About this book

This book should be of interest to senior undergraduates in microbiology; postgraduates in biotechnology and ecology.

'This fascinating book begins with an historical review of the development of growth dynamics which should make it essential reading for any PhD student in the fields of population ecology, cell cycle research or growth dynamics.' SGM Quarterly 'In six chapters, this book provides an excellent overview of microbial growth theory and its implementation to microbial ecology... This book is well presented. The text is well written and the figures and tables are clearly presented are referred to in the text. Each chapter provides a very readable introduction to its particular topic...and is supplied with adequate examples to illustrate the scientific arguments.' Biotechnology and Applied Biochemistry ' earnest attempt to bridge the gap between laboratory and field studies. The book would be of interest to mathematically inclined microbiologists, frermentation specialists, microbial ecologists, and especially ecological modelers interested in incorporating microbial population dynamics into ecological models.' ASB Bulletin


Historical development of microbial growth theory; diversity of patterns of microbial growth in situ and ex situ; microbial growth under homogeneous conditions; heterogeneous microbial growth; growth kinetics and the life strategy of microbial populations; microbial growth in soil.
