Bioremediation Of Pollutants by D K Maheshwari And R C Dubey
The dramatic worldwide increase in the rate of human population has created severe environmental problems. Soil and ground water reservoirs have been polluted with pesticides, xenobiotics, agrochemicals, etc. The global consensus to eradicate inputs of toxic pollutants, which are perceived at being hazardous by consumers, have provided opportunities for the development of novel and benign sustainable environmental management strategies through exploitation of microorganisms.
