  • 1. DIVERSITY IN LIVING ORGANISM Contents Ø It is essential to understand the interrelationships among different groups of organisms. Introduction Ø It forms a bone for the development of other biological sciences. Historical Account Ø It projects a picture of all life forms at a glance. 3. HISTORICAL ACCOUNT :: Virus Aristotale classified animals on basis of habitat (land water and air). He further classified the animals on basis of presence of RBC into Anaima and Ehaima. Enaima was classified into ovipara (egg layers) and vivipara (Dirth to young). Five Kingdom Classification q Monera q Protista q Plantae 3.1 Two Kingdom Classification : Father of taxonomy - Carolus Linnaeus. He preposed following kingdoms. q Fungi q Animalia (A) Plantae Ø Which included Bacteria, Fungi, Algae, Mosses, Liverworts, Ferns, Conifers and Flowering plants. 1. CLASSIFICATION :: (B) Animalia - Definition : Ø Included Protozoan, Sponges, Jelly fishes, Worms, Crabs, Insects, Millipedes, Centipedes, Spiders, Snails, Star fishes, Snakes, Frogs, Birds and Mammals. The method of arranging organisms into groups on sets on the basis of similarities and differences is called classification. 2. TAXONOMY OR SYSTEMATICS :: 3.2 Three Kingdom Classification : Ø This was suggested by german biologist, E. Haeckel in 1866. Definition : The taxonomy or systematics is the study of diversity and kind of organisms and the evolutionary relationship among them. Ø As some microscopic single celled forms were unlike plants or animals altogether and could not be placed in earlier system, thus three kingdom system was proposed. It includes (1) plantae, (2) Animalia, (3) Protista ... contained all single celled organisms like protozoans and unicellular algae. Importance of Classification : Ø It makes the study of wide variety of organisms easy. Biology - Diversity in Living Organism 37
  • 2. q Sibling species : Related species which are 3.3 Four Kingdom Classification : reproductively isolated bat morphologically similar. Ø This was developed by Copeland in 1966. Ø As prokaryotes (Organisms without true nucleus) were different from eukaryotes (organism with true nucleus), a new group, monera was formed. q Eademic species : A species restricted to a given area. (B) Binomial Nomenclature : 3.4 Five Kingdom Classification : Ø Proposed by Carolus Linnaeus. Ø This most favoured scheme was proposed by R.H. Whittaker in 1969. Fungi could not find a suitable place in earlier system of classifications and thus whittaker’s five kingdom theory found favour amongst most biologists. Ø According to this system of nomenclature, each animal or plant is given two names : the first one is the generic name and the second one is the name of the species. Ø Scientific names are always in Latin. Ø This classification includes : (a) Plantae (c) Fungi Ø The first letter of the generic name is always capitalized and that of the specific name is written in small letter. For example, the scientific name of frog is Rana tigrina, in which Rana is the generic name and tigrina is the name of the species. (b) Animalia (d) Protista (e) Monera. 3.5 Six Kingdom Classification : Ø It was proposed by Woese, Kandler and Wealis (1990). They divided monera into Archae bacteria and Eubacteria. 4. VIRUES :: Ø The study of viruses is known as virology. (A) Taxonomic Categories : Ø Viruses belong to intermediate zone between living and non-living worlds. Kingdom Subkingdom Ø Their size varies from 10-250 nm. Phylum (division in plants) Ø Viruses have an extermely basic structure, made up of a central core of either a DNA or RNA strand. Class Order Family Ø This is covered by a protein coat called capsid. ü ï ï ý (1) ï ï (2) þ Genus Species q Species Concept : Ø Species is the basic unit of taxonomy. ü (3) ï ï ý ï ï þ Ø Mayr defined species as groups of interbreeding natural populations that are reproductively isolated from each other group. (4) q Sympatric : Species inhabiting the same geographical area are sympatric. (5) q Allopatric : Spcies inhibiting different geographical areas are allopatric. (1) Head (DNA covered With protein coat) (2) Collar, (3) Neck, (4) Tail, (5) End plate FIG - STRUCTURE OFA BACTERIOPHAGE 38 Biology - Diversity in Living Organism
