Whole plant systems can be a powerful tool in remediating water and soil contaminants. This book focuses on successful strategies for phytoremediation of agrochemicals, metals, and industrial organic chemicals. It also discusses recent developments in bioremediation using plant materials and explores the metabolism of contaminants by plants.
"Phytoremediation, or the use of plants to remediate contaminated soils and water environments, has recently become an area of intense study. Relative to many traditional remediation engineering techniques, phytoremediation is a fledgling technology . . . This book provides an accumulation of some of the most recent researches on phytoremediation. An overview is presented that describes the current understanding and use of plants for the stabilization and cleanup of contaminants. An additional overview of rhizosphere ecology is also presented. The remainder of the book discusses three topics: phytoremediation of agrochemicals, industrial organic chemicals, and metals. . . . Bringing multi-disciplinary teams consisting of biologists, chemists, engineers, as well as lawyers, accountants, and public advocates should continue to yield additional solutions and possibilities for continued application of phytoremediation."--Cellulose Chemistry and Technology
