Prospects for Phytomonitoring and Phytoremediation
By K. Omasa, H. Saji, S. Youssefian , N. Kondo (Eds.)
Air Pollution is ubiquitous in industrialized societies, and is the cause of a host of environmental problems. It is thus essential that pollutant levels be monitored and reduced. A number of plant species already are being exploited as detectors (for Phytomonitoring) or scavengers (for Phytoremediation) of air pollutants. However, recent advances in biotechnology now make it feasible to modify plants for a wider range of phytomonitoring and phytoremediation applications. Air Pollution and Plant Biotechnology presents recent strategies and results in this field, including plant responses and phytomonitoring, the use of pollution-resistant plant species, imaging diagnosis of plant responses, and the use of novel transgenic plants, together with reviews of basic plant physiology and biochemistry. Researchers working in plant biotechnology or the environmental sciences, or those considering new areas of investigation, will find this volume an invaluable reference.
