Heavy metal pollution has received increasing attention in recent years mainly because of the public awareness of environmental issues. In this study we have evaluated the effect of cadmium (Cd) on enzymes activity, substrate utilization pattern and diversity of microbial communities in soil spiked with 0, 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100 mg/kg Cd, during 60 d of incubation at 25 degrees C. Enzyme activities determined at 0, 15, 30, 45, and 60 d after heavy metal application (DAA) showed marked declines… Expand
