on which human beings survive.
Hardcover 550 pp ISBN 9783540327134
The quality of food is such a live issue at the moment that this is an essential tool for researchers in
a variety of disciplines. Minor inorganic constituents of food, trace elements, are of special interest
due to their specific properties in both abiotic and biotic environmental compartments.
The authors' intention is to summarize up-to-date interdisciplinary data for the concise presentation
of our understanding of trace-element transfer in the food chain, from soil to man.
Containing 209 useful tables, the book also explores geochemical processes and offers information
on international legislation on trace elements as both micronutrients and contaminants in soil and food
are presented in parallel and are related to ecology and health risk assessments.
Of interest to: Researchers, students and professionals in environmental sciences,
those who are interested in environmental chemistry, ecotoxicology, environmental
medicine and food science
