Soil Heavy Metals (Soil Biology, Volume 19) As just indicated, heavy metal tolerant fungi and bacteria often use an immobilization mechanism as their main defense against high concentrations of metals: the organisms bind the metals to the cell wall in order to immobilize them. Employing the remaining pre-adapted metallophyte flora seems.
