Amphibian Chemical Concentration

Decent Essays
CHEMICAL CONTAMINATION Chemical concentration in amphibian habitats is caused mainly by factory waste, agricultural waste, nitrogenous waste, pesticides and acidification. These chemicals have major effects in the physiological being of the amphibians which results in declining the amphibian population. These above mentioned factors may result in slow growth rate, lethal effect, weak immune system and abnormal behaviours. When chemicals are contaminated in the natural habitats of the amphibians, they experience physiological abnormalities which eventually lead to death. The abnormalities occur mostly in the nervous, circulatory, integumentary, skeletal and reproductive system. Nitrogenous fertilizers and low pH water causes declination of
