Chemical Bioavailability in Terrestrial Environments
Edited by Ravendra Naidu
Provides recent information developing concepts and definitions of bioavailability.
Hardcover 828 pp ISBN 9780444521699
Includes a discussion of bioavailability and ecotoxicity of contaminants and bioavailability of nutrients and
agrichemicals for applications in agriculture
Analyses tools for assessing bioavailability and the role of bioavailability in rsk assessment and remediation.
This book begins with an overview of current thinking on bioavailability, its definition and cutting edge research
on speciation and advancement in tools for assessing chemical bioavailability in the terrestrial environment.
The second section of the book focuses on the chemical speciation in bioavailability.
Section three addresses bioavailability and ecotoxicity of contaminants and leads in the next section
on bioavailability of nutrients and agrochemicals. Subsequent sections provide an overview of tools currently
being used and new cutting edge techniques to assess contaminant bioavailability.
The last section of the book builds on previous sections in relating bioavailability to risk assessment
and how this could be used for managing risks associated with contaminated land.
Of interest to researchers and scientists in soil science, agricultural science, crop science, ecology,
microbiology, and environmental microbiology.
