The toxicity of the trace metals Cd, Cu, and Pb alone and in combination was assessed by measuring the activity of the soil enzymes dehydrogenase and urease. We assayed the enzymatic response of a forest soil exposed to single metals and metal mixtures in a factorial design. The chemical speciation of the metals was measured in 0.01M KNO3 solution extracts using an ion-selective electrode for Cu2+ and estimated from voltammetric determinations of labile metals for Cd2+ and Pb2+. The toxicity… CONTINUE READING
