How do plants react to elements in the soil?

A vital question, particulary in today's world of increasing environmental contamination...

The answer can be found in this book. It has an extraordinarily broad basis, compiling up-to-date information from numerous specialist disciplines. Key articles are devoted to

- Soil Chemistry and Bioavailability

- Metal-tolerant Plants

- Metalloenzymes

- Toxic Effects of Metals

- Radionuclides

Moreover emphasis is placed on environmental aspects, with detailed considerations of plants that hyperaccumulate heavy metals and plants that are indicators for pollution. A discussion of experimental techniques rounds off the book. They include sampling, sample preparation, analytical methods and aspects of quality assurance.

All in all a valuable forum for the exchange of current thinking across a broad spectrum of disciplines.
