Heavy Metal Polluted Soils: Effect on Plants and

Soils polluted with heavy metals have become common across the globe due to increase in geologic and anthropogenic activities. Plants growing on these soils show a reduction in growth, performance, and yield. Bioremediation is an effective method of treating heavy metal polluted soils. It is a widely accepted method that is mostly carried out in situ hence it is suitable for the establishment

Heavy metal is a general collective term which applies to the group of metals and metalloids with an atomic density greater than 4 g/cm³. Although it is a loosely defined term (Duffus, 2002), it is widely recognised and usually applies to the widespread contaminants of terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems.

Heavy metal refers to any metallic chemical element that has a high density and is toxic or poisonous at low concentrations. Coal contains many heavy metals, as it is created through compressed organic matter containing virtually every element in the periodic table mainly carbon, but also heavy metals.
