This introductory text explains the ways in which living organisms attack materials, structures and manufactured products, and the ways in which such damage can be controlled and prevented. New molecular and genetic techniques are included in this updated and expanded second edition and regulatory and safety issues are emphasized. The authors provide a broad overview, suitable not only for biologists, but also for those in industry, commerce and local government who are concerned with the preservation and conservation of materials of economic or cultural importance.
