Biosensors could be used to characterize the hazardous wastes affecting the environment through measurement of either specific chemicals or their biological effects. Information concerning the location, source and concentration of pollutants could be obtained using biosensors with faster field screening capabilities. It is also desired for these systems to be cost-effective.
The intention of this special issue is to focus on the latest advances in biosensors employed for environmental monitoring. We invite reviews and research articles with a broad scope covering bioavailability, toxicity, and multianalyte screening.
