About this book

Ice is melting around the world and glaciers are disappearing. Water, which has been solid for thousands and even millions of years, is being released into streams, rivers, lakes and oceans. Embedded in this new fluid water, and now being released, are ancient microbes whose effects on today's organisms and ecosystems is unknown and unpredictable. These long sleeping microbes are becoming physiologically active and may accelerate global climate change. Defrosting Ancient Microbes explores the emergence of these microbes. The implications for terrestrial life and the life that might exist elsewhere in the universe are explored.
