Cadmium Toxicity and Tolerance in Plants
From Physiology to Remediation
Cadmium Toxicity and Tolerance in Plants: From Physiology to Remediation presents research and latest developments on all aspects of cadmium toxicity and tolerance in plants in a single resource.
As industrialization continues to advance, so too do the environmental issues that result. The generation of toxic metals is of increasing concern as activities such as application of pesticides and phosphate fertilizers, mining, and industrial waste which generate the most highly damaging of these toxic metals, cadmium (Cd). Researchers are working to identify effective and ecologically safe means of reducing Cd levels in soil, and toxicity in plants.
Cadmium Toxicity and Tolerance in Plants: From Physiology to Remediation is the first book to present means of Cd reduction, from plant adaptation including antioxidant defense, active excretion and chelation to phytoextraction, rhizo filtration, phytodegradation and more. The book includes important insights into the physiological and molecular mechanisms of Cd uptake and transport and presents options for improving resistance to Cd stresses.
This book will be a valuable resource for both researchers and students working on cadmium pollution and plant responses as well as related fields of environmental contamination and toxicology.
