9789401783910: Heavy Metals in Soils: Trace Metals and Metalloids in Soils and their Bioavailability (Environmental Pollution)

This third edition of the book has been completely re-written, providing a wider scope and enhanced coverage. It covers the general principles of the natural occurrence, pollution sources, chemical analysis, soil chemical behaviour and soil-plant-animal relationships of heavy metals and metalloids, followed by a detailed coverage of 21 individual elements, including:  antimony, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, gold, lead, manganese, mercury, molybdenum, nickel, selenium, silver, thallium, tin, tungsten, uranium, vanadium and zinc. The book is highly relevant for those involved in environmental science, soil science, geochemistry, agronomy, environmental health, and environmental engineering, including specialists responsible for the management and clean-up of contaminated land.

From the Back Cover:

This book covers the general principles of the occurrence, analysis, soil chemical behaviour and soil-plant-animal aspects of heavy metals and metalloids, followed by more detailed coverage of 21 elements: antimony, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, gold, lead, manganese, mercury, molybdenum, nickel, selenium, silver, thallium, tin, tungsten, uranium, vanadium and zinc.

This third edition of the book has been completely rewritten by mainly new authors and is now divided into three sections:

 1: Basic Principles 

2: Key Heavy Metals and Metalloids

3: Other Heavy Metals and Metalloids of Potential Environmental Significance

 The scope has been widened with four new chapters in Section 1 dealing with toxicity in soil organisms, soil-plant relationships, heavy metals and metalloids as micronutrients for plants and/or animals, and the modelling of critical loads of heavy metals for use in risk assessment and environmental legislation.

This book will be of great value to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, research scientists and professionals in environmental science, soil science, geochemistry, agronomy, environmental health and environmental engineering, including specialists responsible for the management and clean-up of contaminated land.

Review:

From the reviews of the third edition:

Selected by Choice magazine as an "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2013

“This book should be available to every environmental scientist for reference purposes. ... Heavy Metals in Soils delivers what it promises: a broad general coverage of the significant heavy metals and metalloids in soil ... . The coverage of the major heavy metals is thorough, and the historical background provided for each is fascinating. ... This book would be valuable for a wide audience as a quick source of information ... . Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals.” (M. S. Coyne, Choice, Vol.50 (7), March, 2013)