  • 3. (C) Kingdom Fungi : Ø The viruses do not have any cytoplasm or other metabolic machinery. They depend entirely on the metabolic enzymes of the host cell. Hence they are termed obligate parasites. Ø Fungi are multicelled, non photosynthetic organism. Ø Some fungi are microscopic while others can be seen with the naked eyes. Ø Viruses infect almost every kind of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Ø Some fungi are unicellular while others are multicellular consisting of numerous filaments known as hyphae. Ø Inside the living cells, the viruses behave as living structures as they multiply and grow. Ø Once outside the organisms, viruses behave as non-living entities. Ø The hyphae branch profusely and from a network called mycelium. Ø Viruses infect a variety of organisms. Viruses infecting blue green algae are called Cyanophages . Ø Since fungi Lack chlorophyll they can’t synthesise their own food and therefore they either lead a parasitic or sporophytic life. Ø Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria and mycophages infect the fungi. Ø The Parasitic fungi may infect the host superficially or they may penetrate the host tissues (Ectoparasite and endoparasite). Ø Some example are in man, Rhinovirus is the common cold virus. The dreaded AIDS disease is also caused by HIV (Human Immuno Deficiency Virus). Ø The fungi develop haustoria which help in absorption of nutrients from the host. Ex. mucor (D) Kingdom Animalia : 5. FIVE KINGDOM CLASSIFICATION :: Ø It includes multicellular animals. (A) Kingdom Monera : Ø Example : Salpa, doliolum, lamprey, shark, lizard, snake, frog, parrot, whale, bat, man, cow kangaroo. Ø It consists of unicellular prokaryotic organisms. Ø Ex. - blue green algae and bacteria. (B) Kingdom Protista : 6. PLANT K INGDOM PLANTAE) :: Ø Kingdom protista include unicellular eukaryotic organisms. Protists are mostly aquatic eukaryotic microorganisms. (KINGDOM Plant Kingdom Sub kingdom Ø They possess cilia, flagella or pseudopodia for Locomotion. Ø Protists have immense reproductive potential. The reproduce asexually or sexually. Cryptogamae (Naked Embryo called spores) Ø Ex - Diatoms (Navicula), Dinoffagellates (Gonyaulax), Slime moulds (fuligo) and Protozoans (Amoeba, Paramecium etc.) Phanerogamae (Seed with embryo and food) 6.1 Sub Kingdom - Cryptogamae : Ø It includes multicelled green plants and algae. Ø It includes - Flowerless, Seedless plants. Ø The members of this kingdom are nonmotile, terrestrial, multicellular that contain chlorophyll and produce their own organic compounds. Ø Cryptogamae further divided into three division Cryptogamae Ø All plant cells have a cellulosic cell wall. Ex. Spirogyra, Selaginella, Pinus, dicot or monocot plant, liverworts, mosses. Biology - Diversity in Living Organism Thallophyta 39 Bryophyta Pteridophyta
  • 4. (A) Division Thallophyta : ALGAE Ø Most primitive and simple plants. The plant body is not differentiated into stem, root and leaves, but it is in the form of an undivided thallus. 1 Cell wall is made up of cellulose. Lichens q Algae - Grows fast in dark or dim light. 5 All the members are autotrophic. Fungi Chlorophyll is absent 4 Grows fast in bright light. Thallophytes Food material is stored in the form of glycogen or oil. 3 Members contain chlorophyll. Ø Sex organs are simple, single-celled and there is no embryo formation after fertilization. Cell wall is made up of fungal cellulose and chitin 2 Food material is stored usually in the form of starch. Ø Mechanical and conducting tissues are absent (i.e., there is no vascular system) Algae FUNGI Fungi are heterotrophic, i.e. either saprophytic or parasitic Ø Most algae are water-growing or aquatic, both marine and fresh water, some are terrestrial, i.e. live on land near moist places. q Lichens - Ø They are autotrophic, i.e., manufacture their own food. Reserve food is generally starch. Ø Lichens grow on rocks, tree-trunks, and even on the ground. They are very hardy. Ø The plant body may be unicellular (Chlamydomonas), colonial (Volvox), filamentous (Ulothrix, Spirogyra). Ø In lichens, algae and fungi live in symbiosis, (mutualism), i.e., they coexist for mutual benefit. Ø The algae component of the lichen is known as phycobiont and the fungal component as mycobiont. Ø The fungus absorbs water and mineral matter and supplies it to the algae. The algae, in true, prepares food and supplies it to the fungus. Chlamydomonas Ø Lichen are most sensitive to SO2 Foliose lichen pollution. q Fungi - Ø Crustose lichens (e.g. Rhizocarbon, Graphics); foliose lichens (e.g. Parmelia, Collema) and fruticose lichens (e.g. Aletoria, Usnea) Ø Simple non-green plants which are not photosynthetic. They are heterotrophic. Ø They may be unicellular (yeast) or filamentous (most fungi). The body of a multicellular and filamentous fungus is called a mycelium. (B) Division Bryophyta : Ø Bryophytes are small multicellular green land plants. Ø Fungi have a cell wall containing a mixture of chitin and cellulose.

