Heavy metal contents in agricultural soils and their relationships with soil microbiological characteristics were studied which were with polluted heavy metals. Most investigations about influence of heavy metals on the development and activity of soil microorganisms have focused on effects where loss of microbial function can be observed and yet such studies may mask underlying effects on biodiversity within microbial populations and communities.in this reviewThesensitivity of differentmeasurements of heavy metals is discussed, and data compiled to compare relativetoxicity of different metals.
