The scope of this study is to investigate the effects of the atmospheric emissions of heavy metals in soil and plants collected from an industrial area. In this connection the environmental pollution of the bioindicators (soil and plant) have been analysed by SEM-EDS method by estimating the heavy metals like Na, Mg, Al, Si, Cl, K, Ca, Mn, Fe, Cr, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, As, Se, Pb and Cd. From this analysis, a perceptible variation in the trace element concentration in different seasons of samples are found.
