Phytoremediation: Methods and Reviews (Methods
                    in Biotechnology)

Phytoremediation: Methods and Reviews (Methods in Biotechnology)
by Neil Willey (Editor); Hardcover

Humana Press; 1 edition (March 19, 2007)
Presents the most innovative recent methodological developments in phytoremediation research, and outlines a variety of the contexts in which phytoremediation has begun to be applied. A significant portion of this volume is devoted to groundbreaking methods for the production of plants that are able to degrade, take up, or tolerate the effects of pollutants. Phytoremediation: Methods and Reviews adopts a multidisciplinary approach to the examination of principles and practices of phytoremediation, from molecular manipulation to field application.

Parts I and II discuss detailed protocols for achieving several different goals of phytoremediation, including enhancing contaminant degradation, uptake, and tolerance by plants; exploiting plant diversity for phytoremedation; modifying contaminant availability; and experimentally analyzing phytoremediation potential. Parts III and IV examine a variety of progressive techniques for phytoremediation and explore their implementation and success on a global scale. This cutting-edge volume highlights the myriad of contexts in which phytoremediation can be applied, and energizes new research by describing ways in which barriers to success have been recently overcome.

Phytoremediation of Metal-Contaminated Soils
                    (Nato Science Series: IV: Earth and Environmental
                    Sciences)

 

Phytoremediation of Metal-Contaminated Soils (Nato Science Series: IV: Earth and Environmental Sciences)

by Jean-Louis Morel (Editor), Guillaume Echevarria (Editor), Nadezhda Goncharova (Editor); Hardcover

Springer; 1 edition (May 17, 2006)

This book is aimed at developing a common language among scientists working in the field of Phytoremediation. Authors of the main chapters are leading scientists in this field: some of them were among the first to have suggested the use of hyperaccumulator plants for extraction of metals from soils. Members of an EU funded research project on the feasibility of phytoextraction of metals (PHYTOREM project) from contaminated soils were also among the lecturers. Manuscripts based on the lectures presented at the ASI were revised to take into account ASI participants’ comments and suggestions, and went through a round of peer review and editing. Discussion summaries and practical recommendations, emanating from the working group and round table discussions, are provided in separate chapters at the end of the book.

Biochemical Mechanisms of Detoxification in
                    Higher Plants : Basis of Phytoremediation

Biochemical Mechanisms of Detoxification in Higher Plants : Basis of Phytoremediation

byGeorge Kvesitadze (Author), Gia Khatisashvili (Author), Tinatin Sadunishvili (Author), Jeremy J. Ramsden (Author); Hardcover

Springer; 1 edition (March 1, 2006)

Plants play a key role in purifying the biosphere of the toxic effects of industrial activity. This book shows how systematic application of the results of investigations into the metabolism of xenobiotics (foreign, often toxic substances) in plants could make a vastly increased contribution to planetary well-being. Deep physiological knowledge gained from an accumulation of experimental data enables the great differences between the detoxifying abilities of different plants for compounds of different chemical nature to be optimally exploited. Hence planting could be far more systematically adapted to actual environmental needs than is actually the case at present. The book could form the basis of specialist courses in universities and polytechnics devoted to environmental management, and advanced courses in plant physiology and biochemistry, for botany and integrative biology students. Fundamental plant physiology and biochemistry from the molecular level to whole plants and ecosystems are interwoven in a powerful and natural way, making this a unique contribution to the field.

International Journal of Phytoremediation Journal cover

Official Journal of the AEHS (www.aehsfoundation.org) and IPS (www.phytosociety.org)
"AEHS was created to facilitate communication and foster cooperation among professionals concerned with the challenge of soil protection and cleanup."

The International Journal of Phytoremediation is the first journal devoted to the publication of current laboratory and field research describing the use of plant systems to remediate contaminated environments. Phytoremediation refers to a diverse group of green technologies that use either naturally occurring or genetically engineered plants to decontaminate polluted air, soil, and water. Phytoremediation technologies currently fall into the following five categories:

The journal is an international, peer-reviewed publication designed to link professionals in the many environmental disciplines involved in the development, application, management, and regulation of emerging phytoremediation technologies. Manuscripts will be considered that address any of a wide range of issues and interests associated with the entire field of phytoremediation. High quality, original articles make up the primary content, with additional contributions as technical notes, short communications, editorials, and occasional invited review articles. Prior to publication, manuscripts must pass a rigorous peer review process managed by the editor-in-chief. The journal also publishes letters to the editor, book/software reviews, new products and patent information, and announcements of upcoming conferences and courses.

The scope of the International Journal of Phytoremediation includes:
