Overview

This volume presents detailed descriptions of methods for evaluating, monitoring and assessing bioremediation of soil contaminated with organic pollutants or heavy metals. Traditional soil investigation techniques, including chemical, physical and microbiological methods, are complemented by the most suitable modern methods, including bioreporter technology, immunological, ecotoxicological and molecular assays. Step-by-step procedures, lists of required equipment and reagents and notes on evaluation and quality control allow immediate application

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This collection of edited chapters … forms a manual of methods of soil analysis applicable to soil bioremediation. It is, therefore, primarily a technical and reference collection. … Each chapter is well referenced … and clearly sets out in detail the methods, chemicals and steps for each of the analyses described. I would recommend this book to practicing soil scientists, students and those working in the field of environmental remediation. It should have a place in all university libraries." (Kevin G. Taylor, IBBS, Issue 12, 2007)
