    Physcia caesia, known colloquially as blue-gray rosette lichen and powder-back lichen, is a species of foliose lichenized fungus. First described by Georg Franz Hoffmann in , it is common across much of Europe, North America and New Zealand, and more patchily distributed in Family: Physciaceae. Book Chapters: In: Larry L. St. Clair and Mark R.D. Seaward, editors. Biodeterioration of Stone Surfaces: Lichens and Biofilms as Weathering Agents of Rocks and Cultural Heritage. Dordrecht, The Netherlands: Kluwer Academic Publishers; Other: Anderson and Shushan: Lichens of western North America Fascicle V. Dec. Biodeterioration is irreversible damage that is caused by the colonization of bio communities on the surface of sandstone monuments. Out of all bio communities, fungi play the most vital role in the deterioration of sandstone.

gives extensive information on the microorganisms involved in the biodegradation of materials, along with the biocides which are permitted for use according to the most up-to-date worldwide legislation.

Microbial biodeterioration of stone occurs as a result of the formation of biofilms (see Figure 3). Biofilms are collections of bacterial cells on surfaces that are maintained by electrostatic forces and/or adhering exopolymers.

Biofilm formation begins with the initial adhesion of microorganisms to a surface.

Biodeterioration is defined as any undesirable change in the properties of a material caused by the action of biological agents such as fungi, beetle borers, termites, and marine borers [48].

From: Durability and Life Prediction in Biocomposites, Fibre-Reinforced Composites and Hybrid Composites,   This book provides an introduction to biodeterioration - the attack on man-made materials by living organisms. The authors outline the principles involved, as well as the ways in which such damage can be controlled and prevented.

A wide range of organisms are covered (including bacteria, fungi, algae, lichens, insects and other invertebrates, birds, mammals and plants) and the 5/5(1). The main groups of micro-organisms found on stone and their role in stone biodeterioration are reviewed. The final section discusses decay processes which can be brought about by many different groups of micro-organisms living together as a complex microbial community at the stone by: Get this from a library.

The purpose of the review, which was subsequently published in the book Stone Conservation: An Overview of Current Research, was to inform GCI research policy in this field and to highlight areas into which Getty resources might usefully be channeled.

The deterioration may include loss of nutritional value, organoleptic and colour changes, and most importantly, safety may become compromised. It is the challenge of the food industry to control.

The colonisation of stone by different organisms often leaves biodeterioration patterns (BPs) on the surfaces even if their presence is no longer detectable. Peculiar weathering patterns on monuments and rocks, such as pitting phenomena, were recognised as a source of information on past colonisers and environmental conditions.

The evident inhibition areas for new bio-patinas observed on the Author: Giulia Caneva, Maria Rosaria Fidanza, Chiara Tonon, Sergio Enrico Favero-Longo. Microorganisms growing on stone monuments form a complex ecosystem, and they differ in their composition and function depending on the environmental conditions and on the physicochemical properties of the substratum.

Colonization of microorganisms on stone monuments and biodeterioration are usually linked with the by: 2. About Us The IBBS – The International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation Society was formally established in as an international, multidisciplinary organisation concerned with the biodeterioration of commercially important materials.

This article describes and provide photographs and advice on identifying, cleaning, and preventing biodeterioration or damage from algae, moss, lichens, or fungal growth that occurs on stone surfaces such as buildings, gravestones, sidewalks, stone walls, and in nature.

The biodeterioration phenomena observed on materials of cultural heritage are determined by several factors: (1) the chemical composition and nature of the material itself, (2) the climate and exposure of the object, (3) the manner and frequency of surface cleaning and housekeeping in by: Biodeterioration vs Biodegradation: the Role of Microorganisms in the Removal of Pollutants Deposited on Historic Buildings C.

Several control measures have been applied to prevent the biodeterioration. These include use of fungicides, biological control, prevention of biodeterioration by control of environmental conditions, periodic cleaning of dirt, dust and spores, and use of radiation. Biodeterioration 1. What it is.

Deterioration is a phenomenon that occurs in materials of every type, including those used in buildings, metals, stones of monuments and so on.

Any undesirable change in the properties of materials caused by vital activities of organisms is called biodeterioration. Or it is defined as any form of irreversible alteration, implying a modification in the. The first such conference ever held at the Met, the Art, Biology, and Conservation meeting provided an opportunity for close to 40 scientists and conservators to present their latest research on the interactions of microbes and art, and to offer approaches to counter the effects of biodeterioration.

Because of the magnificent response to the call for papers for the 7th International Biodeterioration Symposium held at Cambridge, UK, some difficulties have been experienced in the editing of these proceedings.

The numbers of papers submitted exceeded expectation and because of this it has been Author: D. Houghton. Stone monuments are subject to the deteriorative and degradative action of the environment and living organisms (12, 27, 45).Growing concern for the preservation of cultural heritage has boosted research on the biological attack on historical buildings (11, 15, 28).Biodeterioration processes result from complex interactions of surface-invading microbes with each other as well as Cited by: Abstract.

This review elucidates current knowledge on the significant role of fungi and lichens in the biodeterioration of stone monuments. The effect caused by many epilithic lichen species in the deterioration of different types of stone has been extensively investigated and by: Biodeterioration is the breakdown of food by agents of microbiological origin, either directly or indirectly from products of their metabolism.

Preservation on the other hand is the process by which food materials are maintained in their original condition or as close to this as possible.

This second edition of Food Preservation and Biodeterioration is fully updated and reorganised throughout.
