Bioremediation is a process applied to restore contaminated sites using biological tools. The success or failure of this process usually depends on an understanding of the biotechnological process as
well as the strengths and weaknesses of the ecotoxicological tools used for its evaluation.

This useful book offers a unique treatment of the subject, linking soil ecotoxicity tests, bioremediation and environmental risk assessment. It also, describes the inter-relationships between the laboratory and field ecotoxicologist, the biotechnology consultant and different international environmental regulatory agencies and explains how they seek to achieve a successful evaluation of contaminated site restoration.

From the Back Cover:

Scientific evaluation of the restoration of contaminated sites represents a major challenge to the field of environmental risk assessment. The success or failure of contaminated site restoration often depends on a good understanding of the biological processes, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the ecotoxicological tools used for its evaluation.

This book assesses the current approaches, using case studies to illustrate key points. It describes the inter-relationship between the laboratory and field ecotoxicologist, the contaminated site risk assessor and various international environmental regulatory agencies. This will improve communications amongst these groups, leading to better evaluation of contaminated site restoration.

This book will be essential reading for all those involved in land or water reclamation: regulators, environmental consultants and industrial eco-toxicologists. It will also be an excellent reference source for graduates and postgraduates studying bioremediation or environmental risk assessment.
