is known about the physicochemical and biological interfacial
interactions at the molecular level in the rhizosphere. The
dynamics, transformations, bioavailability, and toxicity of
metal pollutants, anthropogenic organics, and essential elements
should be influenced enormously by the chemistry and biology
of the rhizosphere. Therefore, the research on this subject
matter should be an issue of intense interest on a global
scale for years to come. It is for this reason that a symposium
Interactions and the Impact on the Transformation and Fate
of Nutrients and Pollutants in the Ecosystem
will be held 26–30 November 2008 in Pucón, Chile.
The symposium, which is IUPAC sponsored, will be the fifth
in the series on Interactions of Soil Minerals with Organic
Components and Microorganisms of Commission 2.5 Soil Interfacial
Reactions of the International Union of Soil Sciences.
The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum in which environmental chemists and mineralogists, environmental microbiologists, ecologists, toxicologists, and soil scientists can interact, gain state-of-the-art knowledge, and identify gaps in the field. This symposium should advance the environmental chemistry of soil interfacial reactions in the rhizosphere and the subsequent development of innovative management strategies to sustain environmental quality, ensure food security and safety, and encourage ecosystem health on a global scale.
