They’re everywhere! In water, food, air, and soil. On the kitchen counter and in the bathroom. On our skin, in our intestines, and even swimming in our mouths! They affect us every second of our lives, but most microbes are terribly misunderstood.
Books for Educators
Encyclopedia of Microbiology
The Encyclopedia of Microbiology is a comprehensive reference that presents the ways in which microorganisms influence not only this planet but also the rest of the solar system.
Biodiversity: Conserving Endangered Species explores the relationship between habitats and adaptation-two important areas of biodiversity, a field devoted to the study of the variety of living things on Earth or within a specific area.
Cleaning Up the Environment
Cleaning Up the Environment: Hazardous Waste Technology is an overview of current and emerging methods used in cleaning up pollution. The book explains the advantages and disadvantages of the physical, chemical, and biological methods employed to remove hazardous waste from contaminated sites.
Conservation: Protecting Our Plant Resources discusses the careful and controlled use of natural resources for the purpose of extending their availability and retaining global biodiversity.
Environmental Engineering: Designing a Sustainable Future examines how this field, which incorporates not only aspects of art and design but also physics, geology, ecology, and the chemistry of matter, evolved from a discipline of civil engineering.
Pollution: Treating Environmental Toxins is a fascinating overview of environmental medicine, an interdisciplinary field including physiology, chemistry, and environmental science, and its development into an important area within human and veterinary medicine.
Renewable Energy: Sources and Methods examines the current technologies in renewable energy, a critical subject given that the world increases its energy consumption between 1 and 3 percent each year.
Sustainability: Building Eco-Friendly Communities explores the ways in which sustainability has influenced environmental science, how communities have begun to make changes in order to live in a sustainable way, and the impact of new materials on the conservation of natural resources.
Waste Treatment: Reducing Global Waste looks at the global waste problem and the different classifications of materials that are treated through waste management and examines the waste stream-various wastes that move through the environment toward a final disposal.