  • 17. IMMUNITY AND HUMAN DISEASES Edward Jenner is known as father of Contents immunology. Antigen - Foreign substance which initiates Introduction imume respouse. Types of Immunity Types of Immunity : Diseases Immunity is of two basic types, innate and acquired. (A) Innate Immunity : Protozoan Viral Innate immunity is also known as inborn immunity. It is present from birth. Bacterial Innate immunity is the first line of defence in most organisms, whether plants or animals. Deficiency The immunity remains throughout life. Contact with pathogen or its antigen is not essential. Innate immunity is inheritable. 1. IMMUNITY :: It protects the individual from contraction of diseases of other organisms. Definition : Immunity (L. Immunis = free), is a natural or acquired resistance of an individual to development of pathological condition even after having received infective dose of virulent pathogen, its or an allergen. “Immunity is the resistance of body to effect of certain pathogenic microorganism.’’ (B) Acquired Immunity : Acquired immunity develops only on exposure to the concerned microorganism. It develops during life time. The acquired immunity can be short lived or life long. Immune System : Is a complex system of the Contact with pathogen or its antigen is essential. body including cellular and molecular components which has the primary function of distinguishing self from nonself and defence against infections agents, foreign substances and cancer. Acquired immunity cannot be passed to the next generation. 2. COMPONENT OF IMMUNCE SYSTEM Immunology : (L. Immunis free, logos-study) is Immune system has two components, humoral and cell mediated. the branch of biology which deals with the study of immune system and immune responses. Study of structure and function of immue system is called immunology. (A) Humoral Immune System : The antibodies are formed by B-Lymphocytes. These are specific for antigens. Biology - Immunity and Human Diseases 53
  • 18. Some of the diseases caused by intrinsic sources are - (B) Cell Mediated Immune System : This system defends the body against pathogens including fungi and protists which enter the body. This system also reacts against tissue transplants and against body’s own cells that have become cancerous. Cardiac failure Kidney failure Osteoporosis (Pore in bones) Myopia or short sightedness It is component of Immune system which consist of T-Lymphocytes. Sickle cell anaemia etc. The system provides cellular Immunity. It functions against pathogen which pass into host cells, the Immune system also operates against cancer cells and transplants. It also activates B-Lymophocytes. (B) Extrinsic or Internal Factor : The factors causing diseases and existing outside the human body are called extrinsic or external factors. The important extrinsic factors which upset human health are the following - 3. DISEASE :: Unbalanced diet Disease is defined as the malfunctioning of the organs of the human body. Diseases causing micro-organism such as viruses, bacteria, fungi etc. Sickness, illness, ailment as disease is a disorder that affects an organism. Environmental pollutants. Tobacco, alcohol and narcotic drugs. The term disease means DIS-EASE or without ease or discomfort. Extrinsic factors affect the health of our body by interfering with normal fuctioning of the body system. 3.1 Sources of Disease : Generally, factors affecting health may be divided into following groups - Some of diseases caused by extrinsic factors are– Kwashiorkor (a) Intrinsic factors and Marasmus (b) Extrinsic factors Night blindness (A) Intrinsic or Internal Factors : Beri Beri etc. The disease causing factors which exist with in the human body are called intrinsic factors. Types of Diseases : The important intrinsic factors which affect human health are the following - Diseases Malfunctioning or improper functioning of various body parts. Congenital diseases Acquired diseases Genetic disorders Hormonal imbalances Malfunctioning of immune system Communicable or infectious diseases The diseases caused by intrinsic sources or factors are called organic or metabolic diseases. 54 Non-communicable or non infectious diseases Biology - Immunity and Human Diseases
  • 19. 4.1 Diseases Caused by Protozoans : Human diseases are broadly grouped into two categories - (A) Malaria : (A) Congenital Diseases : General Introduction - These diseases are those which are present since birth. Malaria is caused by a protozoan parasite Plasmodium. This disease spreads through the bite of an insect vector-the female Anopheles mosquito which feeds on human blood. (Male Anopheles mosquito feeds upon nectar. Thus does not spread malaria). (B) Acquired Diseases : These diseases are those which develop after birth. (B) Acquired Diseases : Acquired diseases can be broadly classified into two types Communicable Symptoms Main symptom of malaria include headache, nausea, muscular pain and fever at regular intervals. Non-communicable Communicable or-Infectious Diseases These diseases are caused by some biological agents or pathogens. Prevention - We can protect us from the bite Pathogens such as Virus, Bacteria, Protozoans and Fungi. Wire-gauze should be used on doors and windows of our houses to prevent entry of mosquitoes. of mosquitoes by following methods : Those infectious diseases are communicated from diseases person to healthy person they are known as communicable diseases. Insect-repellents (e.g., Odomas) should be used to prevent mosquito-bite. Mosquito larvae should be killed by sprinkling kerosene oil on large-sized water bodies. Some larvivorous fishes such as Gambusia, Minnows or trouts or birds (e.g., ducks) can be introduced in water bodies. Examples - Malaria, Influenza, Jaundice, AIDS etc. Non-Communicable Infectious Diseases : Diseases or Adult mosquitoes can be killed by spraying insecticides (e.g., BHC, Malathion) on the walls of human dwellings. These are not spread from infected person to healthy person. Non communicable diseases may be caused from deficiency diseases, degenerative diseases, cancer and metabolic disorders. Treatment A drug named Quinine, which is extracted from the bark of Cinchona tree, is used to treat a person suffering from malaria. Several non communicable diseases caused due to the deficiency of nutrients are called nutritional deficiency diseases or nutritional disorders. (B) Trypanosomiasis (Sleeping sickness) - Examples - Marasmus and Kwashiorkor (deficiency of proteins) Rickets, Goiter, Beri-Beri etc. Cause - Trypanosomiasis is caused by Trypanosoma. Life Cycle of Trypanosoma - Life cycle of 4. DIFFERENT TYPES OF DISEASES CAUSED DUE TO INFECTION BY MICRO ORGANISMS :: Biology - Immunity and Human Diseases Trypanosoma is digenetic. 55
