Plant Metal Interaction: Emerging Remediation Techniques (English Edition)


Plant Metal Interaction: Emerging Remediation Techniques covers different heavy metals and their effect on soils and plants, along with the remediation techniques currently available.

As cultivable land is declining day-by-day as a result of increased metals in our soil and water, there is an urgent need to remediate these effects. This multi-contributed book is divided into four sections covering the whole of plant metal interactions, including heavy metals, approaches to alleviate heavy metal stress, microbial approaches to remove heavy metals, and phytoremediation.

  • Provides an overview of the effect of different heavy metals on growth, biochemical reactions, and physiology of various plants
  • Serves as a reference guide for available techniques, challenges, and possible solutions in heavy metal remediation
  • Covers sustainable technologies in uptake and removal of heavy metals
