About this book

The first book devoted to the complex interactions between trace elements, soils, plants, and microorganisms in the rhizosphere, Trace Elements in the Rhizosphere brings together the experimental, investigative, and modeling branches of rhizosphere research. Written by an international team of authors, it provides a comprehensive overview of the mechanisms and fate of trace elements in the rhizosphere and the application of this information to phytoremediation technologies and sustainable agriculture and forestry.With ecological and environmental issues moving to the forefront, the focus of rhizosphere research has increasingly shifted to studying the effect of plant-microbial association on the bioavailability, uptake, and transformation of inorganic and organic contaminants in soils. Contaminant-rhizosphere interactions have attracted renewed attention as plants have been proposed for use in the remediation of contaminated soils. Trace Elements in the Rhizosphere provides an in-depth look at rhizosphere processes and leads the way to further understanding and developments in this field.


Contents

Phytoavailability of Trace Elements and Radionuclides in the Rhizosphere and Application to Phytoremediation. Interactions of Trace Elements with Root Microbial Associations. Experimental Techniques and Modeling Approaches to Study the Fate of Trace Elements in the Rhizospere.
