  Dry leaf of Hyptis suaveolens Poit was extracted with water and methanol and the effect on seed germination and seedling growth were determined in Pennisetum setosum and Mimosa invisa. The water extract significantly reduced P. setosum seed germination and strongly inhibited shoot and root lengths of both P. setosum and M. invisa. The inhibition percentages increased with the increasing of dry leaf ratios of the extracts. Shoot growth of P. setosum and M. invisa seedling was less sensitive to the extract than root growth was. The lower leaf ratios extracts (1:80 and 1:40) did not reduce shoot length of both weeds, in contrast, the 1:80 ratio extract promoted P. setosum shoot length 16.97% of untreated control. In this study, P. setosum was more susceptible to H. sauveolens leaf water extract than M. invisa. The methanol extraxts of H. suaveolens leaf significantly inhibited seed germination and seedling growth of both P. setosum and M. invisa and the inhibitory effects were higher than those of the water extracts. This might indicate solubility of the allelochemicals in H. suaveolens leaf better in methanol than in water. It is interesting to study further on allelopathy of this plant for the practical use in agricultural pest management.

  Background: Antidesma bunius (L.) Spreng has been reported to possess various beneficial medicinal properties. Scientific information about this plant is limited. This study was therefore, designed to determine hypoglycaemic and hypolipidemic effects of ethanol seed extract from A. bunius (ABSE). Antioxidant activity and also acute toxicity were conducted. Methodology: The hypoglycaemic and hypolipidemic effects were studied by oral giving ABSE at a dose of 250 mg kg–1 to streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats daily for 6 weeks. Antioxidant activity was studied using DPPH assay. The ABSE at the doses of 500, 1000, 1500 and 2000 mg kg–1 were employed in the acute toxicity study. Results: The results revealed that ABSE significantly (p<0.05) reduced the blood glucose level and recovered the pathology of hematological values, but significantly (p<0.05) increased the body weight and slightly increased serum insulin of the diabetic rats. However, ABSE recovered pathology of hematological values, but affected renal and hepatic functions in the treated rats by producing an alteration of creatinine, albumin, total protein, BUN and ALP. Interestingly, ABSE increased WBC and HDL, but reduced CHOL, LDL and TG both in normal and diabetic ABSE treated rats. The ABSE possessed relatively low antioxidant activity with IC50 of 2174±14.24 mg mL–1 compared to vitamin C (1.48±0.07 μg mL–1). Fortunately, ABSE did not produce any symptoms of acute toxicity and mortality in the rats. Conclusion: The ethanol seed extract from A. bunius possesses hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects. The ABSE also recovered the pathology of the hematology but may cause renal dysfunction in the diabetic rats. The hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects are likely due to its antioxidant and insulin secretion activities.

  This research aimed to develop and investigate the effectiveness of three hands-on practical on weed control using plant extracts for undergraduates, compare gains of students science process skills between before and after learning with the practical and investigate students preferences towards learning with the practical. The subjects, sampled by using the purposive method were 30 undergraduates from the Department of Biology, Srinakharinwirot University. The research tools consisted of three hands on practicals of the use plant extracts to control the weeds for undergraduates, a 40 multiple choice questions of science process skills with 4 options and a thirty items of 5-rating Likert preferences towards learning with the practicals. The data were analyzed by the descriptive statistics and t-test for independent samples. The findings indicated students science process skills after learning with the practical had significantly higher than those before learning with the practical (p>0.05). Students preferences towards learning with the hands on practical were at the high level of 4.21±0.34. Therefore, this hands on practicals can assist students to understand the plant sciences, particularly the plant extract use for weed control.

  Encouraging factors of managing herbal education in the area of lower Mekong river Basin are the context of the region where the natural environment, economic and social culture has a high potential in regards to the abundance and diversity of many indigenous herbs have many knowledgeable people in herbal knowledge and an abundance of fertile natural sources such as local indigenous herbs, mountains, forests and rivers. The Thai government has also been promoting health care through means of alternative medicine by bringing into law, the royal ACT of protection and promoting indigenous knowledge of Thai traditional medicine. The results of managing herbal education consists of the application of herbal health care, reducing the use of modern medicine to be <5% annum-1, reducing expenditure, increasing personnel income, increase opportunities in health care, development of a quality environment, create awareness in conservation of natural resource, good cultural values, good conservation and rehabilitation knowledge and the creation of new occupations in regards to herbal health and beauty products and services. There are many projects to raise the public’s awareness in conservation and protection, but the fact is that local indigenous herbs are still disappearing. Further development plans are needed to achieve successful conservation, rehabilitation and sustained development of herbal education. Proposed development plans include personnel development to create quality staff, development of sources of herbs in communities, development of herbal education in communities and the development of public relations and distribution of knowledge.
