Edited by William T Frankenberger, Jr. 
Marcel Dekker  December 2001  



Hardback  410 pages, Illustrated  ISBN 9780824706760      £145.00

As one of the series Books In Soils, Plants and The Environment, this volume details recent advances in the prevention and control of arsenic and arsenic compounds in the air, soil, and water and offers the most recent and analytical methods for the detection and study of arsenic in the environment and human body. It also outlines modern bioremediation techniques for effective treatment of contaminated water supplies. It will be of interest to environmental and soil scientists, agricultural engineers, toxicologists, hydrologists, geologists and microbiologists as well as advanced undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
