The nature of trace elements in the environment depends largely on their interactions in the soil, water and air. Understanding the fate and transport of trace elements in the environment is essential for humans and animals, plants, water bodies, and soils. This series provides timely information on the biological, chemical, and physical processes governing the interactions of trace elements in the environment. Such knowledge is needed for minimizing the negative impact of trace elements on soil and water quality, plants, and human health. Books from this series are of value to industrial and mining engineers, government regulators, scientists, and consultants in the environmental arena.

Most reported incidents of soil contamination include an array of heavy metals species rather than a single ion. The various interactions in these multicomponent or multiple-ion systems significantly impact the fate and transport of heavy metals, and competition for sorption sites on soil matrix ...
