Aleppo Pine Bark as a Biomonitor of Atmospheric Pollution in the Arid Environment of Jordan
Monitoring of atmospheric pollution using Aleppo bark as a bioindicator was carried out in the industrial area surrounding the Al-Hussein thermal power station and the oil refinery at Al-Hashimyeh
Assessment of metal air pollution by epiphytic lichens: the incidence of crustal materials and of the possible uptake from substrate barks
The amounts of Al, Cu, Fe, Mn, and Zn in the epiphytic lichenParmelia sulcata Tayl. and in surf ace soils of Mt. Amiata (centrai ltaly) were measured. Using Al as a reference element, the data were
Assessment of Heavy Metals Concentration in the Soil and Crops Grown around Dumpsites
Quick Response Code Abstract: This study assessed the levels of heavy metals (Mn, Cr, Pb, Cd, and Fe) in two dumpsites and control in Surakarta. Specific soil properties and the level of metals in
Deposition of airborne elements from Sembule steel mill surveyed by moss analysis
The local contamination of airborne elements caused by the Sembule steel works was studied by the analysis of Mg, Ca, Fe, Ni, Pb and Cd accumulated in transplanted moss. The concentrations of heavy
Heavy metal phytoremediation by Commelina benghalensis (L) and Cynodon dactylon (L) growing in Urban stream sediments
Urbanisation and industrialization lead to heavy metal pollution in the Nakivubo drainage ecosystem. The objectives of this study were to determine heavy metal concentrations and distribution in
Distribution of copper smelter emissions in Southeastern Arizona — Using honey mesquite as a bioindicator
Honey mesquite (Prosopis juliflora), a representative species of the Sonoran Desert ecosystem, was studied as a possible bioindicator for industrial smelter pollution. Samples from soils, leaves and
Bio-monitoring studies on the effect of lead in date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) in the arid ecosystem of Kuwait
Lead levels were determined in the unwashed and washed leaves, bark and fruit of dates and in soil from 12 locations in Kuwait's arid environment and the Pb level in surface soil was found to be the highest amongst the other samples.
Application of algae in biomonitoring and phytoextraction of heavy metals contamination in urban stream water
Biological technologies for wastewater remediation techniques employed to remove contaminants in urban stream water are increasingly receiving attention worldwide. The purpose of this study was


A study of heavy metal contamination in the Rhondda Fawr, South Wales
Analysis of vegetation and soils of the Rhondda Fawr, South Wales, shows that there is contamination by the heavy metals Pb, Cd, Cu and Ni throughout the valley, in particular within the urban
Mosses as bioindicators of heavy metal pollution in polish national parks
The concentrations of heavy metals (Cd, Co, Cr, Ni, Cu, Ph, Zn, Mn, Fe) and other elements (Mg, Na, K, Ca) were determined in the samples of Pleurozium schreberi and Hylocomium splendens from 12
Heavy-metal pollution from automotive emissions and its effect on roadside soils and pasture species in New Zealand
Concentrations of cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, nickel, and zinc were determined by atomic absorption spectrophotometry in soils and pasture species along a major motorway in New Zealand. Enhanced
The lead, copper and zinc content of tree rings and bark. A measurement of local metallic pollution.
Lead in soils and plants: its relation to traffic volume and proximity to highways
Soils and plants sampled along heavily traveled highways show that lead contents tend to increase with traffic volume and decrease with distance from the highway. Much of the lead was present as a
Lead uptake by bromegrass from contaminated soils
This study was designed to determine whether concentrations of lead toxic to animals could be absorbed into the foliage of a widely-used grass species growing in contaminated soils from specified sources under the conditions available.
