By Martin Alexander

Biodegradation has been the topic of energetic challenge for the prior forty years. lately, the sphere has improved to surround a wide selection of chemical compounds, a extensive array of concerns, and the improvement of the hot bioremediation undefined. This ebook provides the elemental rules of biodegradation and exhibits how those ideas relate to bioremediation. Authored by way of a world-renowned environmental microbiologist, Biodegradation and Bioremediation provides microbiological, chemical, toxicological, environmental, engineering, and technological points of the subject.

Praise for the 1st Edition

"Serves an immense functionality in providing an entire photograph of biodegradation within the setting. I[t] presents biologists, chemists and engineers attracted to this strategy with details complementary to their very own fields and therefore belongs at the shelf of every person energetic within the learn of biodegradation and bioremediation." --JOURNAL OF CONTAMINANT HYDROLOGY

"A compendious account of the sphere in a kind available to microbiologists, chemists, toxicologists and environmental scientists and engineers. His ebook succeeds admirably...Well listed, its diagrams huge and clear....It will function an outstanding textual content for complicated undergraduate and postgraduate classes and as a useful resource of connection with all people with a examine curiosity during this increasing field." --SOCIETY FOR basic MICROBIOLOGY QUARTERLY

"The publication may well function a textual content for an upper-level or graduate type within the rules of biodegradation and bioremediation for microbiologists and environmental engineers. In precis, Alexander has ready a cogent and well-organized overview of the rules of biodegradation in a publication that are supposed to turn out necessary to an outstanding many people." --JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

"Provides a cohesion of favor, and customarily, a superb highbrow movement among topics....Alexander does a mind-blowing activity of addressing the kinetics of decay reactions--the dialogue is likely one of the top i've got noticeable, in particular for these no longer good versed in mathematics." --BIOSCIENCE

"Written by means of a really an expert scientist...A very well timed book...Recommended as a worthwhile source for environmental scientists, engineers, or different folks with an curiosity within the use of organisms for environmental decontamination and a necessity for larger perception into the rules underlying bioremediation." --SOIL technological know-how
