In addition to drawing on the rich history of microbiology, the book includes discussion of the latest advances in biological and chemical oceanography and limnology to examine the role of marine microbes and viruses in the oceans. It explores the diverse collection of microbes (and viruses) found in the oceans and describes many of the processes mediated by these microbes in aquatic environments. Although oceans are emphasized, the organisms and processes discussed in the book occur in nearly all natural environments, including rivers and lakes.
The collection brings together concepts from autoecological studies of individual bacterial groups and from ecological studies of microbial assemblages.
