Abstract:
The present study deals to determine the heavy metal accumulation potential of three naturally grown plants viz. Metals Fe, Pb, Zn, Cu, and Cr have been detected in soil and plants species of contaminated (Site-Yash paper mill) and non contaminated (near by 20 km of the site) area, 3 naturally grown plant species have been taken for the study. It is revealed that Argemone Mexicana, Calotropis procera and Cannabis sativa growing naturally in the field at Faizabad, U.P. in effluent contaminated area. We suggest the plantation of these plants species in contaminated field because heterogeneous accumulation of metals was found in these plants species at contaminated and uncontaminated area. Higher accumulation of metals was found in the plants leaves which is naturally growing. Elevated accumulation of metals in species Argemone Mexicana, Calotropis Procera, and Cannabis sativa sp. growing along the effluent channel has been identified as a potential source of bio-monitoring of metals particularly for Fe, Pb,Cu, Zn and Cr are as well as utilised for the removal of heavy metal from contaminated soil.
