Trace metal concentrations in plants and animals have been used as an indicator of environmental monitoring. Heavy metals from the soil primarily enter plants through the root system. In general, plant roots are the most important site for chemical uptake from soil. The leaves of the neem tree (Azadirachta indica) were used as a bio-indicator in this study to track trace metal levels in Katsina. Leaves were collected from four locations in Katsina metropolis: Site A, Site B, Site C, … Continue reading “Assessment of Atmospheric Metal Pollution Biomonitoring Potential by Neem Tree (Azadirachta indica) Leaves in Katsina Metropolitan Area of Katsina State, Nigeria”

Using atomic absorption spectrophotometry, the burdens of seven trace metals, Mn, Zn, Pb, Cr, Co, Ni, Cu, and Fe, were studied in the leaves of two tree plant species in the region of Batagarawa Local Government Area in Katsina State. The tree plants were Adansonia digitata (Baobab) and Eucalyptus globulus (Gum tree). The results showed the levels of metals (µgg-1 per dry weight) in baobab leaves to be 46.00 (Mn), 23.50 (Zn), 2.00 (Pb), 12.50 (Cr), 12.00 (Co), 2.00 (Ni), … Continue reading “Assessment of Trace Metals in the Leaves of Adansonia digitata and Eucalyptus globulus along Dutsinma Road in Batagarawa Local Government Area of Katsina State”

Water is a crucial essential for life to exist on the planet. Water has long been a source of life for humans, and all organisms require it to survive. The city of North Erode in TamilNadu is the focus of our investigation. Many dyeing, chemical, and tannery industries surround Erode to the north. These companies damage groundwater sources by releasing their effluents directly into them. Due to waste disposal by tannery enterprises, dyeing units, and paper mills located near the … Continue reading “Assessment of Groundwater Pollution in Erode City (North), Tamil Nadu, India”
