      This book by Sam Luoma and Phil Rainbow uses their wealth of knowledge on all aspects of metal contamination in the aquatic environment to provide a very thorough understanding of the historical and present issues associated with regulating metal pollution. Environment pollution is a wide-reaching problem and it is likely to influence the health of human populations is great. This paper provides the insight view about the affects of environment pollution in the perspective of air pollution, water and land/ soil waste pollution on human by diseases and problems, animals and trees/ by:

[South Africa]}, author = {Watling, H R and Watling, R J}, abstractNote = {Donax serra and Bullia rhodostoma have been selected as possible indicators of metal pollution and the results of a survey of the metal concentrations in these two molluscs have been summarized. Journal of Aquatic Pollution and Toxicology (ISSN: X) is an international open access peer reviewed publication that aims to discuss current research on how aquatic and marine life is threatened due to increased man made toxicity and journal covers several key aspects in this field by including research on topics like toxic agents, aquatic environments, water protection.

    Wastewaters carry toxic heavy metals that get introduced into the soil and aquatic system through various processes, prominent among them being irrigation (Khan et al., ). Heavy metal pollution in the air increases through human activities. Smelting and burning .   The initial chapters focus on the fundamental principles and modelling approaches needed to understand metal concentration, speciation and fate in the aquatic environment, while the later chapters focus on specific environments, with case studies and research highlights.

The environment and its compartments have been severely polluted by heavy metals. This has compromised the ability of the environment to foster life and render its intrinsic values. Heavy metals are known to be naturally occurring compounds, but anthropogenic activities introduce them in large quantities in different environmental compartments.

This leads to the environment’s ability to Cited by: The presence of pollutants in aqueous solution, particularly from hazardous heavy metals and metalloids, is an important environmental and social problem.

As many of these elements are stable they. Thus there is urgent need to evaluate the extent of pollution created by the heavy metals and to monitor the agents responsible for aquatic pollution in Krishna river of Andhra Pradesh.

This table contains the most up to date criteria for aquatic life ambient water quality criteria.

Aquatic life criteria for toxic chemicals are the highest concentration of specific pollutants or parameters in water that are not expected to pose a significant risk to the majority of species in a given environment or a narrative description of the desired conditions of a water body being "free.

Heavy metals are natural constituents of the environment, but indiscriminate use for human purposes has altered their geochemical cycles and biochemical balance. This results in excess release of heavy metals such as cadmium, copper, lead, nickel, zinc etc.

into natural resources like the soil and aquatic environments. Prolonged exposure and higher accumulation of such heavy metals can have Cited by: The term "Heavy Metal" is somewhat imprecise, but includes most metals with an atomic number greater than twenty, but excludes alkali metals alkaline earths, lanthanum andactinides.
