Bioremediation is a process applied to restore contaminated sites using biological tools. The success or failure of this process usually depends on an understanding of the biotechnological process as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the ecotoxicological tools used for its evaluation. This book offers a treatment of the subject, linking soil ecotoxicity tests, bioremediation and environmental risk assessment.
