About this book

Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology is considered a classic in the field of microbiology and versions of the manual have been in print since 1923. This new second edition has been reorganized and now uses the phylogenetic classification system. Since publication of the first edition, the field has undergone revolutionary changes, driven by major advances in molecular biology. In addition, the list of validly named species has more than doubled. This new edition will include descriptions of over 2000 new and realigned species, along with more in-depth ecological information about individual taxa.

Contents

Volume 1 provides descriptions of 407 species in 157 genera, including 172 new or realigned species. History, Etymology, Polyphasic taxonomy, Probes, Phylogenetic backbone, Microbial ecology, Culture collections, Intellectual property, Using the Manual, Classification of Procaryotes, Preface to first BMDB, Preface to first BMSB, Numerical Taxonomy, Numerical Identification, Bacterial Nomenclature.

Media reviews

From the reviews of the second edition: "The second edition of this well respected set is in the process of being published. This review is based on volume 1 ! and there are 5 volumes expected for completion. Volume 1 contains a wealth of information, particularly in background material. ! Bergey's Manuals are well-known, authoritative works in the field of bacteriology. This new edition is no exception, and should be included in all academic libraries and collections supporting research in this field." (Teresa Bowden, E-Streams, Vol. 5 (10), October, 2002) "At first glance, the first and second editions of the determinative Manual look reassuringly similar. ! More careful examination reveals a massive transformation; systematic bacteriology has changed for ever. ! Happily the changes are reflected in the growth of the introductory chapter ! . The reading of these generally well-written introductory chapters is essential for the proper understanding and use of the new edition. ! the manual has developed greatly, its standard of excellence remains unchallenged." (Max Sussmann, Microbiologist, Vol. 4 (1), 2003) "The second edition of Bergey's Manual is finally arriving on our bookshelves and promises to be well worth the wait. ! The Second Edition continues the high reputation of earlier volumes in the delivery of the descriptions of taxa. ! One of the delights of the book is the extensive range of beautiful photomicrographs of obscure and bizarre microbial cells. This book is an essential purchase for the library and, given the reasonable price, well worth considering by the individual microbiologist ! ." (Fergus Priest, Microbiology Today, Vol. 29, 2002)
