Agricultural research centers and indigenous knowledge systems in a worldwide perspective: where do we go from here?

, : Agricultural research centers and indigenous knowledge systems in a worldwide perspective: where do we go from here?. Studies in Technology and Social Change, Technology and Social Change Program, Iowa State University ( 11): 10-20

This paper examines the value and practicality of incorporating indigenous knowledge components in agricultural research to augment sustainable development that benefits all rural people equally, men and women alike. It gives a brief evaluation of the trend toward homogeneity of global resources, and proposes an alternative, guaranteeing diversity and preservation.

The salivary gland is a target organ of organophosphate pesticides (OPs). Inhibition of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) by OPs leads to a decrease in acetylcholine (ACh) breakdown that results in overstimulation of muscarinic cholinergic receptors (mC...

Carotenoids were oil extracted from shrimp-cephalothorax meal at two meal:oil ratios (1:5 and 1:10) and two meal-particle sizes (0.150 and 0.150-0.177 mm). Extraction results were significant at 0.150 mm in particle size and a meal:oil ratio of 1:...

The effect of various clinically useful anti-parkinson drugs was examined on reserpine-induced catatonia and oxotremorine-induced tremors in mice. Amantadine, apomorphine, atropine, clonidine and L-dopa significantly reversed reserpine-induced cat...

We looked for a feedback system in Escherichia coli that might sense the rotational bias of flagellar motors and regulate the activity of the chemotaxis receptor kinase. Our search was based on the assumption that any machinery that senses rotatio...
