Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written for curious souls of all ages, this title opens readers eyes--and noses and ears--to this hidden world. Useful illustrations accompany Dyer's lively text.

Book News Annotation:

Dyer (biology, Wheaton College, Massachusetts) presents a guide for naturalists, students, and teachers interested in "adding a bacterial dimension" to their nature studies. Written at a level accessible to amateur naturalists with or without access to a microscope, it is intended for use in field work. The text is organized by chapter according to the major taxonomic groups of bacteria, with guidelines on where to go and what to look for (and smell, taste, or touch) to identify a particular bacterial group. Includes b&w illustrations and 98 color plates. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
