This book focuses on the toxicity of various organic and inorganic pollutants, their eco-toxicological effects and eco-friendly approaches for remediation of environmental pollutants. Extensive focus has been relied on the recent advances in ecofriendly approaches such as bioremediation and phytoremediation technologies, including the use of various group of microbes for remediation of environmental pollutants, etc. Researchers working in the field of bioremediation, phytoremediation, waste management and related fields will find this compilation most useful for further study to learn about the subject matter.

About the Editor

Dr. Ram Naresh Bharagava was born in 1977 and completed school education from Government Schools at Lakhimpur Kheri, Uttar Pradesh (U.P.), India. He received B.Sc. (1998) in Zoology, Botany and Chemistry from University of Lucknow, Lucknow, U.P., India and M.Sc. (2004) in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology from Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture & Technology (GBPUAT), Pantnagar, Uttarakhand, India. He received Ph.D (2010) in Microbiology jointly from Environmental Microbiology Division, CSIR-Indian Institute of Toxicology Research (CSIR-IITR), Lucknow and Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University, Raipur, Chhattisgarh, India. He qualified twice (2002 & 2003) CSIR-Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) and Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) in 2003. He was Junior and Senior Research Fellow (JRF/SRF) during his Ph.D. His major research work during Ph.D was focused on the bacterial degradation and detoxification of recalcitrant melanoidin from distillery wastewater. He has been authored one book entitled "Bacterial Metabolism of Melanoidins" and edited three books entitled "Bioremediation of Industrial Pollutants", "Environmental Pollutants and their Bioremediation Approaches" and "Emerging and Ecofriendly Approaches for Waste Management". He has authored and coauthored a number of research/review papers and two-book review in national and international journal of high impact factor published by Springer, Elsevier and Taylor & Francis Group etc. He has also written many chapters for national and international edited books. He has published many scientific articles and popular science articles in news papers and national and international magazines, respectively. He has been presented many papers relevant to his research areas in national and international conferences. He is also serving as a potential reviewer for various national and international journals in his respective areas of the research. He has been also awarded a postdoctoral appointment at CSIR-IITR, Lucknow, but left the position after a while and subsequently joined (2011) Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar (Central) University, Lucknow, UP, India, where he is working as Assistant Professor of Microbiology and actively engaged in teaching at postgraduate and doctoral level and research on the various Government of India (GOI) sponsored projects in the area of Environmental Toxicology and Bioremediation at Laboratory for Bioremediation and Metagenomics Research (LBMR) under Department of Environmental Microbiology (DEM). University Grants Commission (UGC) and Department of Science and Technology (DST), India have supported his research. He has been the advisor to fourty postgraduate students and currently, the mentor of one project fellow and six doctoral students. His major thrust areas of research are the Toxicology, Biodegradation and Bioremediation of Environmental Pollutants, Metagenomics and Wastewater Microbiology. He is a member of the Academy of Environmental Biology (AEB), Association of Microbiologists of India (AMI), and Biotech Research Society (BRSI), Indian Science Congress Association (ISCA), India. In spare time, he enjoys roaming in peaceful environments and spends maximum time with his family. He lives in south Lucknow with his wife (Ranjana) and three kids (Shweta, Abhay and Shivani).
