Environment and biotechnology applies to the use of biotechnology to study the natural environment. It harnesses biological process for commercial uses and is exploited for the development, use and regulation of biological systems for remediation of contaminated environments while developing environment-friendly processes. A systematic approach to biotechnology requires a degree of understanding of a number of disciplines, especially environmental engineering, systems biology, environmental microbiology and ecology. This book is a treatise on environment and biotechnology. It is a must for a basic understanding for students, teachers, professionals, researchers and industrialists concerned essentially with environmental science, microbiology, biotechnology and life sciences. It is also a valuable source of information for those associated with pollution prevention, sustainable development, biochemical engineering and agricultural biotechnology.
