Biological Effects of Surfactants
by S.A. Ostroumov

Biological Effects of Surfactants lays an excellent foundation for scientists to explore how hazardous wastes are absorbed in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.

Features:

  • Publishes new results from the author's research and gleans the most important findings from over 20 years of research including 80 of his articles
  • Reveals new data on the biological effects of synthetic surfactants and detergents upon organisms in aquatic ecosystems
  • Obtains data useful for selecting relatively tolerant organisms for purposes of bio- and phytoremediation and restoration of disturbed aquatic ecosystems
