Ecosystems in Fieri district provide resources and opportunities for the economic development offering natural resources such as sea and land, biodiversity such as forests, wetlands, etc. Flora is characterized by a long vegetation period, which may even exceed 10 months. This study shows the presence of high levels of hydrocarbon in soil, flora and fauna in Fieri oilfields area. Flora and fauna is continuously pressed by the presence of high concentrations of toxic substances in the soil. This is confirmed by the reduction of plants photosynthetic activity after 3-4 month of their exposure in contaminated environment.
