Enzymes in the Environment: Activity, Ecology, and by Richard G. Burns, Richard P. Dick

By Richard G. Burns, Richard P. Dick

The necessity to comprehend the organic procedures which are vital for crucial aquatic and terrestrial environment functionality has brought on a lot examine into the sphere of ecological enzymology. This ebook offers the 2 huge components of software in a compilation of reports by way of 21 overseas specialists of their respective fields. the 1st explores enzymatic actions to evaluate the methods or mechanisms that function in a given procedure, resembling the rhizosphere, plant leaves and shoots, soil surfaces, and biofilms. the second one considers enzymes or microbial cells as sensors to realize microbial task and stresses as a result of toxins, administration, or climatic swap in either aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems
