About this book

Explains the variety of effects of and adaptations to high pressure in microorganisms.
- Summarizes the major findings in this field, and stimulates a cross-fertilization between the piezophile and the nonpiezophile high-pressure research fields
- Covers a range of issues related to high-pressure microbiology with a firm emphasis on microbial physiology
- Moves from basic science to practical applications, explaining topics such as thermodynamic principles, piezophilic microorganisms, food preservation, nonpiezophilic microorganisms, and deep-biosphere and deep-sea microorganisms
