Handbook of Metal Biotechnology

Applications for Environmental Conservation and Sustainability

by Satoshi Soda, Michihiko Ike and Mitsuo Yamashita

"This book represents a broad sampling of the great diversity of biochemical interactions possible between living biota (microorganisms and plants) with metals and metalloids. A majority of the topics covered are devoted to sequestration mechanisms for toxic metals, but there are also a number of unusual topics addressed, including practical means of capture of precious metals and the use of microorganisms in the formation of nano-size materials with potential industrial applications. The book serves as not only an excellent departure point for students and scientists entering into this realm of research but also a handy reference for those already engaged in the area, as well as a rich primary reference source for educators seeking to expand their course curriculum lectures."
