Bio-organic Amendments for Heavy Metal Remediation: Water, soil and plant approaches and technologies focuses on these core continuum media to explore remediation options using microbial, organic and combined approached. A volume in the Plant Biology, Sustainability and Climate Change series, this book offers a comprehensive view of techniques and approaches for addressing contamination by heavy metals.As anthropogenic activities increasingly negatively impact natural resources, there has been significant disturbance of water, soil, and plant continuum due to the accumulation of heavy metals. The bioaccumulation of heavy metals in the food chain could pose life-threatening effects on plants as well as humans, and there is need to find effective and sustainable remediation options. The application of bio-organic amendments could serve as a sustainable solution to this problem.Employing microbial, organic and combined approaches to reduce the accumulation of heavy metals in the food chain ultimately would lead to the production of safe food for humans.This book provides a comprehensive view of the challenge with a focus on the bioremediation of heavy metals contamination using ecotechnological approaches to protecting the soil, water and plant continuum.
