bioremediation microbiology Books

  • Biodegradation and Bioremediation

    The diverse metabolic capabilities of microorganisms and their interactions with hazardous organic and inorganic compounds have long been recognized. Microbial processes are environmentally compatible and can be integrated with non-biological processes to detoxify, degrade and immobilize environmental contaminants. Bioremediation, the application ...

  • Polar Microbiology: The Ecology, Diversity and Bioremediation Potential of Microorganisms in Extremely Cold Environments

    Although the polar environment is the coldest on Earth, microorganisms thrive and are considered to be major contributors to biogeochemical processes. Increased human presence in this environment has been implicated as the cause of disturbances in the ecosystem, including disturbances in the microbial community structure and their role in ...

  • Microbiology of Extreme Soils

    This volume provides a comprehensive coverage of the principal extreme soil ecosystems of natural and anthropogenic origin. Extreme soils oppose chemical or physical limits to colonization by most soil organisms and present the microbiologist with exciting opportunities.Described here are fascinating environments, such as permafrost, saline, arid ...

  • Advances in Applied Bioremediation

    Bioremediation is a rapidly advancing field and the technology has been applied successfully to remediate many contaminated sites. The goal of every soil remediation method is to enhance the degradation, transformation, or detoxification of pollutants and to protect, maintain and sustain environmental quality.Advances in our understanding of the ...

  • Bioremediation of Soils Contaminated with Aromatic Compounds

    The present book represents a compilation of the major contributions of a NATO workshop on: Bioremediation of soils contaminated with aromatic compounds and took place in Tartu, Estonia. It demonstrated the importance and necessity of interdisciplinary research in modern environmental biotechnology. Next to the classical fields (microbiology, ...

  • Methods of Soil Analysis. Part 2. Microbiological and Biochemical Properties

    One of the primary references on analytical methods in soil science, Part 2 of the Methods series will be useful to all biogeoscientists, especially those with an interest in microbiology or ...

  • Manual for Soil Analysis - Monitoring and Assessing Soil Bioremediation

    Reliable methods for monitoring and assessing soil quality are a prerequisite for successful soil bioremediation projects. The fifth volume of Soil Biology presents detailed descriptions of selected methods for evaluating, monitoring and assessing bioremediation treatments of soils contaminated with organic pollutants or heavy metals.Traditional ...

  • Perchlorate

    Perchlorate is a widespread, environmentally persistent contaminant recently discovered in U.S. groundwater and drinking water supplies. This book summarizes the most current knowledge and understandings of the extent and potential sources of perchlorate contamination, its behavior, exposure pathways in the environment, toxicology and risk ...

  • Environmental Degradation and Transformation of Organic Chemicals

    Addressing the persistent environmental threat of organic chemicals with a fresh approach to degradation and transformation processes, Environmental Degradation and Transformation of Organic Chemicals examines a wide range of compounds as well as abiotic and microbiological reactions mediated by microorganisms. The book emphasizes the pathways ...
