Bioavailability of hydrophobic organic contaminants in soils: fundamental concepts and techniques for analysis
Soils represent a major sink for organic xenobiotic contaminants in the environment. The degree to which organic chemicals are retained within the soil is controlled by soil properties, such as
Microbe‐aliphatic hydrocarbon interactions in soil: implications for biodegradation and bioremediation
The aims of this review are to consider the physicochemical properties of aliphatic hydrocarbons and highlight mechanisms controlling their fate and behaviour in soil, and to discuss the bioavailability and bioaccessibility of alphatic hydro Carbons in soil.
Copper speciation and impacts on bacterial biosensors in the pore water of copper-contaminated soils.
Knowledge of heavy metal speciation and its relationship with biological responses is important for the derivation of effects-based soil quality criteria. We determined soluble Cu concentrations an...
Assessment of bioavailability of heavy metals using lux modified constructs of Pseudomonas fluorescens
The very sensitive response of lux‐marked terrestrial bacteria to PTEs identified the potential for a rapid and flexible ecotoxicity assay for assessing the pollution of soil or fresh water environments.
Behaviour and assessment of bioavailability of organic contaminants in soil: relevance for risk assessment and remediation
Abstract. Soils contaminated with organic chemicals are now widespread in industrialized and developing countries, and the risk assessment and remediation of such contaminated sites is a priority.
Antimony bioavailability in mine soils.
