All other elements are present only in trace amounts. Ore deposits (soil or rock that contains minerals in such quantity to make it economically viable to extract them) can lead to very high concentrations of elements in localized areas; for example the lead (galena, PbS) and bauxite deposits in Jamaica, the gold mines of Guyana, and manganese nodules on the ocean floors.
If plants and animals are deficient in any of these elements then their growth will, in some way, be impaired. The toxic elements of particular concern include Cd, Hg, As, and Pb.