  • 20. Primary host is Man (Dogs and pigs are also found with Trypanosoma) Symptoms of trypanosomiasis varies according Secondary host is Glossina (Tse - Tse fly) to presence of Trypanosoma in blood, lymph and cerebrospinal fluid. Glossina is a blood sucking insect. Trypanosoma in blood causes very high fever. Trypanosoma in lymph results in swelling of neck and armpit. (C) Kala-azar : Kala azar is caused by Leishmania donovani. Trypanosoma in cerebrospinal fluid causes, weakness mental dullness, severe headache, muscle spasm, fremor of hands, pain stiffness in neck, excessive drowsiness etc. L.donovani is a parasite in human blood mainly found in blood capillaries of visceral organs. Note : The parasite mainly attacks the endothelial cells of blood vessel and lymphatics Following are the medicines used in the treatment of trypanosomiasis. Epidemiology - Kala azar spread from infected person to healthy person through vector sandfly (i) Suramine Following are the symptoms of Kala azar. (ii) Lomadine (iii) Bayer 205 (Phlebotomus). (iv) Pentamidine Note : Yet no vaccine is available for (i) Fever trypanosomiasis. (ii) Enlargement of the spleen and liver 4.2 Diseases Caused by Viruses : (iii) Rheumatic pain General Introduction - Note : Leishmania tropica causes oriental sore. Influenza is commonly called flu. Types of Fever : Mainly of two types which are as follows : It is an international disease and is caused by influenza virus (Myxovirus influenzae). (I) Gambian fever Symptoms - (II) Rhodesian fever The common symptoms of influenza disease are sudden onset of chills, discharge from the nose, sneezing, fever, muscular pains and general weakness. Fever last three days in adults. Gambian Fever Gambian fever is also called west African sleeping sickness. Prevention - Gambian fever is caused by- Trypanosoma gambiense We should try to keep away from flue patients. Gambian fever spread by both sexes of Tse-Tse fly (Glossina palpalis) Control - Gambian fever mainly occurs in west and central Africa Ammantadine and Rimatidine are recommenede for the treatment of influenza. (A) Jaundice/Hepatitis : Rhodesian Fever Rhodesian fever is also called East Africans sleeping sickness. General Introduction Jaundice or hepatitis is the disease of liver. Rhodesian fever is caused by T. rhodesiense. Jaundice is caused by viral infection. R.fever spread by Glossina moisitans The types of hepatitis are : Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Hepatitis D, Hepatitis E or Hepatitis G. Epidemiology - From infected man to healthy man by Tse-Tse fly. 56 Biology - Immunity and Human Diseases
  • 21. Hepatitis is spread mostly by food and water contaminated with hepatitis virus. Compulsory immunization of dogs and cats should be done. Pet dogs should be vaccinated with anti rabies vaccine. Symptoms - A rabid animal shows excessive salivation and tries to seek isolation after bite and so such an animal should be killed. High temperature, headache, fatigue, general weakness, and joint pains. Loss of appetite (called anorexia) with a feeling of nausea and vomiting. Rabies can be treated by “Pasteur’s treatment” (discovered by Louis Pasteur) in which a course of 14 vaccines was given. Appearance of irritating rashes on body. Dark yellow urine. Currently five anti-rabies vaccines are prescribed at an interval of 0-3-7-14-30 days of dog bite. Light coloured stool after 3 to 10 days of infection. (C) AIDS (Acquired Immuno deficiency syndrome) : Prevention Use chlorinated, boiled and ozonized water. General Introduction - Proper cleaning of hands after handling bed and vessels of the patient. AIDS stands for “Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome” (It is a fatal disease). The disease of AIDS is caused by retrovirus (a RNA virus) known as Human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Control Application of interferon injection on the advice of the doctor will control the diseases. AIDS virus attacks white blood cells, (WBCs) or lymphocytes (T4 helper cells) of human beings and weakens the human body’s immunity or self-defence mechanism. For an early cure, it is essential that patient of jaundice should take adequate rest. (B) Rabies/Hydrophobia : General Introduction - Transmission - The bite of a rabid dog (mad dog) and some other rabid mammals such as monkeys, cats or rabbits may cause rabies, which is fatal. The AIDS disease usually spreads through unprotected sexual contact with an infected person carrying AIDS virus. Thus, AIDS is a sexually transmitted viral disease. Rabies is a viral disease caused by a rabies virus which is present in the saliva of the infected animals. internal viral protein Symptoms - protein of envelope Rabies is characterized by severe headache, high fever, painful contraction of muscles of throat and chest (due to which there is difficulty in swallowing). The patient feels restless, does excessive salivation, has a chocking feeling and finds difficulty in taking in even liquid food. reproductive enzymes (reverse transcriptase) Prevention Wash the wound with carbolic soap and clean water immediately after the bite. Apply antiseptic medicine. Biology - Immunity and Human Diseases RNA (Genetic material) Structure of HIV or AIDS virus 57

The AIDS disease also spreads through the transfusion of blood contaminated with AIDS virus. The AIDS disease also spreads through the use of infected needles for injections (i.e., sharing of infected injection needles which have not been sterilized). Control : Oral vaccines are available (developed by Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin, 1940) to Protect babies from polio attack. An AIDS infected mother can transmit the virus to her child during pregnancy or during birth (i.e., by mother’s blood). Public pulse polio Immunization programe is organized in India for eradicating polio. Symptoms - 4.3 Diseases Caused by Bacteria : Swollen lymph nodes. (i) Tuberculosis (T.B.) Decreased count of blood platelets causing haemorrhage and fever. (ii) Cholera (iii) Typhoid (iv) Diarrhoea (v) Anthrax Sweating at night and weight loss. (i) Tuberculosis : Severe damage to brain which may lead to loss of memory, ability to speak and even think. General Introduction - Prevention - Tuberculosis was first discovered by German scientist Robert Koch in 1882. The common razor at the barbers shop should not be used. T.B. is an infectious disease which is communicated from one person to another directly or indirectly. A blood donor should be first tested HIV negative. Tuberculosis is caused by bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Disposable needles and syringes should be used. Sexual contact with unknown people should be avoided. The bacterium releases a toxin called tuberculin. T.B. can affect all parts of body such as lungs, lymph glands, bones, intestine, etc. Control Till date there is no effective treatment for AIDS. Indinavir drug is used. Symptoms The patient of tuberculosis feels sick and weak. (D) Poliomyelitis (Polio) : There is a loss of appetite and weight. Poliomyelitis has been found throughout the world since ancient times and occurs only in humans. There are following two specific sites of tuberculosis infection. Prevention - The polio virus (with single stranded RNA) belong to picornavirus group and is one of the smallest known (10mµ is in diameter) virus. Immunization with BCG (Bacillus-Calamite-Guerin) vaccination is the best way to prevent from tuberculosis. Polio virus enters the body through food and water, multiplies in the cells of the intestinal wall and the infection spread to the lymphatic System and blood stream. Patient should be kept in properly ventilated room. Control : The tuberculosis can be cured by the following six essential drugs. On reaching the CNS, the virus destroys the dorsal horn cells of the spinal cord which control the activities of the muscles. 1. Rifampicin (RMP), 2. INH, 3. Streptomycin, 4. Pyrazinamide, 5.

