"This book from Springer leaves a thoroughly good first impression. Opening the hardcover the reader immediately finds clearly structured contents, lists of units and symbols, a periodic table of the elements and a glossary with abbreviations and acronyms. … All figures and tables are perceptible of reasonable size and supplied with informative captions. … Trace elements from soil to Human can be recommended to students, researchers, and professionals as a valuable source of information on trace element in the environment." (Alexander Plessow, Environmental Geology, Vol. 53, 2008)
