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.

Microorganisms are also central to wastewater treatment and the reuse of treated
wastewaters – we exploit them to treat our wastes biologically (actually,
microbiologically), and we must ensure that pathogenic microorganisms are
removed in ...
Most microorganisms, except for the phagocytic protozoa, have an absorptive
type of nutrition. Thus chemical energy sources and chemical compounds must
be dissolved in water. Water carries the solutes by transport mechanisms into the

Even though a particular species of microorganism usually belongs to only one of
the four nutritional types, some show great metabolic flexibility and can alter their
nutritional type in response to environmental change. For example, many ...
The polymerase chain reaction can also be used to amplify DNA from
microorganisms that cannot be cultivated. In such cases, providing a unique
