This book represents a compilation of the major contributions of a NATO workshop on bioremediation of soils contaminated with aromatic compounds, which took place in Tartu, Estonia. It demonstrates the importance and necessity of interdisciplinary research in modern environmental biotechnology.
Addresses a quite wide readership working in the wide field of environmental sciences
Specialized workers in the field of environmental biotechnology should find the updated materials on several areas of this topic very useful
Scientists of other biological, chemical or engineering fields who have a general interst in the subject should find the offered overview particularly interesting
