Reviews
“The detailed coverage of diverse topics indicates an impressive breadth of knowledge on this subject. Heavy Metals and Other Pollutants in the Environment has succeeded in providing an overview of both new data and divergent views of specialists in different fields of biological and ecological knowledge on interrelation between abiotic environment and living organisms. Although there is particular emphasis on East European territory, this book will appeal to researchers in other countries, regardless of their regional interests, in addition to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in soil science, chemistry, botany, microbiology and ecology.”
—— Nikolai V. Glotov, DSc, Professor, Dept. of Biology, Mari State University, Yoshkar-Ola, Russia), in Journal of Nature Science and Sustainable Technology, 11(1)

This important new volume presents a plethora of research focusing on the distribution of heavy metals in soils and rocks of natural habitats, farmlands, and urbanized areas along with the factors influencing their bioavailability. The authors evaluate such factors as the content of organic matter, levels of soil acidity, content of mineral fertilizers, and more. Developed for ecologists and specialists in the field of environmental protection and the conservation of biological diversity, the book presents the problems of reducing the anthropogenic load on the surrounding countryside and focuses on sustainable agricultural development.

With data obtained by scientists from Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus who represent the research centers of the regions, the book contains studies of the soils and environments of these different climatic regions, regions that significantly differ from each other in natural conditions. The focus is dedicated to the questions of occurrence and behavior of heavy metals and pollutants in the complex soil-plant-animal-human system.

Topics include:
• risks of pollution of environment with heavy metals for higher animals
• possibility of foodstuff protection from pollutants
• heavy metals in soils and mother rocks
• impact of heavy metals on vegetation
• effects of heavy metals on algae and soil microorganisms
• effects of heavy metals on early an remote consequences of irradiation

Features include:
• Presents original results on seasonal and profile dynamics of heavy metal concentration in soil and their connection with plant and microorganisms development
• Presents an original theoretical description of process of cell reaction on heavy metal treatment
• Reviews all aspects of heavy metals behavior in complex soil-plant-animal-human interrelationship
• Describes relevant experimental techniques for the selection and design of biological ways of decreasing the toxicity of pollutants in environment for humans

Heavy Metals and Other Pollutants in the Environment: Biological Aspects will be of interest to ecologists, soil scientists, geneticists, physiologists, and other related professionals. The book will helpful for professors, undergraduate, and graduate students interested in the problems of interaction between living organisms and the abiotic environment. The book recommended for libraries at universities and the departments of agriculture and environment.
