Phosphate-phosphorus present in the vadose zone of soil as native, added, or residual fertilizer influences the retention, transport, and bioavailability of heavy metals, metalloids, or metallic radionuclides to aboveground vegetation, soil microorganisms, and fauna that browse that vegetation or directly ingest contaminated soil. This book, Phosphate in Soils: Interaction with Micronutrients, Radionuclides, and Heavy Metals, is a compendium of contemporary research on mechanisms of immobilization and the release of metals, metalloids, and metallic radionuclides. The book was developed given the ongoing interest in phosphate-containing materials for in situ remediation of contaminated soils and is important to researchers in vadose zone...