Symptoms - (ii) Cholera : Headache and typhoid fever which rises maximum in the afternoon. The temperature increases each day in the first week. General Introduction Cholera is an acute infectious disease caused by a bacterium Vibrio cholera. High fever in the second week. Fever gradually decline during 3rd and 4th day. It is caused due to neglection in personal hygiene and sanitation. It is common during the days of floods. Prevention Proper sanitation and disposal of faecal matter prevents infection. Flies, contaminated water and contaminated food are the main transmitting agents of cholera. TAB-vaccination provides immunity for 3 years. Typhoral oral vaccine also prevents typhoid. Symptoms - (iv) Diarrhoea : Frequent vomiting with feeling of nausea. Painless watery diarrhoea. General Introduction - Diarrhoea, results in dehydration, weight loss and cramps in the muscles. Diarrhoea is an abnormally frequent discharge of semisolid or fluid faeces. Patient’s eyes becomes sunken. There may be blood and mucus in the stools. Prevention - Persistent vomiting and loose stools cause dehydration and shock. Persons should be immunized by standard cholera vaccine. Blood pressure may fall, pulse rate increases and temperature rise. Only boiled water and well-cooked food should be used in areas which are chloroprene. ORS (Oral Rehydration Solution) should be used immediately The causative agents of diarrhoea are mainly bacteria such as. E. coli, Clostridium botulinum, Salmonella etc. Careful personal hygiene should be maintained. Symptoms - Control - Patients become irritable due to frequent loose motions and vomiting. ORS should be fed to the patient immediately. Sunken eyes with a pinched nose. Effective antibiotics under the proper medical supervision should be used. Tongue appears to be dry. Sudden weight loss with weak pulse rate. (iii)Typhoid : Little or no urine; urine starts becoming dark yellow. General Introduction - Prevention - Typhoid is most common infectious or communicable disease of India. Boil water before drinking. This kills bacteria and other organisms responsible for causing diarrhoea. Typhoid is caused by a rod-shaped and motile bacterium, called Salmonella typhi. Protect eatables from dirt, flies and cockroaches, etc., by covering them. Infection takes place by the oral route through ingestion of food, milk or water contaminated by contact with faecal matter of the typhoid patient. Biology - Immunity and Human Diseases 59

During diarrhoea, infants should be breast-fed, if possible. Control : Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS) should be given continuously to prevent dehydration. Consult a qualified doctor at the earliest to start anti-microbial and anti-diarrhoeal drugs. Give complete bed rest to the patient. Use isbagol husk with water or curd. (v) Anthrax : General Introduction : Anthrax is a bacterial disease affecting several wild and domestic animals, e.g. cattle sheep, goat, etc. A disease which is caused due to lack of a nutrient such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals or vitamins in our diet is called a deficiency disease. It can also infect human beings when exposed to infected animals and is caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis. In other words it can be said that a disease which arises due to the lack of adequate and balanced food is called a deficiency disease, Deficiency diseases are also called nutritional Symptoms and forms of anthrax : Cutaneous : It is not a common infection, however, if not treated timely and properly, it man result; into death. disorders. Inhalation : Anthrax may also be caused due The deficiency diseases are of following three types – to inhalation. Initial symptoms are similar to that of common cold. Protein-Energy deficiency diseases or ProteinEnergy Malnutrition (PEM); Intestinal : Symptoms of this form of anthrax are excessive pain, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and ultimately blood vomiting. Vitamin deficiency; Mineral deficiency. Prevention : A complete course of anthrax 5.1 Protein-Energy deficiency diseases vaccination which includes four subcutaneous injections should be taken. 5.2 Vitamin deficiency diseases 5.3 Mineral deficiency diseases Control : Proper antibiotic, as per the advise of a qualified doctor, should be taken. 5.1 Protein-Energy Deficiency Diseases : Deficiency of proteins, carbohydrates and fats result’s in protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) . 60 Biology - Immunity and Human Diseases
  • 25. PEM occurs more frequently among infants and young children between 1 to 5 year of age. Two common forms of PEM are Kwashiorkor and Marasmus. (A) Kwashiorkor : General Introduction : Kwashiorkor is the common protein deficiency disease of children. Fig. Marasmus Kwashiorkor is an African word from Ghana which means ‘neglected child’. Symptoms : Wasting of muscles observed. Ribs becomes prominent. Dry, thin and wrinkled skin is observed. Diarrhoea is a very common symptom. Prevention : A protein-rich diet should be given. Besides this, the diet should also contain sufficient amount of carbohydrates and fats. In case of unavailability of mother’s milk, the child should be given pure and undiluted cow’s milk. Fig. Kwashiorkor Symptoms - Control : Swollen abdomen with cracked and scaly skin. Babies should be breast-fed as long as possible. Limbs become thin. 5.2 Vitamins Deficiency Diseases : Oedema and Diarrhoea. Retardation in brain and mental development. Prevention - Vitamins are organic compounds which are always taken along with food in small