      Increased industrial and agricultural activity this century has led to vast quantities of the earth's soil and groundwater resources becoming contaminated with hazardous chemicals. Bioremediation provides a technology based on the use of living organisms, usually bacteria and fungi, to remove pollutants from soil and water, preferably in situ.4/5(1).   This book presents the basic principles of biodegradation and shows how these principles relate to bioremediation. Authored by a world-renowned environmental microbiologist, Biodegradation and Bioremediation presents microbiological, chemical, toxicological, environmental, engineering, and technological aspects of the Edition: 2.

Those fungi with known abilities in breaking down complex plant cell structures, the lignin decomposing (white-rot) Basidiomycotina, have been the primary case studies thus far in myco-remediation, but a much wider array of soil borne fungi and endophytes with lesser understood natural roles are becoming more important subjects of inquiry.

These pathbreaking contributors have also included illuminating reviews and case studies intended to expand the useful range of the methods. In addition, they discuss such major issues in bioremediation as the design and use of bioreactors, genetic manipulation, and the preparation and analysis of environmental samples.

Bioremediation of Environmental Pollutants: Three Case Studies Two CSU, Chico Biological Sciences faculty members use three case studies to explore biological methods to lessen the effects of various pollutants.

The first case involves the chemical methyl parathion, which is used to control insects in a wide range of crops.It presents the most recent theoretical and practical information on the use of various bioremediation techniques for the removal of many of the world's most serious and common environmental contaminants.

The case studies presented in the book will enhance the understanding of real-world applications of bioremediation.Environmental contamination from both natural and anthropogenic sources is, today, a major environmental concern due to pervasiveness and persistence of many toxicants.

It is considered as an inevitable evil of our progress and modernization. To decontaminate the soils, sediments and waters, polluted by anthropogenic activities, the scientists and technologists have evolved Reviews: 1.
