Since the Industrial Revolution, human activities have resulted into the eventual release of huge amounts of chemicals (organic/inorganic) into the tropical environment, either deliberately for agricultural and industrial purposes, or accidentally through the mishandling of chemicals. The release of heavy metals into the terrestrial ecosystem is a major problem. The tropical ecosystem is the largest in the world, and has a high population density. Soil acidity is a major problem in this ecosystem, and this soil acidity means that metals can be easily mobilized, causing a serious risk to the terrestrial environment. Heavy metals in soil pose a serious ecological risk as these metals cannot be degraded or permanently removed from the land. The development of methods for the in situ remediation of heavy metal contaminated soils is needed to make such soils acceptable for agriculture.
