Aerobiology: the toxicology of airborne pathogens and toxins by Anderson, Diana; Katz, Sidney A.; Marrs, Timothy C.; Salem,

By Anderson, Diana; Katz, Sidney A.; Marrs, Timothy C.; Salem, Harry

Aerobiology is the learn of airborne natural particulates within the atmosphere, similar to micro organism or fungal spores. those may be both obviously happening or artificially brought into the air. a number of the toxicological, pharmacological, and physiological results of bioaerosols comprise infections, bronchial asthma, and melanoma. learn efforts in aerobiology variety from remediating loved ones mold to scuffling with bioterrorism.

This e-book focusses at the toxicological points of aerobiology, contemplating the hostile overall healthiness results linked to the inhalation of airborne organic particulates. Read more...

Living Downstream: An Ecologist's Personal Investigation of Cancer and the Environment

The 1st variation of residing Downstream—an beautiful combination of particular technology and fascinating narrative—set a brand new normal for clinical writing. Poet, biologist, and melanoma survivor, Steingraber makes use of all 3 sorts of adventure to enquire the hyperlinks among melanoma and environmental pollution.

Principles of Environmental Science and Technology

Because the book of the 1st version of this booklet in 1981, it's been general as a textbook at college point for graduate classes in environmental administration, environmental technology and environmental know-how (for non-engineers). As this moment version is considerably more desirable, it may locate an excellent wider software than the 1st.

Biorefinery Co-Products: Phytochemicals, Primary Metabolites and Value-Added Biomass Processing

With a view to effectively compete as a sustainable strength resource, the worth of biomass needs to be maximized during the creation of precious co-products within the biorefinery.  uniqueness chemical substances and different biobased items will be extracted from biomass sooner than or after the conversion procedure, hence expanding the general profitability and sustainability of the biorefinery.

Seasteading: How Floating Nations Will Restore the Environment, Enrich the Poor, Cure the Sick, and Liberate Humanity from Politicians

Two-thirds of our globe is Planet Ocean, now not Planet Earth. think an unlimited new resource of sustainable and renewable power that might additionally deliver extra equitable economies. A formerly untapped resource of farming which could produce major new assets of foodstuff. destiny societies the place humans might pick out the groups they need to reside in, loose from the constraints of traditional citizenship.

Under conditions that explicitly included or eliminated cloud condensation nucleation events to generate a total of 20 unique residence times. The variations between similar sphere diameters from different references are largely a result of their different simulation protocols. In a more general sense, the variations in the table illustrate the complexities of deriving accurate and realistic residence time values from computational approaches. 3 can be used to arrive at meaningful conclusions about airborne microorganisms by relating their values to those of naturally occurring microbes in the atmosphere.
