Earthworms are significant ecological receptor species that play a key role in the structure and function of soil ecosystems. They can absorb intact nanomaterials and excrete into the form of aggregates. Bio-distribution of nanoparticles into tissues and their accumulation plays a significant role in assessing ecological risk and toxicity. Present study shows that coelomic cells of earthworms can uptake nanoparticles ~ 22.0% at 48 hrs exposure of 35nm ZnO. The strategy of earthworms to accumulate nanoparticles and excrete them in agglutinated/aggregated forms may exploit to remediate nanoparticles from soil system at large scale.

Keywords: Nanoparticles,coelomic cells, earthworm,Eudichogaster prashadi.
