (Becke, Lee, yang and parr [B3LYP]) method using 6-311G(d,p) basis set with complete geometry optimization in their low-lying excited triplet state.
