About this book

This is a long-overdue revision of the bestselling book on environmental microbiology, offering an in-depth examination of the role of microbiological processes related to environmental deterioration.

Based on the latest information and investigative techniques from molecular biology and genetics, this thoroughly updated edition emphasizes the detection and control of environmental contaminants. Its goal is to further our understanding of the complex microbial processes underlying environmental degradation, its detection, control, and ultimately, its prevention.
