About this book


In this well-illustrated reference, contributors summarize current research on sulfate-reducing bacteria and examine their relationship to biotechnology processes. This approach enables researchers to identify and define appropriate questions for future research. Chapters examine the biochemical and physiological characteristics of sulfate-reducing eubacteria and archaebacteria and review environmental and industrial activities of these bacteria. This volume features the first review on bioremediation by sulfate-reducing bacteria.
