About this book

Presents a state-of-the-art review of the current technology and applications being utilized to identify sources of fecal contamination in waterways. In addition to serving environmental microbiologists who monitor and seek to improve water quality, this unique new reference will be useful for researchers in the food industry, especially scientists investigating etiological agents responsible for food contamination.

Logically organized, Microbial Source Tracking opens with chapters covering background information on MST methods and the assumptions and limitations associated with their use. Later chapters cover a broad range of topics related to MST, including environmental monitoring, public health and national security, population biology, and microbial ecology. The concluding chapter offers valuable insights into future research directions and technology developments.
