Phytosociological analysis of traditionally managed sacred grove in transitional ecosystem of eastern lateritic part of India

Giriş: Probiyotikler, canlı mikrobik gıda takviyeleridir. İddia edilen sağlık destekleyici özellikleri sebebiyle, muazzam birpiyasa değerine ve biyolojik potansiyele sahiptirler. Bu yüzden bu çalışmada, seçilmiş üç Lactobacillus acidophilussuşunun probiyotik potansiyeli karşılaştırmalı olarak çalışılmıştır.Metot: Seçilmiş Lactobacillus acidophilus suşları (NCIM 2660, NCIM 2903 ve NCIM 2285), pH (pH2.5) ve oxgall (%0.3)toleransları, Caco-2 hücrelerine yapışmaları, test mikroorganizmalarına karşı antimikrobiyal özellikleri veantibiyotiklere hassasiyetleri açısından değerlendirildi. Bulgular: NCIM 2903 suşunun öne çıkan özellikleri; yüksek asit toleransı, bütün test mikroorganizmalarına karşıantagonistik aktivite ve Caco-2 hücrelerine yapışması (100 Caco-2 hücresine 225±33 hücrenin yapışması) idi. NCIM2285 suşu safraya tolerans sergiledi ve kullanılan beş antibiyotiğin varlığında çoğalamadı. NCIM 2285 suşu Caco-2hücrelerine orta dercede yapıştı. NCIM 2660 suşu, antibiyotik diskleri olmayan kontrollerle kıyaslandığında, on ikiantibiyotiğin hiçbirinde çoğalamadı. Bu arzu edilen bir durumdu. Ancak, zayıf yapışma özelliği sergiledi. Her üç suş içinoptimum çoğalma sıcaklığı 37ºC olarak tespit edildi.Sonuç: Üç suşun probiyotik özelliklerinde önemli farklılıklar olduğu bulundu. Son değerlendirmede, NCIM 2903suşunun potansiyel bir probiyotik olarak kullanılabileceği düşünülebilir. Bu çalışmalar, daha sonraki uygulamalarda,probiyotik mikroorgamizmaların daha rasyonel olarak seçilmelerinde yardımcı olacaktır

Lactobacillus acidophilus Karşılaştırmalı Araştırılması Suşlarının Potansiyel Probiyotik Etkilerinin Karşılaştırmalı Araştırılması

Background: Traditionally managed sacred groves in the lateritic parts of eastern India are acommon phenomenon. Groves located in the transitional ecosystem are characteristically rich inbiodiversity and are found to be showcasing local refuges. Besides the cultural and aesthetic needsof mankind, these ancient forest remnants are the center of attraction to the researchers for theirimmense veritable gene pool thriving on sacred belief. Present study highlights thephytosociological characteristics along with the way of traditional management of a sacred grove.Method: Traditional management practices were observed from the local community. Plants wereidentified following standard literature. Nature of relationship between different climbers andlianas with the major tree species of the grove was studied through cluster analysis, based onpercentage cover data of each of the major climbers and lianas on the host trees.Results: Syzygium cumini, Shorea robusta and Terminalia arjuna contributed most to the architecturebuilt up of the grove. Out of 12 major species of climbers and lianas, Derris scandens showed itsmaximum abundance in terms of canopy coverage throughout the grove followed by Tinosporacordifolia and Gouania tiliaefolia. Certain degree of positive correlation was observed betweendifferent climbers and lianas with the mean height and mean diameter at breast height of the majortree species.Conclusions: High species richness, confinement of the species and less undergrowth are the keycharacteristics of a sacred grove in transitional ecosystem. Opportunistic and aggressive nature ofspreading have rendered Derris scandens, Tinospora cordifolia and Gouania tiliaefolia fittest in thesehighly overlapping niches of the grove. Adaptive management involving the local folk may help theGovernment in formulating the conservation strategies especially in non forest areas
