DEPARTMENT OF ZOOLOGY PROFILE
-->

Established in June 1948
As on today



Brief History of Department Of Zoology
Gokhale Education Society was established in 1918 by late Prin. T. A. Kulkarni, HPT Arts College was established in 1924. The Science stream, RYK Science College was added in 1948. Science stream was started in 1948 when Zoology was one of the subjects at first year. The college was renamed HPT Arts and RYK Science College in 1974.
Late Dr. S. M. Gadgil B. Sc., M. B. B. S. was appointed as Head, Department of Biology from June 1948 & was continued on the same post till June 1964. Dr. A. R. Phatak was appointed as Head of Department of Zoology in June 1966 when teaching of S. Y. B. Sc. started & continued as Head of this Department till December 1998. T. Y. B. Sc. started in his regime in 1971. With the help of management Department received permanent affiliation from Maharashtra State government and also from University of Pune. After Retirement of Dr. Phatak, Dr. S.R. Gudsoorkar took charge of HOD and Vice Principal, Department has started M. Sc. Zoology in 2005 with Genetics as a special subject. In April 2007 Dr. T. B. Nikam Lead the Department as HOD and Vice principal. At present Dr. C. S.  is working as HOD.

Objectives of the Department

To motivate students to conduct seminars/workshops on the topics included in the curriculum. It will help in achieving academic excellence.

To expose students to the field of Life sciences through field projects on Vermiculture, Beekeeping, bio-pesticide drosophila genetics, Biological control and ecological science. It will help to create awareness on environment friendly technologies.

To promote students to create self-study material, didactic material, which will be useful to them to use it during seminar presentation. Seminar activities will help in boosting confidence and developing communication skill

To invite Human Resource Management Institutes for campus interview of students. This will help them to find job opportunities immediately after graduation.

To motivate students for field research and laboratory research, research projects are assigned on the topic, which are very relevant to the subject. This will inculcate research aptitude in the students.

To create environment conservation awareness through field visits, nature camps, visits to wildlife sanctuaries and research laboratories. This will help in creating respect for nature and exposure to advance research work.

We strictly observe the teaching schedule; timely conduct of examinations, preparing teaching plans and its execution, Departmental meetings of teaching and non-teaching staff.

We always encourage and appreciate innovative teaching methods for effective subject communication. It helps in refinement of the academic programs for development of holistic approach in students.

UGC sponnsered Minor Reasearch Project


Dr. Jawale Chetan S. is sanctioned Minor research project entitle "Mosquito larvicidal efficacy of some saponin containing plants". Letter no. 47-365/12 (WRO)  25thFeb 2013

Exucative summry:
 
TITLE OF THE PROJECT:- … Mosquito larvicidal efficacy of some saponin containing plants

OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT :-… Collection of plants, extraction of plants, Biological testing of these extracts and plant products on mosquito larvae, for this rearing and maintain culture of Aedes aegypti mosquito species in laboratory, Separation of active ingredients from potent plants, bioassay guided fractionation of most potent extract with different solvent system. Evaluation of mode of toxicity to mosquito larvae.
WHETHER OBJECTIVES WERE ACHIEVED:- Yes, four plant species reported to contain saponin Viz Sapindus mukorossi, Cestrum nocturnm, Cestrum diurnum, Asclepias curassavica, are selected for evaluation of mosquito larvicidal activity. Aedes aegypti mosquito are cultured and reared in the laboratory for toxicity testing. Methanol extract by percolation was found effective in extraction of larvicide from these plants. among them Sapindus mukorossi, Cestrum nocturnum is found most potent and effective. hence further research was focused on them only. Further Sapindus mukorossi, Cestrum nocturnum methanol extract is subjected to separation by chromatographic techniques like TLC, PTLC, and Column chromatography. for separation and bioassay guided fractionation different solvent systems are used from polar to nonpolar solvents. Hexane ethyl acetate system was found efficient in extracting larvicide, Fraction CN3 and SM5 were found post effective with LC50 7.2 µg/ml and 18.3 µg/ml respectively. In future these fraction can be characterised to know the chemical compound present in it, as well as to know the complex mode of activity on mosquito larvae.
ACHIEVEMENTS FROM THE PROJECT :-
 The crude extracts of fruits of Sapindus mukorossi, leaves of Cestrum nocturnm, Cestrum diurnum, and Asclepias curassavica were tested under laboratory conditions against Aedes aegypti, a vector of dengue and chikungunya, for their larvicidal properties. Bioassay experiments carried out with crude alcoholic extracts of Sapindus mukorossi, Cestrum nocturnm, Cestrum diurnum, Asclepias curassavica, LC50 values of 10.05, 9.02, 8.96 and 11.74 ppm respectively. All crude extracts showed positive result for the presence of saponin. This preliminary study suggests that these plants are sources of potential mosquito larvicide, and can be effectively used to produce less expensive and safe compounds to control mosquito vectors in India.
Further, Methanol extract of Cestrum nocturnum and Sapindus mukorossi leaves. showing highest activity of larvicide were separated and fractionated using  chromatographic techniques and bioassay guided fractionation. Bioactive fractions were subjected for LC50 evaluation on 3rd instars larvae of Aedes aegypti according to WHO protocol. Using hexane ethyl acetate solvent system, CN-3 and SM-5 fractions are separated containing larvicide with LC50 7.2 µg/ml and 18.3 µg/ml respectively for 24h. These fractions will be further characterized to identify the compound and biologically evaluated for mode of action on targeted organism. This study further lead to produce less expensive and safe compound to control mosquitoes in India.

