Abstract: The aim of the study is to examine the technical and security conditions of state vessels traveling to Bushehrports. This research is filled out through a 22-item questionnaire by 40 security and controlling officers of Bushehrvessels. The results of Kolmogrov-Smirinov test suggest that the data are normal and T-test has been used for questionnaire analysis. The findings indicate that failure in technical and security certificates, failure of qualification certificate, failure of machinery and electrical appliances, structural safety defects, failure of telecommunication equipment, failure of security in under 500 tons motor boats and traditional and metal vessels [1]. As well, above 500 tons vessels traveling to Bushehr waters (state vessels) have suitable conditions.

Biodiversitas , 2012,
Abstract: The purpose of this project is attempt to ecological development of Avicennia marina in hyper saline condition. During 2001 and 2002 a restoration mangrove project " planting A. marina in artificial inlet in Bushehr Province, Iran" was carried out in Agriculture &Natural resources research center of Bushehr province in Sabkha lands. Some the vegetative characteristics of such as height, diameter and crown diameter in two aspects were recorded in 2012. To investigate physico-chemical properties of soil were taken in inside and outside of inlet and were analyzed: salinity, soil acidity, potassium, phosphorus, nitrogen, texture of soil were measured. Both of treatments were analyzed by T test in SAS Software. The result showed that a different significant between inside and outside of Inlet in soil acidity, electrical conductivity, potassium content and sand and clay percent. But were not different significant in N and P. After ten years halophyte plants such as: Salicornia herbacea and Halocnemum strobilaceum and animals such as: mudskippers were observed into this area. Site conditions have an influence on the growth of seedling, which shows a different growth in the outside and inside of artificial inlets.

Abstract: Background and Objective: Road transportation and specifically bus travel accounts for the bulk of travel. Contaminated drinking water consumption is one of the issues that threaten health, and always there is pollution possibility in drinking water in buses. This study evaluated the microbial quality of consumed drinking water in buses and also compared it with available standards. Materials and Methods: This study is a cross-sectional study. By considering similar studies, 95% confidence interval and based on the samples size formula for tradition of proportion, 80 buses from 122 buses that entered Bushehr Passenger Depot from other cities or exited it were randomly selected. Over a three-month period, samples were taken from drinking water in these buses. Temperature, pH, residual chlorine, total coliform (TC), and fecal coliform (E. coli) in each sample were measured in accordance with the standard method. Statistical analysis of the data was carried out with SPSS Version 16, and the t-test was performed for statistical difference. Results: The results showed that residual chlorine in 97.5% was zero and pH values of the samples were in the range of 6.8-8.7. TC and E. coli numbers in 12.5% and 8.8% of the samples were higher than those of standards, respectively. Conclusion: Use of ice, washing time of the drinking water tank (daily or weekly), and method of usage and storage of drinking water (with 20-liter tanks) had significant effects on the bacterial loads of the drinking water in the tanks (p value <0.05). Some factors such as tank material, driver's education and age, type and model of the bus, filling time of the tank (daily or weekly), the method of filling and emptying the tank (complete clearing out of the tank or otherwise), and distance had no significant effect on the quality of the drinking water in the buses.

Abstract: Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) concentrations in sediments measured from five stations in coastal area of Bushehr-Iran. Total PAHs concentration ranged from 844.9 to 4790.3 ng g-1 in summer and 935.0 to 4972.0 ng g-1 in winter. Significant difference was observed between total PAHs concentration in studied stations (P<0.05). Among the studied stations tPAHs concentration was higher in Rafael and followed by Sheghab station. The lowest level of tPAHs observed in Abshirinkon station. There was no significant difference between tPAHs concentration in August and February (P>0.05). Based on the number of aromatic rings in the molecular structure, the composition pattern of PAHs was different within studied stations. The studied stations receives their PAHs from both petrogenic and pyrolitic sources. The level of PAHs contamination in the Bushehr coastline founded to be moderate to high compared with other studied locations. Regular monitoring of PAHs contaminant in the region is recommended.

Abstract: The Bushehr Province of Iran contains the type localities of three scorpion taxa, Mesobuthus eupeus phillipsii (Pocock, 1889), Orthochirus iranus Kova ík, 2004, and Scorpio maurus townsendi (Pocock, 1900). Apart from them, Androctonus crassicauda (Olivier, 1807), Compsobuthus matthiesseni (Birula, 1905), Hottentotta saulcyi (Simon, 1880), Odontobuthus bidentatus Louren o & Pézier, 2002, Razianus zarudnyi (Birula, 1903), and Hemiscorpius lepturus Peters, 1862 have also been known to occur in the province. Collections made by a team under Shahrokh Navidpour (Razi Reference Laboratory of Scorpion Research, Razi Vaccine and Serum Research Institute, Ahvaz, Khoozestan, Iran) reveal four additional species recorded from the province for the first time: Buthacus macrocentrus (Ehrenberg, 1828), Compsobuthus jakesi Kova ík, 2003, Orthochirus farzanpayi (Vachon & Farzanpay, 1987), and Orthochirus stockwelli (Louren o et Vachon, 1995). In addition, Compsobuthus persicus sp. n. is described as a species new to science, bringing the total species count to 14. A key to all species of scorpions found in Bushehr Province is presented.

