This Cellular Origin, Life in Extreme Habitats and Astrobiology (COLE) Book Series contains volumes written by international competent scientists who are experts in their fields of research. These volumes deal with the Origin and Evolution of Life, the nature and general features of the first cells and several aspects of microbial life. A special emphasis is given to the microbial diversity and Extremophiles (microorganisms living in severe environmental habitats) all over the globe. The extremophiles covered in this series are the hot loving microbes, cold living cells, acid and alkalophiles, hypersaline halophiles, barophiles, desiccation, etc.

The microorganisms featured in our books are prokaryotic Archaea and Bacteria and unicellular eukaryotic Protista (protozoa and lower algae). The various sections of Symbioses cover enigmatic organisms which are associated or even live one inside the other body or intracellularly. These books cover many fields of biological, biochemical, biophysical and molecular research. We also cover new views of chemical evolution, Astrobiology and the possibilities of life in extraterrestrial Celestial Bodies. The current chapters are updated to the latest research level and are the first (English) volumes that cover most aspect of the COLE studies in new and updated lights. These books are vital for microbiologists, general biologists, theretical biologists, ecologists, biotechnologists and molecular biologists. Scientists working in the industry of soaps, detergents and petroleum will find some related information in these volumes. Biologists, post/graduate students in Microbiology, Ecology, Genetics and Astrobiology as well as anyone interested in the fields of Archae, Bacteria (including nanobacteria and cyanobacteria) and Protista or obtaining data on algae and fungi. Marine biologists, micropaleontologists, animal and plant microbiologists will find a lot of information in these volumes. These books may serve as good reference sources and for graduate courses in microbiology and for laboratory active research workers.
