Part 4 Chemistry of air, A. Moncmanova et al: composition and structure of air; polluted air; the formation of pollutants in industry and transportation; emission control; the analysis of the atmosphere. Part 5 The biology of the atmosphere, V. Betina and V. Frank: microbiology of the atmosphere; air palynology. Part 6 The chemistry of soil, V. Frank and J. Tolgyessy: soil structure; the main characteristics of the soil; inorganic substances in the soil; organomineral compounds in the soil; the categorization and systemstics of soils; the pollution of soil by non-natural substances; the effect of irrigation, improvement techniques and cultivation on the soil; the motion and conversions of chemical substances in the soil; soil analysis. Part 7 Soil biology, V. Betina and V. Frank: soil micro-organisms; soil fauna. Part 8 Human exposure to toxic and hazardous substances in water, air and soil (environmental biochemistry and toxicology), A. Farfasova and P. Tolgyessy: toxic substances; routes of toxic substances through the body; metabolism of toxic substances; disturbance of enxyme action; damage to the genetic material-DNA; the ecotoxicology of water pollutants; the ecotoxicology of air pollutants; ecotoxicology of soil.

   schema:description "Environmental pollution is a universal problem which threatens the continued existence of mankind, rendering it one of the primary concerns of society. This book provides a comprehensive view of the chemistry and biology of water, air and soil, particularly those aspects connected with the protection of the environment. The first part of the book presents fundamental information on the chemistry and biology of water in its natural state, and the effects of water pollution from industry, traffic, agriculture and urbanization. It covers the composition of natural, service and wastewaters as well as methods of chemical and biological water analysis and water treatment. The second part deals with atmospheric problems, particularly the basic composition of atmosphere and the different sources of its pollution, methods of restriction, and air analysis. The final part of the volume focuses on the characteristics of soil and soil components, natural and anthropogenous soil processes, the chemistry, biology and microbiology of soil, and soil analysis. This book will be of great value to chemists, biologists, physicians, pharmacists, farmers, veterinarians and university students, as well as to those engaged in the sphere of environmental protection."@en ;