amounts. Sufficient amount of protein-rich diet should be given. Absence of these in diet for prolonged periods may cause deficiency diseases. A diet with a combination of wheat, gram, peanuts, soybean and jaggery gives satisfactory results to cure Kwashiorkor. Diseases caused by the deficiency of vitamins are Scurvy, Rickets, Beri Beri, Pellagra and Xerophthalmia. On the vitamins solubility vitamins deficiency diseases are two types – (B) Marasmus : General Introduction : (A) Deficiency of Fat Soluble Vitamins : Like Kwashiorkor, Marasmus is also a disease affecting children below the age of five. (B) Deficiency of Water Soluble Vitamins : (A) Diseases Caused by Deficiency of Soluble Vitamins A & D - It is caused due to protein-energy malnutrition which develops in infants during the first few months. Biology - Immunity and Human Diseases (I) Xerophthalmia 61 (II) Rickets
  • 26. (I) Xerophthalmia or Night Blindness : General Introduction Xerophthalmia is caused by the deficiency of a fat-soluble vitamin, called vitamin A or retinol. Retinol is a fat-soluble vitamin and is required to maintain general health and vigour of epithelial cells of our eyes, skin and hair and thus, contributes to general growth our body. Fig. Rickets (bow leg) Symptoms : Prevention/Control : Retarded growth, atrophy, keratinization, in the epithelial cells. Vitamin D prevents rickets by helping the body to absorb calcium. Dry and scaly skin (dermatosis). Human skin contains a large amount of a compound called 7-dehydrocholesterol . When ultraviolet rays of sunlight falls on our skin, then this compound is converted into vitamin- D. In our country the new born babies are exposed to sunlight every day. This is done to produce vitamin D which will prevent rickets. Shortage of vitamin A disables a person from seeing in dim light or in dark, a condition called Nyctalopia or Night blindness. Eye disease due to retinal deficiency, called keratomalacia. Prevention/Control : (B) Diseases Caused by Deficiency of Water Soluble Vitamins B and C : Carrot and milk are the two best available sources of vitamin A, and are thus highly useful for the improvement of vision and in curing night blindness. (Ι ) Ι Beri-beri (Ι Ι ) Ι Pellagra or 4D-Syndrome (ΙΙΙ) Scurvy Ι Other good sources of vitamin A are green leafy vegetables, pumpkin, mango, fish liver oil and liver. (Ι ) Beri-beri : Ι General Introduction - (Ι Ι ) Rickets : Ι Beri-beri was first observed amongst Japanese seamen who generally fed with a diet of polished rice. General Introduction Deficiency of vitamin D or Calciferol in the diet causes increased loss of Ca 2+ in urine therefore, no calcium ion (Ca2+) gets deposited in the bone. It was then investigate that the polished or dehusked rice is deficient in vitamin B. Beriberi occurs mainly in areas where polished rice is the staple diet of the people. Disease of bones called rickets in children and Osteomalacia in adults. Polished rice since it causes a deficiency of vitamin B1 or Thiamine in our body. Symptoms Bones of children suffering from rickets become thin, soft and weak due to poor deposition of calcium and phosphorus in them. Symptoms - The signs of rickets in children are bow legs (bent legs) due to deformation in long bones (leg bones). Extreme weakness, headache and dizziness. Waterlogging of the tissues resulting in severe pain in legs, and oedema. Loss of appetite is also occur. Paralysis of some body parts may also occur. 62 Biology - Immunity and Human Diseases
  • 27. Prevention/Control : Prevention/Control - A-diet rich in vitamin B1 should be taken. Diet supplemented with following plant sources viz., cereal husk, peas, beans, green leafy vegetables, coffee and animal sources viz., liver, fish, milk, egg yolk will either prevent or control the disease. The food items rich in vitamin B1 include grain cereals, beans, groundnuts, green vegetables, soybean, milk and seafood. (Ι Ι ) Pellagra or 4D-Syndrome : Ι (ΙΙΙ) Scurvy : Ι General Introduction - General Introduction : The deficiency of vitamin B4 or niacin Deficiency of vitamin-C in the diet causes a deficiency disease, called scurvy. (= nicotinic acid) in the diet causes a disease called pellagra. Vitamin C deficient persons usually include the homeless, alcoholic, lonely house bound women and bottle fed babies. Pellagra is an Italian word which means rough skin. Symptoms - Vitamin C promotes collagen (= protein) synthesis and collagen is a main component of connective tissues which are present in the walls of blood vessels. Pellagra disease is characterized by four D’s (called 4D syndrome). i.e. four grouped of symptoms are(i) Dermatitis (ii) Diarrhoea (iii) Dementia (iv) Death Symptoms : Swelling and bleeding of gums. Loosening of the teeth, which eventually may fall out. Pain in the joints. pigments General weakness and fatigue. A B with pellagra normal Fig. Symptoms of pellagra on the skin of hands of a patient. Fig. Swollen, spongy gums and loose teeth as a result of chronic vitamin C deeficiency. Dermatitis means inflammation of the skin and it is characterized by skin eczema. Prevention/Control : Diarrnoea means loose motion which is due to disturbances of digestive tract. Scurvy can be cured by giving vitamin C-rich diet. Dementia means psychological disturbances or mental degeneration and its symptoms include depression, irritability and delirium. All citrus fruits, e.g. lime, lemon, oranges, amla, etc., are a good source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is destroyed by heating and, therefore, uncooked vegetables are very rich in vitamin C.

