Effect of dissolved humic acid on the Pb bioavailability in soil solution and its consequence on ecological risk.

Current risk characterization in ecological risk assessment does not consider bioavailability of heavy metals, which highly depends on physicochemical properties of environmental media. This study was set to investigate the effect of humic acid (HA), used as a surrogate of organic matter, on Pb toxicity and the subsequent effect on risk characterization in… CONTINUE READING
