Özet

Excess growth of population and urbanization on global scale along with industrialization induce pollution of soils which seriously threatens human health and ecosystem by causing irreversible hazardous effects. Thus, reaction of pollutants (decomposition, accumulation, and mobility properties) should be monitored for mitigation or if possible preventing perilous effects on living organisms. Since pollutants and heavy metals such as persistent chlorinated organic compounds (xenobiotica) and mercury could cause mutagenous and teratogenous side effects, great care and effort should be paid to prevent the transportation of the said substances to soil for sustaining biodiversity. Hence, via the sustainable ecosystem/ agroecosystem concept, the status of the pollutants in soil should be monitored permanently.
