Abstract

The differences of lead heavy metal accumulation in water, sediment and among seagrass of Thalassia hemprichii (roots, rhizomes and leaves) were conducted on Ambon Island, Maluku. Samples were taken from two areas ( Inner Ambon Bay and the southern part of the Ambon island) with a total of nine sampling sites based on seagrass distribution and land use. Pb was analyzed using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. Pb metal content in the sediment is higher than the water and correlated significantly with the roots. The content of Pb on seagrass T. hemprichii showed a consistent pattern of accumulation at all the sites, where the Pb content in roots is higher than in the leaves and it is higher in the leaves than in the rhizomes. Thus the roots of the seagrass T. hemprichii can be used as bioindicators as well as biomonitoring of heavy metal pollution in the marine waters.
