Bioremediation, or enhanced microbiological treatment, of environments contaminated with a variety of organic and inorganic compounds is one of the most effective innovative technologies to come around this century! Practical Environmental Bioremediation: The Field Guide presents updated material, case histories and many instructive illustrations to reflect the evolving image of this fast-emerging industry.
Bioremediation technology has witnessed great strides towards simplifying treatability formats, finding new approaches to field application, more potent nutrient formulations, monitoring protocols and the resulting general improvement in results. This new guide condenses all current available knowledge and presents necessary technical aspects and concepts in language that can be readily comprehended by the technical student, experienced scientist or engineer, the aspiring newcomer, or anyone else interested in this exciting natural cleanup technique.

Review:

"The authors make a point to correct some of the misuses of terminology commonly encountered in this field... a resource appropriate for professionals, graduate, and upper-division undergraduate students, and faculty." -Choice The strengths of this new bioremediation guide are the clear and concise manner in which the authors convey the fundamentals and practical aspects of many forms of bioremediation...The book is very well organized, and presents complex concepts in plain language while providing excellent discussions that detail the major bioremediation processes and considerations. The authors have succeeded in producing an informative guide offering many facts and concepts in a format that is enjoyable to read... The book will benefit practitioners and novices alike in the decision-making of where and how to implement bioremediation in the field."-Jean M. Neubeck, Consulting Hydrologist, Alpha Geoscience ..."This book on bioremediation provides a great deal of fundamental concepts and technical information necessary to understand and implement a bioremediation strategy at contaminated sites. The authors clearly and directly communicate the basics of bioremediation in plain language that will benefit laymen and practitioners of environmental science... the reading in both easy and informative."-Northeastern Geology and Environmental Sciences "This very multi-disciplinary title is recommended for academic libraries and other special collections that cover the subject areas of environmental engineering, waste recovery, and environmental cleanup monitoring. However, it is more suitable as an overview of, or guide to, the subject rather than a ready reference source."-E-Streams, Vol.2, No. 2, February 1999
