Trace Elements and Heavy Metals in Irish Soils

This volume consists of a compilation of existing collated information on trace elements/heavy metals in soils, plants and food. Information presented in the past by Johnstown Castle staff that is largely relevant to Ireland is reproduced here. Papers published in scientific journals have not been included although, of course, the information enclosed herein is largely derived from them. Articles were part of the output from an active programme on trace elements/heavy metals that has now all but ended. Much of this information still exists in hard copy but is becoming less easy to access and is in danger of being lost. This information is as relevant today as when it was first compiled.
