Cytological effects of dyes manufacturing industry waste water on root meristematic cells of Allium cepa were investigated. The results obtained showed that the effluents induce various types of abnormalities such as chromosome breaks, C-mitosis, binucleate cells, tri- and terta-polar cells, nuclear cleavage, etc. It is concluded that waste waters of industrial origin not only upset the balance in aquatic ecosystem but also considerable genetic impact on plants.
