Book fair held at FUUAST
Karachi: Educational standards and book-reading habits are fast declining in Pakistan, said the speakers at the inaugural ceremony of the Book Fair at the Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science & Technology (FUUAST), which was organised by the Study Aid Project (SAP) of the Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT) on Tuesday.

Dr Meraj ul Huda Siddiqui, Naib Amir, Jamaat-e-Islami, Karachi, who inaugurated the fair, was critical of the callous attitude of the government that was giving the least attention to the educational sector. "The government has imposed taxes on the import of printing paper that is essential for the printing of books. As a result, books are sold at higher prices and only affluent members of society can afford them. Education has become a super market where customers with bulging purses can come and buy while people of lower classes do not dare to even peep inside a bookshop," Dr Huda said.

Ahsan Saeed, Director of Kifayat Academy lamented the government's polices that had put the publishers in a no-win situation. They wanted to sell the books at affordable prices but their hands were tied because of the import duties levied on printing paper.

Professor Afzal, the Student Advisor of FUUAST, praised the organisers of the book fair who managed to hold it with their limited resources.

He also said that the university will establish a digital library in a few days where 50 computers will be provided for the students. Students from FUUAST and other institutions thronged the fair and purchased books that were offered on a discount ranging from 20 to 50 per cent.

Dendrochronology to be taught at FUUAST
Karachi: When Dr Moinuddin Ahmed, a professor of plant ecology and Dendrochrolongy, returned from New Zealand to contribute something towards the development of the country, his revolutionary ideas at the time caused everyone around him to ostracise him. Thus, he was compelled to go back to New Zealand.

Fortunately for him, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) recognised the importance of what he does and he was invited to join the Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science & Technology (FUUAST) as a Foreign Faculty to conduct research and teach Dendrochronology.

So what is Dendrochronology and why is it so important? "Simply put, Dendrochronology is the dating of past events (climatic changes) through the study of tree ring growth," explained Dr Ahmed.

According to Dr Ahmed, botanists, foresters and archaeologists began using this technique during the early part of the 20th century. Discovered by A.E. Douglass from the University of Arizona, USA, he noted that the wide rings of certain species of trees were produced during wet years and, inversely, narrow rings during dry seasons.

Each year, a tree adds a layer of wood to its trunk and branches, thus creating the annual rings we see when viewing a cross-section of a tree trunk. New wood grows from the cambium layer between the old wood and the bark. In spring, when moisture is plentiful, the tree devotes its energy to producing new growth cells. These new cells are large, but as the summer progresses their size decreases until in the fall, growth stops and cells die with no new growth appearing until the next spring. The contrast between these smaller old cells and next year's larger new cells is enough to establish a ring, thus making the counting possible.

Dr Ahmed has PhD and post-doctorate degrees from the University of Auckland. Incidentally, the only Muslim PhD holder in Dendrochronology, has conducted intensive research on Kauri tree, a tree that is found in New Zealand and reaches a length of 80 metres and has a circumference of about 45 feet, a height of 169ft and its estimated age is 2,100 years.

"It is so huge that it can accommodate 10 people in its hollow room-like trunk," he said describing the enormity of the tree.

Dendrochronology can help solve many environmental problems. Tree-ring analysis can be used in a variety of ways to diagnose pollution effects in its early stages, and to help adjust certain irrigation projects.

The bristlecone chronologies had raised questions regarding radiocarbon dating methods and have been use to recalibrate the C-14 process.

Carbon naturally exists as several isotopes (versions of the same element, with a different number of neutrons in the nucleus): C12 (the most common), C13 and C14.

C14, unlike the other isotopes, is radioactive - over time, it will decay and become nitrogen instead. The half-life (the amount of time for half of a given sample to decay) of C14 is around 6,000 years. Dr Ahmed is hopeful that his research will help in unearthing the many mysteries of wildlife in Pakistan.
