About this book

Biofilms are collections of microorganisms that, in engineered environments, have numerous positive applications for the modern waste and water treatment industry as well as the biotechnology industry. Uncontrolled, biofilms can create serious problems such as deterioration of dental surfaces, contamination of household products and food, and well as infection of biomedical implants. This new title combines fundamental principles of mathematical models, conservation of mass and energy, and hydrodynamics with basic principles of biochemistry and molecular microbiology to explain the rapid advances in biofilm science and technology.

The book is to be recommended ...(Biofouling, Vol. 16, 2000)
