Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Heritage Science is emerging as a discipline and this book forms a comprehensive volume on key topical areas of heritage science and discusses the threats to a wide range of heritage materials and monuments by biological and chemical agents of decay. It provides up-to-date information on subjects covering the component field of heritage microbiology, molecular and chemical analytical techniques, and the mechanisms of degradation and deterioration of historic ships and buildings. Extensive emphasis is placed on case studies and there is a valuable section on historic ships. This book provides an indispensable guide for conservationists and those interested in biodeterioration. (Abstract of book, not chapter).
