International Journal of Humanities and Social Science

Industrial activities result in heavy metal pollution of large areas of land, which greatly affects natural vegetation. Understanding the mechanism of how plants combat heavy metals adverse effects is hence of great importance. Materials and Methods: Two different localities were chosen; one locality was in the vicinity of gypsum factory and the other one was 25 km away from the factory.

Two Zygophyllum species Z. The effects of soil heavy metal stress on shoot heavy metal concentrations, lipid peroxidation, antioxidant enzyme activities and the root plasma membrane PM lipid composition were analyzed. Results: Heavy metal concentrations and Lipid peroxidation increased in the shoot of both species grown in the polluted area.

PM total lipids, phospholipids, glycolipids and sterols were decreased in Z. Heavy metal stress increased phosphatidylethanolamine PE and decreased phosphatidylinositol PI and phophatidylglycerol PGwith no significant change in phosphatidylcholine PC in the root PM of both species. Conclusion: the results suggest that efficient antioxidant machinery and favorable PM lipid homeostasis are important to enable Zygophyllum species to withstand the prevailing heavy metal stress.

Effect of heavy metals on plasma membrane lipids and antioxidant enzymes of Zygophyl I urn species. Eurasia J Biosci. Background: Increasing anthropogenic influences on the environment, especially urbanization, have caused adverse effects on the natural ecosystems.

As a result, green campuses have become rare places where the characteristics of the area flora can be observed. In this context, the aim of the present study is to identify the floral richness of the campus of the Buca Faculty of Education BEFan important floristic area within the city of Izmir, and to clarify how this richness is used in the educational processes.

Method: The study was carried out between the periods Plants growing on the BEF Campus constitute the research material. Plants growing on the campus were examined, necessary samples were collected. After the determination of plants, how they were used in B.

Sc, M. For this purpose, interviews were performed with seven teaching staff from the Buca Faculty of Education Department of Biology. Results: A total of plant taxa belonging to 52 families were identified in the campus area.

Further study of the families showed that the family Rosaceae is represented by the highest number of taxa, fourteen, followed by Fabaceae represented by nine taxa.

In addition, according to opinions of the academic staff, different ways of using such plants in training were identified and discussed. Conclusion: A principal conclusion to be drawn is that a general programme in Applied Biology and Ethnobotany should be made available to all students. When the increase of plant usage for medicinal purposes in recent years is taken into consideration, field studies related especially to ethnobotany can be a very useful specialisation for M. It would be beneficial for graduates in a variety of disciplines, including Botany, as well as Agriculture, Anthropology, Forestry, Medicine, Pharmacology, Sociology, and others.

Background: The presence of brick kiln along the Hoogly river sites of lower Bengal is very usual and this phenomenon is not only restricted to India alone but also to other south Asian countries.

The abandoned brick kiln are important habitat for the formation of mangrove community due to tidal action, loose silty substratum and less anthropogenic interference. In this context, the aim of the present study is to visualize how the structural and association pattern regulate the community dynamics of a mangrove ecosystem. Materials and Methods: The entire study area was divided into 37 units Quadrats of Structural parameters like density, relative density, abundance, relative abundance, frequency, relative basal area were measured based on vegetation map, prepared through satellite image and ground truthing.

Results: Out of 10 species under 10 genera and 9 families found in the present habitat, Sonneratia caseolaris is the only mangrove tree species with individuals along with other mangrove associates like Cryptocoryne ciliata, Crinum viviparum, Acanthus ilicifolius and Denis scandens.

The high importance value index of Sonneratia caseolaris, Cryptocoryne ciliata, and Crinum viviparum indicated their significant role in community formation. The strong positive association of these 3 species also suggests helping in developing community in stressed environment. Conclusion: Identification of such potential mangrove habitat and study of their community dynamics would be helpful to find out the nature of mangrove establishment for future afforestation programme of threatened mangrove species.

Knopf: New York, Survive, Critique, and Create: Guiding Radical Pedagogy and Critical Public Scholarship with the Discursive Guideposts of Ecopedagogy Tema Milstein Introduction This essay explores the shared characteristics of ecopedagogy, radical pedagogy, and critical public scholarship in order to explicate directional guideposts for scholars and students wishing to engage in promoting environmental and social justice through their pedagogy or scholarship.

I look to practices of transformative education for a core framework to connect students and teachers to understanding, critiquing, and struggling with forces at work in their communities and within global systems. These guideposts are interrelated and, though separated into three characteristics with multiple facets, can be viewed as interdependent. Under the survive guidepost, I investigate facets of contextualization, development of a critical moral character, the pain that often accompanies paradigm shifts, and the building and recognition of community and interrelatedness.

Under the critique guidepost, I explore critique at two levels: the level of scholars and the level of their publics and students. Under the create guidepost, which engages both the material and spiritual creative contexts, I elucidate three elements: activism, transformation, and the creation of sites of change. In identifying and exploring these guideposts, I provide examples and build details into core ecopedagogy frameworks that I believe can serve as guiding characteristics in illustrating functional radical pedagogy and public scholarship in practice.

Whereas academics have performed both radical approaches to education and public service in one form or another since the earliest origins of the institution of higher education, I argue that discussions of definitions and delivery often overlook or sidestep fundamental shared characteristics of radical pedagogies and public scholarship practice.

These shared characteristics, which are embedded in philosophies and practices of ecopedagogy, are relatively straightforward, and can serve as directional guideposts for scholars and students wishing to engage in promoting environmental and social sustainability and justice through their pedagogy and scholarship.

Tema Milstein is an assistant professor at the University of New Mexico in the Communication and Journalism Department where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in ecocultural communication. Her work explores how communication as a cultural force closes and opens doors to the re-examination of sustainable human ecological relations. Her research includes critical and cultural investigations into wildlife tourism, urban nature discourse, environmental activism, and marginalized cultural environmental meaning systems.

Ecologically focused practices of transformative education clearly map core underlying characteristics that connect students and teachers to understanding, critiquing, and struggling with forces at work in their communities and within global systems.

These underlying characteristics serve as guideposts that offer a way out of the general collective silence on environmental issues from generative critical pedagogues such as Freire, and map an ecocultural path forward sprung from the writings of some of his contemporary champions e.
