  The degree of air pollution in Quetta city was determined on heavy traffic areas using roadside trees as an indicator. The leaves of Cupressus sp., Fraxinus excelsior, Pinus longifolia, Rubinea pseudoaccasia were collected and analyzed for their macro, micro elements and heavy metal concentration. These elements were detected and estimated by using atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Significantly high contents of zinc, manganese, lead and cadmium were found. These are highly toxic for all living systems. The common source of these elements on tree leaves is motor vehicles. M.A. Jinnah road was found to be most polluted.

  Presence of biologically and pharmacologically active non-toxic alkaloids in locally used herb Gentiana olivieri has proved to be a potent naturally occurring medicine. Clinical study of this medicinal herb was conducted to evaluate its antihypertensive effect and to ascertain its safety and efficacy in human subject.

  An entomological study of Anopheles species was conducted to find the seasonal variation of prevalent vectors to establish their correlation with the malaria parasite in Quetta. Vector collection was done according to World Health Organization standards of surveying. Analyses reveal the predominantly rapid increase in density of Anophles stephensi in rural areas, over Anophles culicifacies. The changing pattern of vectors in rural area must be due to some strong factor, which could obviously be attributed to the migration of million of Afghan refugees living mostly in the suburbs of Quetta.
