    The first publication to address all of the following in one volume: regulatory perspectives • comparative plant toxicology • plant xenobiotic bioaccumulation • effects of air pollution on plants • general phytotoxicity • and new plant bioassay approaches. STP 1091 describes many new approaches for plant bioassays, including those suitable for in aquatic and terrestrial environments.
