20–23 September 2004, Wuhan, China
The Fourth International Symposium of the Working Group MO “Interactions of Soil Minerals with Organic Components and Microorganisms (ISMOM)” of the International Union of Soil Sciences, Environmental Significance of Mineral-Organic Component-Microorganism Interactions in Terrestrial Systems will be held in Wuhan, China, 20–23 September 2004. The meeting will address timely topics covering dynamics and transformations of nutrients and pollutants in soils and the impact on environmental quality in the terrestrial ecosystem. It will serve as a forum for interactions of scientists of pertinent disciplines from developing and developed countries worldwide.
There will be plenary lectures and keynote lectures in six subsections: (1) transformations and dynamics of pollutants in soil environments, (2) chemical, biological, and biochemical processes in the rhizosphere, (3) bioavailability of metals and xenobiotics immobilized on soil components, (4) distribution and activity of biomolecules in terrestrial systems, (5) interactions between soil microbial biomass and organic matter/nutrient transformation, and (6) impact of interactions among soil mineral colloids, organic matter and biota on risk assessment and restoration of terrestrial ecosystems. This symposium is not only co-sponsored by IUPAC, but also by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and the Soil Science Society of China.
