What is it about?

Bioaccumulation of essential trace elements in the living systems is a common phenomenon. Although sufficient information is available on their accumulation in insects and higher animals, information on trace elements accumulation in bats is relatively scanty. Keeping this in the backdrop, the present study was carried out to assess Zn, Cu, Mn, and Fe in the tissues of four different organs of Megaderma lyra collected from Barak Valley, Assam (India). All the four essential elements from the tissues and organs like the kidney, liver, lungs, and patagium of M. lyra were analyzed using graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometer.
