This book provides a comprehensive review designed to aid in the understanding and critical evaluation of phytoremediation design, implementation, and monitoring at contaminated groundwater sites. Part I presents the historical foundation of the interaction between plants and groundwater, describes 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 covers how plants extract and detoxify a wide range of organic xenobiotics in contaminated groundwater systems and provides various approaches for assessing and monitoring remediation progress. The concepts are emphasized with numerous case studies, illustrations, and pertinent literature citations.
