Abstract:
Soil contamination is one of the most important threats to soil health. The different aspects treated by scientists dealing with soil contamination are: characterization, impact, remediation, monitoring and prevention. Traditionally, soil contamination research was biased towards Chemistry. Here, from a biologist́s point of view, we emphasize the need to incorporate new approaches to soil contamination research by suggesting proposals of research development for these five aspects of soil contamination research, in an attempt to promote discussion on these issues.
