The aim of this paper is to present the antibacterial activity of peppermint, basil and rosemary essential oils obtained by steam distillation after the preservation period using various methods. The processing methods used for the plant materials were natural drying, freezing and gamma ray irradiation. The oils were extracted after certain preservation periods from Mentha piperita, Ocimum basilicum and Rosmarinus officinalis aromatic plant materials. The antibacterial activity of the studied essential oils was assessed against 8 bacterial strains (Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus viridans, Enterococcus faecalis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Serratia marcescens). Antibacterial activity of the essential oils was investigated using disc diffusion method. The results showed that the antibacterial activity depends on the type of aromatic plant and the type of used preservation methods. The most active essential oils against the tested bacteria were, in descending order rosemary, peppermint and basil.

There is a plurality of studies highlighting the beneficial properties of blackcurrant, especially the anti-oxidant ones. These are mainly due to phenols, of which anthocyanins and flavonoids stand out, yet the mechanisms by which the active substances in blackcurrant act are not fully understood. Blackcurrant extract has a complex biochemical composition, it contains tannins, green volatile oils, terpenic carbides, B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, organic acids (citric, malic), pectins, sugars, anthocyanins, terpenes, oils fats, flavonoids (myricetol, cvercetol, camphor), pectin, calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, vitamin PP. The research was carried out between 2017 and 2020. By chemical and biochemical analyses, the content of blackcurrant fruits was monitored over time, as well as the presence of some chemical or biochemical compounds with sulphur, with harmful action on the human organism, in the extract. It was sought to know if the presence of sulphur springs would have an influence on the chemical and biochemical composition of blackcurrant fruits

Orchids are widely known for their economic importance, but less so from a medicinal point of view. This paper aims to provide information on the antimicrobial and antioxidant potential of methanolic and ethanolic extracts obtained from orchid wastes of Phalaenopsis species, respectively dried leaves, stems and roots. Due to their high diversity, bioactive plant compounds are of particular interest. The antioxidant potential was studied by measuring the phenolics, the chlorophyll and carotenoids content; in addition, DPPH assay was used. Antimicrobial tests were done by spot method on different microorganisms (Staphylococcaceae, Bacillaceae, Enterobacteriaceae family and Candida sp.). The results show a medium to high antioxidant potentila of Phalaenopsis wastes extracts (leaves and roots) and a promising inhibitory activity of leaves extracts against Staphylococcus aureus methicillin resistant and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Stem extracts had inhibitory activity of Bacillus cereus. This may open future possibilities of using Phalaenopsis wastes in pharmaco-cosmetic industry

Considering the vital role of water in all periods of human life and the increasing population, water deficit crisis was predictable. This condition lead the water experts to implement the water resource projects to supply suitable water for public population. In this paper, analysis the impact of construction the water resource projects used the Bayesian networks. The Hana dam as a case study has investigated in Iran. In this research by used the questionnaire tools score based on indexes was calculated, then by use the Netica software the total impacts index was calculated. This managerial pattern has been presented based on talents, relative advantages and sensitivity of this study. After the determining the most important parameters of Hana dam construction affect in agricultural sector through literature review and interview, summarized these effects in three groups in social, economic and ecological dimension. Then by use the sensitivity test were prioritized the major factors of the dam construction effects. Effects were classified in three categories of good, average and weak. Also the results of research indicate that the most of effects of this project (Hana dam construction for agricultural sector) was in good class category with 51.6% of total positive effects. The results of the sensitivity analysis showed that the economic nodes have the positive effect but ecological and social nodes have the positive and negative effects in Hana areas.

Survival status of aqua fauna is estimated by studying the dynamic behaviour (motion) in underwater environment. Survival status of aqua fauna particularly, shrimp is estimated to prevent huge economic losses to the aqua farmers. A novel approach has been proposed in this research work to address this issue through segmentation, extraction of features, motion analysis and classification of aqua fauna from the pond aquaculture video sequences. First, the content-based video is translated into frames, and the image content is segmented using the Background Subtraction algorithm. Then, shrimp motion analysis is done with the assistance of the optical Flow algorithm. At the same time, shrimp body feature is extracted by Edge detection method for Shape analysis. Finally, the Decision Tree classifier is constructed to estimate the status of shrimp is alive or dead. Real-time video sequences of shrimp in pond aquaculture have illustrated the effectiveness of our process. The projected method shows that the results are more accurate to estimate the shrimp survival status as well as providing GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) in shrimp cultivation to alert the aqua farmers in advance to avoid economic loss

The results of determining the frost resistance of nine introduced species of woody plants in an urbanized environment (on the example of Lutsk city) are presented. The effect of low temperatures on woody plants has been experimentally determined. The degree of damage to the tissues of shoots (bark, cambium, wood, core, buds) by direct freezing using a system of coefficients was studied. The basic patterns of tissue damage are established, taking into account their physiological inequality in vital activity and regenerative capacity of plants. A comparative analysis of the assessment of damage to introduced species depending on the freezing temperature is presented.

Geographic origin of durian (Durio zibethinus Murray) can influence consumers purchasing decisions. A guaranteed geographical origin is extremely useful to maintain the credibility and popularity of this fruit. The objective of this work is to confirm geographical identification (GI) of durian Monthong from Prachuap Kiri Khan Province from south of Thailand which achieved the GI lable from the department of intellectual property by near infrared spectroscopy (NIRs). Total of 60 durian Monthong samples were acquired in the wavenumber range of 12,500-4,000 cm-1 by FT-NIR spectrometer. The sample presentation for scanning were 3 forms including intact peel (with thorns), cut-thorns peel and stem of the fruit. Soft independent modeling of class analogy (SIMCA), partial least squares discriminant analysis (PLS-DA) and support vector machine classification (SVMC) were used to establish identification model using the full spectra. Overall classification accuracy of SVMC was the highest in training and validation set of stems which was 100% and 100%, respectively. This study indicated that NIRs might be a method to guaranteed geographic origin of durian Monthong from Prachuap Kiri Khan. However, more robust model should be developed by using more samples.

The present study was carried out between January and October 2018, in order to determine the infection of Eustrongylides excisus Jägerskiöld, 1909 in some fish species inhabiting Eğirdir Lake - the second largest freshwater lake of Turkey. Parasite infection was detected in host species belonging to Konya tooth-carp (Aphanius iconii Akşiraz, 1948), Big-scale sand smelt (Atherina boyeri Risso, 1810), Caucasian dwarf goby (Knipowitschia caucasica Berg, 1916) and pike-perch (Sander lucioperca Linnaeus, 1758). The highest prevalence of infection (21.4%) was determined in S. lucioperca. The mean intensity ranged from 1.25 nematode/fish in K. caucasica to 2.3 nematodes/fish, in S. lucioperca. The nematode E. excisus was recorded for the first time on Caucasian dwarf goby, a non-native fish species in Eğirdir Lake. In addition, this research provides useful data regarding histopathology effects of E. excisus in all studied teleost species. Hyperaemia, edema, microhaemorrhages, inflammatory reaction and necrosis were observed around the encysted parasites.
