Bioremediation of Environmental Pollutants: Three Case Studies
From Jeff Layne
Faculty, Department of Biological Sciences,
Two CSU, Chico Biological Sciences faculty members use three case studies to explore biological methods to lessen the effects of various pollutants. The first case involves the chemical methyl parathion, which is used to control insects in a wide range of crops. The second case study looks at ways to remediate jet fuel contamination at Beale Air Force Base. In the last study, possible biological methods to enhance the degradation of bioplastics are presented.
