STUDY OF GROWTH PROMOTION OF AVICENNIA MARINA SEEDLINGS BY PGPB ISOLATED FROM MANGROVES IN NAVI MUMBAI

STUDY OF GROWTH PROMOTION OF AVICENNIA MARINA SEEDLINGS BY PGPB ISOLATED FROM MANGROVES IN NAVI MUMBAI

Mangroves are essential for coastal cities such as Navi Mumbai, where they act as a buffer between the land and sea. Yet they are destroyed on a large scale for urban development. Mangrove regeneration programs compensate for such losses, by planting mangrove saplings in new areas. The growth of such saplings can be promoted by the use of PGPB (Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria). However, growth promoting bacteria indigenous to mangrove areas in Navi Mumbai have been largely unexplored. This study was aimed at examining bacterial strains isolated from mangroves in Navi Mumbai for their ability to promote the growth of seedlings of Avicennia marina, the dominant mangrove species in the area. Seedlings of the plant were grown in mangrove soil inoculated with the test isolates, following which their growth was compared with that of control plants grown in uninoculated mangrove soil. All the inoculated plants showed a significant increase (upto 85%) in their protein content as compared to the control plants. Most of the plants also showed an increase in their chlorophyll-a content (upto 24%), wet weights (upto 28%) and dry weights (upto 57%). These results indicate that the isolates have the ability to promote the growth of Avicennia marina plants. Further studies using combinations of the isolates can help in

Pediatric Peak Expiratory Flow Rates Nomogram for Healthy School Children of Navi Mumbai.

Pediatric Peak Expiratory Flow Rates Nomogram for Healthy School Children of Navi Mumbai.

among the lung function test, which not only is helpful in evaluating obstructive airway diseases but also helps in monitoring the disease progression and response to treatment. Peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) is a person’s maximum flow rate that is produced during a forceful exhalation after a full inspiration and correlates reasonably well with the predicted value for the forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), as measured with a peak flow [1]. The measurement of peak expiratory flow was pioneered by Martin Wright. PEFR is voluntary effort and muscular strength dependent parameter. Studies have documented that a wide range of variables like geographic (urban to rural), climatic (high to low altitudes), anthropometric (age, sex, weight and height), nutritional and socioeconomic status are associated with regional differences in lung functions [2- 5]. Sustained air pollution levels prevalent in urban megacities could be another reason for regional differences. Children of different regions of the same country should have their own regional nomograms. Hence the study was undertaken to establish nomogram for PEFR in healthy Indian school children of Navi Mumbai and then to derive prediction equations for PEFR with anthropometric measurement which had a best co-efficient and use this in the said population.
