Problem statement : Recent commercial and residential development have substantially impacted the fluxes and quality of water that recharge the aquifers and discharges to streams, lakes and wetlands and, ultimately, is recycled for potable use. Whereas the contaminant sources may be varied in...
Constructed wetlands are a natural alternative to technical methods of wastewater treatment. However, our understanding of the complex processes caused by the plants, microorganisms, soil matrix and substances in the wastewater, and how they all interact with each other, is still rather...
Human activities are affecting the environment at continental and global scales. An example of this is the Mississippi basin where there has been a large scale loss of wetlands and water quality deterioration over the past century. Wetland and riparian ecosystems have been isolated from rivers...
Increasing interest in the responsible management of technology in the industrial and agricultural sectors of the economy has been met thorough the development of broadly applicable tools to assess the “sustainability” of new technologies. An arena ripe for application of such analysis is the...
The “law of the minimum” (Liebig's law) states that usually one nutrient restricts the maximum quantity of biomass that can be produced within a system, whereas all other nutrients are in excess. This general rule has been applied also to the growth of microorganisms, e.g., by adjusting the...
It has recently been discovered that a number of synthetic chemicals and naturally occurring compounds released into the environment can influence endocrine activity. These endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs) are highly varied in structure, provenance, and mode of action (MOA). Many EDCs are...
Efficient tools for on-line and in situ monitoring of environmental pollutants are required to provide early warning systems. In addition, such tools can contribute important information on the progress of various remediation treatments. One of the recently developed monitoring technologies...
Phycoremediation applied to the removal of nutrients from animal wastewater and other high organic content wastewater is a field with a great potential and demand considering that surface and underground water bodies in several regions of the world are suffering of eutrophication. However, the...
