    Mitochondria: The Powerplant for Eukaryotic Cells

    Mitochondria is a plural term. The sole form of mitochondria is the mitochondrion. The Greek word ‘Mito’ means thread and ‘Condrion’ means granule. So we can say, mitochondria are thread-like or granular structures. They are found in the eukaryotic cells. We know them as the cell powerhouse or the cell …

    Biogenesis of Mitochondria: Hypotheses and the Formation

    All of us know that a living being always rises from another living being. Similarly, in terms of biology, biogenesis is a life-forming process. We also know that calls can have a variety of numbers of mitochondria according to their need. So mitochondrial biogenesis means the process of cells increasing …

    গাছ কি আমাদের দেখতে পায়?

    আমরা আমাদের আশেপাশের গাছগুলোকে ভাবি দৃষ্টিশূণ্য এক জীব। যাদের কাজ কেবল সালোকসংশ্লেষণ করা। তবে আমরা অনেকেই জানি না যে, আমাদের আশেপাশের গাছগুলো আসলে আমাদের দেখতে পায়। তারা তাদের আশেপাশের পরিবেশ পর্যবেক্ষণ করতে পারে। তারা দেখতে পারে আপনি লাল শার্ট পরেছেন নাকি নীল শার্ট? আপনার বাড়ির এক জায়গা থেকে তাদের অবস্থান …

    Photoperiodism: Flowering in Plants (Part I)

    We all have heard about summer or winter crops, but do we know why they are differentiated by seasons? Why are they specific for a certain season to sow and subsequent flowering? Well, the answer is for Photoperiodism. But what is this photoperiodism? If you want to know about photoperiodism, …

    Soil Buffering: Mechanism of Buffering Action & Importance

    Assorted prairie grasses and sunflowers sink their roots deep into soil near Salina, Kansas. These perennials’ root systems grow and strengthen for years, preventing erosion and storing water. The thick sunflower roots in the photo are six feet long.

    Buffers are aqueous systems that tend to resist changes in pH when small amounts of acid (H+) or (OH–) are added. A buffer system composes of a weak acid (the proton donor) and its conjugate base (the proton acceptor). A mixture of equal concentrations of acetic acid and acetate ion …

    Soil Reaction: Soil pH, Sources of H+ & OH- Ions

    In soil, there may be found 3 types of reactions. They are neutral, alkaline, or acidic reactions. The measure of the chemical reaction of soil(degree of alkalinity or acidity) is expressed by its pH value. Soil pH Soil pH is the negative logarithm of the concentration of hydrogen ion (expressed …

    Soil Reaction: Pools of Soil Acidity

    Acidic soil

    Research suggests that three major pools of acidity are common in soils: (1) active acidity due to the H+ ions in the soil solution; (2) salt-replaceable (exchangeable) acidity, involving the aluminum and hydrogen that are easily exchangeable by other cations in a simple unbuffered salt solution, such as KCI; and …
