  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Biotechnology Deskbook

    Few topics are as controversial as the use of genetically modified organisms in agriculture, medicine, forestry, environmental remediation, and other industrial applications. Genetically engineered enzymes, biopesticides, plants that express their own insect repellants or are engineered to survive herbicides, trees and bacteria designed for ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • Of Microbes and Art

    Microbial defacement and degradation of artistic or historic artifacts is a worldwide problem affecting all countries regardless of their history, geographical location, or economic conditions. This is the first comprehensive study of the role of microbial colonization on the degradation of different cultural artifacts (from buildings to ...

  • Applied Bioremediation and Phytoremediation

    The production of a vast array of chemicals, especially petroleum compounds during the last century, has caused a serious deterioration in environmental quality. In this context, one major threat is posed by the continually expanding areas of contaminated soils and sediments.Biotechnological methods based on the biodegradation of environmental ...

  • RegenOx Design Manual

    RegenOx™ is an advanced chemical oxidation technology that destroys contaminants through powerful, yet controlled chemical reactions and not through biological means. RegenOx™ directly oxidizes contaminants while its unique catalytic component generates a range of highly oxidizing free radicals that rapidly and effectively destroy a range of ...

  • Novel Approaches for Bioremediation of Organic Pollution

    This volume presents an updated description of the current trends of research on bioremediation in the various aspects of catabolic pathways and specific enzymes, genetic design of engineered degradative microorganisms, bioaccessibility and bioavailability of substrates and nutrients and process development and field studies. ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria

    In this well-illustrated reference, contributors summarize current research on sulfate-reducing bacteria and examine their relationship to biotechnology processes. This approach enables researchers to identify and define appropriate questions for future research. Chapters examine the biochemical and physiological characteristics of ...

  • New Developments in Marine Biotechnology

    Biotechnology: Biology or Technology? Keynote Lecture; A. Kornberg. Molecular Biology and Transgenic Animals: The Paradox of Growth Acceleration in Fish; J. de La Fuente et al. Natural Products and Processes: A Novel Antioxidant Derived from Seaweed; W.C. Dunlap, et al. Aquaculture: The Development and Commercialization of Tetraploid ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
