About this book

An exploration of the most complex microbial ecosystems with incisive reviews of developments in soil science. It presents techniques of chemical analysis, refinements of environmental protection measures, and methods for maximizing agricultural yields. It also addresses a wide range of biochemical processes and practical applications of advanced biotechnologies.


Anaerobic biodegradation of halogenated aromatic pesticides - influence of alternate electron acceptors; anaerobic microbiology in waterlogged rice fields; silylation of soil organic matter - extraction of humic compounds and soil-bound residues;mechanism of protein adsorption on surfaces and consequences for soil extracellular enzyme activity; role of biomolecules in the formation and reactivity towards nutrients and organics of variable-charge minerals and organo-mineral complexes in soilenvironment; the plate method as a tool for delineating the microbial world in soil; characterization of the soil microbiota with quinone profile; genetic ecology of soybean bradyrhizobia; recent advances in the use of fungi in environmental remediationand biotechnology; biogeochemistry of Mediterranean forest ecosystems - a case study; microbiodiversity of soils and its impact on public health and ecological processes; interfaces of soil biology with archaeological investigations.
