Describes the bioavailability, toxicity and risk relationships of metal contaminants in ecosystems. The book has specific discussions of fundamental principles and scope of bioavailability, soil, plant and mircrobial processes that influence metal dynamics, indicators of bioavailability and selected case studies demonstrating the impact of metals on terrestrial ecosystems and how bioavailability relates to regulatory and site assessment requirements. The definition of the term "bioavailability" and the scientific concept on which it is based are unclear. The methods adopted vary throughout the world and there is no single standard technique for the assessment of either plant or microbial availability of contaminants or their ecotoxicological impacts on soil biota. The coverage beings with fundamental principles controlling bioavailability, environmental and human health risk assessment, bioavailability as affected by chemical speciation, potential role of bioavailability in risk assessment, and microbial parameters as indicators of bioavailability. The book also includes studies demonstrating how manipulation of bioavailability could mitigate ecotoxicological effects of metals.
