About this book

This book is designed to provide a microbiologist with the background and protocols necessary for examining the microbial biota of key environment arenas.


"This highly recommended book is likely to find applications beyond microbial ecology."Environment International
"Designed for use by microbiologists, this 17--chapter bench and field scientist's guide provides the background information, protocols, and tips necessary for investigating microbial communities. . .Biologists just entering the filed of microbial ecology will also benefit form this volume."--BIOSIS, Volume 50 Issue
