Mohammad I. Abdel-Hamid(Biography)
Mohammad I. Abdel-Hamid my B.Sc. 1981 (Botany), M.Sc. 1986 (Limnology). Ph.D. 1992 (Phytoplankton and Water Quality) â€“ Mansoura University, Egypt (PhD study program has been achieved in collaboration with the Norwegian Institute for Water Research, Oslo, Norway) and I have been working with the River Nile in Egypt, for more than twenty years. Water quality characterization is the domain of my researches. Eco-toxicology of industrial pollution is a particular research topic. Bio-assessment of water quality using freshwater microalgae (mainly phytoplankton and periphyton) deserved special research interest.
