I studied bioremediation extensively in my final year at Sheffield 
University, it was totally tedious, but my lecturer was very into it. We 
did various aspects of bioremediation and concerntrated on the 
microbiological side of it. I used a book (I think the one mentioned 
above) as well as references from "An Encyclopaedia of Microbiology" an 
obscure (and mostly useless) reference book in 3 or 4 easy to read 
volumes -NOT!! It was quite good for bioremediation, degradation etc. I 
used lots of refernces from TIBS, TIGS, Journal of Microbiology etc, so 
try a literature search using CD ROM or BIDS. If all elae fails you could 
conatct my lecturer Dr. Milton Wainwright (he's a bit dippy but ok!). He 
is probably on e mail or you could write via Dept of Microbiology, 
University of Sheffield, Western Bank, Sheffield, S10. I hope this helps!??
