This study investigated the impact of soil pollution on the physical and chemical properties of soil, and faunal richness. Soil samples at depths 0-5 cm, 5-10 cm and 10-15 cm were collected from five polluted sites over a period of twelve months (covering the dry and rainy seasons) for analysis in the laboratory. The nature of pollution in each site differed, ranging from domestic sources to agricultural inputs and industrial wastes. Soil samples from a fallowed plot were also collected in a similar manner for comparison of results.
