Ten profiles from a hydromorphic soil ecosystem under a potential risk of heavy metals pollution from surrounding intense agricultural and industrial activities, were analyzed for the distribution of six heavy metals in different forms. Comparison of total content of heavy metals to the average earth's crust content confirmed the heavy metal contamination of the area. Evaluation of the metal bioavailable forms obtained with different extractants of varying strength showed that Cd and Zn were the most mobile metals in the profile and that Cu, Cd, and Zn were the most susceptible to plant uptake.

Abstract

Ten profiles from a hydromorphic soil ecosystem under a potential risk of heavy metals pollution from surrounding intense agricultural and industrial activities, were analyzed for the distribution of six heavy metals in different forms. Comparison of total content of heavy metals to the average earth's crust content confirmed the heavy metal contamination of the area. Evaluation of the metal bioavailable forms obtained with different extractants of varying strength showed that Cd and Zn were the most mobile metals in the profile and that Cu, Cd, and Zn were the most susceptible to plant uptake.
