About this title

Synopsis:

This text details the plant-assisted remediation method, “phytoremediation”, which involves the interaction of plant roots and associated rhizospheric microorganisms for the remediation of soil contaminated with high levels of metals, pesticides, solvents, radionuclides, explosives, crude oil, organic compounds and various other contaminants. Each chapter highlights and compares the beneficial and economical alternatives of phytoremediation to currently practiced soil removal and burial practices.

This book covers state of the art approaches in Phytoremediation written by leading and eminent scientists from around the globe. Phytoremediation: Management of Environmental Contaminants, Volume 1 supplies its readers with a multidisciplinary understanding in the principal and practical approaches of phytoremediation from laboratory research to field application.

From the Back Cover:

Volume two of this dual volume series includes additional examples of the use of green plants and their associated communities to remove, degrade, or stabilize contaminants entering the air, water and soil of a multitude of ecosystems. The chapters in this volume provide additional examples that illustrate how phytoremediation applications can serve as one of several useful components in the overall management and control of contaminants while using relatively low cost solar driven physiological and biochemical mechanisms common in most plants. This text also has the added value of providing remediation options that offer minimal disruption to the ecosystem or habitat under repair.

Phytoremediation: Management of Environmental Contaminants, Volume 2 presents its readers with new insights into the advantages and disadvantages of using phytoremediation to manage the continuing threat of ecosystem degradation resulting from the interaction of contaminants and climate change.
