    Heavy metals remain in the soil for a long time and h ave a residence time ranging from a few to seve ral hundr ed years (Kabata-Pendias, ). Rattan e t al. Remediating heavy metal contaminated soils and water is necessary to reduce the associated health and ecological risks, make the land resource available for agricultural production, enhance food security, and scale down land tenure problems. This book discusses the causes and the environmental impact of heavy metal contamination.

    This third edition of the book has been completely re-written, providing a wider scope and enhanced coverage. It covers the general principles of the natural occurrence, pollution sources, chemical analysis, soil chemical behaviour and soil-plant-animal relationships of heavy metals and metalloids, followed by a detailed coverage of 21 individual elements, including: antimony, arsenic, barium Price Range: $ - $ Soils polluted with heavy metals have become common across the globe due to increase in geologic and anthropogenic activities. Plants growing on these soils show a reduction in growth, performance, and yield. Bioremediation is an effective method of treating heavy metal polluted soils. It is a widely accepted method that is mostly carried out in situ; hence it is suitable for the Cited by:

    The influence of these heavy metals on plants and their metabolic activities caused by the geological and biological redistribution of heavy metals through pollution of the air, water and soil were briefly discussed in this article.

Heavy Heavy metals in soils book in soils continue to receive increasing attention due to the greater understanding of their toxicological importance in ecosystems, agriculture and human health, the growing scientific and public awareness of environmental issues and the development of even more sensitive analytical techniques to measure their concentrations accurately.5/5(1).

Provides a comprehensive review of heavy metals in soils, methods of analysis, and the impact of these metals on the environment. Each element is given a chapter of its own, with emphasis on soil-chemical processes and factors influencing the availability of metals to plants.

Also discusses health effects, soil-plant-animal/human pathways, and Format: Hardcover. Heavy metals in soils continue to receive increasing attention due to the growing scientific and public awareness of environmental issues and the development of analytical techniques to measure their concentrations accurately.

This book provides an up-to-date, balanced and comprehensive review of the subject in two sections: /5(4). Provides a comprehensive review of heavy metals in soils, methods of analysis, and the impact of these metals on the environment.

Each element is given a chapter of its own, with emphasis on soil-chemical processes and factors influencing the availability of metals to plants.3/5(5). Heavy Metal Release in Soils describes and quantifies desorption/release kinetics and dissolution reactions in the release of heavy metals from soil.

The book focuses on: New techniques - microscopic surface techniques, NMR and electrophoresis, XAFS, Cited by: Understanding the mechanisms associated with metal complexes and the sequestering metal contaminants in the environment is essential for effective remediation.

Heavy Metal Release in Soils describes and quantifies desorption/release kinetics and dissolution reactions in the release of heavy metals from soil. The book focuses on. This book covers the general principles of the occurrence, analysis, soil chemical behaviour and soil-plant-animal aspects of heavy metals and metalloids, followed by more detailed coverage of 21 elements: antimony, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, gold.

The work offers new experimental evidence on the fate of multiple heavy metals in soil columns and new field results on how multiple ions influence the mobility of metals in the soil profile under water-unsaturated flow.

Emphasizing modeling approaches, the book begins with an overview of the competitive behavior of heavy metals. Following a description of the various sources and factors influencing the contents of heavy metal pollution in post-catastrophic and agricultural soils, subsequent chapters examine soil enzymes and eggs as bio-monitors, lead adsorption, the effects of arsenic on microbial diversity, and the effects of Mediterranean grasslands on abandoned mines.

Human activities have dramatically changed the composition and organisation of soils. Industrial and urban wastes, agricultural application and also mining activities resulted in an increased concentration of heavy metals in soils. How plants and soil microorganisms cope with this situation and the.

This third edition of the book has been completely re-written, providing a wider scope and enhanced coverage. It covers the general principles of the natural occurrence, pollution sources, chemical analysis, soil chemical behaviour and soil-plant-animal relationships of heavy metals and metalloids, followed by a detailed coverage of 21 individual elements, including: antimony, arsenic, 1/5(1).

The topics presented include: the general role of heavy metals in biological soil systems; the relation of inorganic and organic pollutions; heavy metal, salt tolerance and combined effects with salinity; effects on abuscular mycorrhizal and on saprophytic soil fungi; heavy metal resistance by streptomycetes; trace element determination of environmental samples; the use of microbiological communities as indicators; phytostabilization of lead polluted sites by native plants; effects of soil.

Much of the emphasis of the chapters in this book is on heavy metal(loid)s as soil contaminants, their bioavailability and possible toxicity to plants, ecosystems, animals and humans. Many studies have documented different natural sources of heavy metals.

Under different and certain environmental conditions, natural emissions of heavy metals occur. Such emissions include volcanic eruptions, sea-salt sprays, forest fires, rock weathering, biogenic Cited by: This third edition of the book has been completely re-written, providing a wider scope and enhanced coverage.
