At the same time, human activities can have significant negative impacts on ecosystem health.
Thus, control of watershed pollution is both necessary and essential in order to reduce and systematically eliminate the detrimental consequences that are evident in marine and estuarine ecosystems.
The present study investigated the distribution of metals at the Guandu Watershed.
Five sampling sites were selected for the soil analysis.
Samples were collected from February 2013 to December 2014 and analysed for concentrations of As, Cd, Zn, Cu, Pb, Cr, Ni, and Co, using ICP.
For control, some samples were used in uncontaminated areas outside the direct effect of chemical industries.
