Among them, heavy metals are an exclusive group of toxicants because they are stable and difficult to disseminate into non-toxic forms.

The ever-increasing concentrations of such pollutants in the soil are considered serious threats toward everyone’s health and the environment. Many techniques are used to clean, eliminate, obliterate or sequester these hazardous pollutants from the soil. However, these techniques can be costly, labor intensive, and often disquieting.Phytoremediation is a simple, cost effective, environmental friendly and fast-emerging new technology for eliminating toxic heavy metals and other related soil pollutants.

Soil Remediation and Plants provides a common platform for biologists, agricultural engineers, environmental scientists, and chemists, working with a common aim of finding sustainable solutions to various environmental issues. The book provides an overview of ecosystem approaches and phytotechnologies and their cumulative significance in relation to solving various environmental problems.Identifies the molecular mechanisms through which plants are able to remediate pollutants from the soilExamines the challenges and possibilities towards the various phytoremediation candidatesIncludes the latest research and ongoing progress in phytoremediation
