  • Fundamentals of Biofilm Research

    The history of natural sciences demonstrates that major advances in the understanding of natural processes follow the development of relevant tools. The progress of biofilm research is no different. While individual areas have mushroomed in recent years, difficulties in reproducing results, communicating new findings, and reconciling differences ...

  • Biofilms - Science and Technology

    Biofilms -- Science and Technology covers the main topics of biofilm formation and activity, from basic science to applied aspects in engineering and medicine. The book presents a masterly discussion of microbial adhesion, the metabolism of microorganisms in biofilms, modelling of mass transfer and biological reaction within biofilms, as well ...

  • Biological Wastewater Treatment: Third Edition

    Written by experts in the field, the thoroughly updated 3rd Edition of Biological Wastewater Treatment covers commonly used and emerging suspended and attached growth reactors. Drawing on their extensive academic and industrial experience, the authors discuss combined carbon and ammonia oxidation, activated sludge, biological nutrient removal, ...

  • Colloidal Transport in Porous Media

    Colloids are known to be the often neglected phase for the transport of pollutants in aquatic ecosystems. The book covers the basics of abiotic colloid characterization, of biocolloids and biofilms, the resulting transport phenomena and their engineering aspects. The subject is presented from an international group of leading specialists devoted ...

  • Handbook of Biological Wastewater Treatment: Second Edition

    The scope of this comprehensive new edition of Handbook of Biological Wastewater Treatment ranges from the design of the activated sludge system, final settlers, auxiliary units (sludge thickeners and digesters) to pre-treatment units such as primary settlers and UASB reactors. The core of the book deals with the optimized design of biological and ...

  • Microbial Mats

    This book provides information about microbial mats, from early fossils to modern mats located in marine and terrestrial environments. Microbial mats – layered biofilms containing different types of cells – are most complex systems in which representatives of various groups of organisms are found together. Among them are cyanobacteria and ...

  • Microbial Growth Kinetics

    Microbial Growth Kinetics opens with a critical review of the history of microbial kinetics from the 19th century to the present day. The results of original investigations into the growth of soil microbes in both laboratory and natural environments are summarised. The book emphasises the analysis of complex dynamic behaviour of microorganism ...
