AbstractThis review assesses metal speciation in soils, including analytical techniques used for measurement and the advantages and disadvantages of using chemical speciation information, in both the solid and aqueous phase, to predict adverse effects of metal contamination in soils and for use in soil protection policies. Other techniques used to assess metal lability and bioavailability in soil are also discussed.
