Alterations on the plasma concentration of hormonal and non hormonal biomarkers in human beings submitted to whole body vibration exercises

Vibration is a mechanical stimulus that is characterized by an oscillatory motion. When there is a direct contact of a person, in general standing on the base of this type of platform, the vibration that is produced in these machines is transmitted to the body of the subject producing whole body vibration (WBV) exercises.

Group balanced block design for comparisons among oilseed Brassicae

The brassica genus contains the most genetically diverse collection of agriculturally important plant species, including oilseed, mustard and cruciferous species. Comparisons for seed yield and its components were drawn among brown (Brassica rapa var. brown sarson), gobhi (Brassica napus) and yellow sarson (B. rapa var. trilocularis). Brown sarson was found high yielder by virtue of its high siliquae number per plant...
