The Journal Expert Opinion on Environmental Biology (EOEB) promotes rigorous research that makes a significant contributionin advancing knowledge about the natural world. EOEB includes all major themes pertaining to Environmental Engineering, Environmental Biotechnology, Toxicology, Forestry and related fields.

Scope of the Journal includes:

  • Soil Biology and Biochemistry
  • Ecology and Ecosystem
  • Environmental Biotechnology and Toxicology
  • Environment Management and Statistics
  • Bioremediation
  • Evolutionary Biology and Aeromicrobiology

Expert Opinion on Environmental Biology is a subscription based scientific Journal that provides a range of options to individuals and university libraries to purchase our articles and also permits unlimited Internet Access to complete Journal content. However EOEB has recently started following Hybrid Model of publication of articles. Under hybrid model, journal is giving option to authors to choose their mode of publishing; either Open Access (making individual articles freely available online) or Subscription (article access restricted to journal subscribers).

EOEB accepts wide range of articles including research, review, short communication, case report, rapid communication, letter to the editor, conference proceedings etc. The journal has a sound Editorial Board of experts in their fields. Articles submitted by authors are evaluated by Editors and a group of peer review experts in the field to ensure that the accepted and published articles are of high quality, reflect solid scholarship in their fields, and that the information they contain is accurate, reliable and beneficial to the scientific community.

Manuscripts along with cover letters can be submitted to the journal via online submission system or as an e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at editor.eoeb@scitechnol.com or editor.eoeb@scitechnol.org or editor.eoeb@scitechnol.net. Authors can also track the status of their manuscripts post submission through our manuscript tracking system.

Expert Opinion on Environmental Biology is organizing & supporting 3rd International Conference on Earth Science & Climate Change which is going to be held during July 28-30, 2014 San Francisco, USA with the theme of An Insight into the Recent Advancements in Geoscience and Climate Change Control.

Impact of Anthropogenic Disturbances on Methanotrophs Abundance in Dry Tropical Forest Ecosystems, India

Dry tropical forest soil contributes the highest methane (CH4) consumption rates on a global scale. Methane oxidation in soils is mostly accomplished by methanotrophic bacteria (MB). Several workers have demonstrated that the anthropogenic activity on natural forests disturbs the CH4 sink attribute of the soil. However, there is no information concerning the impact of anthropogenic disturbances in dry tropical forests for soil methanotrophs densitydynamics. Impact of soil differences in different forest types (afforested and disturbed stands) on methanotrophs density was investigated in dry tropical region, India.

Assessment of the Perception and Knowledge of Chemical Hazards Associated with the Handling and Disposal of Computer Waste in Kumasi, Ghana

Exposure to toxic computer waste chemical constituents is epidemiologically linked to a range of developmental and adult diseases, yet exposure-prone rudimentary techniques remain the mainstay operational modes of the informal computer waste management sector in Ghana. This study specifically assessed previously unexplored associations between worker awareness level of adverse health risk and worker adherence to exposure limitation occupational practices and broadly highlighted the contextual socioeconomic factors that underpins Ghana’s longstanding primitive computer waste management practices.

Monitoring of Metal Contamination in the Eggs of Two Bird Species in India

The eggs of birds are extensively used as biological indicator of metal pollution because they come from a specific fragment of the population, formed in a specific period, have consistent composition, easily sampled and the removal of one egg from a nest has a minor effect on population parameter. Many workers [2-7] have advocated the use of eggs to monitor metal contamination in birds as the birds get rid of their body burden of metals through feathers and eggs.

Impact of Cadmium, Chromium, Cobalt, Lithium and Manganese to the Growth of Fungi and Production of Enzymes

Impacts of metals to the growth and enzyme production of fungi were tested with Cd- (0-10 mg kg–1), Co- (0-100 mg kg–1), Cr- (0-100 mg kg–1), Li- (0-100 mg kg–1) or Mn- (0-400 mg kg–1) containing media with ABTS [2,2’-azino-bis (3-ethylbentzthiazoline-6-sulfonicacid)] as indicator of oxidative enzymes, laccase and/or peroxidases.
