Bark of Neem Tree (Azadirachta indica) as Bioindicator for Deposition of Heavy Metals around Katsina Steel Rolling Company in Katsina Township

In this study, the bark of the neem tree (Azadirachta indica) is used as a bio-indicator to monitor heavy metal pollution in Katsina township. Heavy metals can be absorbed by plants through their roots from the soil and water, as well as through their leaves from the atmosphere. Heavy metal uptake, accumulation, and translocation Metal…

Investigating of the Aba River Contamination Using Eichhornia crassipes as Bio-indicator

Eichhornia crassipies were used to investigate the seasonal variation of heavy metal contamination levels in the Aba River in Abia State, Nigeria. The presence of Macrophytes in rivers is frequently a strong indicator of heavy metal accumulation in water bodies. To cover the Nigerian rainy season and the Harmattan season, bi-monthly sampling was carried out.…

Spectormetric Analysis on Spatio–Temporal Bioaccumaltion Anomalies of Air Pollutants in a Bioindicator

The pattern and bioaccumulation of particulate air pollutants on surfaces varies with location and season. A closer look into these anomalies in the accumulation levels in a well-known versatile tropical waste land plant, Castor (Ricinus communis) would enable for evaluating its prospective as a bioindicator of pollution. The spatial differences in pollution accumulation levels across…
