Remediation of contaminated lands in the Niger Delta, Nigeria: Prospects and challenges.
Contamination of the total environment (air, soil, water and biota) by crude oil has become a paramount interest in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. Studies have revealed variable impacts of oilExpand
Environmental degradation and cultural erosion in Ogoniland: A case study of the oil spills in Bodo
Abstract This paper examines the impact of two significant oil spills in the Niger Delta which occurred in 2008. It focuses specifically on the Bodo community in Ogoniland. The paper adheres to KenExpand

Spatio-temporal dynamics of interstitial water physical and chemical characteristics were investigated on 5 intertidal platforms at Bodo Creek for 2 years (May 2006 – April 2008). Temperature andExpand
Interstitial Nutrient Fluxes in Niger Delta Soft-Bottom Tidal Flats: Implications for Interfacial Regeneration and Local Productivity
3 Abstract: This study examined spatio-temporal changes and seasonality of nutrients (nitrate-nitrogen, phosphate-phosphorus and sulphate) in soft-bottom tidal flats of Bodo Creek. Interstitial waterExpand
Influence of Stocking Density on Growth and Survival of Post Fry of the African Mud Catfish, Clarias gariepinus
The effect of stocking density on growth and survival of post fry of the African mud catfish, Clarias gariepinus, was investigated. C. gariepinus post fry were stocked at the rate of 5, 10, 15, 20,Expand
Status, progress and challenges of phytoremediation - An African scenario.
Environmental pollution occasioned by artisanal activities and technical failures at exploration sites has affected mostly oil producing and other mineral resources mining regions in developed andExpand
Community responses of intertidal soft-bottom macrozoobenthos to oil pollution in a tropical mangrove ecosystem, Niger Delta, Nigeria.
Preliminary impact assessment of two large oil spill incidents at Bodo Creek, in the Niger Delta, was undertaken, focusing on intertidal macrozoobenthos. Post-spill number of species and abundanceExpand
Conflicts – Oil Exploration and Water
Water resources and water quality are closely related to oil exploration, refining and distribution. Since oil products provide over 90% of transport energy in almost all countries it is apparentExpand
