For the better network accessibility, number of mobile towers is hiking. With more number of towers in residential areas, questions on whether it is safe or not are also rising, making the subject highly debated.
Radiation from mobile towers affect birds: MoEF study Radiation from mobile towers affect birds: MoEF study Studies have shown a drop in the numbers of common house sparrows in Nagpur, Bhopal, Jabalpur, Ujjain and other cities due to an increase in use of mobile phones.
TNN Oct 25, Ever wondered where the house sparrows have vanished? Blame it on electromagnetic radiation EMR from mobile communication towers.
The panel suggested recognizing EMR as a pollutant because of their possible effect on animals and birds. The waves decreased egg production in the bees.
Studies have shown a drop in the numbers of common house sparrows in Nagpur, Bhopal, Jabalpur, Ujjain and other cities due to an increase in use of mobile phones.
The committee recommended regular auditing of EMR levels and creating awareness regarding such a pollution. Such a rise will multiply mobile towers which dot the country in a haphazard way," the committee headed by Asad Rahmani, director, Bombay Natural History Society, has said.
Environmentalists have been long maintaining a stand against such towers.
The MoEF set up an expert committee, comprising Rahmani, Sainuddin Pattazhy, Prakriti Srivastava and others, to study possible impact of communication towers on wildlife including birds and bees. The panel found that EMR being a newly recognized pollutant, not much research is available on the subject, making it difficult to do comparative studies.
Most studies are on EMR affects on humans. Some studies have shown long-term impacts on health and environment reporting negative consequences on immunity, health, reproductive success, behaviour, communication and coordination in animals and birds.
Radiations affect all kinds of birds. They affect sparrows in the cities and obstruct migratory birds in their flight. It was found that all the 50 embryos were damaged. Nature lover Shrikant Deshpande says, "Guidelines for installation of mobile towers are not followed.
Mobile companies increase tower frequencies to avoid putting up more towers which in turn adversely affect birds.
However, Dr Ajay Poharkar, raptor scientist, claimed to have spotted successful hatchings of little spotted dove in the nest perched on one such mobile tower. Studies say EMRs have adverse impact on bees sparking an unusual phenomenon called colony collapse disorder.
Observations also show that number of bats near mobile towers has gone down due to radiation affect. After reviewing all the data available on the subject, the committee made some recommendations with a view to combat this problem which includes recognizing EMFs as a pollutant.
A panel also suggested framing of a law to protect urban flora and fauna from threats like EMR. From around the web.This is what a successful digital transformation looks like, based on research into the characteristics of enterprises that have succeeded with transformations in real life.
Of the studies, a staggering showed the negative impact of mobile towers on birds, bees, humans, wildlife and plants. The experts even cited an international study that pinpointed cellphone towers as a potential cause in the decline of animal populations.
INTRODUCTION Several billion birds from over species breed each year in Canada (Blancher ), in a wide variety of habitats. Landbirds, i.e., songbirds, raptors, upland gamebirds, represent most of the birds in Canada and tend to have large and widespread populations.

1. Introduction. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are organic compounds that are mostly colorless, white, or pale yellow solids. They are a ubiquitous group of several hundred chemically related compounds, environmentally persistent with various structures and varied toxicity.
