The expanded and revised second edition of Bacteria and Mineral Cycling of elements. Provides a detailed treatment of: microbial symbiosis; decomposition of soil; bacterial metabolism in the environment; and evolution of biogeochemical cycles, amongst other topics.
The authors of this book have succeeded with such a synthesis by creating a current, accurate and lucid review of bacterial biogeochemistry. The 10 chapters of this book describe, in logical order, the myriad of biogeochemical reactions in soils, aqueous systems and the atmosphere that are mediated by prokaryotic organisms. Throughout each chapter the fundamentals of microbial processes are presented in a way that allows for easy extrapolation to applied problems, including environmental concerns. This book would serve as a valuable resource for all those, students to professionals, who require an accurate, current, yet broadly based review of this rapidly evolving discipline. --SGM QUARTERLY
