Summary "This handbook covers the most important aspects of trace elements in terrestrial environments. Each chapter addresses a particular element and gives a general introduction to its role in nature, where it originates, and its biogeochemical cycles and biological effects. In addition to a comprehensive updating of each of the element chapters, this new edition has new chapters on soil contamination, biogeochemistry, bioavailability, ecological and human health effects, risk assessment, and remediation. For the first time, the interrelationships among source term, chemical speciation, transport, bioavailability, and the risk of trace elements in organisms, in both aquatic and terrestrial systems, are discussed." "This will be an essential resource for scholars, students, and practitioners in environmental science, agronomy, ecology, environmental health, soil and plant sciences, and allied disciplines."--BOOK JACKET
