Environmental Pollution Control Microbiology: A Fifty-Year Perspective illustrates the application of fundamental concepts in microbiology to provide a sound basis for the design and operation of various biological systems used in solving environmental challenges involving air, water, and soil. This book emphasizes the quantitative relationships of microbial growth and metabolism, beginning with an examination of overall metabolism and resulting growth of bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa, rotifers, and other microorganisms. It explains how bacteria bring about the stabilization of biodegradable organic pollutants. The text also discusses the proper environmental conditions for optimizing microbial stabilization.
