Air Pollution and Plant Biotechnology : Prospects for Phytomonitoring and Phytoremediation

Author: 大政, 謙次, ; Kenji Omasa; Hiharu Saji; Shohab Youssefian; Noriaki Kondo
Publisher: Tokyo : Springer Japan, 2002.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
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...
