Environmental Biotechnology : Basic Concepts And Applications by Indu Shekhar Thakur
Book Summary:

Environmental biotechnology is a vast and rapidly growing field with increasing relevance for sustainable development through environmental protection and production of biomaterials. It has revolutionized the understanding of basic life sustaining processes, identification and exploitation of biomolecules, and its use in dealing with environmental problems. Biotechnological approaches can be applied to assess and maintain the well-being of the ecosystem, transform pollutants into harmless substances, generate biodegradable material from renewable sources, and develop environmentally safe manufacturing and disposal processes.

Audience of the Book :
The book is based on the postgraduate syllabus of Environmental Biotechnology/Environmental Sciences as per the UGC guidelines. It will also be helpful for the students of B.Sc. (Environmental Biotechnology) as part of the environmental science or bioscience programme, and postgraduate students opting for Biotechnology-related biodegradation and waste treatment course.
Key Features:

The main features of the book are as follows:

1.This book deals with an overview of the evolution of environment as also its basic components i.e. atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere, and the role of biophysical factors in ecosystem processes.

2. Important biotechnological principles and processes for production of valuable products are a special feature of the book.
