Anaerobic bacteria often do not require oxygen, can survive extremes in temperature, and can withstand the presence of toxins and heavy metals. In addition, these organisms have very different metabolic processes from "conventional" microorganisms. This book explores the full range of these microorganisms.
From the reviews: "This excellent and extremely comprehensive 'up-to-date' book points out both the immense importance of anaerobic microorganisms in the environment and their extreme diversity. ! This book will be of great interest to microbiologists with a special focus on investigations concerned with microbial physiology, energy generation in microorganisms, and metabolic potentials in environmental and industrial settings. ! An exciting book with a high scientific as well as practical and environmental impact ! . Congratulations to the authors as well as to the editors." (A.Schmidt, Chemotherapy, Vol. 5 (2), 2004)
