About this book

Contains the most recent updates on environmentally important bacteria, with current classifications of Gram-negative eubacteria and archeobacteria. Other topics covered include cyanobacteria as part of the prokaryotic organisms, extreme thermophiles and halophiles, gliding, budding, prosthecate and stalked bacteria, and more. The wide range of new subjects is thoroughly treated with morphology, physiology and metabolism updates.

From the reviews of the second edition: "This is the latest massive tome of the new Bergey, and deals exclusively with the Phylum Firmicutes, the low G+C Gram-positive bacteria ! . an essential purchase for University and Technical libraries and larger institutional departments. ! Its readership has to be all microbiologists, molecular biologists and medical and environmental researchers ! ." (Ann P. Wood, Microbiology Today, August, 2010)
