Managing Global Resources for a Secure Future

2017 Annual Meeting | Oct. 22-25 | Tampa, FL

91 CrossDiv--Symposium--Global Impacts of Environmental Contamination II

Oral Session
SSSA Cross-Divisional Symposium
This is a joint symposium organized with the Committee of Soils and Environmental Quality, Chinese Soil Science Society. The symposium focuses on linkages between environmental contamination and soil health. The release of contaminants, including heavy metals, persistent organic contaminants, pesticides, nanoparticles, chemicals of emerging concern, antibiotic resistance genes, agricultural byproducts, and soil amendments, to the environment is a source of water and soil contamination, and serves as a pathway for chronic exposure to the surrounding biota. Many of these contaminants have been implicated or are suspected to degrade soil health and agricultural product quality.
