Summary
"The book presents the latest research findings and prospects on soil mineral-organic matter-microorganism interactions. It includes topics covering mechanisms of transformations, dynamics and bioavailability of heavy metals, radionuclides, biomolecules and nutrients immobilized on soil minerals, humic substances, mineral-humic complexes and microorganisms and their impact on plant, animal and human health."--book jacket.

Contents
Soil physical-chemical-biological interfacial interactions: an overview -- Sorption and desorption of arsenic by soil minerals and soils in the presence of nutrients and organics -- Role of bacteria and bacteria-soil composites in metal biosorption and remediating toxic metal contaminated -- Adsorption of biopolymers, with special emphasis on globular proteins -- Relationship of polarity and structures of organic matter with sorption capacity for hydrophobic organic compounds -- Organically modified clays for pollutant uptake and environmental protection -- Microbial transformation of organic chemicals in natural environment: fate of chemicals and substantiation of microbial involvement through enrichment culturing techniques -- Soil organic matter quality and the size and activity of the microbial biomass: their significance to the quality of agricultural soils -- Soil carbon dynamics in a subtropical mountainous region, South China: results based on carbon isotopic tracing -- Bioavailability of soil-sorbed pesticides and organic contaminants -- Anticlastogenic and antitoxic actions exerted by humic substances in seedlings of various plants -- Soil heavy metal pollution and microbial communities: interactions and response assessment -- Changes in antibiotic resistance profile of soil bacterial community in association with land degradation.
