Their geographical range includes all of Europe, Most of Africa, Indian subcontinent, North, central and south Amercia. For a barn owl to trive in a particular area there must be a high population of rodents, as this is their main source of food. Their ideal habitat would be of a grassland with long hedges and ditches, alot of fenches to perch while they hunt, and ideally a low lying area under 1500 to 2000 meters from sea level. The differences between the common owls habitat and the barn owls habitat is that common owls normally are found in dense forest areas where as barn owns aviod hunting here all together. Barn owls prefer scanty covered areas like forests or farms where food is more accisable.
Materials and Methods Experimental Design Forty (40) male albino rats of sprague Dawley Strain weighing (180 - 200 g) were included in the present study. The rats were obtained from the Laboratory of Animal Colony, Minya, Egypt and were housed in well aerated cages under hygienic condition and were provided commercial rodent diet and water ad libitum for one week for adaptation. Rats were housed in temperature controlled rooms (25°C) with constant humidity and 12h/12h light/dark cycle. After the adaptation period, the rats were divided into five groups (n=8 in each group) as follows: Group 1 (G1): considered as normal control group in which rats were fed on balanced diet for six weeks. Group 2 (G2): served as positive control group in which
In 2008 almost 557.5 thousand tons production of dates was recorded (Al-Hooti et al., 2002). It was reported that 5000 date palm cultivars are found worldwide; out of this 325 cultivars are in Pakistan (Jamil et al., 2010). Date production is about 7.5 million tonnes of fruit worldwide and Pakistan contributes 72 thousand tonnes (FAO, 2011). Composition of date fruit includes seed which is covered by a fleshy peri carp and this fleshy portion constitutes almost 85% to 90% of whole date fruit weight. Date fruit includes almost all nutrients like water,
It has 5-7.5 cm diameter of fruits. Seeds are numerous and arranged in the cells surrounded by slimy transparent mucilage. Seeds have wooly hairs.

In Hindus tradition Bael is generally considered as sacred tree and its leaves are offered to Lord Shiva to worship.
Several million smallholders are spread over an estimated area ranging from 1.65 million hectares to 2.4 million hectares and to a maximum of 3 million hectares. The estimate for palm oil plantations in Nigeria ranges from 169,000 hectares (72,000 ha of estate plantations and 97,000 ha of smallholder plantations) to 360,000 hectares of plantations. Many of these plantations mentioned above are the result of past attempts by the Nigerian government to establish large scale plantations, most of which resulted in complete failure. Examples of such failed efforts are the Cross River State project in 60's and the European Union-funded " palm oil Belt Rural Development Programme" in the 90's. The World Bank has played an important role in the promotion of palm oil business in Nigeria.
CHAPTER 4 RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS 4.1 Introduction This chapter presents and discuss all results obtained from this project. A total of 50 Harumanis Mango from Harumanis Greenhouse in, Kangar, Perlis were used and the weight of the Harumanis Mango were monitored and analysed from 30 DAFB to 94 DAFB. The growth of Harumanis Mango was measured in three interval days which were 3, 5 and 10 days interval. The relationship of the DAFB and the weight of the Harumanis Mango was plotted using MATLAB software and the plotted data were fitted using different equations and the best fit equation was identified. The evaluation of the Harumanis mango fruit weight were done by analysed the trend line from the collected data.
It is a chance seedling selection from ‘Allahabad Safeda’ at Ganesh Khind Fruit Research Station, Pune (Cheema and Deshmukh, 1927). L-49 is a heavy bearer, semi-dwarf tree, with 2.3 to 3.4 m height, vigorous, heavy branching with long flat crown. Leaves are large i.e. 12.8 to 13.2 cm long and 6.8 cm broad, elliptic-ovate to oblong in shape. The fruit is roundish-ovate in shape; skin colour is yellow with creamy-white thick flesh having few seeds.
