Content
What are the action, coaction, and reaction terms and the definition of them, their differences and common features, assessing the importance of these concepts in terms of Environmental Engineering and explain them, particular microorganisms that have mechanisms of action to various substances, the reactions occurring while mikroorganisms utilize carbon sources exist in the environment, formation of nitrogen forms and mechanisms, advanced phosphour deposition mechanisms of microorganisms, formation of sulfur form, the reactions to existing significant xenobiotic substances in nature, reactions for degradation of recalcitrant component and know the reaction shown by certain microorganisms.

Learning Outcomes
1) Students know what are the action, coaction, and reaction terms and they can make the definition of them, they know their differences and common features, they can assess the importance of these concepts in terms of Environmental Engineering and explain t
