Introducing environmental engineers and scientists (chemists, physicists, geologists, environmental planners, etc.) to biology, Environmental Biology for Engineers and Scientists covers a far wider range of biology than has historically been taught to environmental engineers and offers a way to train future environmental engineers. * Introduces environmental engineers and scientists to biology, a subject important in their professional lives, but which is not covered well in college * Based on a graduate-level course designed to teach engineers to be literate in biological concepts and terminology * Contains information comprehensive enough so that it can serve as a professional reference in addition to a textbook * Includes problem sets at the end of each chapter * Includes course material including notes, problems and solutions, and powerpoints of many figures for instructors