  • 28. 5.3 Minerals Deficiency Diseases : Deficiency or lack of various minerals in the human diet gives rise to different diseases. Some of the mineral deficiency diseases are : Anaemia, Goitre. (I) Anaemia : General Introduction : This is the disease caused by deficiency of iron, which is required to form the protein– Haemoglobin present in red blood cells in our body. Fig. Goitre In children, deficiency of iodine results in a disease called cretinism or infantile Anaemic patients, percentage haemoglobin (Hb) will be low in blood. myxedema. The main function of Hb is to transport O2 from lungs to various parts of the body. Deficiency of dietary iodine in adults leads to a disease is called goitre. Symptoms : Prevention/Control - A person suffering from anaemia, becomes pale, loses appetite and feels tired. Sea food, leafy vegetables, water, iodized salt, etc. are rich in iodine, diet supplemented with them will restore normal function of thyroid. Prevention/Control : Liver, eggs, molasses, cereal, pulses, leafy vegetables, egg plant, apple, banana, guava are rich in iron. Besides, intra muscular injection of iodized oil (mostly poppy-seed oil) or oral sodium iodate tablet developed by ICMR has been found to be effective against goitre. Disease can be prevented or can be controlled, by including iron containing vegetables and fruits in the daily diet. Efforts of ICMR are also on to develop common salt fortified with iron and iodine, i.e. “two-inone’ salt to check the disease. (II) Goitre : General Introduction - 6. VACCINATION : Goitre is an endemic disease which is caused due to deficiency of a mineral, called iodine in human diet. The first true vaccine consisting of weakened micro organisms against chicken cholera was developed in 1880 by the french Scientist Louis Iodine is an important constituent of a hormones called thyroxin which is secreted by an endocrine gland called thyroid gland. Posteur. Vaccine is a preparation of killed, inactivated or attenuated (weakend) microorganism or toxoids induce immunity. Symptoms Retarded growth. The vaccination is a process of conferring immunity by administering a vaccine. Mental disability. Vaccination is a technique to develop immunity without infection. Weakend (attenuated) or dead pathogens, or portion of pathogens, are injected Abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland (called goitre). 64 Biology - Immunity and Human Diseases

The pathogens given in a vaccine are unable to cause the disease, but are sufficient to stimulate the formation of antibodies by the host’s immune system that recognize the antigens. Thus, a vaccinated person develops immunity against the pathogen without contracting the disease. Often 2 or 3 additional doses needed to generate adequate immunity. There are called booster doses. Small pox was the first disease to be eliminated by vaccination. It is also the first disease to be officially declared wiped out by human efforts. Todays, vaccines are available against small pox, cholera, measles, mumps, polio & rabies. Biology - Immunity and Human Diseases 65

Introduction Exhaustible resources are of two types : Inexhaustibel Resources (A) Nonrenewable energy resources Exhaustible Resources (B) Renewable energy resources. Wild Life Resources (A) Non-Renewable or Conventional Energy resources - Biogeochemical Cycles Ø It is directly or Indirectly from the sun and present in limited quantity. Ex. Coal & Petroleum (Fossil fuels) which cannot be renewed and produce a lot of air pollution and water pollution. 1. INTRODUCTION :: (B) Renewable or Non-Conventional Energy Resources : Definition : The stock of the nature such as air, water, soil, coal, minerals, animals and plants are useful to mankind in many ways. They are termed as natural resources. Ø These are solar radiation, wind power, hydel power, biomass and nuclear power. They are pollution free sources of energy which can be renewed in nature. Types of Natural Resources : “The energy received from sun in the form of heat and light is known as solar energy.” Natural resources are broadly classified into following two categories : Inexhaustible Resources q Fossil fuel - Exhaustible Resources Ø Fossil fuels are remains organisms embedded in the surface of the earth with high carbon, hydrogen contents which are used by man as fuels. 2. INEXHAUSTIBLE RESOURCES :: Ø These resources are present in unlimited quantity in the nature and they are not likely to be exhausted by human activities. Ø These are those energy resources which are extracted from the earth eg. coal, oil, natural gas and petroleum have resulted from the decay of dead plants & animals in the absence of oxygen. Fossils means the remains of living things, so these fuels have been named as fossil fuel. Ø Solar energy, wind power, tidal power, rainfall and even atomic energy are classified as inexhaustible resources. 72 Biology - Natural Resources
