Assessment of Atmospheric Metal Pollution Biomonitoring Potential by Neem Tree (Azadirachta indica) Leaves in Katsina Metropolitan Area of Katsina State, Nigeria

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 […]

Modeling of Heavy Metal (Ni, Mn, Co, Zn, Cu, Pb, and Fe) and PAH Content in Stormwater Sediments Based on Weather and Physico-Geographical Characteristics of the Catchment: An Advance Data-Mining Approach

The processes that determine the quality of sediment in drainage systems are dynamic and complicated. However, because these topics have not been widely examined in research studies, there is relatively little information available on the effects of both watershed characteristics and meteorological circumstances on sediment chemical properties. The amount of selected heavy metals (Ni, Mn, […]

Accumulation of Heavy Metals in Soil and Their Transfer to Tissues of Azadirachta indica Collected from Akungba-Akoko, Nigeria

Cadmium, cobalt, iron, lead, and zinc levels were measured in tissues (roots, leaves, and stems) of Azadirachta indica collected at various locations in Akungba-Akoko, Nigeria (Nigeria). The elements’ transfer coefficients into plant tissues were also calculated in order to quantify differences in bioavailability among plant species. The tissues were acid-digested and flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry […]

Research on Concentration and Chemical Speciation of Heavy Met-Als in Urban Soils of Warri, Nigeria

To determine whether substantial concentrations of the metals are mobile and bioavailable in Warri’s urban soils, a chemical method (1) and Tessier’s method [1] were used to determine the pseudo total and chemical speciation of manganese, chromium, lead, and zinc. The intervention values were determined to determine whether the metal contamination had reached the point […]

Monitoring and Safety Assessment of the Presence of Heavy Metals and Organic Pollutants in Vended Street Foods from Selected Locations in Lagos State Nigeria

In order to determine their safety level, this study was aimed at investigating the prevalence of heavy metals and volatile organic contaminants in street-selling foods sourced from three selected locations in Lagos State, Nigeria. Feed toxicity results from heavy metal food contamination, bioaccumulation, and food chain biomagnification. The research was conducted using absolute randomization design […]

An Assessmental Study on the Determination of Heavy Metals in Sediment of Fish Farms in Bangladesh

Despite scarce scientific work on revier sediemtn and fish in Bangladesh, heavy metal pollution of aquatic ecosystems is often most evident in sediments, but unfortunately no work has yet been published particularly on heavy metal contamination of fresh water fish farm sediments. In order to assess the environmental contamination of the selected fish farms in […]

Molecular Sociology: Integrating Philosophy of Science, Psychology and Community

In an effort by the author to derive a new branch of sociology, this chapter introduced a new definition, “Molecular Sociology.” The consequence of the author’s numerous publications led him to think of molecular sociology as a new branch of sociology. These studies have extensively examined human behavioural initiatives and motives that can not be […]

Investigation of the Anatomical Variability of the Trunk and Root Tissues of Rhizophora racemosa (G. Mey) and Avicennia germinans (Linné): A Bioaccumulation of Heavy Metals and Pollution Effects on Mangrove Trees Study

Aim: To assess the anatomical heterogeneity between R’s wood tissues. A. and Racemosa. Germinans and to monitor the effect of the contamination of metal trace elements (MTE) on the chemical composition and the natural longevity of these mangroves in Gabon. Style of the Research: For this study, laboratory-experiment design was used. Study position and duration: […]

Effects of Season and Fish Smoking on Heavy Metal Contents of Selected Fish Species from Three Locations in Borno State of Nigeria, as Determined with AAS and ICP-OES

With the world’s growing population, the provision of a safe, nutritious, and wholesome food supply has become a major challenge. Owing to both manmade and natural processes, an array of chemical and toxic agents find their way into our food supplies, including fish, through multiple routes. When consumed, such contaminated food can endanger or even […]

Advanced Study on Phytoattenuation of Soil Metal Contamination: The Effects of Plant Growth Relgualtors (GA3 and IAA) by Employing Wetland Macrophyte Vetiver and Energy Plant Sunflower

Phytoattenuation, a novel green remediation concept, has been successfully demonstrated while employing vetiver and biostimulator (gibberellic acid GA3 and indol-3-acetic acid IAA) to gradually mitigate soil Cu levels. The effectiveness of stimulator GA3 and IAA was in the descending sequence GA3> IAA. Biostimulator has been demonstrated plant growth enhancement and been employed for agricultural operation. […]
