Progress continues to be made in applying a variety of biological approaches to sites contaminated with contaminants such as MTBE, chlorinated solvents, and metals contaminants less vulnerable to biological treatment than hydrocarbons, the more common target of these site remediation methods. Sixty-three contributions from a May 2000 conference are arranged in sections on potential electron donors, microcosm and laboratory studies, MTBE, field applications of enhanced reductive dechlorination of chlorinated solvents; aerobic/anaerobic mechanisms; bioaugmentation and biomonitoring; cometablic processes; and phytoremediation. This is one volume of a seven-volume set of conference proceedings. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
