Visakhapatnam is a fast growing city with a rich diversity of flora and fauna. In the recent years, the avifauna of Visakhapatnam has faced intensive number of increasing threats due to various anthropogenic activities out of which heavy metal contamination is one. The present study was carried out to determine the concentration of heavy metals Pb,...

The occurrence of heavy metals into the environment through various natural and anthropogenic sources is inevitable due to their persistent nature. This study investigated the concentration of heavy metals lead (Pb), zinc (Zn) and chromium (Cr) in liver, kidney, muscle and bones of three different species of owls namely Indian Eagle Owl (Bubo benga...

The objective of this study was to enumerate a checklist of birds of the Mudasarlova Reservoir, which is man-made reservoir situated in the district of Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India. It is used as a storage reservoir for drinking water and commercial purposes by the urban community. This area has always been blessed with diversity of flora,...

In the contemporary world, the menace of plastic pollution dovetailed with the current pandemic scenario is a globally rising concern which is affecting every life form on Earth. Plastics hold several properties like ductility that permit the material to be casted and given numerous shapes and forms for various commercial uses. When summed up, it h...

Background: Nephrotic syndrome (NS) is not a disease but needs to be treated. This case study discusses the successful treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome (NS) using techniques of Yoga Prana Vidya (YPV) as complementary medicine. This paper further explores the patient traits of self-management and control needed to sustain the improvements through cha...

Anthropogenic activities are the cause for occurrence of heavy metals into Environment. To detect environmental contamination, birds can be chosen as bioindicators due to abundance, feeding habits in different tropic levels and long lifespan. House Crows gets exposed to various heavy metals during their foraging activities. Heavy metals concentrati...

Worldwide increase in consumption of fishes as food has immense therapeutic and nutritional benefits. Heavy metal contamination of marine water ecosystem occurring due to urban and industrial waste discharge, agricultural runoff and accidental spills of toxic chemicals is globally a rising concern and possesses a huge threat for human health due to...
Conference Paper
The worldwide consumption of fishes has simultaneously increased since the last few decades as it holds immense therapeutic and nutritional benefits. Fishes usually acts as a good source of protein, high content of two omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and other. Metal contamination of freshwa...

Heavy metals are omnipresent in scare quantities and persistent in nature. Heavy metal pollution in sea water due to industrial discharges, atmospheric depositions of pollutants and occasional accidental spills of toxic chemicals (Ikem and Egiebor, 2005; Ahmed et al., 2014) is a threat for human health and predators. The heavy metals are of bio acc...

As birds can selectively act as an excellent bioindicator for determining the burden of heavy metals in the environment hence House Crow (Corvus splendens) of Visakhapatnam was selected in order to investigate the levels of the heavy metals namely Manganese (Mn), Nickel (Ni), Cobalt (Co) and Copper (Cu) in several tissues (liver, kidney, breast tis...

Questions

Question
Recently, Research Gate showed me that I have received 3-4 new citations whereas Google Scholar didn't how those up. And again in Google Scholar, it showed that I have received 1 new citation which is not showing in Research Gate. Perhaps the actual and total number of citations doesn't show properly anywhere and there's always an ambiguity present. Hence, it would be great if anybody could explain me, why this happens.

Heavy metals are omnipresent in scare quantities and persistent in nature. Heavy metal pollution in sea water due to industrial discharges, atmospheric depositions of pollutants and occasional accidental spills of toxic chemicals (Ikem and Egiebor, 2005; Ahmed et al., 2014) is a threat for human health and predators. The heavy metals are of bio accumulative origin and also lay a pathway of entering other life forms like humans and birds due to their dependency upon daily feeding habits. Studies on bioaccumulation of pollutants in fishes and birds can act as excellent bioindicators to determine the extent of contamination occurring at any level in the food chain and their adverse impacts on living forms. The aim of this study was to identify heavy metals namely Cr, Ni, Co and Cu in three selected edible fishes Indian Mackerel (Rastrelliger kanagurta), Scad (Alepes mate) and Pink Perch (Nemipterus japonicas) and in the Common Crow (Corvus splendens) in the vicinity of Visakhapatnam coast.
