About this book

This book, intended for researchers and students in the fields of microbiology, biochemistry, and biogeochemistry, details the biology and biogeochemistry of various halophilic microorganisms that live in high density saline environments worldwide. These organisms are especially important to biodegradation and hazardous site clean-up. Topics include the biochemistry, genetics, and molecular biology of these organisms; new methods to type them; and osmotic adaption.
