They stated thatwhen  heavy metals increase in theirspecific amount then they effect on plant growth and their development,andresults into soil contamination.while some plants grow only in highlycontaminated soil like chenopodium botrys.so individualy amount of metals canbe measured in formation of plants their development and structure.However theyalso stated that some plant species can easily tolerate the heavy amount oftoxic compounds.they recorded the data that describes the effect of heavymetals on the plant developmental parts like anther and pollen in chenopodiumbotrys.

these contains Cu,Fe,Zn,      Comparison ofconcentrations of metals in soils collected from minning site as a Pollutedarea and out of  the Mine as a non-pollutedArea. Heavy metal Non-polluted site Polluted site Fe 2,078±25.1 33,890±1,565.1 Mn 32±9.8 385.

7±1.5 119±31.5     Sher et al.

,(2011) carried out Ethnobotanicalstudies of some plants of Chargharzai valley,Distrit Buner,Pakistan. They stated that 206plant species contain ethnobotanical information.Native people use these plantsfor their daily purpose.

In species of herbs ,24 trees and 39 shrubs and 7climbers are present Parveen et al.,(2012)carried out pollen flora of Pakistan-LXX:Chenopodiaceae.They stated about  pollen morphology in Pakistan which is representing  by 13genera and 40 spieces of family chenopodiaceae.whichis a stenopalynous  family.This family isdivided  into 4 pollen types.

1.Arthrocnemun indicum-type.2.

Atriplex stocksii-type.3.Chenopodium album-type.

4.Haloxylon persicum-type.This family is helpfulfor generic level.

These plants are found in Xerophytic and Saline habitats. Nishanthini et al.,(2012)carried out totalphenolic,flavonoid contents and in vitro antioxidant activity of leaf of Suaedamonoica forssk ex.Gmel (chenopodiaceae).  They stated about antioxidant activity whichis performed by benzene,ethyl acetate,ether and extracts of the leaf ofmangrove herb (suaeda monoica).

.theseantioxidant perform useful process.e.g suaeda monoica leaf can be used for thetreatment of mediated ailments.and some extracts showed scavengingactivity.

.Moreover they posses higher DPPH and hydroxal radical activity,andABTS radical cation scavenging activity..Flavonoids can beestimated..and this mixture absorb various substances in different quantities.Sampson etal.

,(2012)carried out Genetic diversity and multiple origins of polyploidyAtriplex nummularia lindle(chenopodiaceae).They stated that insouth-western Australia which is a coastal semi-arid area ,the dioeciousspecies(Atriplex nummularia) is derived from octoploid ancestor..and thenspread in east and in different areas .Genetic diversity present betweenspecies  ,in ecological importance ofA.nummularia no description between species is identified.two comm. onsubspecies of A.

nummularia is used to find the diversity and taxonomicrelationships between Bayesian and phonetic analyses..overall in whole worldgenetic diversity is high i.e A=509,H=2.8 But some western species are lowerI.e A.nummularia ssp.spathulata.

while in perennial species genetic diversityare present within subspecies F=0.048..This is very informativefor the taxonomic separation of  twosubspecies.     Chikhi et al(2014)carriedout Antidiabetic activity of aqueous leaf extract of Atriplex halimusL.(chenopodiaceae)in streptozotocin – induced diabetic rats.

They stated that extractof atriplex halimus containsantidiabetic effect and known as medicinal plant.first time this experimentwere performed on mice and tested the mice tolerance.this extract is used tocalculate the total phenolic contents.then they obtained result that proteinlevel increased when treated with extract.
