By Richard G. Burns, Richard P. Dick

The necessity to comprehend the organic techniques which are vital for crucial aquatic and terrestrial surroundings functionality has caused a lot learn into the sector of ecological enzymology. This booklet provides the 2 vast parts of program in a compilation of experiences by way of 21 foreign specialists of their respective fields. the 1st explores enzymatic actions to evaluate the techniques or mechanisms that function in a given procedure, reminiscent of the rhizosphere, plant leaves and shoots, soil surfaces, and biofilms. the second one considers enzymes or microbial cells as sensors to notice microbial job and stresses because of pollutants, administration, or climatic switch in either aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems
