Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Each metal . has different effects on plant metabolism and these are described throughout the book. . The role of organic acids, peptides and proteins in absorption, transport and storage of heavy metals in plant organs . are well described in the text. Moreover, the book presents experiences and information regarding the possible use of these plants in polluted areas both as environmental bio-indicators and as agents for phytoremediation, making this volume attractive for its useful scientific information aimed at researchers as well as students."
