The street children phenomenon is an increasing problem in most cities of the world including Isfahan, which is a fast growing
town. The number of street children with the growth of the town is increased. It is therefore important to have baseline data
on their health problems. Hair element analysis remains an important tool in the nutritional and environmental assessment
of them. A measurement of the elemental concentration in recently-grown hair provides an integrated view of the element status
in the follicular cells and their blood supply, unaffected by short term fluctuations in the nutrient intake of the subject.
This study aimed to assess heavy metals concentrations in the hair of street children in Isfahan using neutron activation
analysis method. The concentration of heavy metals (Cu, Cr, Fe, Hg, Mn, and Zn) of 17 Iranian street children (Isfahan) was
examined. Data analysis found that different profiles of the concentrations of Cr, Hg, Mn, and Zn were seen in each sample.
These results were discussed with reference to show of environmental effects.

Flora Iranica is a very important reference treatment for the vascular flora of Iran. Two genera, Goldbachia DC. and Tetracme Bunge (Cruciferae), are mentioned in Flora Iranica with only one species each for Iran. Additional species of these genera recorded from Iran since the publication of Flora Iranica are listed and discussed here.For Goldbachia, up to now, the only species recorded for Iran in Flora Iranica is Goldbachia laevigata (M. Bieb.) DC.; but here two other Goldbachia species are recorded for the country for the first time: G. pendula Botsch. and G. verrucosa Komarov. For Tetracme the only species recoded for Iran in Flora Iranica is Tetracme recurvata Bunge. T. quadricornis (Steph.) Bunge was recorded later with only one specimen from Semnan province; and T. contorta Boiss. was recorded from Isfahan province. Here more specimens of T. contorta are recorded for the first time from Khorassan province. Identification keys are given for both genera in Iran.
Scalp hair samples from 100 individual residents in Isfahan, Iran were analyzed for Al, Br, Ca, Cu, Hg, I, K, Mg, Mn, Na, S, V, and Zn by instrumental neutron activation analysis. The results of this investigation show that the ranges of the concentration of trace elements in hair are somewhat wide, for example Mg has the range of 20 to 209 ppm for 100 subjects. The results are compared with the data reported in the literatures. A substantive correspondence between the present data and literature values from different countries, have been observed but they did not show any regular dependence. The level of iodine is significantly different from other countries and is strongly linked to local environmental factors. The correlation coefficient for Al–V, Mn–Al, Ca–Mg, and V–Mg pairs was 0.823, 0.821, 0.830 and 0.746, respectively.

The aim of the work was to evaluate the callus induction response and in vitro drought tolerance of eight genotypes of safflower. The experiment was laid out as a completely randomized design in a factorial arrangement with three replications. To evaluate the drought tolerance of the genotypes, growing calli were exposed to drought stress after two subcultures by adding different concentrations of mannitol to the culture medium for one month. Under stress conditions, the genotypes were compared in terms of proline content, cell viability, relative growth rate, ion content (Na+ and K+), relative water content and index of tolerance. Drought affected all the measured biochemical and physiological factors and there were significant differences between the tested genotypes. The proline content increased in drought-stressed calli, and mannitol, as a stress agent, stimulated the synthesis of proline in all the genotypes, especially at the highest concentration (505 mM), whereas the ion contents, cell viability, RWC, RGR and index of tolerance exhibited a significant decrease. This suggested that these biochemical and physiological traits could be used to predict the drought tolerance of safflower genotypes. The results indicated that the cultivars Isfahan and LRV-51-51 were more drought-tolerant under in vitro conditions than the other genotypes.
