Environmental microbiology is the study of microbial processes in the environment, microbial communities and microbial interactions. This includes: - Structure and activities of microbial communities - Microbial interactions and interactions with macroorganisms - Population biology of microorganisms - Microbes and surfaces (adhesion and biofilm formation) - Microbial community genetics and evolutionary processes - (Global) element cycles and biogeochemical processes - Microbial life in extreme and unusual little-explored environments

"In 2009, the third edition of the Encyclopedia of Microbiology and the Desk Encyclopedia of Microbiology published, providing customers with a six-volume compendium and condensed reference, respectively, on the vast subject of microbiology. This derivative will compile thirty-two chapters from the original MRW relating to microbial ecology (the study of how microbes interact with each other and their environments) and present them in a single thematic volume that will appeal to researchers, technicians, and students in the environmental science and microbial ecology fields. Classic and cutting-edge entries on topics including air quality, marine habitats, food webs, and microbial adhesion will be fully updated by their original authors (when possible), providing a up-to-date and affordable option to those with focused research interests"--Provided by publisher.

This book is a treatise on microbial ecology that covers traditional and cutting-edge issues in the ecology of microbes in the biosphere. It emphasizes on study tools, microbial taxonomy and the fundamentals of microbial activities and interactions within their communities and environment as well as on the related food web dynamics and biogeochemical cycling. The work exceeds the traditional domain of microbial ecology by revisiting the evolution of cellular prokaryotes and eukaryotes and stressing the general principles of ecology. The overview of the topics, authored by more than 80 specialists, is one of the broadest in the field of environmental microbiology.

Clostridia is one of the largest bacterial genera with an enormous potential for biotechnical and medical applications. Despite growing scientific, medical, and industrial interest, information on basic methods, biochemical fundamentals, clinical practice, industrial applications, and novel developments remains scattered in a variety of research articles, reviews, and book chapters. Responding to this gap in the literature, Handbook on Clostridia combines all of these topics into a single volume. The editor takes a global approach by presenting information on both Clostridia of biotechnological importance and Clostridia of medical importance. Experts in the field summarize methods, physiology, medical significance, regulation, ecosystems, genomics, and current and potential applications. Providing a comprehensive resource on the complete field of Clostridium, this book also serves as a compilation of critical reviews on the advantages of using Clostridia for new medical and biotechnological applications. It is a valuable reference for every specialist, researcher, and student involved in this promising field.
