  • Fate of Pharmaceuticals in the Environment and in Water Treatment Systems

    Found in concentrations at the parts-per-trillion or low parts-per-billion, the detection of pharmaceutical residues remained elusive until instruments such as liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry became commonplace in environmental laboratories. As a result, the occurrence of pharmaceutical residues and endocrine disrupting chemicals in water ...

  • Uncultivated Microorganisms

    The number of existing microbial species may be in the millions, but only a few thousand have been isolated in pure culture and described. The principal reason for this tremendous disparity is that, mysteriously, over 99% of all environmental microorganisms refuse to grow in the laboratory. The phenomenon of microbial uncultivability has been ...

  • Air Pollution Effects On Biodiversity

    Biodiversity is the delicate ecological balance within biological systems such as species and populations. Evidence suggests air pollution disrupts and impoverishes ecosysytems processes, and genetic and population diversity. Based on a symposium conducted by the EPA's Environmental Research Laboratory, this book pulls together current ...
