About this book

Provides detailed coverage of metal biomonitoring and bioremediation in terrestrial ecosystems using higher plants, lichens, mosses and fungi. Gives an exhaustive account of the most reliable procedures for sampling, sample preparation, analytical determinations and interpretation of data.


Chemical elements and plant life; sil geochemistry and anthropogenic modification of element bioavailability; the emission and dispersal of atmospheric trace elements; plants as biomonitors of atmospheric pollutants; selection, sampling and preparation of plants for trace element analysis; analytical determinants and data interpretation; fungi and higher plants as biomonitors of trace elements in soil; lichens as biomonitors of airborne trace elements; mosses as passive and active biomonitors of trace elements; higher plants as biomonitors of airborne trace elements; trace elements in terrestrial food chains; phytoremediation of metal-contaminated sites.