Molecular Biology Research Communications , 2013,
Abstract: Six highly variable microsatellite loci were used to investigate the genetic diversity and population structure of the Garra rufa in Kermanshah and Bushehr provinces, Iran. All of the 6 microsatellite loci screened in this study showed polymorphism. A total of 90 individual fish from 3 populations were genotyped and 60 alleles were observed in all loci. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 6 to14. The average allelic number of these polymorphic markers was 10. The averages of observed (Ho) and expected heterozygosity (He) was 0.529 and 0.826, respectively. The genetic distance values ranged between 0.235-0.570. The UPGMA dendrogram based on genetic distance resulted in three clusters: Gamasiab population alone was classified as one and the other two populations as the second cluster. This study revealed a fairly high level of genetic variation in the microsatellite loci within the three populations, and identified distinct population groups of Garra rufa. This study gains significance for the analysis of the populations’ genetic diversity as well as the management of this important fish resource.

Abstract: Background Epidemiological studies on genital human papilloma viruses infection (HPVs) in general population are crucial for the implementation of health policy guidelines for developing the strategies to prevent the primary and secondary cervical cancer. In different parts of Iran, there is a lack of population-based studies to determine the prevalence of HPV in the general population. The aim of this population-based study is to compare the prevalence rate of genital HPV infection among reproductive women with our previous clinic-based data, which showed a prevalence rate of 5% in women in southern Iran. Results Using general primers for all genotypes of HPV, of 799 randomly selected women, five (0.63%, 95% CI 0.23-1.55%) tested positive for HPV DNA. Overall, seven different HPV genotypes were detected: six types (16, 18, 31, 33, 51 and 56) were carcinogenic, or “high risk genotypes” and one genotype (HPV-66) was “probably carcinogenic.” Conclusions In a population-based study, the prevalence of HPV infection among southern Iranian women was lower than that observed worldwide. However, our gynaecological clinic-based study on the prevalence of HPV infection showed results comparable with other studies in the Middle East and Persian Gulf countries. Since gynaecological clinic-based data may generally overestimate HPV prevalence, estimates of prevalence according to clinic-based data should be adjusted downward by the population-based survey estimates.

Journal of Applied Sciences , 2007,
Abstract: Bushehr city is one of the famous city in the south of Iran which is situated in the coastal part of Persian Gulf. This paper try to discuss one of the most important theme which threat the sustainability and comfortability of tomorrow’s life. Changing Bushehr into an Energic city is one of the effective ways to solve the cities problem. For this purpose, we try to answer these questions: what is called as an energic city?; What are its main characteristics?; What are the aims of changing a city into an energic city? And what should be done to obtain the aims? For these purposes we offer a model which responds to the sustainability of Bushehr. This model uses 3 levels of activity that each level should respond to 5 significant characteristics of an energic city. For this purpose we present some applied ways in each category to obtain those characteristics.

Abstract: We present a study to field measurement and laboratory experiments of light for university students in physical oceanography. During 6thto 8thof February 2009 in two stations of Bushehr province central coasts, sampling of sea water and other effective physical parameters were carried out. The effects of laser light in 532, 659, and 980nm on the collected water samples in two different stations were studied. Then light attenuation coefficient and the amount of light penetration percentage for these stations at different depths were calculated. According to the results of this study, light attenuation coefficient in the first station, the wave length for red and infrared lights is more than the wave length for green light. For red and infrared wave lengths the amount of light absorption in the first station is more than the second one. The salinity, temperature, and cloud cover parameters are not effective in the amount of light absorption. The effective factor in increasing the amount of light absorption in this station than the second station is water turbidity

M. J. Nazemosadat,A. R. Ghasemi
Journal of Science and Technology of Agriculture and Natural Resources , 2003,
Abstract: The present study evaluates the influence of the El Ninio Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon on the cold season precipitation over Isfahan, Fars, Khuzestan, Chaharmahal-Bakhtyari, Bushehr and Kohgiluyeh-Boyerahmad provinces. The results indicate that the occurrence of La Nina events caused a 20% to 50% reduction in precipitation over Bushehr, Chaharmahal-Bakhtyari and southern Fars. The cold event did not change the total precipitation over the other parts of the region. In contrast to La Nina episodes, the occurrence of El Ninio events caused a 20% to 70% increase in rainfall in most of the study area. While the most highly wet conditions are related to the El Ninio events, the occurrence probability of the severe droughts has found to be low during such events. In association with La Nina events, the occurrence probability of severe drought was found to be low. Only in Khuzestan and southern parts of the Fars Provinces, this probability has increased to about 0.5.
