Cadmium Toxicity and Tolerance in Plants: From Physiology to Remediation presents a single research resource on the latest in cadmium toxicity and tolerance in plants. The book covers many important areas, including means of Cd reduction, from plant adaptation, including antioxidant defense, active excretion and chelation, to phytoextraction, rhizo filtration, phytodegradation, and much more. In addition, it explores important insights into the physiological and molecular mechanisms of Cd uptake and transport and presents options for improving resistance to Cd stresses. It will be ideal for both researchers and students working on cadmium pollution, plant responses and related fields of environmental contamination and toxicology.
- Includes all aspects of cadmium toxicity and tolerance in plants
- Provides a comprehensive overview of advances in cadmium toxicity, tolerance and adaptation in plants
- Elaborates on the advancement of eco-friendly techniques for cadmium remediation from soil and water
- Provides real-world, application focused techniques
