Description

Handbook of Bioremediation: Physiological, Molecular and Biotechnological Interventions discusses the mechanisms of responding to inorganic and organic pollutants in the environment using different approaches of phytoremediation and bioremediation. Part One focuses specifically on inorganic pollutants and the use of techniques such as metallothionein-assisted remediation, phytoextraction and genetic manipulation. Part Two covers organic pollutants and consider topics such as plant enzymes, antioxidant defense systems and the remediation mechanisms of different plant species.  This comprehensive volume is a must-read for researchers interested in plant science, agriculture, soil science and environmental science.

The techniques covered in this book will ensure scientists have the knowledge to practice effective bioremediation techniques themselves.

Key Features

  • Provides a comprehensive review of the latest advances in bioremediation of organic and inorganic pollutants
  • Discusses a range of different phytoremediation techniques
  • Evaluates the role of genomics and bioinformatics within bioremediation

Readership

Researchers and students interested in plant science, agriculture, soil science and environmental science
