Elevated levels of Al in soil solution may be toxic to plants. The activity of monomeric inorganic Al species is the best measure of the phytotoxic fraction. Decreasing soil pH increases soil solution Al exponentially as the pH falls below 4.5. In the presence of organic matter and organic acids the availability of A1 is reduced, due to complexation. The Al concentration is also dependent on dominant clay mineral and clay content. Symptoms of Al toxicity usually first appear in the roots… 
Prevention of aluminium toxicity with supplemental boron. I. Maintenance of root elongation and cellular structure
TLDR
The authors' results establish that B protects against Al inhibition of root growth and development and the effect of adding additional B to a high-Al soil was also investigated.
Growth and nutrient uptake of tea under different aluminium concentrations
TLDR
The results of the present study support the view that Al plays a nutritive role for C. sinensis and the rhizostimulatory effects of Al have been explained as a consequence of enhanced nutrient uptake.
Reversibility of damages to forest floor plants by episodes of elevated hydrogen- and aluminium-ion concentrations in the soil solution
Herbs and grasses may episodically be exposed to elevated concentrations of potentially toxic elements as H+ and Al3+ due to considerable temporal variability in the chemical composition of soil
Adaptive Mechanisms Make Lupin a Choice Crop for Acidic Soils Affected by Aluminum Toxicity
Almost half of the world’s agricultural soils are acidic, and most of them present significant levels of aluminum (Al) contamination, with Al3+ as the prevailing phytotoxic species. Lupin is a
Effects of aluminium and pH on growth and potassium uptake by three ectomycorrhizal fungi in liquid culture
TLDR
Effects of low pH and high Al concentrations were investigated on both growth and K+ uptake by three Douglas-fir ectomycorrhizal fungi in solution culture, finding that Lactarius rufus and Lactaria hepaticus appeared to be tolerant to low pH but sensitive to Al, while laccaria bicolor exhibited high Al tolerance and high sensitivity to acidification.
Aluminium and Phosphate Uptake by Phragmites australis: the Role of Fe, Mn and Al Root Plaques
Aluminium, a potentially phytotoxic metal, is an important constituent of many mine water discharges but has largely been neglected in the literature. The behaviour of this element in the rhizosphere
Aluminium and phosphate uptake by Phragmites australis: the role of Fe, Mn and Al root plaques.
TLDR
Aluminium was not adsorbed onto the surface of either plaque type but formed a separate phosphate deposit closely resembling the Fe and Mn plaques, which did not significantly reduce the concentration of P in aerial plant tissues that was sufficient to ensure adequate growth.
Tree fine root Ca/Al molar ratio – Indicator of Al and acidity stress
Abstract High soil acidity and elevated soil Al concentrations limit plant growth in many terrestrial ecosystems. Aluminium toxicity can be ameliorated by Ca. Thus, Ca/Al molar ratios in soil
ALUMINUM EFFECTS ON GROWTH, PHOTOSYNTHESIS, AND MINERAL NUTRITION OF CACAO GENOTYPES
A solution culture experiment was conducted in a greenhouse with two cacao genotypes (Catongo and Theobahia). Plants were subjected to seven aluminum (Al) concentrations and Al effects on growth,

Soil acidity and growth of a legume. III. Interaction of lime and phosphate on growth of Medicgo sativa L. in relation to aluminium toxicity and phosphate fixation
TLDR
Plant symptoms, and analyses of plants, soil solutions, and 0.01M calcium chloride extracts, supported the hypothesis that, in the unlimed soils, additions of phosphate overcame aluminium toxicity as well as phosphorus deficiency.
Relative toxicities of inorganic aluminum complexes to barley
The inorganic forms of Al in the soil solution that decrease plant growth in acid soils have not been clearly identified. Therefore, we examined the effects of Al and its complexes with F and SOI' on
Toxic Factors in Acid Soils: I. Characterization of Aluminum Toxicity in Cotton1
Aluminum toxicity is one of the limiting factors in acid soils. Increased yields of cotton and uptake of P were obtained by liming a Bladen soil. The same results were obtained in Al-containing
Effect of pH on Ionic Species of Aluminum in Medium and on Aluminum Toxicity Under Solution Culture
In a medium with a lower pH, upward translocation of Al to shoots increased, whereas Al absorption by roots decreased. Al content of excised roots considerably oversaturated root CEC at pH 4.5–5.0.

More total and water-soluble calcium was found in so-called tolerant than non-tolerant plants, and an increase in the calcium concen...

Soil acidity and growth of a legume. II. Reactions of aluminium and phosphate in solution and effects of alumminium, phosphate, calcium, and pH on Medicago sativa L. and Trifolium subterraneum, in solution culture
TLDR
Adding ethylenediaminetetra-acetate to solutions containing 200 µM aluminium concentrations improved the growth of both species to the extent that concentrations of free aluminium were reduced by chelation.
Aluminium Tolerance in Species within the Genus Agrostis
TLDR
Investigations of the tolerance of four species of Agrostis to the toxic action of aluminium find that selection may operate in nature to produce populations of differing aluminium tolerance, but no examination has been made of possible differential tolerances within species.
Aluminum toxicity in corn at near neutral soil pH levels
Abstract Aluminum toxicity to plants is often responsible for yield reductions under acid soil conditions. Despite the fact that Al becomes insoluble in the slightly acid to neutral pH range, there
Effects of lime on the growth of five species, on aluminium toxicity, and on phosphorus availability
TLDR
The evidence, including that based on chemical analyses of extracted soil solutions and of lucerne plants, indicates that where adequate nitrogen had been applied, aluminium toxicity depressed the growth of Lucerne and phalaris on this acid soil.