  • 37. Types of Inexaustible Resources : mainly of methane which is produced when organic matter decays under anaerobic conditions. Cow-dung, faecal matter and other biodegradable wastes are allowed to decay under anaerobic conditions in digesters equipped with device to collect methane thus formed. Biogas is produced by the degradation of biological matter by the bacterial action in the absence of free oxygen. q Air Ø Total volume of air present in atmosphere consists of 78 per cent nitrogen, 21 per cent oxygen and 1 per cent other gases such as carbon dioxide ammonia, methane, hydrogen, ozone and noble gases such as neon, helium, krypton, xenon and radon. q Water - q The average composition of biogas is : Ø The seas, oceans, rivers, streams, lakes, pools, polar ice caps, water vapour, etc. form the hydrosphere. Ø CH4 (Methane) 50 - 60 % Ø Water is of two types : Salt water (sea) and fresh water. Ø H2 (Hydrogen) 5 - 10 % Ø CO2 (Carbon di oxide) 30 - 40 % Ø N2 (Nitrogen) 2 - 6 % Ø Fresh water : It is an unlimited natural resource. Its quality is often degraded but not quantity. Fresh water is obtained from the following three naturel sources : Ø H2S (Hydrogen sulphide) traces 4. WILD LIFE RESOURCES : Flora term is used for plant species and fauna for animal species which occur in domesticated and living in a natural habitat and constitute important renewable natural resources. (a) Rain water, (b) Surface water (surface flow) or (c) Ground water. 4.1 Conservation of Wild Life : Types of Exhaustible Resources : Wild life plays an important role in biosphere, and thus be should be conserved. Some important measures for conserving wildlife are mentioned below: q Soil Ø The superficial layer that covers large areas of the earth’s crust is called soil. It consists of mineral particles, decaying and decayed organic materials, living organisms, air and water and acts as a medium for plant growth, supporting them and supplying them with nutrients. It is also a habitat for numerous animals and microorganisms. Soil is actually exhaustible but maintainable natural resource. Ø Natural habitat should be protected by bringing up more National Parks, Sanctuaries and Biosphere Reserves. Ø Successful captivity breeding programme should be introduced to maintain plant and animal species. Ø Public awareness programme like Van Mahotsava, should be taken with all sincerity. Ø The word ‘soil’ is derived from a Latin word ‘solum’ meaning earthly material in which plants grow. Soil is a stratified mixture of inorganic and organic materials, both of which are decomoposition products. The soil forming rocks by fragmentation or weathering. Ø Government should pass legislations to protect wildlife. Ø Poaching should be checked. Ø Heavy penalties should be imposed on traders of furs, skins and feathers. q Biogas - Ø Forests should be conserved by afforestation. Ø Biogas “A mixture of gases is produced by the anaerobic degradation of animal and agricultural wastes, it is called bio-gas.” Biogas consists Ø Agro-forestry programme should be implemented. Biology - Natural Resources Ø Ornamental and aesthetic trees should be planted more. 73

It is about 1 % of India’s total geographical area. In National Parks activities (Forestry, Cultivation or grazing) are not permitted. The Biosphere Reserves are a special category of protected areas of land or coastal environment, wherein people are in integral component of the system. The Jim Corbett National Park near Nainital was the first National Park established in India. Notable among then are Kaziranga. National Park for Asiatic Lion, Corbett National Park & Kanha National Park. Roles of Biosphere Reserves : (A) Conservation : Ø To ensure the conservation of landscapes, ecosystems, species and genetic resources. It also encourages traditional resources use. Some important National Park of India are given in table : (B) Development : (B) Sanctuaries : Ø To promote economic development which is culturally, socially and ecologically sustainable. It is protection of fauna only. Operations such as collection of minor forest products & private ownerships rights, harvesting of timber are allowed provided they do not affect the animals adversely. At present there are 492 Wild life Sancturies in our countary. Out of 581 National Parks & Sancturies 17 havebeen selected for ‘Project Tiger’.

Clouds Snow, Hail, Sleet, Rain Transpiration Evaporation Evaporation Local Rain Run off Ponds & Lakes Rivers Plants Sea Animals Ocean Soil GRAVITATIONAL WATER The Water Cycle 5.1 Hydrological or Water Cycle : Atmospheric Oxygen O2 A Wonder Liquid - Organic Molecules C6H12O6 Ø Water on earth is cycled by two processes, evaporation and precipitation. Ø The atmospheric precipitation occurs in the form of snow, hail or sleet etc. The run off water is finally collected in ocean through rivers. OXYGEN CYCLE Photosynthesis Respiration Ø Some water remains solid in the form of snow which gradually melts and reaches the sea. Ø Soil water is used by plants and most of it again reaches the atmosphere through transpiration. CO2 Ø Animals consume water directly from water bodies & also the gravitational water. H2O Ø By evaporation, the water returns to atmosphere and cycle is repeated. 5.3 Carbon Cycle : Ø CO2 is 0.03% in atmosphere, which is utilized by producers in photosynthesis for making food. 5.2 Oxygen Cycle : Ø From producers, it goes to consumers and then through decomposers into atmosphere. Ø Oxygen required for respiration is plants and animals enters into body from the sorrounding environment. Oxygen back to environment in the form of CO2 and water. Oxygen enters through plants as CO2 and water during photosynthesis. It is released in the form of molecular oxygen. Ø The producers, consumers & decomposers may be converted into fossil fuel (petrol, coal etc.) or form carbonate rock after death. Ø By way of respiration the biotic component returns CO2 to atmosphere. 76 Biology - Natural Resources
