BIOTECHNOLOGICAL STRATEGIES FOR EFFECTIVE REMEDIATION OF POLLUTED SOILS
Koul, B. and P. Taak.
Springer Nature, Singapore. ISBN: 978-981-13-2419-2, 240 pp, 2018

The nine chapters in this book primarily focus on the utilization of algae, plants, plant-associated bacteria, fungi (endophytic or rhizospheric), and certain lower animals for sustainable bioremediation of organic and inorganic contaminants. Recent techniques are also covered, such as biochar and biofilms for carbon sequestration, soil conditioning, and soil and water remediation, in addition to recent advances in nanobioremediation based on biosynthetic nanoparticles. Case studies highlight successful treatment of contaminated soils by implementation of these strategies.
