About this book

Addresses issues relating to the structure and physiology of biofilms in aquatic systems, in particular, strategies for treatment and control.


Physico-chemical properties of biofilms - a short review; biofilm structure and influence on biofouling under laminar and turbulent flows; the effect of substratum surface defects upon retention of, and biofilm formation by, microorganisms from potable water; algal-bacterial relationships in steams with varying DOC concentration and source; allelochemical control of natural photoautotropic biofilms; physiological heterogeneity and biofilm control; modelling biofilm dynamics in drinking water distribution systems; importance of "clumps" shed from biofilms in a water distribution system; biofilms in process and industrial waters; the effect of extracellular polysaccharides on the resistance of pseudomonas aeruginosa to chlorine and hydrogen peroxide; practical experiences of biofouling in reverse osmosis systems; problems caused by biofilms in the oil industry; the biofilm ecology of microbial biofouling, biocide resistance and corrosion; biological control in granular activated carbon beds; control and monitoring of legionella pneumophila biofouling in a water systems; pathogens and metabolites associated with biofilms; the effect of aquatic biofilm structure on the survival of the enteric pathogen campylobacter jejuni in water; growth of legionella pneumophila is not dependent on intracellular replication; bacterial resistance to chlorine through attachment to particles and pipe surfaces in drinking water distribution systems; detection and characterization of biofilm by mass transport analysis ; analysis of material (biofilm) present on the internal surfaces of a drinking water distribution system; standard method to evaluate aquatic biofilms; biofilms in water distribution systems - control and remediation; relationships between total chlorine, particle counts and biofilm detachment in a drinking water distribution system.
