Plant Biology for Cultural Heritage: Biodeterioration and Conservation
Getty Publications, 2008 - 408 pages
This publication brings together wide-ranging scientific contributions from the field of plant biology relating to the conservation of cultural heritage and offers fundamental knowledge as well as specific suggestions for practical applications.
Plant Biology for Cultural Heritage presents the work of dozens of scientists who have studied problems presented by the biological degradation of cultural heritage, tackling both general topics (mechanisms of biodeterioration; correlation between biodeterioration and environment; and destructive organisms) and specific ones (problems presented by different materials; various environmental and climatic conditions; and diverse geographic settings). The book also discusses solutions for the prevention and control of deterioration, including appropriate diagnostic techniques.
