  The survey of medicinal plants was conducted in different areas of Rawalpindi district. A total of fifteen plant species from thirteen different families were studied for their therapeutic potential. There were eight trees, two shrubs and five herbs in the selected medicinal plants. All the plants were dicotyledons. All were angiosperms. The selected plant species were described taxonomically, with parts of plants used and general medicinal property of each plant. Different medicinal flora were transferred for a live herbarium and a dry herbarium was also maintained. It is desired that the indigenous plant material should be collected, identified, processed and utilized for medicinal purposes.

  Twenty-five fresh water “Thaila”, Catla catla of various sizes were sampled from Korang River Islamabad, to study the parameters of weight-length and condition factor. Log transformed regression were used to test the allometric growth. It was observed that growth in weight is almost proportional to the cube of its length. The value of slope b = 3.05 coincides with the slope of that of an ideal fish. Condition factor remains fairly constant with increasing length or weight. The predictive equation can be used to estimate parameters investigated with a fair amount of accuracy with in the size range studies.

  Acacia modesta Wall (Phulai) belong to family Mimosaceae is being regularly used as miswak (tooth brush) for teeth cleaning in various parts of Pakistan. It is medium size tree, 4-7 meter in height and flowering period is from March-May. The present study was confined to check antibacterial efficacy of twigs extract against dental pathogens. The study was conducted in traditional drug section of National Institute of Health, Pakistan. Lactobacillus (gram positive) strain of bacteria was cultured from dental carriers in control conditions. The effect was determined by disc method. The pharmacognostic study revealed that the extract has significant antibacterial efficacy against lactobacterial triclosan.

  Ninety specimens of Tor putitora were collected from Korang river. Different meristic counts and morphometric measurements of different parameters were studied. All the meristic characters remained constant with increasing body length. The morphometric character showed a gradual increase with increase in body length. On the basis of meristic and morphometric characteristics, the fish was identified as Tor putitora. Morphometric studies of Tor putitora in relation to body length showed that there was isometric growth pattern.

  The present research work is based on nine herbaceous plant species: Agaricus campestris L., Allium cepa L., Allium sativum L., Beta vulgaris L. Citrulus lanatus (Thunb.) Mats. & Nakai, Cucumis sativus L., Lagenaria siceraria (Molina) Standley, Trigonella foenum-graecum L. and Zingiber officinale Roscoe. mentioned in Holy Quran and Ahadith. These plants were collected from Dera Ismail Khan District, NWFP, Pakistan, during 2007. This is a part of check list of medicinal flora and their uses enlisted in Holy Quran, Ahadith and Islamic literature. The main aim of this study is to document the knowledge of ethnobotanical importance of vegetables in the light of Islam. In view of the importance of this study related comprehensive and detailed data was collected. Complete macro and microscopic detailed morphological features of these species were discussed. Results were systematically arranged by alphabetic order of botanical names, family followed by Quranic name, Arabic name, English name, Local/vernicular name, habit and habitat, parts used, medicinal uses and references cited from Holy Quran and Ahadith. It is concluded that herbal medicines are being widely used in the world because of better cultural acceptability, least injurious with none or much reduced side effects.

  The present research work is based on Three woody plant species: Salvadora persica, L. Tamarix aphylla (L.) Karst. and Zizyphus mauritiana Lam. mentioned in the 16th Ayat of Sura Saba in Holy Quran and Ahadith. These plants were collected from Dera Ismail Khan District, NWFP, Pakistan, during 2007. This is a part of check list of medicinal flora and their uses enlisted in Holy Quran, Ahadith and Islamic literature. The main aim of this study is to document the knowledge of ethnobotanical importance of these plants in the light of Islam. In view of the importance of this study related comprehensive and detailed data was collected. Complete macro and microscopic detailed morphological features of these species were discussed. Results were systematically arranged by alphabetic order of botanical names, family followed by Quranic name, Arabic name, English name, Local/Vernicular name, habit and habitat, distribution, parts used, medicinal uses and references cited from Holy Quran, Ahadith. It is concluded that herbal medicines are being widely used in the world because of better cultural acceptability, least injurious with none or much reduced side effects.