SUMMARY OF THE FINDINGS :-
The study on the larvicidal activity of the methanolic leaf extract of Sapindus mukorosii, Cestrum nocturnum, Cestrum diurnm, Asclepias curassavica against the dengue-vector, Aedes aegypti mosquito showed that the leaf methanolic extracts of S. mukorossi contains no alkaloids, very few flavonoids and tannins while the methanolic extracts of C. nocturnum and C. diurnum are rich in alkaloids, saponins, tannins, flavonoids and steroids. These compounds are known to possess insecticidal and larvicidal activities of insects and other animals. These four plant samples showed larvicidal activity to Aedes aegypti mosquito larvae which is manifested by a high percentage of mortality in comparison to those in the control group. Furthermore, C. diurnum extract shows the most effective larvicide among the various plant extracts with the percentage mortality of 100% in 24 and 48 hours of exposure respectively.
The plants high larvicidal activity is supported by the presence of phytochemicals such as alkaloids, saponins, flavonoids, steroids and tannins which showed combination effects in terms of larvicidal action to mosquito larvae. Moreover, A. curucovas extract displayed least effective in larvicidal activity compared to the other extract which is manifested by the highest LC50 and LC90 values after 48 hours of exposure. Its phytochemical test also suggested the presence of fewer amounts of phytochemicals. On the other hand, C. diurnum extract is the most effective in larvicidal activity compared to the other extract which is manifested by the lowest LC50 and LC90 values after 48 hours of exposure. Both cestrum species also exhibited presence of more amount of phytochemicals specially alkaloids and saponin.
All these four plants show effective larvicidal activity. It differs according to the plant species. The presence of variability in bioactive chemicals like alkaloids, saponin, tannins, flavonoids and steroids can be attributed to the susceptibility of the plant extracts as killing agent against mosquito larvae. These four saponin containing plants were evaluated for the presence of  larvicidal principle. Cestrum nocturnum and Sapindus mukorosi showed promising larvicidal activity. When separated using chromatographic techniques, it showed 2 potent fractions containing larvicidal principle among 12 fractions from both the plants. Further characterization of these fraction will lead to the discovery of complex larvicidal compound from Cestrum nocturnum and Sapindus mukorossi.
CONTRIBUTION TO THE SOCIETY :- This larvicide extraction for these particular plant will add useful knowledge in the phytochemistry. On use of these isolated larvicide for toxicity testing on mosquito larvae will contribute in the understating of aquatic insect larval physiology and insect toxicology. These larvicidal investigation will contribute alternative way of insecticide use over the hazardous chemical pesticides. This research is also contributing in the development of mosquito control program, specially for the Dengue vector mosquito at larval level which stand for major epidemic. In India these plants are very commonly available, as these plant product are found effective, can be used locally at economical rate in ponds and ditches to kill mosquito larvae without posing ecological hazards. Thus this finding is economical, indigenous and can contribute in the economy and health of India.
