Media reviews
This timely book sets out to be a balanced and comprehensive review and it achieves this purpose admirably. As with all worthwhile technical reviews it is a joint effort, in this case by 10 contributors who write well and authoritatively on their chosen subject ... This volume is recommended to students and scientists of all disciplines and attainments, whose primary interests are in the soil or the environment, both for its technical merit and as a source of reference. - Chemistry in Britain; It is an excellent book and can be highly recommended even to those who already own the first edition but want up-to-date information for all the heavy metals at their fingertips. - Analyst; This is an excellent modern text, which covers the origins, occurence and behaviour of metals and metalloids in soils. - Waste Management Today; It will no doubt become a standard source of reference for agricultural and environmental scientists. - Soil Use and Management; It is...pleasing to see the arrival of a fully revised, updated and expanded second edition...It will, without doubt, continue to be recognised as a standard source of reference for information on the behaviour and impacts of heavy metals in soil systems. - Environmental Pollution; This book is a very worthwhile contribution to the store of knowledge and understanding of the behaviour and impacts of heavy metals in soil. - The Environmentalist
