Microbe-Assisted Phytoremediation of Environmental Pollutants : Recent Advances and Challenges
Microbe-Assisted Phytoremediation of Environmental Pollutants: Recent Advances and Challenges provides comprehensive information on the principles and practical knowledge of microbe-assisted phytoremediation of organic and inorganic pollutants for environmental safety.
This book describes the physiological, biochemical, microbiological, and molecular basis of microbe-assisted phytoremediation and contains many relevant topics to fill the gaps in developing an understanding of microbe-assisted phytoremediation of environmental pollutants. The book provides state-of-the-art knowledge on fundamental, practical, and purposeful utilization of plant-associated bacteria (plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria [PGPR] and endophytes) and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi for plant growth promotion and enhanced phytoremediation of environmental pollutants in the contaminated matrix. Features:Provides a state-of-the-art overview of microbe-assisted phytoremediationEmphasizes the roles of PGPR, endophytes, and mycorrhizal fungi in assisted phytoremediationElucidates biochemical and molecular mechanisms of microbe-assisted phytoremediationDetails field studies and success stories of microbe-assisted phytoremediationExplores advances, challenges, and future directions in microbe-assisted phytoremediationThe book serves as a valuable resource for researchers, ecotoxicologists, environmental scientists and engineers, environmental microbiologists and biotechnologists, environmental health and risk scientists, environmental science managers and administrators, remediation practitioners, environmental policymakers, and students at the postgraduate and doctoral levels in the relevant fields who wish to work on microbe-assisted phytoremediation of pollutants for environmental safety and sustainability.
