Abstract: 

Rodents are sensitive species to environmental pollutant in particular to heavy metals and considered to be proper monitors of heavy metals in the environment. This study was conducted to measure the accumulation of copper (Cu), zinc (Zn) and chrome (Cr) by wet digestion method and using an ICP-OES instrument in hair and liver of Persian Jird (Meriones persicus) in Darreh Zereshk copper mine, Yazd without considering the effects of surrounded mines. The results showed that the concentrations of heavy metals between hair and liver were statistically different (P<0.01). The order of heavy metal concentrations in studied tissues was as Zn>Cu>Cr. A significant difference was observed between heavy metals concentrations of studied tissues between males and females (P<0.01). The results of Pearson correlation showed that there were no significant differences between the accumulation of heavy metals in tissues (P>0.05), therefore regression equation cannot be established between them. Due to the lack of significant differences between hair and liver, hair cannot be easily applied as a proper bio indicator of heavy metals in the liver, and its application needs further investigation. Differences in the accumulation of heavy metals in liver and hair of different sexes of Persian Jird indicate that sex plays an important role in the accumulation of heavy metals in this species and must be noticed in forthcoming studies.
