Reviews

From the reviews:

"Each metal … has different effects on plant metabolism and these are described throughout the book. … The role of organic acids, peptides and proteins in absorption, transport and storage of heavy metals in plant organs … are well described in the text. Moreover, the book presents experiences and information regarding the possible use of these plants in polluted areas both as environmental bio-indicators and as agents for phytoremediation, making this volume attractive for its useful scientific information aimed at researchers as well as students." (Elisa Azzarello, Advances in Horticultural Science, Issue 4, 2006)
