dc.description.abstract Elemental concentrations in the plant organs of Pterocarpus santalinoides, "waterside groundnut", and its supporting soils obtained from Krobo-jejeti in the Eastern Region of Ghana were investigated. The result showed a high concentration of Fe among the screened elements studied. The high levels of iron (Fe) in the plant organs may probably make it a very powerful tonic to boost anaemic conditions. Toxic/trace elements like Cu, Ce, Co, Cr, K, Mg, Mn, Mo, Se, Sn, Th, V and Zn were recorded, their concentrations were far below the World's Permissible Levels, thus, making the plant species, P. santalinoides safe for the production of herbal medicines for human consumption. ?
