Beschreibung

The growth of the environmental sciences has greatly expanded the scope of biological disciplines today's engineers have to deal with. Yet, despite its fundamental importance, the full breadth of biology has been given short shrift in most environmental engineering and science courses.
Filling this gap in the professional literature, Environmental Biology for Engineers and Scientists introduces students of chemistry, physics, geology, and environmental engineering to a broad range of biological concepts they may not otherwise be exposed to in their training. Based on a graduate-level course designed to teach engineers to be literate in biological concepts and terminology, the text covers a wide range of biology without making it tedious for non-biology majors.
Teaching aids include:
* Notes, problems, and solutions
* Problem sets at the end of each chapter
* PowerPoints(r) of many figures
A valuable addition to any civil engineering and environmental studies curriculum, this book also serves as an important professional reference for practicing environmental professionals who need to understand the biological impacts of pollution.

DAVID A. VACCARI, PhD, PE, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Ocean Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey. He also serves as an industry consultant and holds memberships in the Water Environment Federation, the American Academy of Environmental Engineers, the International Water Association, and the American Water Works Association.

PETER F. STROM, PhD, is a Professor of Environmental Sciences at Cook College, Rutgers University, specializing in biological treatment and water pollution. He is a member of the Water Environment Federation, the American Society for Microbiology, the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors, and the International Water Association.

JAMES E. ALLEMAN, PhD, PE, is a Professor and Departmental Chair of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at Iowa State University. His thirty plus years of environmental engineering experience covers a diverse spectrum of academic, industrial, military, and governmental activities. He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Water Environment Federation, the International Water Association, and the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors.
