Sorowako is located in the center of Sulawesi island in Indonesia. It was once rich in plant species, many of which were not found elsewhere. But the town became the world’s largest nickel mine, with one company mining 5% of the world’s nickel supply. Most of the plants have been cut down for mining. In 2004, aiyen tjoa, a soil biologist and lecturer at the University of tadulako, came to sorowako and found that only barren soil and dusty roads were left. < / P > < p > but a small number of shrubs and small trees survived. Tjoa wanted to know how they adapted to a nickel rich environment, guessing that the plants could absorb nickel from the environment and store it. These plants, which are rich in nickel, may be an alternative source of nickel ore and can be mined without destroying the environment. Dozens of nickel loving plants have been found in many parts of the world, but this kind of plants are rarely found in Indonesia. Indonesia is one of the regions with the richest plant diversity in the world. There are also the largest mines in the world. Nickel loving plants should be found. Tjoa thinks it’s just because no one is looking for it. She began a long search. So far, she has discovered a variety of native Indonesian plants that are fond of nickel.
