Vanadium in the Environment, 2 Part Set

Jerome O. Nriagu (Editor)

ISBN: 978-0-471-24907-8 March 1998 844 Pages


This two part volume in the Advances in Environmental Science and Technology series is organized and presented in the same manner as the successful Arsenic in the Environment books. The author has assembled an international panel of experts to address the effects of vanadium exposure on aquatic and terrestrial environments, on human health, and on wildlife, This monograph is the most up-to-date resource on the chemical and toxicological aspects of vanadium exposure available, and one of the few to explore this topic in a focused manner.
