About this book

Metal contamination is an increasing ecological and eco-toxicological risk. Understanding the processes involved in metal mobilization, absorption and mineralization in soils are key features for soil bioremediation.

Following an introduction into the physical, chemical and biological components of contaminated soils, various chapters address the interactions of soil, microorganisms, plants and the water phase necessary to transfer metals to biological systems. These includes topics such as potential hazards at mining sites; rare earth elements in biotic and abiotic acidic systems; manganese redox reactions; uranium in seepage water; heavy metal resistant streptomycetes; actinomycetes; mycorrhiza in re-forestation; metal accumulation, hyperaccummulation and tolerance in plants; and, microbial heavy metal uptake and their potential for bioremediation.
