Summary:
Air pollution is ubiquitous in industrialized societies, causing a host of environmental problems. It is thus essential to monitor and reduce pollution levels. A number of plant species already are being exploited as detectors (for phytomonitoring) and as scavengers (for phytoremediation) of air pollutants. With advances in biotechnology, it is now feasible to modify plants for a wider range of phytomonitoring and  Read more...

Researchers and students working in plant biotechnology and the environmental sciences or considering new areas of investigation will find this volume a valuable reference."@en ;
