1. Indigenous Ethno-Medicinal and Ethno-Veterinary Practices in Shivalik Hills Zone of Himachal Pradesh, India Gulshan Kumar and Hem Chander Shivalik hills are the rich repository of diverse aromatic and medicinal plants. The present study focused on the analysis, documentation and interpretation of indigenous ethno-medicinal and ethno-veterinary practices in Shivalik hills zone of Himachal Pradesh, North-West Himalaya. During the study, a total of two hundred species of plants have been identified and enumerated. The highest number of species belongs to the families Brassicaceae, Cucurbitaceae, Leguminosae, Asteraceae, Euphorbiaceae, Solanaceae, Ranunculaceae and Sapindaceae. A wide range of diseases of human ranging from cough and cold to asthma and bronchitis, cuts and wounds to snakebites, and are treated by the traditional healers of study area with the help of these local plant remedies.

2. Efficient Color Image Enhancement Using Computational Photography Method Shailendra Singh Rajpoot In this letter, we propose a new global contrast enhancement algorithm using the computational photography method. On the basis of the computational photography, the color and depth image are first partitioned into subintervals using the Gaussian mixture model. The positions partitioning the color are then adjusted such that spatially neighbouring pixels with the similar intensity and depth values can be grouped into the same sub-interval. By approximating the mapping curve of the contrast enhancement for each sub-interval, the comprehensive image contrast can be improved without over-enhancing the local image contrast.Click Here To Read More 15-19 DOWNLOAD PDF

3. Image Patching for Image Denoising: A Review Ashutosh Garg and Amit Shrivastava Usually we have a large number of devices by which we can take pictures, from a digital camera to a cell phone. Problem is that usually we take the picture we don’t see some errors that can be present in the image until we observe it in a computer or printed image. Now the real problem arises because it is almost impossible to recapture the same moment in a new photo. Hence to find a solution for this problem comes the need to implement a method to correct some of the defects that appear. In this paper we compare different methods, problems and their proposed solutions algorithms to patch an original image, using different texture image techniques.Click Here To Read More 20-26 DOWNLOAD PDF

4. Parkinson’s Disease and Depression – Together or Apart: A Review Atul Kabra Depression is a standout amongst the most widely recognized non-motor side effects in Parkinson’s disease (PD). Depression in PD is related with a progressively quick decline in motor and as well as intellectual execution. The frequency of PD increments with age and many age-related comorbid conditions, including cardiovascular ailment. The pathophysiological mechanism involved in depression in PD includes abnormalities of serotonergic, noradrenergic and dopaminergic functions.Click Here To Read More 27-34 DOWNLOAD PDF

5. Bio-Indicator Lichens of Sikandra Hills of North West Himalaya Monika Thakur and Hem Chander During the lichen floristic studies, three hundred specimens of lichens were collected from Sikandra hill, which is situated in Shivalik zone of North West Himalaya. These specimens were then investigated morphochemo-taxonomically and thirty species of lichens have been identified. Out of these, ten species of lichens (viz. Candelaria concolor (Dicks.) Arnold, Heterodermia pseudospeciosa (Kurok.) W.L. Culb, Lecanora chlarotera Nyl, Parmotrema praesorediosum (Nyl.) Hale, Parmotrema tinctorum (Despr. ex Nyl.).Click Here To Read More 35-37 DOWNLOAD PDF

6. Ethnolichenological Notes on Lichens of Sikandra Dhar Region of North-West Himalaya Monika Thakur and Hem Chander Presence of a wide range of secondary metabolites in lichen thallus is variously utilized as medicine, food, fodder, dye and spices. During the lichen floristic studies undertaken during January to September in 2018, three hundred specimens of lichens were collected from Sikandra dhar region of district Mandi (Himachal Pradesh). These specimens were then investigated morpho-chemo-taxonomically and identified. Out of these, seven species of lichens viz. Aspicilia calcarea (L.) Körb., Cladonia coniocraea (Flörke) Spreng., Dermatocarpon vellereum Zschacke, Lecanora chlarotera Nyl., Parmotrema austrosinense (Zahlbr.) Hale, Parmotrema tinctorum (Despr. ex Nyl.) Hale and Punctelia borreri (Turner) Krog are of ethnolichenological importance. Aspicilia calcarea is a source of nutrition for mites, snails and caterpillars.Click Here To Read More 38-41 DOWNLOAD PDF

7. The Himalayan May Apple (Podophyllum hexandrum): A Review Abhishek Sharma and Pankaj Sharma Plant based therapeuticals have been in use from time immemorial. The evolution of human race on this planet must have been closely followed by the advent of several diseases. The process took several million of years before he could identify the natural resources including plants for alleviating diseases by a process of trial and error. About 1,100 plants species are frequently used in Indian medicinal system and out of these, 500 plants are commonly used in preparation of different drugs.Click Here To Read More 42-51 DOWNLOAD PDF
