MICROBIAL DEGRADATION OF ENDOSULFAN

Over the last decades, awareness of pesticide hazards increasing
worldwide. Endosulfan is banned in most of the countries; though its
effectiveness against the crop pest and availability continued its use
extensively among the farmers of developing countries. Traditional, legal
enforcement and public campaigns is no longer adequate to prevent the
use of such pesticides in agriculture field. This book therefore provides a
new insight of bioremediation of such hazardous pesticide using isolated
microorganisms from such heavily polluted areas. Five separate chapters
present information of present scenario of endosulfan, detail methodology
and protocols for the isolation and culture of endosulfan degrading
bacterial strains. Detail qualitative and quantitative methods for the
estimation of degraded endosulfan have also been elaborated. Every topic
is supported with appropriate and extensive bibliography. This work
should help researchers in Microbiology, Chemical analyst and professionals
engaged in pesticide remediation.
