Fulvic & Humic Acids : Chemical Composition, Soil Applications & Ecological Effects Hardback

Edited by Kristopher D. Barrett


This book is about humic and fulvic acids, two types of organic substances which are increasingly becoming popular in agriculture and organic farming.

In this book, the authors study and reveal their research on humic substances and the different aspects related to their formation.

Other chapters include recent research on GRSP (Glomalin Related Soil Protein) and its relation to different kinds of fluorescent substances, including fulvic acid-like and humic acid-like substances.

The last two chapters of the book explore humic acids and their ability to interfere in molecular ecological studies as well as the various methods one could use to measure the humic acids' concentration in soil-extracted nucleic acids.

Finally, this book presents an in-depth look at the role of humic materials in the dispersion of radioactive contaminants in the environment, the latter of which are some of the most broadly circulated substances on the earth's surface, occurring in soils, rivers, lakes and seas.
