Aquatic Microbial Ecology: Biochemical & Molecular Approachesby Jurgen Overbeck
Synopses & Reviews
Aquatic microbial ecology, a growing interdisciplinary field, has become increasingly compartmentalized in recent years. The aim of this volume is to propose a framework for biochemical and molecular approaches, which are employed ever more widely in studies of aquatic microbial communities and ecosystem functioning. The book presents state of the art applications of modern molecular research techniques to a range of topics in ectoenzymes microbial carbon metabolism bacterial population dynamics RNA chemotaxonomy of microbial communities plasmids and adaptation to environmental conditions. Written for limnologists, marine biologists, and all researchers interested in environmental microbiology and molecular aspects of ecology, this volume will provide a stimulating introduction to this emerging field.
Book News Annotation:
Reports on the current state of research in selected areas of aquatic microbial ecology in which new methods and applications in biochemistry, molecular biology, and microbial genetics have been adapted and modified from rapid developments in laboratory experimentation and applied to field studies.
