Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology
"Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right" --Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General
Edited by two world-renowned scientists in the field, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology provides a definitive and comprehensive coverage of water and wastewater microbiology. With contributions from experts from around the world, this book gives a global perspective on the important issues faced in the provision of safe drinking water, the problems of dealing with aquatic pollution and the processes involved in wastewater management.
Starting with an introductory chapter of basic microbiological principles, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology develops these principles further, ensuring that this is the essential text for process engineers with little microbiological experience and specialist microbiologists alike.

The polymerase chain reaction is thus a highly versatile and sensitive technique
for the detection of DNA, and, by implication, specific organisms. In theory it is
capable of detecting single molecules and in practice it has been found reliable

associated with warm-blooded animals, are likely to become stressed in natural
environments from exposure to unfavorable temperatures and abiotic factors ...
Other applications include estimates of biomass, detection of specific
physiological groups (Parkes et al., 1993) community structure, and physiological
