Abstract
Heavy metals presence in the environment is of great ecological significance due to their toxicity at certain concentrations, translocation and nonbiodegradability which is responsible for their accumulation in the biosphere. Pb and Cd concentration of soil and reed plant of Busia and Lugari regions of Western Kenya was investigated with an aim of establishing the level of accumulation of the Cd and Pb metals.The level of Cd was generally high in soil samples compared to Pb. The uptake of Pb by reeds within this region is comparable, with TF of 1.4 and 0.205 for Cyperus papyrus and Typha latifolia reeds respectively.
