About this book

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.

Reviews

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)
