Article
Full-text available
The threat of desertification is considered a global concern that occurs in many environments in different parts of the world, where extensive lands are transformed gradually into desert or semi-desert areas, and this causes economic and health issues. Iraq and many other parts of the Middle East are facing desertification threats in the last twent...

There are increasing needs for developing nontoxic, low-cost, high-yield, and eco-friendly procedures for manufacturing nanoparticles. Nanobiotechnology can be used in food security for improving crop production; nanoparticles could enhance the growth and yield of different crop plants; therefore, this work aimed to improve a new nutrition formula...
Chapter
Herbs with medical value are of great importance as it is widely used in complementary and alternative healthcare and medical practices due to its alleged health benefits, easy availability, perceived effectiveness, and safety. It is a source of natural products with health value which claimed to treat various illness from minor cuts and general in...
Article

The ability of various medicinal plants to generate natural chemicals varies. The total flavonoid compounds and cytotoxic activity of aerial parts of Ferulago abbreviata harvested from Piramagrun Mountain in Iraq's northeast Kurdistan region were investigated for the first time. Total flavonoid compounds (TFCs) were extracted using 10 percent hydro...
Article
Pineapple (Ananas comosus) is one of the tropical fruits that is cultivated in Malaysia for export as well as domestic use. Unfortunately, the production is heavily affected by the red tip disease which was detected in the southern part of Malaysia 3 decades ago. Despite the identification of this disease, causal agent receives less attention from...

Chapter
The main goal of this chapter is to discuss the multiple usage of plants, one of which is its usage for medicinal and pharmaceutical applications besides their potential role in improving the environment. The chapter will be focusing on a few plants which have medicinal properties and potential pharmaceutical/industry applications. Generally, medic...

Nutraceuticals are a category of products more often associated with food but having pharmaceuticals property and characteristics. However, there is still no internationally accepted concept of these food-pharmaceutical properties, and their interpretation can differ from country to country. Nutraceuticals are used as part of dietary supplements in...
Article

In order to achieve phytoremediation during agricultural production, it is essential to identify high genotypes yield that is able of accumulating many types of heavy metals not in the edible parts which have significant nutritional value but in the non-edible parts. This study conducted to estimate the heavy metal ATPases 5 (HMA5), Phytochelatins...

Viciafaba (Faba bean) in the Middle East and North African countries considered as one of the most valuable legume crops. It is a nitrogen main source in the soil. The objective of this research was to estimate response to zinc ion elevation in nutrient media and Vicia faba showed that this plant has the potential phytoremediation ability of areas...
Article
Full-text available
Most lands surrounded electrical power stations in Iraq suffer from a significant pollution with oil sludge contaminated soil (OSCS). A series of experiments were designed to sort out such problem. Surface soil samples were collected from polluted areas surrounding a power station. Bacteria that biodegrade hydrocarbons (Petrophilic bacteria) were i...
Article
Full-text available
One of the major problems face the environment is the pollution caused by electricity power stations which result in a heavy contamination by oil sludge resulting in Oil Sludge Contaminated Soil (OSCS). This contamination affects negatively the eco system and the human health alike. The present investigation was carried out to study the effect of d...
Article

Date palm has antioxidant activity which is able to control cancer cells. This study was designed to assess the anti-tumor activity of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Phoenix dactylifera L. pits extracts against (Hela) and (L20B) cancer cell lines. HPLC technique detected that both extracts contained several phenolic compounds (Caffeic acid, Feru...

This study was conducted to evaluate antitumor effects of roesmarinus (Rosmarinus officinalis) extracts (aqueous and methanol) on Rhabdomyosarcoma; RD cell line and a normal cell line; mouse embryo fibroblast; MEF). Chemical detections of Rosemary extracts revealed that the aqueous and methanol extracts were positive for flavonoids, alkaloids, phen...

One of the most important challenges in the ecosystem nowadays is the adaptation of plants to damaged environmental factors. Among them, an important attention is paid to the toxic effects of high concentrations of heavy metals (HM). Copper is essentially but highly toxic HM. In the work, first we established, plant's resistance comparison of the t...
Article
Full-text available
The paper is devoted to the effects of higher concentrations of salts CuSO4 and ZnSO4 on several physiological parameters of two species of plants of spring rape (Brassica napus L.) — Westar and Podmoskovny. It is established that the copper salt had on the plants of both varieties stronger effect than zinc salts. Based on these data, it is conclud...

The main sources of soil contamination with copper are on one hand, mining and processing industry, and on the other hand, the agro-industry, using copper drugs to combat diseases and pests. In connection with this problem is acute treatment of soil for agricultural purposes and urban areas of excess copper. The purpose of this study was to search...
