  The mineral and proximate compositions were analyzed in wet and dry samples of Mangifera indica and Persea americana seeds using standard methods of analyses. These determinations were determined on dry extract basis. The results revealed: ash 9.05-9.68%, crude protein 5.65-6.63%, crude fat 5.68-8.28%, crude fibre 5.31-6.75%, carbohydrate 63.26-64.25% and energy 334.64-350.04 Kcal in dry samples while wet sample produced, ash 7.20-11.28%, crude protein 4.35-10.65%, crude fat 4.21-6.42%, crude fibre 4.38-8.30%, carbohydrate 33.92-40.15 and energy 216.17-255.78%. As expected moisture content was high in the wet than dry sample. The mean values showed that Mangifera indica seed was higher in moisture, crude protein and crude fibre while ash, crude fat, carbohydrate and energy were higher in Persea americana seeds. Mineral contents showed that Zn, Cu, Pb, Ca and Mg were more concentrated in the wet sample than in the dry sample of Mangifera indica, while in Persea amercana, Zn, Fe, Mn, Pb, Ca and Mg were better concentrated in the wet sample. However, Cd, Cr and Al were not detected in both seed samples. The results are compared to those of other common seeds and it is hoped that it would add to the existing nutritional data on fruits and seeds.

  This study is part of an investigation into the possible environmental contamination resulting from the traffic congestion in Nigeria. The aim of this study was to quantify the levels of some heavy metals in goats urine samples. Samples were collected from different location (Expressway, Araromi way, Federal College of Agriculture, Akure Campus and Irun Akoko), wet digested and analyzed with atomic absorption spectrophotometer. The mean Pb level (3.8 mg L-1 ) of Araromi way was higher than those recorded for other locations. Pb/Zn ratio of Araromi way and expressway was higher than the others. Young goats were found to have higher levels of metals than the mature ones. It then denotes that these areas are polluted by the high traffic congestion. Although analytical results revealed that the metals were below safety limits, however, it is suggested that the areas be regularly monitored to avoid traffic pollution.
