Seasonal variation of copper and potassium in diverse sea weeds at selected location of Kollam Sea coast
Hashim KA,  Prof Padmakumar,  Capt.Dr.Santhosh.S
Elevated metal concentrations are lethal for animals and plants. Algae and sea plants accumulate extremely high levels of metals in chronically contaminated areas. Trace metals cannot be eliminated from water bodies as they are accumulated in sediments and are slowly released in the water column by currents creating serious risks of contamination for sea organisms. The knowledge of trace metals levels in marine algae is a basic requirement for their use as biological indicators of metal pollution. The present was conducted to assess the level of metals such as potassium and copper found in the different species of seaweeds collected from the coastal areas of Kollam District of Kerala. The results showed a variation in the metal uptake by different species during different seasons.
