This book provides the reader with the comprehensive view necessary to understand and critically evaluate the design, implementation, and monitoring of phytoremediation at sites characterized by contaminated groundwater. Part I presents the historical foundation of the interaction between plants and groundwater, introduces fundamental groundwater concepts for plant physiologists, and introduces basic plant physiology for hydrogeologists. Part II presents information on how to assess, design, implement, and monitor phytoremediation projects for hydrologic control. Part III presents how plants take up and detoxify a wide range of organic xenobiotics in contaminated groundwater systems, and provides various approaches on how this can be assessed and monitored. Throughout, concepts are emphasized with numerous case studies, illustrations and pertinent literature citations.

From the reviews:

'Landmeyer (US Geological Survey) provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of this interdisciplinary science, including starting sections that give background information on relevant aspects of both plant physiology and groundwater hydrology necessary to understand plant/groundwater interactions. ' Summing Up: Recommended. ' Graduate students through professionals/practitioners.' (C. W. Dimmick, Choice, Vol. 49 (11), August, 2012)
