Abstract:
We analyzed the concentrations of heavy metals (Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Co, Pb and Ni) in a dominant seaweed species (Enteromorpha intestinalis) collected from the islands of Indian Sundarbans deltaic complex during 2013-14 using AAS. The order of accumulation of heavy metals is Fe > Mn > Zn > Cu > Co > Pb > Ni. The bioaccumulation of heavy metals in E. intestinalis exhibited pronounced spatial variation, which may be attributed to type and degree of anthropogenic stress operating in and around the sampling stations.
Keywords: Seaweed, heavy metals, Indian Sundarbans, AAS
