Nanomaterials in Plants, Algae and Micro-organisms: Concepts and Controversies: Volume 2not only covers all the new technologies used in the synthesis of nanoparticles, it also tests their response on plants, algae and micro-organisms in aquatic ecosystems. Unlike most works in the field, the book doesn't focus exclusively on the higher organisms. Instead, it explores the smaller life forms on which they feed. Topics include the impacts of plant development, how different nanoparticles are absorbed by biota, the impact different metals-including silver and rare earth metals-have on living organisms, and the effects nanoparticles have on aquatic ecosystems as a whole.

As nanotechnology based products have become a trillion-dollar industry, there is a need to understand the implications to the health of our biota and ecosystems as the earth is increasingly inundated with these materials.

  • Covers the issues of nanoparticles on more simple organisms and their ecosystems
  • Draws upon global experts to help increase understanding of the interface mechanisms at the physiological, biochemical, molecular, and even genomic and proteomic level between ENPs and biological systems
  • Provides a critical assessment of the progress taking place on this topic
  • Sheds light on future research needs and scientific challenges that still exist in nanoparticle and living organism interactions
