Book Description:
The environment is considered the surroundings in which an organism operates, including air, water, land, natural resources, flora, fauna, humans and their interrelation. It is this environment that is both so valuable on the one hand, and so endangered on the other. And it is people that are by and large ruining the environment, both for themselves and for all other organisms. This book presents and discusses research in this field of study. Topics discussed herein include strategies for reducing carbon dioxide emissions; removal of aromatic organic pollutants; bacteriological examination of drinking water; ecotoxicology of heavy metals in marine sponges; and solid waste management practices.
