About this book

This book provides extensive and comprehensive knowledge to researchers and academics who work on strontium contaminated areas. Topics covered include impact on plants and environment,  as well as remediation strategies. 

This book will inform graduate and undergraduate students who are specializing in radioecology, especially strontium uptake via soil to plants, safe disposal of strontium waste, remediation legacies and impact of strontium waste material on the natural and manmade environment. A broad overview of reviews is provided covering a number of original publications on strontium plant uptake, including case studies that present the latest technological developments and future trends for investigating strontium mobility in soil and treatment of strontium contaminated areas. 

About the authors

Dharmendra K. Gupta is Sr. Scientist of environmental biotechnology/radioecology and already published more than 80 refereed research papers/review articles in peer reviewed journals and edited ten books. His field of research includes abiotic stress by radionuclides/heavy metals and xenobiotics in plants; antioxidative system in plants, environmental pollution (radionuclides/heavy metals) remediation through plants (phytoremediation).

Clemens Walther is professor of radioecology and radiation protection and director of the Institute for Radioecology and Radiation Protection at the Leibniz Universität Hannover. He published more than 100 papers in peer reviewed journals. His field of research is actinide chemistry with a focus on solution species and formation of colloids, ultra-trace detection and speciation of radionuclides in the environment by mass spectrometry and laser spectroscopy.
