Detection, Prevention and Control
Biofouling is a persistent problem for many industries including the water utility services, industrial water systems and the food and beverage industry. Industrial Biofouling provides a comprehensive and informative guide to biofouling in these particular industries. Taking a systematic and novel approach, the book describes the problems caused by biofouling, how and what to use to detect it and, ultimately, how to control it. Relevant examples and case studies are used to illustrate the practical problems faced by each industry. Written by international experts in the field, this book will be essential reading for industrialists, especially those designing water systems, water distribution managers, process water engineers, environmental microbiologists, food scientists, biomaterials scientists and those responsible for public health and reduction of cross contamination within the food industry. It will also be an excellent reference source for graduates and postgraduates studying biofilms.

Lakota Belief and Ritual
"The real value of Lakota Belief and Ritual is that it provides raw narratives without any pretension of synthesis or analysis, As well as insightful biographical information on the man who contributed more than any other individual to our understanding of early Oglala ritual and belief."—Plains Anthropologist "In the writing of Indian history, historians and other scholars seldom have the opportunity to look at the past through 'native eyes' or to immerse themselves in documents created by In-dians. For the Oglala and some of the other divisions of the Lakota, The Walker materials provide this kind of experience in fascinating and rich detail during an important transition period in their history."—Minnesota History. "This collection of documents is especially remarkable because it preserves individual variations of traditional wisdom from a whole generation of highly developed wicasa wakan (holy men). . . . Lakota Belief and Ritual is a wasicun (container of power) that can make traditional Lakota wisdom assume new life."—American Indian Quarterly. "A work of prime importance. . . . its publication represents a major addition to our knowledge of the Lakotas' way of life"—Journal of American Folklore. Raymond J. DeMallie, director of the American Indian Studies Research Institute and a professor of anthropology at Indiana University, Is the editor of James R.
