  • Description

This reference summarizes data on heavy metal accumulation, biomonitoring, toxicity and tolerance, metal contamination and pollution in the environment, and the importance of biodeversity for environmental monitoring and cleanup of metal-contaminated and polluted ecosystems-advocating the use of bacteria, mycorrhizae, freshwater algae, salt marshes, bryo- and pteridophytes, angiosperms, constructed wetlands, reed beds, and floating plant systems and tree crops to treat wastewaters and industrial effluents containing toxic heavy metals.
Containing over 1800 references, tables, drawings, and photographs, Metals in the Environment discusses different types of bacteria and mycorrhizae commonly found in metal-polluted habitats....outlines the effects of metals on freshwater algae, growth, and metabolism....details the crucial role of aquatic macrophytes (including salt marshes) in biogeochemical cycling of trace metals....covers radial distribution patterns of elements in tree rings and their utility in environmental monitoring...examines the adaptive changes of trees to heavy metal stress and the role of tree crops in remediating heavy metals in the soil...reveals scientific uses of tree bark pockets for environmental research as pollution time capsules for noxious metals.....investigates aluminum toxicity and tolerance mechanisms in selected plants....appraises the impact of heavy metals on microbial and below-ground boidiversity......surveys the behavior of heavy metals in soil compartments and uptake by plants, as well as the financial costs of polluted soil remediation....and more.
