About this book

This title focuses on the many aspects of the interaction between plants and heavy metals. Not only it describes the effects of heavy metal toxicity on the plant cell and its organs but it also examines the mechanisms that plants adopt to scavenge heavy metals at cellular, physiological, and metabolic level. Plants and Heavy Metals also analyses hyperaccumulator plants and shows their potential role in phytoremediation technologies in light of the recent research results.


- Heavy Metal Toxicity In Plants
- Plant Responses To Heavy Metal Toxicity
- Plants That Hyperaccumulate Heavy Metals
- "Phytoremediation: The Utilization Of Plants To Reclaim Polluted Sites"
