After the use by a wide range of activities and applications, and/or after making available by accidental sources, the trace metal elements remain as a major contaminant in the main environmental compartments including soils. Very com- plex systems were evolved by plants which offered a control of the adsorbed and the accumulated metals. Researches have been directed to upgrade the understanding of the plant tolerance process with high arsenic (As) accumulation outside consider-able metabolic deterioration. The review of the research results presented here may be helpful to figure out the detoxification mechanisms that point out tolerance in Arthrocnemum indicum.
