In this study, we were interested in assessing the impact of leachate leaves three plant species (Acer monspessulanum, Populus nigra, Salix babylonica) taken near petrochemical complex (Skikda N-E. Algeria) on Helix aspersa. The first results show that treatment with leachates plant leaf exposed to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon emissions by petrochemical complex cause a dose-dependent inhibition of the growth of the shell Helix aspersa (weight and diameter). On the metabolic level, leachates cause a significant increase in protein at hepatopancreas and kidney and significant increase in Catalase activity and Glutathione, glutathione S-transferase.
