Universiti Pertanian Malaysia was established in 1971 as a result of the merger between the College of Agriculture, Malaya and the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Malaya. The Library of the College of Agriculture, Malaya thus became the Universiti Pertanian Malaysia Library. When the university was named as Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) in 1997, the Library became the Universiti Putra Malaysia Library. As of 23rd May 2002, the Library has been named as Perpustakaan Sultan Abdul Samad (PSAS), Universiti Putra Malaysia, after the late gre [...]

This study was conducted with the aim of finding soil factors which influence heavy metals uptake by medicinal plants. The heavy metal concentrations in medicinal plants at 3 different sites (different soil types) and the soils on which the plants grow were analysed.From the correlation analysis, soil properties affect all of the heavy metal concentrations in soils, meanwhile, only Cu and Se concentrations in soils affect their uptake by plants.However, this depends on plant parts (root and foliar), and the soil types. Principal component analysis (PCA) was also conducted to ascertain any patterns in the soil samples in relation to soil chemical characteristics and reinforce the findings from the correlation analysis. From the principal component analysis in this study, total Pb and As concentrations in medicinal plants were correlated with their concentrations in soils; however, they varyaccording to the soil types
