Still the Gold Standard Resource on Trace Elements and Metals in Soils

This highly anticipated fourth edition of the bestselling Trace Elements in Soils and Plants reflects the explosion of research during the past decade regarding the presence and actions of trace elements in the soil-plant environment. The book provides information on the biogeochemistry of these elements and explores how they affect food quality.

Incorporating data from over 1500 new resources, this edition includes the most up-to-date information on the relationship of trace elements to topics such as:

* Soil natural/background contents
* Sorption/desorption processes
* Anthropogenic impact and soil phytoremediation
* Phytoavailability and functions in plants
* Contents of food plants

The book discusses the assessment of the natural/background content of trace elements in soil, bioindication of the chemical status of environmental compartments, soil remediation, and hyperaccumulation and phytoextraction of trace metals from the soil. The table of contents reflects the IUPAC’s recommendation for numbering element groups, giving the new edition an updated organizational flow.

Trace Elements in Soils and Plants, Fourth Edition illustrates why trace elements’ behavior in soil controls their transfer in the food chain, making this book an invaluable reference for agronomists, soil and plant scientists, nutritionists, and geochemists.
