Effects of Alluminum soil content, on earthworm’s bioaccumulation on organic fields

The earthworm (Lumbricidae family) can be used in many ecotoxicological tests as a bio indicator and as a soil index in organic agriculture. Earthworms show the greatest rate of metals accumulation among all other species of terrestrial ecosystems. The main objective of our study was to study the accumulation of alluminum in the tissues of the earthworms from organic fields.

Earthworms have been collected from organic fields, in Central Greece and were separated into 4 groups and hatched for a period of 8 weeks in receptacles with soil substrate of various Al concentrations (0, 1000, 2000, 4000 mg kg -1 of soil) following randomized block experiment design. The measurement of Al concentration in their tissues was conducted via the method of individual absorption. According to the above results no change in the concentration of alluminum in the animal tissues is observed in relation with the alluminum concentration increase in the soil. A higher accumulation of alluminum in the tissues was observed only when the Al concentration in the soil was also the highest (4000mg kg-1).

Content of macroelements in Avena sativa L., Brassica napus var. oleifera and Lupinus luteus L. after contamination of soil by copper and zinc
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
The aim of the study was to determine the effect of copper and zinc contamination on macroelements content in plants. Research was located on two alkaline soils which in natural conditions were formed with loamy sand and sandy loam. The soil was contaminated with copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) at the following rates: 0, 150 and 450 mg/kg of soil.

Salinity and copper deficiency are two factors that inhibit plant growth. This study was conducted to investigate individual and combined effects of salinity and copper nutrition on growth, leaf relative water content and nutrient uptake of rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.).

The influence of soil – plant factors on the uptake of Cs by two plant species
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
To investigate Cs uptake by two different plant species grown on soils with contrasting physicochemical properties, a greenhouse pot experiment was conducted. Soil in each pot contaminated with 40 ug g-1 of Cs in the form of CsCl by spraying the solution in layers. After an equilibration period of two months, the soil of each pot appropriately sowed with seeds of Lolium perenne and Trifolium pratense plants.

A pot experiment was performed to study the single and sequential extraction of As, Cr and Cu in chromated copper arsenate (CCA) contaminated soil and the potential of maize (Zea mays) for the removal of the metals from the CCA contaminated soil.

Anreicherung von Plastikpartikeln in Auenböden

Rückstände von Plastik, welches heute aus dem Alltag nicht mehr wegzudenken ist, gelangen nicht nur in die Weltmeere, sondern auch in die Böden. Der „neue“ Schadstoff Mikroplastik ist dabei auch in Auenböden weit verbreitet und gefährdet zusätzlich die bedeutenden Funktionen von Auen und ihren Böden.
