Dr. Adriano's research interests include biogeochemistry of trace metals in the soil-plant system, source term - bioavailability - risk relationships, risk reduction and management in metal-contaminated sites, waste minimization and recycling, and natural attenuation of contaminants. He has published over 180 journal and proceedings articles and book chapters and edited or co-edited 12 books including Bioremediation of Contaminated Soils (1999 American Society of Agronomy Monog. no. 37).
