Water hyacinth has been identified under seven species and all water hyacinth species comprise the genus Eichhornia, of which Water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) species is common and widely distributed all over the world. Water hyacinth are a free-floating perennial aquatic plant native to tropical and sub-tropical South America; with bright green, waxy leaves and attractive, violet flowers that have yellow strips on the banner petals. These plants tend to form mats on the water surface. Some times water hyacinth can be found growing in muddy soils near the edge of an aquatic system. The leaves are arranged in a rosette. The leaf stem usually is some what to completely swollen and filled with spongy tissue and thus acts as afloat. The blade of the leaf is oval to round and usually much smaller than the leaf stem. The common water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) is vigorous growers known to double their population in two weeks. Water hyacinth grows rapidly. Growth of more than one tone of dry ...

We assessed the effect of two biological control agents, the mirid Eccritotarsus catarinensis (Carvalho) and the weevil Neochetina eichhorniae (Warner), singly or in combination, on the competitive ability of their host plant, water hyacinth, Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms-Laub., grown in a screen house, in competition with another aquatic plant (Pistia stratiotes L.). Water hyacinth plant growth characteristics measured included fresh weight, leaf and petiole lengths, number of inflorescences produced, and new shoots. Without herbivory, water hyacinth was 18 times more competitive than water lettuce (across all experimental combinations of initial plant densities), as estimated from fresh weights. Both insect species, singly or in combination, reduced water hyacinth plant growth characteristics. E. catarinensis alone was less damaging than the weevil and under normal conditions, i.e., floating water hyacinth, is not expected to increase control of water hyacinth beyond that of the weevil. ...

In this current study different types of treatments highest glucose concentration was obtained by hot water treated method. In addition, glucose was produced from water hyacinth using cellulytic enzyme pseudomonas sp., isolated from cow dung. Glucose concentration and production rate increases with the increasing of substrate concentration and enzyme loading, particle size 45µm and a pH 6.00 and temperature 40°C are the optimum for glucose production. A kinetic model rate expression has been developed for enzymatic hydrolysis of water hyacinth based on the Michaelis - Mentens model and parameters are determined. 0.15gm Reducing sugar are separated from the mixture of glucose water solution using 2 gm of water hyacinth. 0.531mg/l Cellulytic composition in water hyacinth are
Abstract. Cholera outbreaks continue to occur regularly in Africa. Cholera has been associated with proximity to lakes in East Africa, and Vibrio cholerae has been found experimentally to concentrate on the floating aquatic plant, water hyacinth, which is periodically widespread in East African lakes since the late 1980s. From 1994 to 2008, Nyanza Province, which is the Kenyan province bordering Lake Victoria, accounted for a larger proportion of cholera cases than expected by its population size (38.7% of cholera cases versus 15.3% of national population). Yearly water-hyacinth coverage on the Kenyan section of Lake Victoria was positively associated with the number of cholera cases reported in Nyanza Province (r = 0.83; P = 0.0010). Water hyacinth on freshwater lakes might play a role in initiating cholera outbreaks and causing sporadic disease in East Africa.

Weevils Wobble When you go through all the trouble of importing non-native insects into your state as a biological control, you want to be sure theyre doing their job. Thats why researchers were relieved to discover whats been behind the decline in effectiveness of two South American weevil species that were introduced to control burgeoning populations of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) in Florida. According to this report in Agricultural Research magazine, the culprit is a strain of microsporidia that is infecting the weevils (Neochetina eichhorniae and N. bruchi), causing loss of life and a major decrease in reproductive rates. Now that scientists know whats killing the weevils, they are looking into ways to control the microsporidia, including cold treatments and drugs. Microsporidia themselves are sometimes employed as biocontrol agents ...

Understanding the genetics of colonization is important not only to evolutionary studies and population biology, but also to agriculture and conservation. Basic features of weediness and successful worldwide colonists are briefly reviewed with emphasis on genetic processes. Based non a detailed review of breeding system and genetic variation patterns in Echinochloa (barnyard grass) and Eichhornia (water hyacinth), two major aquatic weeds, strong evidence is found for the effects of founder events as well as strong selective pressures during colonization. Information on the genetic structure, reproductive biology, and evolutionary dynamics in the past and present would be helpful in devising effective methods of biological control. For example, there is indirect evidence for greater success in the biological control of asexually reproducing weeds. This is clearly a largely unexplored area in population biology. ...

he presence of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and ammonia (NH3) in biogas pose serious human health and environmental challenges. In this study, H2S and NH3 were successfully removed from biogas using water hyacinth-derived carbon (WHC) nanomaterials. Carbonization temperature, biogas flow rate, mass of the adsorbent and activating agent (KOH/water hyacinth (WH)) ratio were found to greatly influence the efficiency of the H2S and NH3 removal. The adsorption capacity of both H2S and NH3 was found to increase with the carbonization temperature as carbon materials prepared at 450, 550, and 650°C afforded removal efficiencies of 22, 30, and 51% for H2S and 42, 50, and 74% for NH3, respectively, after contact time of 2 h. Similarly, the KOH/WHC ratio showed huge impact on the adsorptive removal of the two species. WH materials carbonized at 650°C and activated at 700°C using 1:4, 1:2, and 1:1 KOH/WHC ratios showed removal efficiencies of 80, 84, and 93% for H2S and 100, 100, and 100% for NH3, ...

