Article
Toxic metals in river sediments may represent significant ecological concerns, although there has been limited research on the source-oriented ecological hazards of metals in sediments. Surface sediments from an industrial affected Rupsa River were utilized in this study to conduct a complete investigation of toxic metals with source-specific ecolo...
Article
The bioaccumulation of mercury (Hg) in aquatic ecosystem poses a potential health risk to human being and aquatic organism. Bioaccumulations by plankton represent a crucial process of Hg transfer from water to aquatic food chain. However, the current understanding of major factors affecting Hg accumulation by plankton is inadequate. In this study,...
Article
The water-food-energy (WFE) nexus is about balancing competing interests to secure the sustainability of services provided by interconnected sectors. Ignoring the interconnections could cause serious consequences. For example, eutrophication caused by overemphasizing on food production maximization could threaten water security. Worldwide eutrophic...

Minute quantities of trace metals have delirious effects in the human body causing acute and chronic toxicities. These trace metals have the ability to bind with enzymes and proteins causing an alteration in their activity, and, consequently, their damage. In this study, water samples were collected from five sites in Rupsa River (Bangladesh) durin...

Wildfire is closely associated with human society and having its effect on earth as well as on its environment for more than 350 million years. It is a very common phenomenon from the ancient period, has hazardous effects on both environment and human life. This study mainly focuses on the review of wildfire of Australia during 2019-2020 regarding...

Bioremediation is an innovative and promising technology available for the removal and recovery of heavy metals from contaminated media. Bioremediation uses organisms to absorb heavy metals at low cost and with no secondary pollution. Bioremediation by macrofungi that degrade pollutants or wastes is referred to as mycoremediation. Macrofungi, like...

This study was conducted to assess the concentrations of cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb) in soils of tobacco field and plants were collected in the edge of Sichuan Basin, China (Panzihua, Guangyuan, Luzhou and Yibin). Ecological risk of Cd and Pb in soil and human health risk from tobacco leaves were also assessed. The maximum Cd and Pb concentrations i...

Rice is the staple food of Bangladeshi people and is consumed at least twice a day. Thus, the presence of toxic metals in rice grains has become a major public health concern in Bangladesh. The present research was conducted to investigate the concentrations of toxic metals in rice grains and their possible human health risks in the Tangail distric...

Tangail district is more vulnerable to heavy metals contamination for industrialization in Bangladesh. Present study describe six heavy metals (Cr, Ni, Cu, As, Cd, and Pb) in fifteen several sampling locations in industrial vicinity of Tangail district were determined. The concentration of Cr, Ni, Cu, As, Cd, and Pb in studied areas soils were obse...
Article

This study was conducted to assess the potential ecological and human health risk of toxic metals in agricultural soils near the industrial areas of Bangladesh. In this study, six toxic metals (chromium, nickel, copper, arsenic, cadmium, and lead) were assessed in 58 soil samples of five different sampling sites around the industrial areas of Jhena...
Article

The study was conducted to isolate and identify the presence of Shiga toxin producing Escherichia coli (STEC) strains in water samples of the Old Brahmaputra River and Sewage water at Mymensingh Municipality. A total of 20 water samples were collected for this experi-ment. Samples were cultured on EMB agar, stained and PCR was done to detect the pa...

The study was conducted at the municipal area of Mymensingh Sadar upazilla during July to November 2017. Plastic bag (polythene bag) wastes pose serious environmental pollutions and health problems in humans and animals. The situation is deranged in underdeveloped countries like Bangladesh. The aim of this survey was to evaluate the using pattern o...

Abstract The study was conducted to investigate the physicochemical properties of the Old Brahmaputra River and Sewage water in Mymensingh Municipality. To perform the study fifty samples were collected from five different stations from the river and surrounding sewage discharge points. The samples were analyzed to determine pH, Electrical Conducti...
Article

The present study was conducted among the students of Bangladesh Agricultural University to investigate the responses of university students related to environmental issues. There were 300 participants from different educational level and they were randomly selected. The data were collected through personal interview by using a pre-tested structure...
Thesis
The study was conducted to investigate the physicochemical properties of the Old Brahmaputra River and Sewage water in Mymensingh Municipality and also to identify the presence of pathogenic STEC in water samples. To perform the study seventy samples were collected from five different stations from the river and surrounding sewage discharge points....

Project
Soil, foodstuff, sediment, and water continuously contaminated by toxic metals due to industrialization in Bangladesh. The aim of this project is to assess metal concentration, source identification and risk exposure in Soil, foodstuff, sediment, and water.
Project
Tobacco (Nicotina sp.) plants are known as commercially important since its leaves are widely used to produce cigarettes and Jorda (chewing substance with betel leaf). Metal pollution in tobacco soil may cause serious ecological and health risk. The aim of this project is to assess heavy metal concentrations in soil and tobacco plants to depict the present scenario of soil quality status including Cd and Pb concentrations and how to improve the situation for the safe production of tobacco products.
