Albania and I have just had a chapter published on Regulatory Limits for Trace Elements in Soils in a book edited by Peter Hooda on Trace Elements in Soils. A preview of the book is available on the publisher’s website. Our chapter describes how regulatory limits such as soil quality standards and guideline values are derived for both wildlife and human receptors. We also take a forward look at how issues such as background concentrations and bioavailability are likely to be dealt with by regulatory agencies in the future. Email me if you’d like further information.
