Abstract: Over the last three decades, much research interest has been focused on phytoextraction as a sustainable, non-intrusive and low-cost alternative to ameliorate contaminated sites. Although some investigations on phytoextraction have been carried out in different regions around the globe, there has not been any investigation carried out in Pacific Island Countries (PICs). Thus, the current investigation was established to first, evaluate the concentrations of heavy metals in soil samples around industrial areas of Suva, the capital of Fiji and secondly, to explore the effect of three biodegradable chelating alternatives.
