This book introduces bacteria and basic microbiological concepts to readers without previous background in the subject. Each chapter explores a particular self-contained topic and wherever possible points are illustrated through real-world examples and short stories. Chapters cover topics ranging from marine microbiology to bacterial toxins, enzymes, and the future role of bacteria in our world. Although bacterial scientific names are used and translated when possible, in general scientific jargon is avoided in order to make the material as accessible as possible for the lay reader.
