In Situ Bioreclamation: Applications and Investigations for Hydrocarbon and Contaminated Site Remediation is a collection of selected papers submitted by participants to the international symposium ""In Situ and On-Site Bioreclamation"", held in San Diego, California in March 1991. The book consists of articles, which represent a substantial technical contribution, and technical notes, and brief technology descriptions or reports of preliminary or less substantial studies that proposes and exposes various solutions for the biological treatment of contaminated soil, water, and gas. This volume is one of two that represent the most complete and up-to-date set of papers at the time. The book covers the most comprehensive collection of treatises that presents practices in the reversal of damages to the environment. Solutions vary from proven commercially available technologies for some applications, such as reactor treatment of petroleum hydrocarbons in aqueous steams, to fundamental research in others, such as genetic engineering to develop strains of biodegradable xenobiotics. Environmentalists, scientists, students of natural sciences, civil engineers, and those concerned with the preservation and restoration of nature will find this book invaluable.

This book combines the results of current research with essential background material to provide complete, in-depth coverage of every aspect of in situ and ex situ bioremediation, as well as an extensive overview of the physical and chemical processes currently available for treating petroleum-contaminated soils. Critical information has been collected and assembled under one cover to provide a convenient reference for anyone who must contend with this worldwide problem. Remediation of Petroleum Contaminated Soils: Biological, Physical, and Chemical Processes describes how to optimize the biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons in soil-water systems. It reports on the susceptibility of various petroleum components to biodegradation by microorganisms, and considers all groups of microorganisms for their potential contributions. The book also deals with problem areas such as the transport of organisms, oxygen, or nutrients throughout the subsurface, as well as biodegradation of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and nonaqueous phase liquids (NAPLs). In addition, the book presents a variety of methods for monitoring bioremediation. This reference discusses current soil remediation processes and includes many innovative approaches. It also investigates means of controlling volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and leachate, and addresses methods for collecting and treating these secondary waste streams. The expansive coverage of this book will furnish readers with a wide range of options for developing treatment strategies and for customizing procedures for specific requirements.

In today's world, food security is an important issue. Food shortages push prices up, impacting upon the health and well-being of hundreds of millions of rural poor across the globe. One way to increase food security is to decrease the amount of yield lost to pests. The Pesticide Encyclopedia provides a comprehensive overview of the fight against pests, covering chemical pesticides, biocontrol agents and biopesticides. It also covers interrelated topics such as pesticide toxicity, legislation and regulation, handling, storage and safety aspects, IPM techniques, resistance management, interaction of pesticides with soil and the environment. An important reference for policy makers, advisers and students and researchers of crop science, this book also includes useful notes on commonly known plant diseases and pests.
