Microbiological Assessment and Monitoring of Environmental Pollutants

Individuals and governments have shown a great concern about the quality of the environment. Many governmental and non-governmental organisations are committed to activities that will reduce the effects of pollution of air, soil and water. Pollution does not only affect man, but also has grave effects on domestic livestock, wildlife, climate, forests and crops. Pollution management therefore needs to be prioritised by all governments.
