About this book

A collection of detailed molecular methods for the environmental monitoring of bacterial populations. Methods include techniques for the recovery of cells, for the analysis of whole cells, and for the molecular study of target species and heterogeneous populations.

This book looks at state-of-the-art techniques for monitoring bacteria in natural environments, offers step-by-step instructions to ensure readily reproducible results, and provides numerous tips on methods for optimizing results. - Environmental Science & Technology, July 1, 1999 All contributions conformed to a given structure and so the individual sections have turned out to be compact as well as comprehensive and clear. They describe the principles of different techniques as well as their applications and limitations and most of them contain easy-to-follow protocols providing immediate access to a given method. - International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health
