About this book

In 2009, the "Encyclopedia of Microbiology", 3rd Edition and the "Desk Encyclopedia of Microbiology" were published, providing customers with a six-volume compendium and condensed reference, respectively, on the vast subject of microbiology. Aiming to reach students, researchers, and technicians directly, Eukaryotic Microbes presents chapters hand-selected by the Encyclopedia's editor relating to fungi and protists, including articles on yeasts, algal blooms, lichens, and intestinal protozoa. Chapters cover classic and cutting-edge research, and will be fully updated by their original authors whenever possible to include key developments made since publication. Appealing to a wide range of microbiologists and students, this book will serve as a quick reference to cost-conscious end-users.
