Heavy metals are naturally occurring in the earth‘s crust but anthropogenic and industrial activities have led to drastic environmental pollutions in distinct areas. Plants are able to colonize such sites due to several mechanisms of heavy metal tolerance. Understanding of these pathways enables different fruitful approaches like phytoremediation and biofortification. Therefore, this review addresses mechanisms of heavy metal tolerance and toxicity in plants possessing a sophisticated network… CONTINUE READING
