Fungi in bioremediation by Geoffrey M Gadd( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 1,498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) Counter Bioremediation is an expanding area of environmental biotechnology, and may be defined as the application of biological processes to the treatment of pollution. Much bioremediation work has concentrated on organic pollutants, although the range of substances that can be transformed or detoxified by microorganisms includes both natural and synthetic organic materials and inorganic pollutants, such as toxic metals. The majority of applications developed to date involve bacteria and there is a distinct lack of appreciation of the potential roles and involvement of fungi in bioremediation, despite clear evidence of their metabolic and morphological versatility. This book highlights the potential of filamentous fungi, including mycorrhizas, in bioremediation and discusses the physiology and chemistry of pollutant transformations

Micro-organisms and earth systems--advances in geomicrobiology : sixty-fifth Symposium of the Society for General Microbiology held at Keele University, September 2005 by Society for General Microbiology( )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 996 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book focuses on some important microbial functions in aquatic and terrestrial environments and their influence on 'global' processes and includes state-of-the-art approaches to visualization, culture and identification, community interactions and gene transfer, and diversity studies in relation to key processes. Microbial involvement in key global biogeochemical cycles is exemplified by aquatic and terrestrial examples. All major groups of geochemically active microbes are represented, including cyanobacteria, bacteria, archaea, microalgae and fungi, in a wide range of habitats, reflecting the wealth of diversity in both the natural and the microbial world. This book represents environmental microbiology in its broadest sense and will help to promote exciting collaborations between microbiologists and those in complementary physical and chemical disciplines."--BOOK JACKET
Bacterial physiology and metabolism by Byung Hong Kim( )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent determination of the genome sequences for a wide range of bacteria has made an in-depth knowledge of prokaryotic metabolic function even more essential in order to give biochemical, physiological and ecological meaning to the genomic information. Clearly describing the important metabolic processes that occur in prokaryotes under different conditions and in different environments, this advanced text provides an overview of the key cellular processes that determine bacterial roles in the environment, biotechnology and human health. Prokaryotic structure and composition are described as well as the means by which nutrients are transported into cells across membranes. Discussion of biosynthesis and growth is followed by detailed accounts of glucose metabolism through glycolysis, the TCA cycle, electron transport and oxidative phosphorylation, as well as other trophic variations found in prokaryotes including the use of organic compounds other than glucose, anaerobic fermentation, anaerobic respiration, chemolithotrophy and photosynthesis. The regulation of metabolism through control of gene expression and enzyme activity is also covered, as well as the survival mechanisms used under starvation conditions."--Jacket

19 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing together microbiologists, mycologists, and environmental scientists, this work is a unique account of modern environmental mycology, and a pivotal contribution to the field
Fungi in biogeochemical cycles by Geoffrey M Gadd( )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fungi play important roles in the cycling of elements in the biosphere but are frequently neglected within microbiological and geochemical research spheres. Symbiotic mycorrhizal fungi are responsible for major transformations and redistribution of inorganic nutrients, while free-living fungi have major roles in the decomposition of organic materials, including xenobiotics. Fungi are also major biodeterioration agents of stone, wood, plaster, cement and other building materials, and are important components of rock-inhabiting microbial communities. The aim of this 2006 book is to promote further understanding of the key roles that free-living and symbiotic fungi (in mycorrhizas and lichens) play in the biogeochemical cycling of elements, the chemical and biological mechanisms that are involved, and their environmental and biotechnological significance. Where appropriate, relationships with bacteria are also discussed to highlight the dynamic interactions that can exist between these major microbial groups and their integrated function in several kinds of habitat
Exploitation of fungi : symposium of the British Mycological Society held at the University of Manchester, September 2005 by G. D Robson( )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fungi are a highly diverse kingdom of eukaryotic microbes. Recent advances in molecular genetics, together with the release of whole genome sequences of an increasing number of fungi, are facilitating their exploitation and commercialisation. Fungi have the ability to secrete large quantities of proteins of commercial value, and their complex secondary metabolic pathways produce a diverse range of bioactive compounds which have had a major impact in the pharmaceuticals market. In addition, the fungi themselves are increasingly being developed as alternatives to conventional chemically-based pest control strategies, and as bioremediation agents capable of transforming pollutants in the soil environment. With chapters written by international experts, this volume highlights current and future biological, biochemical, and molecular exploitation of the fungi in biotechnology. It will have broad appeal, not only to mycologists and microbiologists, but also to biomedical scientists, biotechnologists, environmental and molecular scientists, plant pathologists and geneticists."--BOOK JACKET

Fungi and environmental change : Symposium of the British Mycological Society, held at Cranfield University, March 1994 by British Mycological Society( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite an upsurge in national and international debate on environmental issues since the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, fungi, vital to the functioning of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, are rarely mentioned. This volume helps redress this imbalance by considering fungi in the context of the impact of humankind's activity on their habitats. The presentation of experimental evidence is a major feature of the volume. Contributions on the effects of global warming, UV-B radiation, atmospheric and terrestrial pollutants, deforestation in the tropics, loss of biodiversity, genetic engineering and chaos theory ensure a topical and balanced coverage, with both ecological and physiological viewpoints being represented. This timely review will be of interest to all mycologists and those ecologists concerned with environmental change

This volume focuses on the analysis of the filamentous life style, particularly on the hyphae which constitute the fungal mycelial colony.
