About this book

This work continues a treatment of microbial ecology exhibited in recent volumes in the series. In particular, it looks at marine and aquatic environments and the work being done in these fields of ecology. Chapters include such subjects as methane oxidation in rice fields and wetlands, biological phosphorus removal in activated sludge systems, the environmental fate of chiral pollutants, complex adaptive systems, and a chapter on the largest single-celled prokaryote, A. oxaliferum.
