    Micro-organisms, including bacteria, algae, fungi and yeasts, can accumulate heavy metals and radionuclides with high efficiency. The author looks at the potential use of biomass for the treatment of toxic and radioactive wastes, and the recovery of valuable metals. He considers various biological mechanisms and recovery techniques, as well as the industrial and economic aspects of biosorption.
