Phytomanagement of Polluted Sites: Market Opportunities in Sustainable Phytoremediation brings together recent and established knowledge on different aspects of phytoremediation, providing this information in a single source that offers a cutting-edge synthesis of scientific and experiential knowledge on industrially contaminated site restoration that is useful for both practitioners and scientists. The book gives interested groups, both non-profit and for-profit, methods to manage dumpsites and other contaminated areas, including tactics on how to mitigate costs and even profit from ecological restoration.
- Covers successful examples of turning industrially contaminated sites into ecologically healthy revenue producers
- Presents examples of the applications of phytomanagement of dumpsites from around the globe
- Provides the tools the reader needs to select specific plant species according to site specificity
