"Understanding the role of biota and the impact of pollutants that enter aquatic ecosystems is crucial to the assessment, prevention, and remediation of damaged environments. Biological Effects of Surfactants synthesizes the most important findings from hundreds of articles and author's new experiments on the biological effects of synthetic surfactants and detergents on organisms, populations, communities, and ecosystems. This book offers a new perspective of the hazards of pollution." "Biological Effects of Surfactants lays an excellent foundation for scientists to explore how hazardous wastes are absorbed in aquatic ecosystems, determine hazards to water quality and what is required for remediation, and design the best approach to counteract the toxic effects of manmade surfactants and detergents, particularly using biological methods including phytoremediation."--Jacket.
