Cow may be the biggest mammal in 200 years if humans keep up extinctions, reveals a study 20.4.2018 DNA: Top News
The domestic cow may be the largest land mammal on Earth in 200 years, if the loss of large-bodied and currently threatened animals continues in the future, according to a study. Researchers led by The University of New Mexico in the US demonstrated that mammal biodiversity loss, a major conservation concern today, is part of a long-term trend lasting at least 125,000 years. As archaic humans, Neanderthals and other hominin species migrated out of Africa, what followed was a wave of size-biased extinction in mammals on all continents that intensified over time, they said. The study, published in the journal Science, is the first to quantitatively show that human effects on mammal body size predates their migration out of Africa and that size selective extinction is a hallmark of human activities and not the norm in mammal evolution.

At least 99 pesticides should have been banned in India: Supreme Court 19.4.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
In an ongoing PIL that seeks Supreme Court’s directions for concrete action on harmful pesticides and their phasing out in India, in its last hearing a month ago, the Court directed the petitioners to make a representation to the “J S Sandhu Committee” within 15 days. The Court further ordered that ‘since the matter is of urgent nature, let the recommendations be finalised by the Committee expeditiously, preferably within 3 months, and if decision is taken to ban a particular pesticide, let it be implemented fifteen days thereafter’. The existence and functioning of such a Committee was highlighted by the Government of India counsel during the Hearing on 19th March 2018, in Writ Petition (c) 1079 of 2017. However, to the petitioners’ surprise, when they sent their submission to ICAR on 27th March 2018, they found that no such J S Sandhu Committee was functioning in the Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers’ Welfare. Dr J S Sandhu, who was the ICAR Deputy Director General (Crop Science) and Chair of the ...

Ind-Ra: Pharmaceutical Formulators Diverge on Strategy for Non-Prescription Businesses 19.4.2018 General News
Strong fundamentals will aid Indian formulators' increased focus with an expected CAGR of 8.8% over 2017-2022 for the domestic over the counter (OTC) market. Investments by Indian formulators are likely to be in consumer healthcare and wellness products, apart from the traditional OTC product categories through new launches, brand extensions and switches from prescription products. This strategy is in sharp contrast to some global majors looking for strategic alternatives to exit their mature consumer health business owing to low single-digit growth and shift in focus back to the core prescription business. The agency believes the non-prescription business to contribute a solid 15%-20% to the domestic revenues of Indian formulators over the next five years.
