About this book

Forest Microbiology, Volume 1: Tree Microbiome: Phyllosphere, Endosphere and Rhizosphere places an emphasis on the microbiology of leaves, needles, stems, roots, litter and soil. This comprehensive title is split into five sections, including the phyllosphere microbiome, endosphere, rhizosphere, archaea, viruses in forest ecosystem and microbiota of forest nurseries and tree pests, challenges and potentials. Microbial communities associated with various host trees and different tree tissues are compared, and generalists and specialists among tree-associated microbes are identified. In addition, biotic and abiotic factors determining the composition and the structure of forest tree microbial communities are presented, along with the concept of microbial ‘hubs.' Together, the book's editors have 25 years’ worth of experience teaching and conducting research on forest microbiology, making this an essential read for any scientist interested in the forest microbiome.


Section A: Introduction

15. Mycorrhizal fungi associated with forest trees (ecological and physiological aspects of symbiosis)
16. Dark septate endophytes associated with forest trees
17. Microbiome of forest soil
18. Microbiome of decayed wood and forest litter

Section E: Archaea, viruses in forest ecosystem and microbiota of forest nurseries and tree pests

Customer Reviews


Dr Fred Asiegbu has been the professor of forest pathology at the University of Helsinki since 2007. He has a master’s degree in applied microbiology and plant pathology, and a PhD in biotechnology. His major research focus has been the application of biotechnology knowledge and tools for the determination of ecological, molecular and biochemical pathways required by emerging fungal and forest pathogens to spread, infect and cause disease to trees worldwide. He has been a member of the faculty interdisciplinary Master's Programme in Biotechnology and is also an invited professor at Nanjing Forestry University in China.

Dr Andy Kovalchuk is a researcher at the University of Helsinki. He has a PhD in molecular biology and has over 30 peer-reviewed journal publications on forest microbiomes.