Water SA [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.1, pp.21-26. ISSN 1816-7950.. Important pollutants in textile effluents are mainly recalcitrant organics, colours, toxicants and inhibitory compounds, surfactants, chlorinated compounds (AOX), pH and salts. An aerobic system using a continuous stirred bed reactor (SBR) was continuously operated at constant temperature and fed with textile wastewater (pH 7 and total chemical oxygen demand (COD) 1 700 mg/ℓ).This report is focused on the decolourisation treatment of effluent by a bacterial consortium (Sphingomonas paucimobilis, Bacillus sp. and filamentous bacteria). The influence of the different mixtures of 3 strains on the decolourisation of effluent (cell density fixed at OD600 = 1) was studied using an equilateral triangle diagram and mixture experimental design to assess colour and COD removal ...
In general grass carp are not specialised feeders and have been shown to consume over 170 different species of aquatic plants. Mitzner (1978) and Zonneveld and Van Zon (1985) concluded that little shift in the qualitative structure of plant species in a water body will be evident after stocking with grass carp, although the biomass of vegetation would decrease. The less preferred species with spiny or hard tissues are not consumed until later in the season after supplies of other plants have declined. Smaller fish prefer different species of plant compared to the larger sizes, hence, over a period of time, the control of plants in a water body will be fairly comprehensive.. The differences in food preferences seen by some authors are a result of the size of the fish used or the ambient temperature. Smaller fish with smaller mouths prefer softer tissues of the submerged vegetation, and the growing roots of water hyacinth. Thus it would be preferable to stock smaller grass carp with water hyacinth ...

This year, we have new combos of the fragrant, beautiful hyacinth, made famous by Madame de Pompadour, the beautiful mistress of Frances King Louis XV. Much more than a mistress, Pompadour was a highly educated beauty whose taste in art and fashion were followed by all. For flowers, she favored the Dutch hyacinth over all others, and loved its intoxicating perfume. She filled the vast Versailles gardens with them in spring, and for the rest of the year, they bloomed in every room in the palace in hyacinth glasses. Now its your turn to enjoy these heavenly-scented flowers. Forcing
How do I use grape hyacinth most effectively in my garden? Grape hyacinths work well when they are planted in rock gardens, in the front of flowerbeds and borders, or along walkways and paths. They also mix well with other early blooming bulbs, and are a popular container plant. Grape hyacinths have their greatest impact when they are grown in masses and loose drifts. They are particularly attractive when allowed to naturalize under trees and shrubs. Because grape hyacinth tends to releaf in the fall, this plant can provide an attractive element to a garden in the fall and winter landscape if weather conditions are mild. In addition, grape hyacinth is an excellent cut flower and can be used for indoor forcing [see University of Wisconsin Garden Facts XHT1144 ("Forcing Bulbs") for details].. There is a famous planting of grape hyacinth at Keukenhof Gardens in The Netherlands known as the Blue River. This dense planting of M. armeniacum winds past trees, shrubs, and other spring flowers, giving ...
Grape hyacinth stomata. Polarised light micrograph of tissue from a grape hyacinth (Muscari sp.) plant, showing the stomata (round). Stomata are pores that open and close in order to regulate gas exchange in a plant. The aperture of each stoma is controlled by a pair of specialised cells known as guard cells (sausage-shaped). These cells swell to close the pore and shrink to open it. Stomata are found mainly on the underside of leaves. Magnification: x200 when printed 10 centimetres wide. - Stock Image C026/2568

AU - Guo, Gang. AU - Chen, Guanghao. PY - 2017/6/15. Y1 - 2017/6/15. N2 - In this study the feasibility of treating dyeing wastewater with sulfate reducing granular sludge was explored, focusing on decolorization/degradation of azo dye (Procion Red HE-7B) and the performance of microbial consortia under alkaline conditions (pH = 11). Efficiency of HE-7B degradation was influenced strongly by the chemical oxygen demand (COD) concentration which was examined in the range of 500-3000 mg/L. COD removal efficiency was reduced at high COD concentration, while specific removal rate was enhanced to 17.5 mg-COD/g VSS h−1. HE-7B removal was also improved at higher organic strength with more than 90% removal efficiency and a first-rate removal constant of 5.57 h−1 for dye degradation. Three dye-degradation ...

Alligatorweed is becoming more challenging throughout Louisiana. Grasp at 2.3 ounces per acre controls alligatorweed as well as 11 ounces per acre of Grandstand for about four weeks but is less effective after that. The best alligatorweed control - 90 percent four weeks after treatment and 85 percent six weeks after treatment - was observed from 2.9 ounces of Grasp per acre or 1 pint of Grandstand per acre. Grasp plus Grandstand at lower rates has not been effective at controlling alligatorweed. It is expected that Grasp will be an effective tool for controlling new alligatorweed infestations. However, in fields where alligatorweed has been allowed to establish an extensive root system, Grasp will only provide suppression ...

Human action in fulfillment of their daily activities, inadvertently have increased the number of inorganic materials in water and pollute water. For example, removal of the detergent into the water can adversely impact on aquatic organisms. Paddy soil fertilization with artificial fertilizers or farm, then went into the water will cause the growth of aquatic plants that are not controlled, called eutrophication or blooming. Some types of plants such as algae, water hyacinth spikes and will grow rapidly and cover the surface of the waters so that sunlight does not penetrate to the bottom waters. As a result, plants that are under the surface can not photosynthesize, so the levels of dissolved oxygen in water decreases ...
The preparation of the Peoples Biodiversity Registry to document biological resources and knowledge related to those resources is one of the important tasks of the committee.
