Activities of soil phosphatases are suggested to be governed by plant species and other factors such as pH and heavy metal contents. Soil phosphatases were studied in the root-zones of some tropical weeds contaminated with Pb and treated with lime. Weeds were grown in 200 g potted soil samples for 4 weeks in a glass house. The results showed that the soil was dominated by acid phosphatase. The activities of acid and alkaline phosphatases in the root zones of alang-alang were higher than those in the root-zones of green kyllinga, pigweed, and amaranth, while those in the root-zone of pigweed were the lowest. Lime at 4 ton CaCO3 ha-1 significantly decreased the activity of acid phosphatase and increased the activity of alkaline phosphatase. The effect of Pb at 20 mg kg-1 was not observed.
