Supported by nearly 60 illustrations and tables, Biogeochemistry, Availability, and Transport of Metals in the Environment
  • highlights the atmospheric transport of metals
  • studies the marine biogeochemistry of iron and its impact on the carbon cycle
  • considers the bioavailability of trace metals in freshwater environments and in soils
  • critically discusses the uptake of heavy metals by higher plants, algae, and cyanobacteria
  • covers topics such as arsenic in groundwater, the cycling of antimony, the microbial transformations of radionuclides, and the biogeochemistry of carbonates

Volume 44, devoted solely to the vital research areas concerning the biogeochemistry of metals and their transport in the environment and availability to living systems, offers 9 timely and authoritative chapters on these fascinating topics by 19 internationally recognized experts.
