About this book

At the dawn of the 21st century, biotechnology is emerging as a key to enabling technology for sustainable envrionmental protection and stewardship. i;Biotechnology for the Environment: Strategy and Fundamentals&o; captures the dynamism of environmental biotechnology as it addresses the molecular functioning of microorganisms as cleanup agents, their communal interactions in natural and polluted ecosystems, and the foundations of practical bioremediation processes.
