Written by an illustrious group of experts in microbiology and aerobiology, Bioaerosols brings together current information on the nature and health effects of bioaerosol-related problems. The book presents up-to-date coverage of methods for sampling and analysis, as well as various approaches to the investigation of health problems caused by exposure to biological contaminants in indoor air. Its comprehensive treatment of the various aspects of this subject makes it a valuable reference for industrial hygienists, public health officials and researchers, and physicians interested in environmentally caused disease.


"If you are a facilities manager, an industrial hygienist, an occupational physician, a municipal or state health official, an architect, an environmental consultant, a teacher, [or] an HVAC engineer, you will find this informative and concisely written book beneficial."

--John D. Spengler, Ph.D., Harvard School of Public Health
