Overview

An authoritative, core reference book on soil contamination by heavy metals and metalloids

Pollution induced by heavy metals and metalloids in soils is a serious environmental problem because trace elements can contaminate the food chain. Physicochemical-biological interactions influence the transfer of trace elements from inorganic and organic soil constituents to the soil solution and to plants. This reference book provides a critical evaluation of the fundamentals of reactions and processes of these elements in soil environments, and:

  • Features chapters grouped under three broad topics: Fundamentals of Biotic and Abiotic Interactions of Metals and Metalloids with Soil Components; Transformations and Dynamics of Metals and Metalloids as Influenced by Soil-Root-Microbe Interactions; Speciation, Mobility, and Bioavailability of Metals and Metalloids and Restoration of Contaminated Soils
  • Covers state-of-the-art methodologies, including applicable advances in spectroscopy
  • Consolidates information that can further the development of innovative restoration strategies
  • Features contributions from a multidisciplinary group of esteemed soil and environmental scientists

This book is a comprehensive resource for environmental, agricultural, horticultural, and industrial researchers and scientists. It is also an excellent reference for regulators and practitioners in soil and environmental sciences and graduate students in related courses.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
?The book is a comprehensive resource for environmental, agricultural, horticultural, and industrial researchers and scientists. It is also an excellent reference for regulators and practitioners in soil and environmental sciences and graduate students in related courses.? (APADE, 2009)

"This book is an important contribution to the literature on soil contamination by metals and its remediation." (Journal of Hazardous Materials, April 2008)

"It can be a very useful guide to the PhD students and scientists interests in environmental science and engineering, soil chemistry, mineralogy, biochemistry and microbiology as well as plant nutrition and physiology in relation with soil and biophysico-chemical processes." (Environmental Engineering and Management Journal)
