Arsenic in Environments and Plants: Management and Remediation Strategies (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Arsenic in Environments and Plants: Management and Remediation Strategies is a comprehensive resource that details all aspects of its contamination as an emerging threat to soil, plants and water. Sections cover arsenic distribution in groundwater, transfer from soil to plants and features of plant uptake, along with effective and eco-friendly management and remedial options for arsenic-contaminated soil and water, such as sorption of arsenic from water using organic materials (biosorbents, biochar) and inorganic materials (iron oxides, manganese oxides nanoparticles etc.). This is an essential read for plant scientists and environmentalists interested in broadening their knowledge.

Phytoremediation of arsenic contaminated soil, bioremediation of contaminated water and soil using microbial fauna, removal of arsenic in constructed wetlands and arsenic immobilization in soil by application of organic and inorganic amendments are also covered.
