Chromium is a toxic metal that are abundant and persistent environmental pollutants introduced into environment through man-made sources. Signs of Cr toxicity in plants include progressive stages of chlorosis and leaf death. Conventional methods employed for removal of hexavalent chromium is expensive and lack specificity. Biosorption is an emerging technology uses biomass to remove pollutants from environment. Biosorption by bacteria and fungi as an substitute treatment for wastewater containing heavy metals. Fungi can tolerate high concentration of potentially toxic metals and with other microbes; this maybe correlated with decreased intracellular uptake or impermeability.
