This is a specialised study of aerobiology, or the field that examines the biological components within the atmosphere and how these effect living systems and the environment. Here the authors look at different methods of analysing the risks of degradation on artefacts and buildings and measurement techniques for biodetermination monitoring, thus enabling the planning of preventive or reparative intervention. This is an English translation of Aerobiologia e Beni Culturali published in 1998.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"There can be no dout that this is a valuable point-of-entry source book to the field, which merits a place on the shelves of those concerned with the conservation of collections of all kinds, as well as works of art and buildings. It should also be on the reading lists of those taking couses in archaeology, librarianship, and museeum studies."
(Mycological Research, 108:1 (January 2004)
