Phytoremeditation & Environmental Biotechnology

P.C. Trivedi (Author)

Phytoremediation is the use of plants and their associated microbes for environmental cleanup. This technology makes use of the naturally occurring processes by which plants and their microbial rhizosphere flora degrade and sequester organic and inorganic pollutants. Phytoremediation also enjoys popularity with general public as a “green clean” alternative to chemical plants and bulldozers. The environmental biotechnology employs the application of genetic engineering to improve the efficiency and cost which are central to the future widespread exploitation of microorganisms to reduce the environmental application of microorganisms couples with genetic engineering techniques will make a major contribution to improve the quality of environment. The present book “Phytoremediation and Environmental Biotechnology” incorporates articles on various aspects of pollution and its possible management with special emphasize on Phytoremeditation, Bioremediation and Environmental Biotechnology. The book includes articles on Phytoremediation: A green technology for cleaning the polluted environment; Xenobiotic and Biodegradation and Biodegradation of Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Another major section includes articles on Environmental Biotechnology and its application; Biotechnological approaches for remediation of heavy metals contaminated soils and Microbial leaching of ores and environmental control. Articles on effect of heavy metal contamination of rice pathogenic fungi in reclaimed wetland and Environment control: A core concern in healthcare have added value to the book. This book will definitely serve not only as an excellent reference material but also as a practical guide for environmentalists, teachers, students and research worker in the field of environmental biotechnology.
