Bioremediation, using microorganisms to degrade, sequester, or eliminate environmental contaminants, is an pressing want of our planet for cover and recovery from poisonous contaminants. This publication not just presents innovative information regarding bioremediation of aquatic and terrestrial habitats, but additionally highlights the gaps in our wisdom of the topic. one of the themes lined during this quantity are those who take care of petroleum spill bioremediation, bioremediation of heavy metals, and using genetically engineered microorganisms in bioremediation.
