Rapid industrialization, fast urbanization and increased technological advancement of the world during the 20th century proved to be a blessing as well as a curse on certain counts, as it also resulted in accumulation of huge heaps of environmental wastes and hazardous persistent substances. Advent of biotechnology in the last quarter of 20th century heralded a new era in combating the problems of environmental pollution. A new branch of environmental biotechnology called Biodegradation and Bioremediation specially focused on the degradation and remediation of persistent pollutants by means of biological organisms and/or their components. The present volume is a collection of articles on process mechanism and microbiology of biodegradation, sonobiodegradation, biodegradation of wood, bioremediation of heavy metals and soils, microbial bioleaching and many more for interest of personnel involved in disciplines of biotechnology, microbiology, biochemistry, soil sciences and environmental sciences. The volume 8 involves discussion on the following topics: • Process mechanism of biodegradation • Role of various enzymes of microbes in bioremediation • Mechanistic issues of sono-biodegradation • Renaissance of bioremediation degradation of environmental pollutants • Biodeterioration and biodegradation of wood materials by fungi • Bioremediation and reclamation of soils affected by acid mine drainage • Shifting of microbial community and metabolism in bioleaching process • Bioremediation of heavy metals • Microbial bioleaching for recovery of metals from industrial waste • Protein engineering for lignocellulose degradation • Soil-metal-microbe interaction and its implication on microbial phytoremediation • Marine microbial diversity towards degrading xenobiotics • Environmental biofouling and its control strategies • Biological waste gas purification • Recent developments in biodegradation of synthetic dyes by plant peroxidases This volume contains 15 articles from 47 researchers and/or academicians representing 8 nations, namely Bulgaria, China, Egypt, India, Iran, Pakistan, Singapore and United Kingdom giving an overview of the various research activities being carried out in different parts of the world in the area of Biodegradation and Bioremediation of environmental pollutants.
